NFLPA Wants Draft Boycott

NFLPA wants draft boycott. This is crap and I'll tell you why.

On the one hand the NFLPA wants the young players to give up the experience of getting drafted, walking up on the stage, shaking hands with the commissioner and getting interviewed live on ESPN or the NFL Network but on the other hand they are using a rookie wage scale as one of their bargaining chips. It will be the rookies who bear the brunt of whatever deal is eventually cut with the NFL. In essence by asking then to boycott the draft the NFLPA is trying to screw these rookies coming and going.

That's crap.

I haven't seen the above point made anywhere else so I figured I'd throw it out there.
