sticking it to????
Who stuck who
They accomodate his desire to play for them. Yes, it was his desire to not go to Balt. and demand to go to Philly.
He freely signed a ginormous contract.
He chose to threaten not to honor it.
He chose to bash his qb at every opportunity.
He chose to make a big deal out of the team not honoring his individual achievement.
He chose to be a major pain in the ass at every turn
Why would you suggest any employer would/should accept that?
The nature of the business is that someone--probably less deserving--will be paid more next year. But these guys want the security of the long term contract, but they don't want to live by their word. They want it both ways.
Hey it's simple. You want to be paid the most--sign one year deals to the highest bidder each year.
These guys seem to think they are owed lifetime security because they can play sports. Nothing is guaranteed in life man. Why is it so horrible to think that when I 'retire' at 35, I may have to work again.
Fuck him and F pro sports in general.
Give me a good college game anyday.
