You could see it coming. Yesterday, a judge dismissed a lawsuit against the NFL Player's Association by 3,500 retired players seeking compensation and benefits that most of them never received. Worse, he only plans to allow one more deposition in the case before closing it off to future discovery. Basically, he is dismissing the case with prejudice (on perhaps more than one level) because he thinks that not only is there not a case, but that there will never be a case. I'm sorry, but the fact that there are 3,500 plaintiffs with a legitimate gripe alone warrants at least a fair hearing. But I forgot, this is America. Fairness ends where money and power begin.

Because only someone in bed with big money thinks the way Judge William Alsup and others like him do. Either that or they're drunk off the power that being a judge carries. It's considerable power, to be sure, which is why it should be entrusted carefully. Like the end of JFK, the NFLPA knew they were going to get off, because scum knows its own kind. I just wish I knew how much of the retirees' rightful money the NFLPA and Gene "John Walker Lindh" Upshaw slipped under his table. Like Lindh, Upshaw has not only turned his back on where he came from, but is fighting against it as well. It is every bit the valid comparison.

In the meantime, retired players, don't stop fighting. Without you, there would be no NFL. Someday, someone with real power will finally get the message.
