Tagliabue Decision Draws Unfriendly Fire

November 17, 1990

I think I just heard a voice from the past!

My grandfather told me that when he came to this country he had to pay tribute to the neighborhood thug if he wanted to continue to have the privilege to work 14 hours a day to support his family. He had no choice. He had to work for both himself and the thugs or get his legs broken so that he couldn't work at all.

The edict given to Phoenix by the NFL commissioner rings of the story told to me by my grandfather.

I hope things have changed over the years and just maybe Phoenix can turn this blackmail around and give the NFL 24 hours to get their franchise out of Arizona.
