J.J. Watt Voices Thoughts on New CBA Proposal: 'Hard No'

https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/02/21/jj...oposal-hard-no

Watt is not alone in voicing his concerns on the proposal. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman supported the Texans' star on social media. Others, including Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette. Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari have also raised possible concerns.

To put it simple, the owners of this league suck and are greedy as hell just trying to find more ways to make more money.
Well, duh! The NFL is a business. In business you look for ways to increase revenues. They have been doing this for decades. This is why it is the most successful sports league in the world.

And you apparently are oblivious to the fact that no team will have more home games than any other. The extra game would be on a neutral field thus giving more fans the opportunity to attend an NFL game in person. Every team will still play eight home and away. In fact, this would eliminate some of those "home" games being played in London, Japan or Mexico. Once again, a good thing for fans.

And what terrible results are you referring to with the expansion of the playoffs?


I am Believing!

The vocal minority. From my understanding most players are in favor as it will give them an extra paycheck. This isn't as important to the elite few like Watt and Sherman, but to the average player that may only be in the league for a few years it is huge.

One more thing, the proposed CBA will also eliminate testing for marijuana. Once again, another goal of the NFLPA.

Not eliminate, narrow the window for marijuana testing.

It would be removed from the list of banned substances and "National Football League players would no longer face the possibility of being suspended from games just for testing positive for marijuana".

It might as well be "eliminated" if it is no longer banned and carries no suspensions, don't you think?

There are no details yet, but "two of the key terms in the proposed CBA are an overall reduction in on-field fines and a reduction in club fines."

Union says fines will be reduced in new CBA

It goes to a vote of the full union membership. The elite few players coming out vocally against are not the ones making the decision. The rank and file players are the ones that will receive the most good from the proposal. And it gets approved at one vote over 50%. We'll see. As for a lockout, there is over a year before an agreement needs to be reached. The current CBA remains in affect through the end of the 2020 season in March 2021.
