    Its not like he went from making 25k to 3 million per year - when you get into the figures these guys make its like trying to make the distinction between 25 below zero and 50 below zero - at that point all it is is MF'n COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only thing I can understand is the length of contract - thereby job and $$$ security but players who bytch n moan because someone else in their position is making 500k more than them even though they make 2.5 mill a year is total BS to me - and its one of the reasons this country has turned into what it is all about the bling - and thats not what it was meant to be

    Maybe its us old timers who will never be able to quite grasp the concept of sports being all about business and not about loyalty and winning -

          So, obviously you want to make more in your business, correct?

          They want to make more money in their biz, as well. Gross differential in wages, but still, they're in the biz they're in.

            My point is when is it ever going to be enough - why do you thnk the NFL has a CAP - at some point you have to say this is too much money - but ALL the teams have to do it -

            And I could make more money at my job but I choose this job for several reasons that have nothing to do with money - believe it or not a lot of people do that - you just dont hear about them cause its not news worthy or exciting or controversial -

            They make enough - period!!!!!!!!!!

              I see you live in Oklahoma too

              Actually there is opportunity here just like anywhere else. I am on the brink of one myself

                Lots of money. Lots of taxes. Pay out - what? - 50% in taxes unless you have a good agent who knows how to hide it.

                  I'm pretty sure that Bly grew up near Washington.

                  That was a big part of any hesitation that he might have had as well. But you can blame San Fran and Clements for the money deal. If you're Bly, you probably hold out a little to test the waters. 99% of anyone in the world would do the same. and if you say you're that 1% I don't beleive you and you'll never be able to prove it.

                    On the other hand - how about players who take pay cuts or reconstruct their contracts so they can stay with their team abd help their team be a better team - to win a SB - so IMO, there are players out there that dont do that

                    This whole money thing has just been what the last 15/20 years - and its only getting worse

                    Do I think they deserve a very high salary - yes

                    So I think its fair that they get paid a million times more (as do actors etc) than teacher, doctors, policemen - etc etc etc == HELL NO

                      So what, I wanted more money, and went and applied for a job somewhere else.

                      They offered me more money than I was making, so I gave my employer a chance to match. My boss gave me more money, and I was like ----- who?
