Okay, so which team wants to be the ones to step up and break the cycle and watch their superstar go where the max money is.


I wish. Agents created a brilliant animal.

You know because no one who works a job ever wants a raise. I mean 99% of the players if it werent for these evil agents would say "nah, i have enough money"

Rodgers' contract will break Brees' contract, and then Cam's contract will break them all!

2000 people in the world are qualified to play NFL football which is by far the biggest moneymaker in sports in the US and the players get paid the least compared to any other sport baseball, soccer, basketball. So yeah i'm okay with it.

I am absolutely fine with the super contracts. The players provide a product which people pay billions for shouldn't they get paid? Or would you rather see the owners keep more of that money?

If you truly do not approve of these contracts you need to make sure you and everyone else you can convince stop buying nfl merchandise, do not buy games tickets, do not watch or pirate nfl games. All of those activities increase the NFL's value and raise those players salaries.

Capitalism is outrageous. 25-30 million people unemployed while something like 1% of the population has enough money to live several hundred lifetimes of luxury.

Everyone loves capitalism until it effects their sports team.
