NFL Players Association Preparing Public for Lockout with

NFL Players AssociationThe National Football League’s Players Association (NFLPA) is gearing up for a potential lockout as their dispute with NFL owners continues, and it appears that they’re taking it to the public. The NFLPA owns and is using

The domain name was originally created in September of 2009 by someone who appears to be unrelated to the NFLPA, but the Players Association appears to have taken possession of the domain name in or around  March of 2010. Although it’s privately registered right now, it was recently registered to Richard Persons, the player union’s director of information services.

As a football fan, it’s interesting to see the NFLPA take this battle to the public in this manner. As much as I am a fan (big PATS fan), it’s difficult to take sides in a contract dispute with the mostly wealthy players and the even more wealthy owners.

I can commiserate with the players though. They may make a lot of money, but most only have a few years to play professional football, are battered on the field, and most get huge amounts of money right out of college, and I can only imagine how quickly my money would be spent if I was in that spot.

It is interesting to see the NFLPA use the NFL trademark in a domain name like this.

** Update**

Andrew previously reported that the former owner sold the domain name to the NFLPA for $25,000.

  1. Crazy that the NFLPA spent $25k on it. I wonder if hey had to put it to a vote, sonce most of their money comes from player’s dues.

    Anyway, if you need help coping with a work stoppage, let me know. I’m a big hockey fan and we lost an entire season about 5 years back.

    But on the bright side, it did spark a baby boom in Canada the following year!!
