He's not wrong.

The players and the owners are fighting over money, do you really think it's in good taste to tweet a picture of stacks on stacks of cash like it's nothing to you? It put a bad taste in my mouth towards the players this morning, and I haven't picked sides in this brawl since September.

If Jeremy Jacobs, or Dolan, tweeted a picture of themselves swimming in a bathtub full of money, what do you think the Union's reaction on Twitter would have been?

I care because it goes to show you what they're truly fighting for; themselves. The players (some) don't play for the fans anymore, they (some) play for the money.
