Phillips: NFL Hall of Fame boycott is highlighting issues players have long had with presenting a unified message

“We, the undersigned Pro Football Hall of Famers, were integral to the creation of the modern NFL, which in 2017 generated $14 billion in revenue. But when the league enshrined us as the greatest ever to play America’s most popular sport, they gave us a gold jacket, a bust and a ring — and that was it,” reads the letter that was sent to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and the president and executive director of the Hall of Fame, C. David Baker.
