so much this it's almost laughable. The cynic in me believes the spin "we love our players" campaign goes back to the sudden helmet to helmet issue last season. The NFL machine looked at the possibility of labor strife and decided they needed to win the hearts and minds of the fans and media. It's all bullshit.
