That being said, there's no way to build a team, especially a sports team, 1,000 miles apart so the clause is awesome because there are idiots out like this **** who'd make this kind of coin and opt-out of being with his team mates. So him thinking that the team would be better-served by working out on his own tends to make me wonder about his commitment to the teamPlenty will schluff it off, but A) some people showed up (maybe not because it'd cost them $2M otherwise), and B) he didn't think it'd help (enough) to be there. Is this clown some Zach and needs his Mommy more than the team? LOL!
I just disagree and think that if he's only worried about the $2M, he was expendable anyway.
Trust falls and bowling outings FTW!
It amazes me how badly some people want professional sports to resemble their own experiences with team sports at the youth and high school level. These are grown men with lives outside of football.
