Well, the NFLPA is decertifying, the lockout is upon us, and there hardly is anything more to say about the subject. It becomes a period of watching and waiting to see which group of exceedingly greedy and selfish professional sports groups blinks first. While I previously have written about how fans feel (generally) about this matter in NFL Determined to Throw Fans for a Loss, it only just occurred to me to give at least one fan a forum to let loose about the unmitigated gall and greed of these organizations.
The whole 2011 season ticket invoicing scheme from most, if not all, of the NFL teams is just starting to make it’s run around the sports talk shows and publications. Here is an angry email I received from a Philadelphia Eagles’ season-ticket holder, Mr. Robert Whalon, and I reprint it with his permission. Mr. Whalon brings some serious heat and anger, and it’s a rage that is undoubtedly stoking the angry fire of fans across the nation. It’s a well-written flame-fest directed at the Philadelphia Eagles and apropos to the entire NFL.
