NFLPA Warning Players About NFLVR Website

The website NFLVR.com is asking players to vote there to reconstitute as a union and for players to use it in assisting to do so according to the NFLPA. The site is not affiliated with the NFL or NFLPA and the players association has sent the following email to agents:

“We have received information from players indicating that they are being referred to a website – nflvr.com. The website is asking players to vote to reconstitute as a union and that the players can use the site to facilitate that action. Please be advised that this site is not affiliated with either the NFL or the NFLPA. You should ignore this site and advise your players to do so as well.”

The website now has the following wording:

“Due to recent conversation in between us and George Atallah of the NFLPA via Twitter, we have removed some content of our site. We learned that the NFLPA is not interested in doing voting on our site in order to recertify the NFL Player’s Union once an agreement has been made. We thank George Atallah and the NFLPA for the consideration of using our site and services.”

One Response to “NFLPA Warning Players About NFLVR Website”

  1. “The website is asking players to vote to reconstitute as a union and that the players can use the site to facilitate that action.”

    That quote is not what my website stated nor we lead anyone to believe. The purpose of NFLVR.com was to offer the service of providing a quick and easy place for the players to vote to recertify the union IF the NFL, NFLPA, and Players agreed to use it.

    Furthermore, there is and has been a disclaimer right in the middle of the front page of the site stating we are not affiliated nor associated with the NFL or NFLPA. Therefore, the reaction of a handful of players and the NFLPA was a little out of line in my personal opinion.

    Regardless, the entire point of NFLVR.com was to help the problem, not become one. Thus, after a couple of tweets on Twitter with George Atallah of the NFLPA I removed the voting contents from the site, Twitter, Facebook, and quit advertising the site as a courtesy.

    I will inform you and the general public that quite a few NFL Players apparently liked the site and idea because we had quite a few players sign up and vote.

    I will be happy to speak with you about this more if so desired. Please email me at the address I provided.

    Thank you,
