"These situations only make !ans look upon the the pro ath- ele as a money-hungry player who is unhappy in his rich surroundings," Curry wrote. "If he doesn't want to play, then let him go to work." Peter Finney, writing for The New Orleans States-Item, concurs. "The freedom issue is nolhing more than a money issue, and when you examine the NFL financial picture, it's impossible for me to stir up any sympathy for the players, not merely the superstar but the guy good enough to make the financial status, Chronicle columnist Glenn Dickey, who wrote: "My sympathies are obviously with the players, because they risk their careers every time they go on the field, whereas the owners risk little; it is virtually impossible lo lose money with an NFL franchise. 1 ' And Edwin Pope, sports editor of The Miami Herald, assailing the owners for their un- sequential." bending posilion 'ocked contract in the dead- ncgo'.iations, team.
