Should NFL players go on strike for guaranteed contracts?
Football may be one of the most violent sports in the world. Athletes put their bodies on the line, and yet they do not get fully guaranteed contracts. The NFL owners have not shown a willingness to negotiate guaranteed contracts.
Players need to strike in order to protect themselves and get fairly compensated for sacrificing their bodies.
These guys ABSOLUTELY deserve fully guaranteed contracts. Next CBA, expect it to happen. Especially with the NBA money pouring in.
NFL players are already getting paid millions of dollars to play a game. Shoot, Richard Sherman is making $40 million dollars of GUARANTEED money. A strike would only create a narrative of greed, and drive fans away. If the players want to make changes, they should stick to good faith negotiations with the NFL in order to get what they want.
A strike would only pit more people against them.
If NFL players strike for more money, you will lose hard working average fans like myself. I will never watch a NFL game again if it happens
