    NFL: Union gives Upshaw three more years

    Gene Upshaw was re-elected Wednesday in Wailea, Hawaii, for his ninth consecutive three-year term as executive director of the NFL Players Association.
    The 62-member board of player representatives voted unanimously to re-elect the former guard for the Raiders, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Upshaw, 61, was first elected to the position in 1982, the year he retired as an active player.
    I guess the players aren't all that upset over the CBA and the Franchise Tagging after all!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Looks like Bryant Gumbel is alone. Players are feeling pretty good about the approx. 3.5 billion in salaries allowed.
