    I get the feeling the negotiations between the players and the AFL over the next collective bargaining agreement (CBA) are far more important than any of us truly understand right now. Signed Nike NBA Jerseys .My other sport, the NFL, is currently seeing some ugly contractual disputes between players and their teams. Right now, there are a handful of superstars in the NFL publicly moaning and groaning about their own contract situations.DeAndre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski and Michael Bennett are a quartet of Pro-Bowlers who are all eyeing a new contract as the pre-season begins. In Hopkins case, he sent tremors through the Houston Texans when he decided to skip day one of training camp only to show up on day two, saying I let them do the negotiating. Hopkins clearly expects a new deal imminently. (For those wondering, his decision to sit out day one of training camp cost him $US40,000).At the heart of the players displeasure with the current state of NFL contracts, which arent guaranteed, is the landscape taking shape in a rival code. NBA wages have soared ahead of the 2016-17 season with a new TV rights deal in effect - the salary cap will eclipse $US90 million for the first time.Aussie Matthew Dellavedova is just one player benefiting from this wage spike - rewarded for his hustle with a four-deal worth a guaranteed $AU51 million. Dellys dollars might have raised a few eyebrows, but no one in their right mind expected Memphis guard Mike Conley to receive the richest deal in the history of the NBA.However, the NBA business is soaring and I believe the players deserve to reap the rewards for their hard work.Having just signed a record $2.5 billion broadcast deal, the AFL finds itself in a similar position and its the players view that we should share in the money that weve helped generate.I say the two most important shareholders in our game are the players and the fans - particularly the paid-up members. Those two groups are essential to the future prosperity of the game. Without the players, we have no game and without the fans, no one cares.We dont expect to be paid like Delly, but we want a deal with the AFL that recognises the significant contribution we make to what is an incredible product. With the average wage of an AFL footballer approximately $280,000, its easy to label our demands as greedy, but anyone suggesting so should look a little deeper.When AFL Players Association boss Paul Marsh and his team came to visit the Adelaide Crows, one statistic they shared demonstrated why the current payment model is redundant.Under the current CBA, the AFL forecasts its revenue and the players are paid accordingly. Sure, this gives the league and the clubs budget certainty, but its also ripping the players off. Heres why:Over the past decade the difference between the AFLs forecast and actual revenue is a whopping $246 million. Yes, thats almost a quarter of a billion dollars of revenue that the players have missed out on sharing in. Throw in revenue from the 18 clubs and that figure could easily be double.Its written into the AFL rules that players will receive a proportion of industry revenue, but theres clearly an issue when theres a significant difference between what the AFL is conservatively predicting and the actual figures.Under the current model theres no way for the AFLPA, on behalf of the players, to get that money back - money we helped generate. This is something our proposed percentage share model will rectify.A percentage sharing model is the only realistic and fair outcome I can see. When the game improves, the players will benefit. When the game declines, the players take a hit too. Its common sense!A pay rise for the players doesnt mean less for grassroots footy. We all accept and understand that certain things must be done to ensure the future of our sport. Kids deserve the opportunity to pursue their chosen passion, be it footy or otherwise. The AFL has a sensational, realistic, affordable pathway for boys and girls to become the next Patrick Dangerfield or the next Daisy Pearce.But if we want to keep attracting the very best athletes to football to ensure it remains the premier sport in this country, then the players and the AFL need to work together in partnership.Greater media access to players is one way we can contribute to the growth of the game and ensure the next broadcast deal is as big as the previous. A couple of months ago, I wrote that there was currently a huge gap between the media and fans access to players. The new CBA should go some way to rectifying that situation with more and more access for supporters.We, the players, understand the greater good of the game and NFL-style holdouts arent on the horizon but we do deserve fair recognition for the role weve played in making our game great.In the quest for fairness in what is ultimately a crucial outcome for all, I approached the AFL for comment on writing this article. In response they chose to take their consistent approach of not providing ongoing and open detailed commentary, other than to say they want the players to be fairly rewarded, financially viable clubs and the next generation of stars to be nurtured.As DeAndre Hopkins said: I let them do the negotiating. Hopefully a deal is close. Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. .

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians still supports his kicker, Chandler Catanzaro, despite him missing two potential game-winning field goals this season, including one Sunday night in overtime against the Seattle Seahawks.Yes, Arians responded when asked if Catanzaro still has his full support.Arians didnt hesitate even though Catanzaro missed a 24-yard field goal off the left upright with 3:26 left in overtime Sunday night that wouldve given the Cardinals their first win over the Seahawks at home under Arians. Seattles Steven Hauschka missed a 27-yard attempt with seven seconds left in OT, resulting in a 6-6 tie.Arizonas field goals and punting games struggled overall Sunday night. Seattle blocked a field goal and a punt before Catanzaros miss.

His 72.7 field goal percentage in 2016 is tied for 29th in the NFL.Arians called the Cardinals special-teams play the past couple of weeks before Sunday night fantastic. He said injuries affected other parts of special teams on Sunday.And even though Arians has publicly supported Catanzaro, hes still critical of his kickers mistakes.The field goal issue -- you just cant miss that kick, Arians said. Cheap Nike Chiefs Jerseys Chargers Jerseys China Wholesale Raiders Jerseys ChinaCowboys Jerseys China Cheap Giants Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Eagles Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Redskins Jerseys Lions Jerseys China Green Bay Packers Jerseys For SaleWholesale Vikings Jerseys China Panthers Jerseys China Saints Jerseys China Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Nike Rams Jerseys 49ers Jerseys China Wholesale Seahawks Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bears Jerseys Bills Jerseys China Cheap Nike Ravens Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Hoodies ' ' '
