I wish he was on strike now
Former NFL Players Association Executive Director Ed Garvey attempted to resurrect the spirit of Vince Lombardi to bash State Supreme Court Justice Annette Ziegler and Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce.
Only one question was asked before Coach Lombardi left the room in disgust. The question came from a goof, Dick Young, and it was, “Coach, are you afraid the referees will be ‘homers’ because you are playing the Giants in New York?” Lombardi snapped, “That is the dumbest question I have ever heard. This news conference is over!”
To Lombardi, the idea of a referee favoring the home team was sacrilege. Everyone in sports knows the referee, umpire, or field judge must be above all that. If the fans think the calls are wrong for an undisclosed reason, there will be no fans. Simple as that.

2) Lombardi traded a player when he brought an agent in to negotiate his contract.
3) Lombardi’s players would never have gone on strike.
Now let’s look at what Lombardi and Garvey have in common:
1) Garvey’s career highlights are mostly in black & white, too.
