When these guys are not on the court they are officially OFF-DUTY...---HeruStar

Typically, such contracts extend to off-court issues.

This demand by the players will ultimately get back to the societal demand that 'No one can tell me what to do; even if I work for you.'

Make no mistake, basketball players are employees. If nothing else is convincing, why do they think they need, and have, unions.

They are employees albeit with a contract.

AND...they are NOT management.

Someone tells them what to do, when to do it, and how to do. They are even told how often to do it.

they are told when to come to work, and when to stay home, and when to walk and when to run.

And...when to jump and how high.

They are employees.

Iverson is being quote as saying the ruling is 'wrong, and fake'. I forget the third thing.

What he did not say is the ruling is racist.

Right on Allen.
