    They now join fans in their anger over owner lockout. If this lockout goes into the regular season, or worse yet, into 2012, it wouldn't surprise me for some to tell their owners to take a hike...........or decide to take a hike themselves.

    Pay cuts throughout NFL turning coaches, employees against the owners
    by Ben Volin

    Other sources I have read have put the number of teams cutting pay at not 11, but at least 12.

    Well, it is good to know the owners are feeling it.

    The owners aren't feeling squat, their employees are.

    They wouldn't be squeezing their employees if they weren't feeling it.

    Unintended victims? The owners knew full well a year ago when they opted out of CBA that it could come to this. Way to go keeping your employees loyal to you by cutting their income while you are worth hundreds of millions if not billions. Honestly, if McNair does this to his employees it will take a long time for me to quit blasting him. Has anyone heard if he has?

    Not as of the last I heard/read. He's not even making them come in and man the phone banks to hawk tickets. :D

    32 men hold hundreds of thousands of fans, thousands of players, and thousands of employees HOSTAGE with this farce of a "labor issue."

    The Raiders have the nerve to make their employees sell season tickets, when there might not even be a season, and other teams are instituting pay cuts and rolling furloughs, etc., because of how "hard" it's hitting the owners.

    If you can't keep your payroll going, close the doors forever and call it a day...but don't pretend to need these pay cuts when you're not even into the revenue portion of your business year. Other businesses in a "crunch" would cut costs in hundreds of ways before trying to cut employee salaries, and many bosses would even take a cut and maybe not even receive pay at all before doing that to their employees.

    32 men started this problem, and those same 32 men could solve this problem.

    IMO, these actions are just trying to paint the players as being the bad guys. The owners of those teams are fine. Those owners are trying to create a false sense of gloom and doom, trying to make a statement: "Hey, today it's a 35% pay cut. In August, we'll be cutting JOBS. Clock's tickin'..."

    The owners aren't feeling shit. Are you kidding me? They are passing temporary revenue losses down to employees, many of whom have nothing to do with this.

    NFL owners are 32 of the most influential human beings on the planet. The NFL is a very, very serious and lucrative brand. And the owners know it. That's the problem. Greedy bastards.

    The only owners that have announced that this will not be an option as far as Seattle, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Oakland, New York Giants, Indianapolis, and Dallas are concerned. McNair is NOT on this list.link

    I would be surprised if the Texans did this to their employees and coaches. It's not a good decision from a marketing perspective, and it would undermine the 'family values' vibe that they have worked so hard to brand into the Texans image.

    Redskins coaches side with owners in labor dispute

    WOW!...that was stupid. Shanahan might as well clean house now or 6-10 is going to look like a picnic.

    If the season gets cancelled, those assistant coaches............well, this is the closest football-related job they can expect.

    Oh really? So Ross spent a $billion without knowing the landscape of the CBA between the league and its players? Sure.

    From Chron.com:



    Wonder how this all plays out with the Texans players. Seems like Kubiak should have just let the issue die, especially in the light of the media.................

    Asked this morning why he would have publicly made his statement..........was he pressured by the FO......... Kubiak responded "It's all on me!":texflag:

    I didn't these coaches would be biting the hand that feeds them.

    Now, of course there are fans that have this deluded misconception that THEY are the ones doing the 'feeding'.

    Or, rather would that be misconceptual delusion?

    Why did Kubiak do this? Why did he pick a side? So frickin dumb. Typical.

    The proper response would have been "I work for Bob and the organization, but I also work for the players too. I'm in the middle, having to support and lead the players into each season of games but also having to represent the organization to the players. My focus is coaching, and this thing will be settled and we'll all get on with football at some point."

    I mean, this just seems like a purely political move by Kubiak. I guess I'd come out and publicly support the man (Bob) who inexplicably has weathered the storm and supported ME even when he shouldn't have. To that end, it makes perfect self-serving sense by Kubiak to support Bob.

    The Good Old Boy system in full effect, eh?

    The best move, IMO, would have been to stay neutral even at the cost of coming off as being corny for doing so.

    Exactly what I was trying to say..........sometimes it is better to just say nothing.

    Pretty much.

    Throws the challenge flag when he shouldn't.

    Calls for the halfback pass (on FIRST DOWN, near the goal line let me remind everyone) when he shouldn't have.

    Keeps his shanktastic field goal kicker when he shouldn't have. Offers a lame ass kickers competition...when he shouldn't have.

    The list goes on, but it's topped by his recent decision to support the ownership. He has to lead those players at some point. I wonder if that article will be clipped out by a player and tacked onto the players' locker room wall at some point? Dumbass move, IMO, when if ever there was a time for "coach speak" this is it. LOL.
