The NFL players who support a measure that would allow players to wear synthetic leather seat covers without putting them in the body of a padded jersey are not going to be happy with the proposed rule.
The players are calling for the rule to be rescinded, according to The Associated Press.
NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith told reporters on Tuesday that the proposal would be an unconstitutional violation of players’ rights.
“I think it’s a blatant violation of the First Amendment rights of players, and the players have been very vocal in their opposition to this,” Smith said.
“And it’s also a violation of what I think is the fundamental idea of a pro-football league, which is that the game is about winning, and it’s about winning on the field and the game’s not about what people think.”
So I think the players are just going to have to sit back and let this go on.
But they’re going to go home.
It really is.
“Players are in favor of the rule.”
If you want to be in the game, you have to be a good, hardworking, professional football player, and if you’re not, you can be kicked out of the game,” Smith added.”
You’re not going play if you don’t want to.
So I think that’s a fair rule, and I think it was a very good idea.
But I think there should be a rule that says we don’t wear synthetic seat covers.””
The players’ stance has drawn criticism from players, coaches and other officials. “
We’re going take a lot of money, we’re going put a lot more resources in our team and our organization, and we’re also going to take a big step forward in our image, in our community and our community.”
The players’ stance has drawn criticism from players, coaches and other officials.
The NFL Players Union, which represents about 1.5 million players, said it was “disappointed” by the proposal, saying it would “undermine the integrity and credibility of the league.”
“We believe in player safety, and this proposal is a direct attack on player safety,” the union said in a statement.
The NFLPA has said that players would have the right to wear the covers and that they would not be required to do so.
Smith said on Tuesday the players would be in favor if the rule were rescinded and that the NFL could implement a similar rule for the future.
“There’s no question in my mind that the players and the NFLPA would be a strong supporter of this, and they’ll be very supportive of this if this were to be put back on the table,” Smith told the AP.
“But they’re not the ones that are going to decide that, and there’s a lot that the player is going get out of this.”
