If the NFLPA wants a leg to stand on, then they better agree to a reasonable rookie wage scale. Owners are risking HUGE amounts of money on best guesses. From Ryan Leaf to Jamrcus Russell to Reggie Bust to Vince Young and beyond, vast amounts of capital have been wasted on high draft pick busts. You can include Mario Williams in this, also. He's good, but FAR from great. I'm a capitalist at heart, I've NEVER been hired by a poor person, and I stand on the side of the owners. They are the ones risking hundreds of millions of $$ to billions of $$ against what a bunch of overpaid candyass risk. I wish to God that I had a salary like an NFL player has when I was riding bulls. I got a lot more busted up than any football player that isn't paralyzed has.
