Fujita Standing Up for His Beliefs

May 13th, 2011

Many players like Scott Fujita are veterans and leaders with various injuries to their bodies because of the physical nature of football. Still, players like Fujita remain steadfast in their commitment to securing better protection for their health and safety concerns above all else.

He is standing up, speaking out and urging others to do the same. Players like Fujita have legitimate concerns about their livelihoods; they are family men who can’t play football forever, not simply “products” that can be replaced.

Fujita took time to speak at his alma mater, the University of California at Berkeley, recently. He was part of a panel discussing sub-topics within the larger realm of the NFL’s lockout.

“If I have a chance to stand up for something I believe in, I’m going to do that, and I encourage other guys to do the same thing,” Fujita said.

    like any business, the owners have the rights to disclose documents or not. THey own the business and are in it to make money. If I owned my own business I would do the same. The union is the problem nothing is getting done. If guys want to work in the NFL, the trade off is millions of dollars vs maybe getting hurt and not feeling well in their later years. Boo hoo

    The way to end the Lockout today is to have some person who is truly being being unrepairable harmed to request it. The Players have said the lack of training camps is doing this, but the owners point to someone like Reggie Bush and say this is not so. And so the stay on the injunction which would end the lockout continues. But there is one perfect person who everybody agrees is being unrepairable harmed, and meets the criteria to end the Lockout today. That perfect person to end this lockout would be an undrafted free agent from this years draft class. There is no doubt this lockout is doing unrepairable harm to them. This is the only thing the Judges need to lift the stay on the injunction, and end the lockout. These prospective players can not even contact teams, to see if they have a chance to become a professional NFL football player.This person would not even have to be a good player, maybe they don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell, but they are being harmed because they will never know. Any players out there hear me, please.

    The time has come to end the owner/slave relationship. Live the American Dream. The NFLPA should start their own league and negotiate directly with the networks
