The NFL lockout got a little more interesting yesterday when a group of retired players, including Steeler great Franco Harris, filed a class-action complaint against owners and current players. The retired players have not been included in the mediation sessions and currently do not have a say in any resolution to the lockout.
“Through the settlement they are forging, the Brady plaintiffs, the NFLPA and the NFL defendants are conspiring to set retiree benefits and pension levels at artificially low levels,” the complaint alleged.
As much as I want the lockout to end right now, retired players should have their say in negotiations. Come on guys. Can’t we all just hug it out and get along?
