Dinkins: Players Are Seen As Commodities Not People

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Former NFL player rep Darnell Dinkins joined Seibel, Starkey & Miller live in the studio to talk about the rhetoric over the new CBA negotiations.

Dinkins says one of the problems is that the players are seen as commodities, not people.

Dinkins also said, people are desensitized to what the players make and a possible solution would be for the owners to open the books and be fully transparent.

Dinkins predicts that a new deal will be finalized this summer when the owners start losing money from missed preseason games.

    Players have always been seen as commodities. As a Steeler fan, I was impressed during Chuck Noll’s days that the team did not trade for new blood, but made good draft choices and then worked with them to be valuable players.
