One thing that could hold up the resolution of the antitrust lawsuit against the NFL are the individual demands of Logan Mankins, Vicent Jackson, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees, one player has decided to let his opinion known.
Vikings punter Chris Kluwe posted the following on his Twitter page: “Sigh, and once again greed is the operative byword. Congrats Brees, Manning, Mankins, and Jackson for being ‘that guy’. #douchebags”
There is precedent for this. Part of the Reggie White antitrust lawsuit vs. the NFL in 1993 that instituted free agency, the plaintiffs were granted a lifetime exemption from the franchise tag.
An interesting way for Kluwe to get his point across, and it will be even more interesting to see how and if any of those that he slammed responds.
