Serious question, if they unionize will it bring other union related things as well? Like the union barganing for more breaks, less practice, representing a player in disputes like getting kicked off a team, seeing less play time etc...?

No I do not. In case you haven't noticed the south is pretty anti union, especially when you get to the people who make up the big donors.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Anybody Else Feel Football Tickets Are Overpriced? - NathanL on 1/5/14 at 11:01 am|
For the upcoming home schedule I think they are. The problem is because of the way tickets are handled it pays to hold them for 10+ years even if you never go to a game waiting for good schedules and when the team is on an upswing instead of dumping them.
Our family held them all during the 90's ...

There's a reason we finally went to the playoffs and it's not to get (2) SEC teams into the playoffs. Think it's a coincidence we finally get it after (2) teams from the SEC made it into the title game?
Just more rigging of the system to make some of the other conferences feel good.

It really doesn't matter. There are really top level conferences now and non top level. The matchups between those are such a joke nowdays.
The downside to the SEC really upping their game since the '92 expansion has been how much of a letdown many of the bowls are after playing teams that wind u...

No more teams please, in fact we could dump a few. We've already proven that if you win the SEC you play for the title (and most likely win it) so why dilute the chances?
Of course now we're going to the playoffs, but I don't believe they are going to allow more than 1 SEC team on a regular basis...
