My opinion is don't join the NFL Alumni

by Bernie Parrish

 

Guys: Many of you are asking about joining the NFL Alumni as the Commissioner is promoting you to join. My advice is don't join it would be worse than a mistake it would be shooting yourself in the foot. If you have written a check to NFL Alumni my advice is you stop payment on it at your bank.   Bruce Laird and I have been playing "good cop" "bad cop" with Goodell and his "people" for the past year and a half to two years. I got to be the "bad cop" and have the most fun. It was like "punking" the Wizard of OZ who finally came out from behind his curtains and PR sound effects to exposed his underhanded plan to name who the evil Commissioner wants to have represent retired players. He awkwardly admitted in his letter of gibberish that he would keep control of the representatives funding leash as he has in the past just in case they might try to do some thing he and his bosses didn't agree with, like sue NFL Ventures or NFL Films.    What good is any retired players representative organization that can't sue the NFLPA or the NFL.   Bruce and I have had well over 100 telephone calls and many emails carrying out our "good cop" "bad cop" strategy and Goodell and his henchmen fell for it like jerks blinded by arrogance. There I go as the "bad cop" again.   In the next day or two I will be sending you my analysis of why we must fight the $26.25 million 2 3/4 year "crafted" (by NFLPA lawyer Jeffery Kessler) settlement that our lawyer is trying to maneuver us into accepting saying it was negotiated with Latham & Watkins one of "D" Smiths old lawfirm's rather than Kessler...$416 a month for two years will make it more difficult for the 2062 class plaintiffs to put $1,000 each into a Litigation War Chest to finish the job of recovering all the money we have been cheated out of by the same bastards who are still in power in the NFLPA.   The new ERA of reconcilliation is our lawyer Ron Katz idea and he has Herb Adderley singing his songs.  Ron sure has changed his tune from the email to Herb and Walt Roberts and me when Katz wrote: 

 

On June 23, 2007 Ron Katz wrote the following email to Herb and Walt Roberts, and Bernie Parrish, “As a lawyer, I live for cases like this one: a just cause, good clients, & a hateful foe. It’s an honor to represent you gentelmen…Ron”

 

Now Katz song has changed 180 degrees those who defrauded us are no longer “hateful foes” but kumbayah locker room buddies.

 

Forgive us for demanding part of the money you cheated us out of but…

 

THE SETTLEMENT DEAL SMELLS LIKE LAWYERS SCREWING CLIENTS, I WILL EXPLAIN IT TO YOU OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. MY ADVICE IS DON'T TRUST ANYBODY IN THESE TWO DEALS.
