He’s an employee, nothing more. If he wants to be an advocate and go about it the right way I would applaud him. Trying to hijack a platform that isn’t his is wrong.

So.. they are as much the platform as anything else in the league.
Risk? I’d suggest players are risking a lot more, every time they suit up than the owners ever will.
What risk did Dean Spanos take? Lol
