Chiefs' Clark Hunt, Matt Cassel Agree: NFL Lockout Is All Business

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel talked with Kevin Kietzmann on 810 WHB's Between The Lines on Thursday evening and echoed something Clark Hunt said the other day regarding the labor dispute: It's all business and not personal.

Hunt said on 810 WHB a few weeks ago: "We're in a business dispute right now with the players. That's all it is. It's nothing personal. When it's over, I know we'll go back to the great relationship that we had before it started."

And Cassel said on 810 WHB on Thursday: "I can't speak for the rest for the players and I know that I can only speak for myself. I think it's purely a business decision, I really do."

With the incredible number of people this lockout affects, I think it's a little more than just a business decision but I like the attitude each of these guys have by not making it personal.

Cassel did seem to recognize that perspective matters in all of this. The owners, from their perspective, feel they're right and the players, from their perspective, feel they're right. Kietzmann asked Cassel how he would feel if he were on the other side of things and owned an NFL team. Cassel (smartly) side-stepped the question and said he'll just have to wait until he owns a team.

Cassel expanded a little bit on his lockout thoughts saying: "I think that we as players feel this should be a partnership and in a partnership it should be fair for both sides and people should be open, and truthful and everything going forward on both sides."
