Antonio Cromartie Speaks Up About the Stalled Labor Negotiations Between the NFL Owners and the Players' Union

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie expressed his harsh viewpoints when asked about the stalled labor negotiations between the players' union and the NFL. He stated the two sides "need to get their (expletive) together and get it done." The current collective bargaining agreement expires on March. He also was quoted saying both sides have people "acting like an (expletive)." He and his teammates were inquired as they were cleaning out their lockers a day after the Jets lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-19 in the AFC Championship Game on January 23, 2011. [1]

Antonio Cromartie shared his emotions without caring if anyone else gets angry after hearing his comments because people's livelihoods will affected by any work stoppage. He is scheduled to be a free agent later this year, and the Jets are willing to again make some bold changes to mold the team to win the Super Bowl. [1]

Antonio Cromartie states that the reporters don't get any information about the labor talks from the union or the owners. He wants their collective minds get together and just finish negotiating without lamenting about money. Well, that's the nice way of spinning his words.

Antonio is the same who hates Tom Brady and called him "an (expletive)" before a Divisional Game between the Jets and the New England Patriots. Tom responded by saying, "I've been called worse." Antonio refined his hatred when losing to the team while being a member of the San Diego Chargers in preceding seasons. I've heard the same thing about LaDanian Tomlinson wanting revenge against the Patriots. Does the animosity also means Antonio and Tom will never be teammates? Just wondering. In contrast, Antonio loves Ben Roethlisberger because he's a competitor. [2 - 3]

Antonio alleges Tom has a habit of pointing to the opposing team's bench after scoring a touchdown on them. [4]
