Mike Ditka Demands NFL and Players Association 'Do The Right Thing' As They Face Their Corporate Res
Source: CSRwire

(CSRwire) EDISON, N.J. - December 13, 2007 CRO Magazine published a cover story today, available at www.thecro.com, analyzing the ex-NFL players disability issue in the context of other major organizations and companies that have faced similar days of Corporate Responsibility reckoning.

In the cover story, Mike Ditka, the Hall of Famer and ESPN analyst, takes on the NFL; Players Association Executive Director Gene Upshaw; and union spokesman Lanny Davis, a former White House Special Counsel, demanding that the world's richest professional sports league and union "do the right thing" and give former players "a chance to get their disability respectfully without jumping through hoops."

"In the retired players' dispute, the NFL and NFLPA are experiencing their Corporate Responsibility Moment, which all companies eventually face. Editor Dennis Schaal's unique angle in the cover story is showing how everyone is handling their Moment. That's where the real business lessons lie," said CRO Magazine Publisher Jay Whitehead.

In the piece, written by CRO Editor-In-Chief Dennis Schaal for the magazine's Nov.-Dec. issue, Davis chastises Ditka and his Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund for attacking Upshaw and the union one-sidedly when the players association and league share responsibility for retirement and disability programs.
