New NFLPA Spot Shows Players, Fans Pleading For '11 Season
The NFLPA has produced a 30- and 60-second commercial showing what an NFL lockout could look like. The ads will air later today on the union's website, as well as during the NFLPA college All-Star Game on CBS College Sports Feb. 5, the day before the Super Bowl. The spot opens with a lock on a gate, and the camera scans empty football stadiums and locker rooms. It features a number of NFL players saying "Let Us Play," with NFLPA President Kevin Mawae saying, "We want to play." The spot also features a number of fans, male and female, young and old, saying "Let them play."
The spot ends with the words "Do your part to Let Us Play. Sign the petition at nfllockout.com," accompanied by the NFLPA logo. The NFL CBA expires on March 4.
