" . . .Upshaw’s death raises a big question mark about negotiations although the union’s executive committee tried to answer it quickly by appointing the union’s most experienced official, Richard Berthelsen, as the interim executive director.

Berthelsen, the NFLPA’s chief counsel and Upshaw’s top aide, has been involved in labor negotiations for 37 years and is expected to steer the union through the negotiations and then make way for a younger man, probably an ex-player such as Trace Armstrong or Troy Vincent, two past presidents, or former Minnesota running back Robert Smith, who has expressed an interest in the job."

I strongly agree with Troy, it's getting ridiculous. The "roughing the passer" call on James Harrison is an example. It's getting to the point where defensive players can't even touch the QB.

It is really getting ridiculous, I agree. It has become much the same way in the NHL. Football and hockey are physical sports - let the guys play for God's sake!!! What's next - ballerina skirts instead of uniforms?
