DeAngelo Williams won't complain about his contract

99 posts in this topic

Not like we bring in free agents like that but with a owner like jerry who would want to play for him knowing you might be oust sooner than later.

I don't see any of the players simply walking because they haven't been extended yet. As long as they are offered good/ fair contracts, am sure they will stay.

Exactly. I understand what Richardson is doing but what will be the cost? These players aren't going to thank him for his stance since in the end it really is a prelude to battling with the players union anyway in an attempt to take away some of the money they currrently enjoy. When it is all said and done Richardson will be seen as a businessman who was self-serving and did what was best for himself despite any problems it caused for the team or the players.

Which is fine right?

Just as long as everyone remembers that each player sees themselves as a business as well and will do what it best for them regardless of how it effects the Panthers or the team. Any loyalty that players had for the Panthers or Richardson is being eroded away. Players will go elsewhere just because they feel that they were being disrespected by the organization.

the sad thing is that while jerry is trying to be the role-model and make his business more profitable in the long run, he may be biting himself in the ass. if he loses alot of talent after this season, and the team isnt as good, then he will be subjecting his business to lower profits if he doesnt sell as many tickets or merchandise.

there are two parts to running a successfull business. First, you have to save as much money as possible in order to be profitable, but at the same time, you also have to have a quality product so that you will have loyal customers. richardson seems to only be considering the first rule at the moment.

Yeah, cause richardson has failed to put a "quality product" on the field, right?

Right?

If it wasn't for this CBA nonsense he would have been paid.

As I have said before, JR is trying to lead the owners by not extending contracts and protect his business for possible lock-out.

We are possibly seeing the end of a lot of fan Favs in Charlotte. Davis/Kalil/Williams.

How would you feel if you had exceptional talent and your work refused to pay you because the owner wanted to make a point.

If he lets any of those three go so he can prove a point, I hope he is ready for the fan backlash.

The Hornets made a mistake by not signing popular players like Mourning. The word was Shinn was cheap and not serious about a championship. Players didn't want to play here and fans lost interest. It didn't help Shinn couldn't keep it in his pants.

Still if Richardson follows up getting rid of a ton of veterans with a losing effort and then fails to sign many of the young core of players, he may be starting down the same path.

put their respective freshman and sophomore seasons side by side, and it isn't even close.

That is unfair to compare them as freshman & sophomore, because we didn't have the same O-Line by the time we got Stewart. Not to mention Fox was using Foster more than Williams. It not until we got Stewart, that Williams was being used more than ever beside sharing with Stewart. Thus, your comparsion there is weak & mooted.

And hopefully Williams will get paid. But he better not demand more than he should. He should accept the deal that will paid him well like $20 millions or maybe more.

Man-crush on Williams + 1 (no homo)

Seriously, I've met this guy on a couple occasions and he's nothing but pure class. We're lucky to have a star on our team like this. As long as he stays healthy, I think we will extend him... he doesn't have the wear and tear of most RB's his age, he spent quite a few years at the beginning of his career riding the pine and he's spent these last few years in a 2-back system.

I can see how you might hope that is the case, but I can only say that based on what Williams said in that article he thinks he should already have been given a new contract, feels that the 30% rule is an excuse not a legitimate reason his contract hasn't been extended, and doesn't sound like he cares about where he plays so much as he wants to play football. I wouldn't be surprised if he went to the highest bidder regardless of where it was. Loyalty is rewarded when it is reciprocated. Nothing that Richardson has done has shown any loyalty to the players, so why would they do anything for the Panthers? After the CBA gets worked out I expect there to be lots of bruised feelings and egos about how the players were treated especially if they had to make big concessions. If Richardson is heavily involved in the negotitations it won't endear anyone to him on the player's side. I could see a scenario where a number of guys either are not extended or choose to go elsewhere for more money.

Steven Jackson got a 6 year- 49 million dollar deal in 2009 with 20 million guaranteed. Realistically it is 3 year deal worth 30 million. Williams will be looking at that as the standard and want as much. If Richardson doesn't pay him someone else surely will.

    • I finally was able to watch it last night.

      I thought it was a good episode.

      The trouble is that it has only been about the second or third good episode out of the second half 8 of this season.

      I like show Negan almost as much as the comic one, and I know that probably puts me in a minority, but I think JDM does a fantastic job.

      Also, show Eugene is easily one of my favorite characters at this point. Comic Eugene was/is kind of boring at times.

      This episode showed what I've been saying all along though, that Rick and Negan are rooted in the same character. Rick is more supported by the individuals in his group, while Negan is more the totalitarian. Rick is more moral-majority and Negan is more "I make the rules, and you better follow them." But at their base, they are exactly the same. They are just dudes trying to survive a zombie apocalypse the best way they know how, and they are trying to make the world work again.

      I can go ahead and spoil most of the finale, I think, if you want to be spoiled. It sounds pretty epic and intense.

    • I also haven't finished it yet and that's mainly because the guy playing Danny sucks. If they had gotten a better actor I think this show would have been so much better. As it stands now I have two episodes left to watch and no desire to do so, and I am one of those people who finishes everything once I start it.
