You shouldn't cast stones at JR for "being cheap"

57 posts in this topic

It's really easy to throw stones and say who is being cheap and who isn't when you're not the one writing the seven and eight figure checks.

I bet 99% of you harping on JR for "being cheap" won't tip your waiter more than 15% even if the service is excellent, the food is great, and you just got your paycheck.

Maybe this isn't new thread worthy, but some of you guys are being ridiculous with this crap. Flame away.

I'm a pretty big tipper.

Saying JR is cheap is wrong

Saying he was cheap last year has some truth to it

The going rate for a HC will be between 6-8m. What will ESPN say then?

Who cares about writing 7 or 8 figure checks when you are pulling in 9 and 10 figure checks.

JR is writing less than a handful of 8 figure checks, maybe 2.

He is collecting many many 9 figure checks though so I don't feel too bad for him.

I don't think he's cheap but he earned that title last year. In the media, perception is reality so it could hurt us for the foreseeable future.

Carolina is the worse place for new coach to start out, and they won't land Andrew Luck.

I'd be cheap too. With the CBA and all right now, he looks like genius.
