Dear Jolly Roger,
Don't do it. Do not let greed ruin this game. You have a good thing. Your league just got done with the most watched Super Bowl in NFL history. People like the NFL. We spend money, we watch the TV and go to the stadium. I will have no sympathy if millionaire's are fighting with billionaires and I can't afford to take my son to a game.
I don't want to hear your party line about how you are "working on it" or "everyone has to work together." I want you to do it. I WANT ACTION NOW! I want your labor unrest solved. Greed ruined baseball, greed ruined the NHL and if you aren't careful and you don't corral the ego's of your greedy owners, it will ruin the NFL.
I DO NOT WANT AN 18 GAME SEASON! Stop telling me what I want, because I don't want it. Here's a thought, stop gouging the fans and have a set price for pre-season games. There are a lot of great stories about how guys are the last pick in the NFL, they work hard, PROVE THEMSELVES in the PRE SEASON and then become stars, Redzone Redman of the Pittsburgh Steelers come to mind. Put a rookie wage scale in. The rookie wage scale is good. Make these guys prove themselves. Stop telling them they are above everyone before they even take a snap in the NFL. I'm sure this is easier said than done, BUT THATS YOUR JOB!
I don't want a water downed NFL. It took the MLB nearly a decade to recover and the NHL still isn't the same. I want the hard hitting NFL that I have been watching for years. DO NOT SELL ME SOMETHING, IT SELLS IT SELF!
Roger, I swear, if there is no football next year, you will lose me as a fan. I am a die hard Steeler fan, and will always love them. But I won't buy the jersey's, the tickets or the TV packages if you and the greedy owners allow it to happen. You already pissed off Steeler Nation enough, DO NOT LOSE US FOREVER. DO YOUR JOB!

A loyal fan, but Not For Long,

Steelerfan

Buy your Steelers gear DIRECTLY from the Steelers, the last time I bought gear from them I asked if they get to keep the lions share of the money I spent and they said they couldn't comment on it but that buying directly from the Steelers centainly couldn't hurt :wink: .


I am pretty sure most of the money would go to the Steelers unlike the merchandise you buy at various outlets not Steelers which goes DIRECTLY into the general revenue sharing pool. Use your dollars to support the Steelers NOT the NFL. Which to quote Jerry Glanville stands for Not For Long if these bitch#s keep this sheet up!
