Even if I agree they only care so they can say they tried and sweep it under the rug. I'm not saying the llayers are guilty, just that I expect the same result regardless.
I guess that's why this whole pretending to put up a fight thing is silly. The NFLPA never had the power to do anything anyway. It's all moot.

Yea, my opinion doesn't matter, though I share my opinion with NFLPA, whos opinion to a certain extent, does matter, which leads me to my next point.
The NFLPA certainly doesn't have all the power, but as the union representing the majority of the leagues employee they DO have some power, and that is the entire issue of this discussion, the NFLPA did not believe that there players should submit to an investigation based up what they feel to be unsubstantiated and unfounded claims, they were and still likely are concerned about the consequences from that precedent being set.
In principle I agree with the NFLPA, but I am happy the league threatened suspension being that that is what it took to get Clay and Pep to cooperate with the NFL's demands, which is in my opinion, in the team they play fors best interest.
I don't agree the NFL is doing this just to sweep it under the rug and say the tried, I think there would be easier courses of action had that been the case, this entire situation has been like pulling teeth.
