Seems like the right guy for the job. As much as people loved the late Gene Upshaw, he didn't come off as the best from a business perspective. He was like that mobster/teamster guy who used threats of violence to get his way. In today's NFL - where it's a billion dollar industry - it behooves the NFLPA to find someone who can operate with tact in the meetings, someone who can negotiate on behalf of the players and doesn't resort to "wringing someone's neck" (as Upshaw was accused of threatening when he was head of the NFLPA).


And if there's anyone who proved he could get every last dollar, it's...hold on a second -

*smashes head against brick wall*
