Just a hunch, but Toldozer is here to stay. Yeah, we could save some $$, but I'd be weary of dismantling too much of this offense. We'll add Ginn, a rookie wr, and tackles. Tolbert is important in pass protection.
Our ace in the hole is JR. JR loves him some Cam. I think he'd intervene if it came to Cam bolting.
Agreed. When Cam was drafted I recall JR saying Cam would be the last QB drafted while he was still alive. Cam has done everything JR has expected. He's gonna get paid. JR owns the team, Gettleman works for him.
In my eyes the only damage done to the NFL brand was through Roger Goodell's emotional reactions to the Rice, McDonald, Peterson and Hardy cases.
Where there was evidence and judgement/admission of guilt there is a case for dismissal or punishment from the employer.
Where the law doesn't find someone guilty, what right does an employer have to punish or fine someone?
The Rice situation was handled poorly, but that doesn't make what Rice did any less damaging to the image of the NFL? Would you want the company you run be know for fostering a culture of domestic violence? Do you not think that would affect the bottom line if everyone in the country/world knew were 'OK' with your employees beating the sh*t out of women and children? Didn't think so.
An employee doesn't have to break a law in order to be punished by an employer. People get fired everyday for say, being late, but they don't go to jail for it.
It's a privilege to play in the NFL, not a right. The NFL has the right to protect it's image and brand so it can remain a successful and profitable business.
