The new NFL agreement:

NFL

Players approve labor deal in close vote

By a close vote, with some 500 union members not participating, players have approved a new labor agreement with the league. The deal features a 17-game regular season, higher salaries, increased roster sizes, and larger pensions for current and former players.

The collective bargaining agreement, which runs through the 2030 season, was accepted by the 32 owners last month. The Players Association's membership spent the past week voting on the 439-page document after its executive board narrowly rejected it by a 6-5 vote and player representatives voted 17-14 in favor, with one abstention.

There was some strong player opposition to the agreement. Many stars, including Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, J.J. Watt and Todd Gurley, spoke out against it. The total vote, among the nearly 2,500 union members who participated, was 1,019-959. Ratification required a simple majority, and there could be lasting resentment among union members, given how close the vote was

I was a lot older than I should have been before I realized the propensity for humans to do things against their own better interests (like not giving a fuck when you have your chance to GAF).

Ready
Shoot
Aim!

A lot of the players said they will never play the 17th game, unless it's the playoffs.
