It's about how the league makes it almost impossible for a player to miss training camp. The part I thought was the most interesting was about Keenan McCardell saying it's about principle.

"I respect what those guys are going through," McCardell said. "People think these deals are just about the money, but that's only part of the issue. It's about a principle. It's about saying you're not going to let somebody treat you wrong."

Well these guys are making millions of dollars a year and even the lowest paid members on the team make upwards of $500,000. I'm pretty sure these guys are being treated well.
