Lynch: FOX hoodwinked by NFL re:scabs

John Lynch says NFL “duped” FOX into going easy on replacements

Per Lynch, the NFL called FOX before the season started and said, ‘We’re close to a deal, so take it easy on these guys.”

With no deal done nearly three weeks later, Lynch has drawn a strong conclusion:  “They duped us.”

Lynch also complained about the folks who aren’t getting nearly enough blame for this situation — the people who own the teams.  “The other night I went to bed angry,” Lynch said. “It just speaks to the arrogance of the owners.”

It will be interesting to see if Lynch is punished or forced to issue some sort of apology for his frankness.
