John Mackey vs. NFL – NFLPA Through the 60s and 70s


Tweet    
This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to continue the fight for the players against NFL owners.  Last week was part 1 of a 4 part series covering the history of the NFLPA.  This week covers the 1960s and 1970s.  The announcement of the AFL took things in a different direction for both sides.  However, the John Mackey vs. NFL case was the most significant event towards advancing the right to free agency for the players.  John Mackey played a large role beyond his litigation.  This episode bridges the events between the creation of the NFLPA and the strikes of the 80s.  So strap on your seat belt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
