I'm not sure if he's racist against Tagliabue, or racist against Upshaw... He kind of looks like he could be both.....

I dont think you can assume Gumbel to be racist I dont even know if he is white or black to be honest.

Well I don't want to get into a debate or discussion about the NFL's CBA. But, Upshaw has to be given some credited for the NFL's relative stability over the years. The NBA had a lockout that killed half a season, MLB had a strike that killed half a season and the World Series, the NHL had a lockout that killed an entire season. In all of those cases, the players came back in the same position they were before, if not worse.

I agree look at the state of the NFL compared to the rest of these leagues:

NHL-Nearly financially defunct and with strike solidified its status as least popular major pro sport in north america.

NBA-Monster guaranteed contracts creating primmadonnas. The game is boring. Rules are enforced and fouls are called depending on who you are.

MLB-Major blow from strike decreasing popularity. Also guaranteed contracts, attitudes, and the such.
