Ever Wonder About Labor/Management Outcomes?

Just thought this quote from NFLPA Executive Director Gene Upshaw, was cute. I found it at, and they quote the original article by Ron Borges at

"Our players received just under 60 percent of the revenue in 2006 in salary and benefits," Upshaw said. "There's been a lot of discussion about the owners canceling the CBA in 2008 [when they can legally opt out]. That does not mean no more football. It means in 2010, there would be no cap. If the owners believe that's in their best interest to go without a cap in 2010, so be it. We never wanted a cap in the first place. This is not saber rattling, but whatever they're paying today, it'll double in 2010."

Hmm. 60% doubles in 2010. Not much left for owners if the players are getting 120%, eh?
