Isenberg Professor Dissects NFL Player-Management Negotiations
March 15, 2011
Glenn Wong, a professor of sports law in the Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management at Isenberg, analyzes current NFL player-manager issues in a two-minute video with the Sporting News. According to Wong, the abrupt breakdown of last week's negotiations between the NFL and the NFL Players Association stems from disputes over salaries, player safety issues, season and preseason length, and a proposed salary cap on rookies. Professor Wong, who has extensive hands-on experience with professional sports labor-management negotiations, arbitration, and contacts, sheds light on the current NFL negotiations.
