Angry NFL Players Venting Over Owners' CBA Vote

Updated 10:46 pm ET with more tweets.

Yes, NFL owners voted Thursday night on a plan that would end the lockout if the players agreed. But so far it looks like players don't agree, not that they even got to see the plan before the world began demanding them to accept it. Except, apparently, Ravens rep Domonique Foxworth, who may be leading fellow Baltimore players to the Dark Side. 

Chris Mortensen collected strong words from a few players, as did several other media members as players took to Twitter to express their views first-hand. Some have been steamed and others have been flippant, but it's clear we're in for more NFL lockout talk. Wheee!
