Per twitter, it seems the players have filed for decertification. What does this mean in lay terms? Really, it is posturing so that the players union as a group can not be locked out by the owners.
I have said many times, the fans are the only real losers in this battle. So now, I hope the owners call the bluff. Sit on it. The players will need money long before the owners do. You see, in most jobs the owner of the company calls the shots, not the employees. Sure, these players are who the fans pay to see, but it does not mean they are part of the ownership. The Bengals will be around long after every player on the roster is gone.
