-- so let's talk with someone who lived through the NFL player lockout back in 1982.
He's Greg bubble of former New York jet he is also of color commentator for S and why.
You can also hear him on ESPN radio -- and 1050.
In the New York area aren't so.
You have an interesting take on this you're there for the the player strike in 82.
That is -- -- to we struck in in the middle of the season for about seven or eight games.
And work it absolutely did more there was no good I mean were prepared to strike.
And the union tried to play a different couple All Star Games no one watched.
Ted Turner try to get involved to help us but.
Other -- that it really wasn't -- we were not a strong union in 1982 so what about this time around is that this players' union stronger and would you advise them to strike while they they they they did and in 87 they didn't 87 are -- -- and you weren't I was out I was out but that's where you had scab games players.
That we're going in there and than they've crossed a picket line big -- guys cross the picket line and that's been the history of the players association.
Where the big name players have not stayed with the with the also -- the everybody that plays to three or four years what.
I guess you know that the person is gonna get -- here obviously of them is the fans if this strike or lockout a whatever happens.
The fans see it as a bunch of millionaire is taking on a bunch of billionaires and they knew that the team owners and they don't have a lot of sympathy maybe for either side.
Well I you know it's a funny thing because fans love the game and the game will not change it'll only be delayed so fans will.
But only miss a couple games if they miss any games to make -- like you don't see the whole season don't relatives I don't think the NFL or the players association want any of that to happen.
I do think someone wants to make a point and you can't make a point as far as I'm concerned a collective bargaining unless you make something happen or not happen.
That's up to the NFL -- up to the players association sir you said if you're the owners you would block come out archery -- -- and right -- Okay and why because the the transparency the NFL is limited.
-- -- four when it comes down to negotiating I mean you're you're negotiating with blinders on half the time if -- the players association.
And of course if you take a look at sequential gain theory.
Which is applied mathematics a great article in Forbes by the way about that in march 3.
Is that you look at it and it's all about what the other person does that make should you do what you do in the NFL's very very good that.
-- it's I'm baffled fed up and twisting story great article -- Bob thanks very much thank you.
