    Here is another consequence. Players who are up for a new contract 2018 are fucked. Owners are going to show declining ratings, declining ad revenues, declining merchandise, declining ticket sales, etc. and use as leverage not to pay the players what they want. It will still be a hefty sum compared to people in the real world but otherwise "less".

    If I own a company that makes widgets and own stock in a company that makes airplanes, does the widget company own the airline?

    If I own stock in Ford, does that mean I own stock in the Lions? No!

    The fact remains that Ford Motor Company does not own the Lions. You are simply wrong.

    That is the most ignorant statement I have seen in quite a while.

    I guess I didn't buy my cars from a Ford dealer.

    No one is saying they don't have a right to express their views.


    If they CHOOSE to do it by disrespecting the flag, we have a right to tell them how we feel about that.


    ANd to do something about it.

    Kneeling is not disrespecting the flag.

    OK. Let me try to explain this one more time for possible penetration.

    Ford does not own the Lions. They have the naming rights to the field.

    Do you think Nissan owns the Tennessee Titans?

    Do you think EverBank owns the Jacksonville Jaguars?

    This conversation is bordering on becoming a sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" and you are playing both parts.
