Straight out of Adam Schefter‘s mouth:
This is quite the bold move the NFLPA* is making to try to force non-union members to unionize. Since the NFLPA* technically no longer represents the players since their decertification, the brings in the question of the validity of this request.
The NFL pays the expenses of the 15 or so prospects and their families they invite every year to provide them with a ‘once-in-a-lifetime experience‘, according the NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. For many selected players and families this is a huge achievement. Anyone can attest to this that remembers when Aaron Curry‘s name was called as the fourth overall pick of the 2009 draft.
What do you think? Does the NFLPA* have the right to ask the invitees to stay at home and pass up this opportunity? How would you feel if the Broncos selected a player who didn’t walk up on stage and ignored the press? Air it out in the comments.
