Thumbs down Fucken money hungry NFL

WTF, like they need to make even more money??? Glad the baseball one didn't work out for the players side. Fucken bunch of whiney crybabies! You wouldn't get the salary you are getting if the public didn't want to see your games and buy your shit. Loose the TV revenue, see how much you get paid then!

MINNEAPOLIS CBS Interactive has filed a federal lawsuit in Minneapolis to clarify who can use the statistics that underlie fantasy football leagues.

The lawsuit filed earlier this week claims the NFL Players Association has threatened to sue the company if it does not pay licensing fees for the statistics.

CBS seeks a ruling saying that the players cannot control use of the publicly available numbers and cannot demand that CBS pay for their use.

A call to the attorney for the players association was not immediately returned Friday.

In a case involving a Missouri-based company's fantasy baseball games, Major League Baseball players argued they should be paid for the commercial use of their names. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis ruled against them earlier this year.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time
