San Diego Chargers linebacker Kevin Burnett joined XX Sports Radio in San Diego with Scott and BR and called out the NFL commissioner for his email that he sent to season ticket holders.

He took exception with Roger Goodell's claim that the league encouraged players to continue negotiating.

"Goodell's full of it," Burnett said. "He's a liar. You're a blatant liar. 'It's our league, it's we, we love the players, we want the league,' but what have you done for the players?"

The NFL commissioner also wrote a letter to fans after labor talks broke down, which said that the owners' proposal "was a deal where everyone would prosper."

Burnett, 28, told Scott and BR that Goodell has done nothing to improve the game.

'What have you done, in all honesty, to improve the game, besides fine guys, besides take money away from guys, besides change a game that you've never played?" Burnett said. "He's done nothing to improve the game."
