NFLPA: can players be considered employees?

The NFL is union after all. Since Wisconsin’s battle for better public sectors and the chance to save collective bargaining agreements, the NFL and NFLPA’s battle for some sense of collective bargaining agreement has been unnoticed and even delayed until now.

So many speculations as to who is responsible for the possible lockout and why is this is so have been grqzing the media for quite some time. Reports state that the NFLPA is trying to file an anti-trust lawsuit against the union so there will be no lockout and the players can still play.

However, reports from NFL news say some NFLPA employees will undergo an investigation due to possible intentions to collude with the NFL. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d818baffc/article/report-government-investigating-nflpa-employees-for-collusion
