    He definitly didnt deserve to get boo'd.

    Yea, like this part:

    But Bell couldn't do that. Every hour -- or even every half-hour, as he recalled Saturday morning -- he'd call Jeff Griffin, his agent, "just trying to find out what's the problem and hold-up."

    Bell's representatives advised him to ignore news reports. But he couldn't avert his eyes from the doings at Dove Valley.

    "They told me to stay away from all that and just wait until everything's taken care of," Bell said. "Of course, I watched the news and read the newspaper."

    Because the running back drafted two spots lower than him got $200,000 more than the Broncos were offering him. I'm not saying it's right, just that he had 200,000 reasons to think really hard about his contract offer. Water under the bridge...

Of course, Bell, he gets to sit in the hospital counting his fresh 1.74 million samolis while he heals.

    See everyone, just that last sentence in this quote shows others are rankled about the hold-out of Tatum.

    I will cheer for Tatum, but the way he allowed his agent to work the Broncos does not give me a great feeling of respect for him

    If he would have got the contract done without worrying about the money then I would have much greater respect for him. As many have said he has not even proved himself in the NFL, so why is he holding out?

    No but you would if Griffin doesn't become the starter. I would bet you break down and cry like a baby.

I, for one, will cheer on Bell, Griffin, or whoever is totin' that football for touchdowns.
    I was there and I did not BOO. I did not like the Booing but I did understand why they did BOO, because of the hold-out that happened.

    I hope Bell can do well in Denver and this can be put behind him. I also will cheer for anyone the Broncos decide to play because I want the Broncos to win and have a good season.

    This thing with Bell did rankle me a little though, because it seemed for a little money he was throwing away his chances of starting for the Broncos when the door was wide open, and I believe at this time has been partially shut.
