New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees among players who have filed antitrust lawsuit against the NFL

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees among players who have filed antitrust lawsuit against the NFL | NOLA.com



New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are among the players who have filed an antitrust lawsuit against the NFL to prevent a lockout.


Just after the players' union decertified Friday, the players filed suit against the NFL in U.S. District Court, seeking class-action against the league. They also filed a request for an injunction that would keep the NFL and the teams from engaging in a lockout.
The collective bargaining agreement with the league expires at the end of Friday.
Also included in the lawsuit are Vincent Jackson, Ben Leber, Logan Mankins, Brian Robison, Osi Umenyiora, Mike Vrabel, and Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller, who is entered in this year's draft.
The players allege that the NFL conspired to deny the players' ability to market their services.




Shouldn't Drew Brees be suing the NFLPA too?

I respect Brees but he's misguided on this one. The owners gave up more than they should have 4 years ago when they signed the CBA and now they won't back down trying to get it back. Players are employees of the Owners who OWN THE TEAMS! The put up the money to buy it and they take all the risks on the outcome of that organization. When players start risking their lives like men and women in the Armed Forces maybe we can discuss paying them a little more but until then, SHUT THE HELL UP YOU CRY BABIES!

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.
