Brian Miller and I agree on an awful lot when it comes to football, but one thing he and I will not be on the same page with anytime soon is this NFL lockout. While I wouldn’t characterize Brian’s position as pro-owner, you certainly haven’t seen him taking it easy on the players either. I’m not so one-sided, I certainly can find plenty of fault with the players but I can find just as many, if not more reasons why no fan should actually support an NFL owner in this ordeal.
Regardless of how you feel about the players (and let’s ignore those feelings for a moment), the owners aren’t on the fans’ side either. The owners aren’t negotiating with the fans in mind at all, their interest in true NFL fans only extends as far as those fans’ wallets and purse-strings. And while that’s completely within their rights as businessmen, let’s not pledge allegiance to them quite yet. Give me five minutes and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
