    Please don't make statements sound like fact when you are just making an unsupported assumption. I know you want to homer out for your team but that is poor form.
    Here ya go.

    WKYC (Channel 3) quoted Quinn saying he didn't know that money was being charged. That may be true, but people paid, and he signed.

      Here's hoping that's true and he does care more about the fans than he does how he can siphon money out of their pockets.

        I'm pretty sure he cares about the organization and the fans, but an athlete has to trust his agent; if he goes against what his agent says, then he shouldn't complain about getting a bad contract. And there's nothing wrong with a pro athlete trying to get the best deal that he can; with the nature of the sport, with injuries and aging, you try to get the most money as early as you can, if you can.

        But his current hold-out is not only hurting his image, but his progress too. Bottomline, he should accept the contract based on his possition in the draft and report to camp already, or he could become a bust.
