New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is in Washington D.C. for today's critical negotiating session between the NFL's owners and players.

As a vice president of the NFL Players Association, Brees has been at the forefront of these labor talks, and he spoke out to the fan base about where the players stand via Twitter on Friday morning:

"To our fans - I give you my word that we as players are doing everything we can to negotiate with the NFL towards a fair deal ... The NFL brought this fight to us - they want $1 billion back, we just want financial information to back up that request ... They refuse to give that information to us. They think we should just trust them. Would you? ... We have a responsibility to our players - past, present, and future, to advance this league forward, not take 3 steps back. ... I am very sorry that you as fans have to endure this. Football is more than just a game for all of us. We will keep fighting...always"

Screw showing the books!! Where else can you be GARE-UN-TEED 20 million without even stepping foot on a field?

Would I trust them? Does it matter? Hell each player obviously bargins and deals for their own paycheck! What is this collective BS about. How about you sign a freaking contarct you don't sit out as a protest to get an extension?!

What a bunch of BS!!!

Earthquakes, tsunamis, drastic unemployment, the decimation of the middle class through taxation, and these guys are squabbling over how to split OUR billions. We are the chumps for paying $8 for a beer in the stadium and shelling out all the cash for the jerseys and hats. The overwhelming greed on both sides is an insult to the fans. The players walking away from the table is even worse. I think it's time to start a fan's union. We have the right to spend our money elsewhere, and that's what we should do. Love your heart Drew, but you and the rest of the league are wrong. Take care of the fans, get back to the table and work it out. We, as fans, have had enough of the rich arguing with the richer over who gets to take more home.
