Green told the Boston Herald that whether it's fair or not, the American public is going to view this as a dispute between greedy billionaires and greedy millionaires, and that both sides are overlooking the possibility that they are turning off the league to paying customers.
"And you know what?" said Green. "We're forgetting about the fans. Everybody wants to watch football in 2011. Green said what's needed is both side coming together, and that the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell needs to give the players concrete information they can work with.

"I'm still thinking about hanging it up," said Green, "I'm staying in shape, but right now I've been very busy. I bought into this construction company about a year ago in Baton Rouge, and it's may be the best decision for me right now is to go doe construction. It's really valuable, it's a great company. But then again, playing a few more years would be great."
