Theres a reason there hasnt been a meaningful work stoppage in pro football for almost 27 years, and its not because this is a sport where the players have nothing to complain about. The very nature of the sport makes it difficult - some might say near impossible - to keep players united during a work stoppage because work stoppages are always about making sacrifices in the short term to benefit in the long. And for a great number of players in a sport with short careers and non-guaranteed contracts, there is no long term. But perhaps even more difficult to overcome is the fact that in football a small number of players on every team are paid far more than the rest, especially the large number of players on every team who will earn at or near the league minimum. And it is those star players, who already enjoy the biggest paydays and the most job security, wholl gain the most as the result of a successful work action. Look at any roster in either the CFL or NFL and youll probably be surprised to earn how many players are earning at or near the league minimum, which this NFL season will ranges between $420,000 and $645,00 for players from zero to three years of service in the league. In the CFL, that figure will go from $45,000 to $50,000 for this season based on what the parties have agreed to so far during current CBA negotiations. Since payrolls for CFL teams arent public, lets use an NFL team as an example to illustrate the payroll dynamics in pro football, which are similar in both leagues, albeit on a different scale. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers enters this season with an average salary of $22 million, nearly double that of anyone else on the team. Among Packers currently under contract, there are only four with an average salary of more than $7 million season, and another four at more than $4 million. There are eight players listed at between $2 million and $4 million, and 67 whose average salary is less than $1 million, 49 of whom are due to earn less than $600,000. The numbers in the CFL are obviously smaller but the manner in which they compare to one another is similar, with star quarterbacks earning roughly $500,000 per season while a large portion of each roster earns less than $60,000 per season. The truth is that whatever gains are made for the players in either league usually mean the rich will get richer. For example, the NFL will operate this season with a salary cap of $133 million dollars. But if that figure was suddenly increased to $200 million, the primary beneficiaries would be the Peyton Mannings, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Bradys and Richard Shermans of the world, while the leagues rank and file would essentially remain un affected. Same thing in the Canadian Football League - where if the CFLPA were to get its wish and have the salary cap jump immediately from $4.4 million to $5.8, the benefits would go to players such Ricky Ray, Darian Durant and the rest of the players whom fans pay to see. Of course theres another dynamic in the CFL game that doesnt exist south of the border. And thats that starting Canadian players - the ones mandated by the leagues quota system - also stand to benefit handsomely from any increase because of the laws of supply and demand. But the question becomes how do you convince the great number of players earning at or near the league minimum - young American players or backup Canadians - to commit to a work stoppage when theres little or no chance many of them will benefit from it? Standing up for a much higher minimum salary might help boost support among the rank and file, but that never seems to be the priority in either league. And therein lies the challenge of trying to keep a union full of professional football players all on the same page during a negotiating process. Consider that, despite having the leverage of being able to shut down the most profitable sport in North America, NFL players werent much interested in testing the resolve of their membership by missing paycheques when the league locked out its players during the off-season three years ago. They settled before that could happen. In Canada, the CFLPA has made a lot of noise about being disappointed in the leagues various offers this spring. But it hasnt said anything about having all of its membership on side, or being unbreakable, or being willing to miss game cheques in order to reach their goals in negotiation. The truth is that if the CFLPA were to strike a portion of the season, a great number of players will never get that money back - even if the owners were to capitulate completely. Many would simply be out of the league before they could benefit or would be left to watch the windfalls go to star players while they continue to earn similar amounts. All of these dynamics play to the owners advantage. And in the CFL, where were talking about players needing money to simply pay for the cost of living, the advantage is even greater. Will we see a CFL players strike later this month? Perhaps while its just training camp being missed, when no one has to make a true financial sacrifice to benefit the group for the long term. But in a sport where the rewards of such an action are likely to wind up in the hands of a select few, expecting anything more may be asking too much. Karl Mecklenburg Womens Jersey . Granada goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez saved Morenos first two headers from corner kicks taken by Sergio Garcia, but the defender beat him on his third try after Garcia found Moreno unmarked at the near post in the 78th minute. Steve Atwater Youth Jersey . Vonn had another scary moment at Saturdays World Cup downhill in Val dIsere, ending up clutching her knee in pain after losing her balance and missing a gate. But she gave a reassuring answer shortly afterward, saying no new damage had been done to the surgically repaired knee, and that her plans for the Sochi Olympics were still intact. http://www.broncosrookiestore.com/Broncos-Noah-Fant-Jersey/ . The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week. Dalton Risner Womens Jersey . The judge sternly instructed the prosecutor to restrain himself and he apologized -- then went right back to trying to pick holes in the testimony of the double-amputee runner. It was a harsh day of cross-examination for Pistorius, challenged relentlessly about his account of the moments just before he killed Reeva Steenkamp, as well as circumstances related to several firearms charges against him, including the firing of a gun in a crowded restaurant. Drew Lock Youth Jersey . And fellow Leaf, Jake Gardiner, hiking in Whistler.Colin Montgomerie said it was a privilege to have witnessed Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson battle it out for the honour of becoming The Open champion. Stenson produced a staggering display to record 10 birdies and two bogeys to beat the Open record of 19 under set by Tiger Woods in 2000 to win the 145th Open Championship.The shootout between the two was reminiscent of the Duel in the Sun just down the Ayrshire coastline at Turnberry in 1977, when Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus by one shot after a weekend of punches and counterpunches. Final leaderboard The 145th Open Forty-under-par between the two of them is just remarkable. It will go down as one of the great, great days, said Montgomerie, who has made 22 Open appearances.We talked about 1977, the Watson-Nicklaus Duel in the Sun and it lasted nearly 40 years. Weve witnessed possibly something better.Stenson lost more than $10million in the infamous Allen Stanford scandal of 2009, but victory in the FedEx Cup and then The Race to Dubai was a step on the Swedes journey to financial recovery. Henrik Stenson said he felt that it was his time to win his first Major and admitted it hasnt sunk in that he is The Open champion But Montgomerie said that winning The Open was all about the famous Claret Jug for Stenson, adding: He always had that ability and he proved that today ten-fold.This has been remarkable. We will look back on this in many years to come as witnessing something so, so special.I am sitting here over my home course privileged to have watched it. This has been remarkable. We will look back on this in many years to come as witnessing something so, so special. Colin Montgomerie Best of the Open Zone Dustin Johnson features in the best from The Open Zone at Royal Troon There are very few people that improve in their forties, Henrik improved over these four days dramatically and we said he had thhe ability.dddddddddddd.He wasnt called the Ice Man because he lost these major championships, today he went out and he won this.The bogey the first and then shoot 63 around here is tremendous. Stenson took the lead at The Open after a birdie at the world famous eighth hole at Royal Troon The 2010 Ryder Cup winning skipper said Stenson was very studious of the game when he first encountered him on the PGA Tour.He was someone who you always respected because of the length he hit the ball. That went miles down the last, 118 yards to that bunker and it just stopped because it was damp. You need a bit of fortune. If he hit the bunker, could have made bogey, Phil Mickelson birdies, its then a whole different ball game but were talking about a champion who has won by three. The Swede shot a final round 63 to win The Open, his first major championship, as he edged out Phil Mickelson in a thrilling final round You need a bit of fortune to win a major and thats why its so difficult because even these top 10 players in the world need a bit of luck to win majors, but hes a nice guy to be around.In the team environment hes just a good guy to be around. He is someone that you want on your side. Watch The Ryder Cup from Hazeltine live on Sky Sports - your proud new home of The Open Also See: How Stenson won the Open...
