    I am Gene Upshaw. And I see a group of my players here in defiance of revenue hogging! You have come to fight as free men. And free men you are! What will you do without 60%? Will you fight?"

    "The mighty owners against the players?" - Ty Law shouted. "No! We will give in - and live!"

    "Yes!" Upshaw shouted back. "Fight and you may die. Run and you will live... at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here as young men and tell our owners that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom!"

    Exactly. Upshaw is more like King Longshanks (or whatever his name was).

    Ya know, the whole thing that got me started on this was that the owners won't share any more with the players because the owners have taken all the risk.

    And I couldn't help but think...

    And the player who dodges 300 pounders, does he risk less?

    And then it hit me, I was quoting Braveheart, so I found his great speech and tried to make it funny. Glad you liked it.

    One of my favorite movies. I named my dog Angus after one of the actors.

    For many, many years, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" was my favorite movie... then I saw "Braveheart" and Butch and the Kid had to settle for number 2...

    What a great movie, especially for anybody like myself with a Scottish heritage (my Mom was a Lunan, a sept of the Clan MacKenzie)... the scene with the pipers paying illegal, midnight homage to Wallace's slain father always gives me goose bumps...

    I see why he is doing it but his demands are a little extensive. He wants a bigger percentage of a bigger number. The owners dont want to give up that much. I think upshaw is being too greedy. Some of the players that have been cut or will be cut have already got in his face and hopefully this will work out.

    I have a wav clip of that line that I use as one of my error messages...

    I like using lines from movies for stuff like that, when I have a communication error with my ISP, the ol' PC pops up with the warden from Cool Hand Luke saying "what we have heah... is failure... to COMMUNICATE"...

    Does anybody know how Upshaw was elected head of the NFLPA and how he's been able to stay on as head for 20 plus years? He's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
