  • Loyalty in the NFL

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-networ...lty-in-the-NFL

    What is your opinion on the subject...feel free to bring up whatever you want..

    Examples: Bronco 2008 Pro bowlers...

    Do you believe there is loyalty in the NFL and do you think players should decide whether or not to play for a team if the front office doesn't show them the same loyalty in return?

    What is your opinion about fans being loyal to teams? Do you know anything about that?

        Everyone should just take a lesson from Rod Smith in loyalty and situations like this wouldn't even happen. I really hope Rod can somehow get in the hall of fame someday.:go:

            It's a business. Teams do what's best for the team first and foremost
            That doesn't mean they're going to get rid of productive players, unless they're not in the best interest of the team, but if a player has been productive and the player is part of their plans to build a championship team, they will do whatever it takes to retain that player, i.e; franchise tag them...
            Of course there are other exceptions like not being able to keep a player because of salary cap issues and whatnot...

              Loyalty?

              Hell... Players should be loyal and HONOR contracts.

              If you sign a 4 year deal worth 8 million or something like that, you should HONOR it whether you think you deserve more or not.

              You might deserve more money if your production is greater than your contract says...But the day you left your 'john hancock' on the contract, that STATED that you would HONOR it.

                  The business part of it is what ruins football. "Fun" and "teamwork" are two words that aren't in more than a few players' dictionary.

                    It SHOULD be that simple, but within this society... it will never happen. Athletes are more money minded these days. The age of Bart Starr and company is totally different.

                          Teams dont always honor contracts...why should players always have to??

                            loyalty goes both ways:

                            3 weeks ago, marsh was loyal to the broncos. now, he wants out.

                            3 weeks ago, fans hail marsh as orton's best receiver evah! marsh will somehow awesomely catch orton's underthrown passes. now, fans cry marsh sucked all these time anyway, so let him go.

                            loyalty goes for nothing here. whatever happened behind the scenes, whether it was about money, mcdaniels, or whatever it is, marsh still took time to thank bowlen and the fans for his time here in denver. did the fans do such thing?!

                            and you want to talk about loyalty?!

                              So would you agree then teams shouldn't cut or trade players ever then since they too entered into the contract?
