like the current one with owners versus players are regular in all the major sports and baseball even lost a whole season becuase of it recently.
it is hard to imagine how the Premier League could have the same thing happen. Yet the owners must yearn for it, the terms of the current agreement for the NFL is that the players get 60% of the income, for many Premier League clubs that is a dreamland, some of them like Manchester City pay well over 100% of revenues to their players. In the NFL they want to reduce that level below 60%.
So maybe it will be some time yet until we see Gordon Taylor railing like Red Robbo on behalf of the players. In many ways it is a shame though as the NFl is much more competitive than the Premier League due to having a more level playing field around incomes and player salaries.
