Leveling the battlefield to aid terrorists enables evil to fight on

Both sides in the NFL's labor talks are trying to spread the word by putting their positions in writing, and everyone's getting in on the act _ from Hall of Fame players Jack Youngblood and Bruce Smith, to Commissioner Roger Goodell, to mayors of league cities.
Jones was held in such high esteem that when he made the league's 75th anniversary all-time squad, it prompted former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood to say: "Deacon Jones has been the most inspirational person in my football career."
"As former players, it is crystal clear that the vast popularity and financial success of football means that a lock out cannot be in the interest of anybody involved, particularly the fans who support the game," Youngblood and Smith wrote. "We understand the need for both sides to create pressure, but also know that at times it is important to decrease tenor and tone in order for the right deal to be made in a non-emotional atmosphere."
