Football Fans Unite!

The regular season is in full swing.  Thousands of hours are spent discussing week one match ups and how well or horrible our teams will fare in that first game of the season.  Millions of dollars are already spent buying tickets, team apparel and tailgating equipment/supplies(beer). 

This is our way of showing how much we love the game of football.  It has become a part of our being and it has dictated the way we have lived our lives for years.

 

So how would you feel if you found out that there won't be another season of football next year?

 

I know it sounds horrible, but it's definitely a reality we could be facing if the NFL and the NFLPA are not able to work out a new deal that can benefit both parties.  Both sides are too busy looking out for themselves, but they're forgetting one thing.

 

The fans.

 

Im not going to bother you with the details, but here's the gist of it.  THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR MONEY.

It seems like a long shot or a lot of work, but we DO have a say in this. We DO have the power to affect these negotiations.  A say in how things should turn out to be. We CAN make a difference.

 The fans are the staple of every single NFL team out there.  Football wouldn't be as big and NFL would not be as successful as it is without us, the fans.

 

Im not much of a thinking man(or a writing man for that matter), but I do have plenty of passion for this sport. And I know that you do as well.  We need to come together and let our voices be heard.

 

We need to create a union for the fans so we can keep this important facet of our life from drowning in the bottomless pit of greed.

 

We can dictate the future of our sport.
