    The 1987 NFL strike: Picking at an old Scab

    It's the fall of 1987. NFL players are on strike and Houston Oilers coach Jerry Glanville is sitting in a room with officers from the Houston Police Department. They're about to watch a surveillance video of two alleged Oilers leaving the picket line to smash the windows out on a bus that brought Houston's replacement players to their first practice.
    "The police say to me, 'Coach, if you can identify these guys, we'll arrest them and they'll be in jail within two hours,' " Glanville said last month. "I said, 'OK, boys, let's do this.' So we look at the video and I'll be damned. It's my two starting safeties."

    Uh-oh.

    Scab football. Didn't watch a game........But I listened to everyone of them, floating in the Med on the USS CONCORD AFS-5.
