Guest Gritz Posted May 23, 2011 Share Posted May 23, 2011 is the bulk of the fan base of the NFL becoming an organized, cohesive group.I know in the past there have been various calls for fans to organize during one of these protracted labor situations in the NFL. Like many of you I roll my eyes when I see an article somewhere or a thread on a message board that tries to organize fans.And it's very strange in a sense, because invariably we (the fans) are always mentioned when you hear someone talking about this situation.....whether it's DeMaurice Smith, Goodell, Brees, Brady, etc....but we are used as pawns, pawns without any representation. All of the parties I mentioned like to pay lip service to the fans.For an entity that is absolutely crucial to the success of the NFL we have virtually no say in this situation. We are relegated to bystander status.The only thing that the owners and players seem to have in common at this point is how they view the fans:An always-open ATM machine with unlimited and never-dying loyalty.
