The NFL Scab Season – NFLPA Through the 80s


This episode we fire up the DeLorean to take a look back at one of the darkest decades in NFL History, the 1980's.  The fight between the players and the owners for the freedom to player for team of choice came to a head on multiple occasions.  Last week's episode covering the NFLPA through the 60's and 70's was only the tip of the spear for the players.  A strike in 1982 wiped out half of the season, and then the infamous "Scab Season" occurred in 1987.  This episode breaks it down.  So strap on your seat belt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
