Pryor Suspension Upheld; Players Unhappy with Union?

Word came out today that the NFL upheld its 5 game suspension of former Buckeyes QB Terrelle Pryor. Drafted by the Raiders (which is punishment enough), Pryor was technically suspended by the NFL for manipulating the draft to avoid NCAA punishment. To players, though, it looks like Pryor was punished for his NCAA violation (trading memorabilia for cash and discounted tatoos). Some NFL players don't like the optics - a player being suspended by the NFL for stuff he did when he was not an employee of the NFL. For some players worse is that the NFLPA didn't fight this aggressively.

Something tells me this isn't done. Just ask Cedric Benson.
