Default Re: Steelers players vote to decertify

Quote:
Batch, a member of the NFLPA executive committee, said the players can't sign a new CBA until the owners disclose their profits.

"They're not willing to do that," he said of owners opening their financial books.
the owners are claiming meager profit margins as their basis for their actions. if there's any truth to it , why not open up the books ?
