first off, no shit. Secondly, these guys are the PRODUCT for a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR business that is so profitable the owners won't even open up their books because they don't want the NFLPA to see just how much money they are making...the product deserves to be paid what they are worth...and guys like Russell Wilson are worth a SHIT TON of money.
The best of the best of the best have 10 years to make as much money as they can possibly make to last them a lifetime...we have 40 years to make enough money to live a comfortable retirement.
I absolutely think anyone that agrees with the idea that these guys shouldn't be allowed to renegotiate their contracts whenever they want are flat out ignorant human beings.
If anyone honestly agrees with that then every rookie contract should be fully guaranteed...from pick #1 to Mr. Irrelevant.
this has to be Hootie ... right?
