Allen Robinson does not have time for this nonsense.
Robinson, who is actually quite the vociferous tweeter, logged on a few weeks back and, gang, he hasn't logged off since. Since the very beginning, he has remained perfectly clear about where he lies re: the proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement that may, or may not, be close to ratification. It started back on Feb. 20:
Rip it up! https://t.co/4bp5Aml88a— Allen Robinson II (@AllenRobinson) February 20, 2020
Weird. It's almost like players aren't responding to the idea that owners could cap game checks at an arbitrary (and low) number without any sort of publicly-made reasoning behind it! Love to be paid less than usual for more work. LOVE IT.
He then RT'd Richard Sherman, who was RT'ing JJ Watt:
Leadership! I am with you! Please communicate with your team rep. https://t.co/JucZbwqoa2— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) February 21, 2020
Our large, athletic, labor-focused sons are all grown up! Allen wasn't done, though. A few days later, he hit 'em with some first-team All-Pro sarcasm:
Whatttttt people negotiate like this? Say it ain’t so lol.... if you didn’t know, now you know https://t.co/ys7ZVLUXy5— Allen Robinson II (@AllenRobinson) February 24, 2020
Trying to split players on issues while alienating the NFL's working class against the stars definitely doesn't sound like something a group of team owners would try to do, right? Surely, these billionaires understand how much money they already have and wouldn't jeopardize their work force's safety just for one more Sunday afternoon of beer sales? Oh, they would? Unabashedly? Ah. Well, while we're here, is there anything else on your mind, Allen?

Hell yes. Hell yes, Allen. The most damning tweet of all might have come a few days ago, though:
Saturday so I’m bangin with the McDonald’s breakfast... hot cakes or sausage McMuffin? 🤔— Allen Robinson II (@AllenRobinson) February 22, 2020
Hot cakes, Allen! Hot cakes!
