I'd like to thank all who've volunteered to be team leaders. This is a vital role in our quest and I ask our group to support them and consider taking an active role in our efforts to reverse the damage the CBA has threatened against you and your families Together we are strong.
The work of our team leaders will enable me to continue my work of contributing information and evidence to support our fight. I've recently obtained some documents that I hope will be useful in reinforcing our case, but combing through them for the nuggets that will build and solidify it is time-consuming. I also need to resume writing and reporting on the website and producing our other newsletters. By the way, you've all been subscribed to our regular Retired NFL newsletter in addition to this one for our CBA action task force. Allowing me to focus exclusively on these tasks will enable me to complete them much sooner than allowing myself to be spread too thin, and falling behind in essential work. I ask for your patience and understanding as I temporarily shift to a somewhat less interactive role in order to concentrate on these tasks and coordination with our benefactors.
At present, I don't have a specific time frame for our transition to Phase II, however, the levels of participation in the elements outlined in our first newsletter, and the speed at which we're able to complete these tasks will have an impact on how quickly we're able to move forward. As before, I remind you to avoid any social media discussion of our plans with the exception of the closed group that Roxanne and Antoinette are putting together. If our men are interested in something similar please let Scott know and we'll do our best to create a men's forum as well.
In closing, I'd like to remind everyone that we are taking very positive steps to reverse the damage imposed by the new CBA, and ask that you use the next couple of weeks to try to refresh your bodies and minds for the work ahead. We can only control what we can, so let's try to put away any negative thoughts and focus on teamwork and a winning mindset. Let's embrace the wisdom of Star Trek's Captain Jean Luc Picard, because. I truly believe that there is a way out of every box, and a solution to every puzzle and I strongly feel that is the path we're pursuing.
