Washington Redskins: Players Show Solidarity During Labor Negotiations

Pictured: Contempt

Just after the National Anthem concluded before kickoff last night, players from the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints held their hands in the with just their index fingers pointing to the sky.

Al Michaels explained that they players were showing solidarity in the midst of the labor negotiations.

That is all fine and good for non-divisional opponents; however, I really don't want to see it Sunday Night.

I totally get the reasoning for it—they're a union, they're all one—I get that.

But the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys are heated rivals, I don't want them showing any solidarity towards one another.  I want contempt.

It won't break my heart if they do it Sunday night, but I hold out hope that the rivalry holds more water than these labor negotiations, but it probably doesn't.
