glad to see those uppity players get what’s coming to them
What if he wasn't working out at all to protect his contract? How would the fans feel about that?
What if he was doing something he shouldn’t be doing and knows but is just lying saying he was working out? To try hopefully cover his ***? How would fans feel about that?
Fans are going hate.
Serious question. Player drives out of facility, stops to get gas, steps out of car and trips. While doing so, he tears his ACL and is done for the season. Can they cut him and not pay him?
If he did this at a gym, there is most likely video and/or witnesses.
This guy has only played a handful of games for Denver, sat out last year, and now was towing the union line while collecting millions.
So what’s the message? Don’t work out unless you are at the team facility? That’s dumb, anyone mocking this guy is a clown, he was trying to workout on his own time to be ready for the season
The guy went from working out at the team facilities before voluntary work outs to working out privately when he should. Just because the NFLPA were trying to prove some point.
The NFLPA just negotiated a new CBA a year ago. If they had an issue that is the time to take it up. If you sign the CBA you live with what you signed.
What you don't do is sign the CBA then bitch about it.
Now the players have every right to not work out for voluntary workouts, but teams also have every right to not pay them if they injure themselves. That's how contracts work.
He was working out at the team facilities all off season. He stopped working out there because the NFLPA said "Hey guys. We don't like how we feel pressured to leave home and come work out at the team facilities so let's show the man and say we aren't turning up because of Covid. Even though we all know that's BS".
So then James started working out privately and now he isn't covered.
The NFLPA have been playing games and this is the price. If they have issues with voluntary workouts they should have covered it in the CBA they just signed a year ago.
While the broncos may not have to pay him, I would bet he has some sort of injury insurance. It may not be for the 10 mil, but I would lay odds his family won't go hungry.
100% agree its all an if. They'll be able to prove one way or another if they really want to. They also do.
