Striking Out at Both the Owners and Players

October 17, 1987

I am surprised by the NFLPA. None of you realized what the owners were actually doing.

Remember the USFL, free enterprise, free agency and a lot of football? How many ex-USFL players are NFL players today?

Free agency died with the USFL. Our judicial system proved that the NFL is monopolizing the three major television networks, then served sentence by killing the USFL. Justice supports the NFL's monopoly. If only FOX-TV had existed then.

The owners know they have a monopoly and it's legal. They just took advantage of it.
