<quoted text>First of all, playing a sport wasn't supposed to set you up for life by signing a contract. Playing a sport does not equal working for a living. It's a game. When one's (short) career is over (wah) your supposed to get get a job with what you learned in school to make a living. I guess your one of these morons who justify an athletes salary while you complain some union guy makes to much. No one should be getting paid what these guys make in sports. No one should make more than the top job in our country (president). Open your eyes! Our country is falling apart at the seams. Give me a break! What a fool you are.
First I can tell that you have an extreme disbelief in yourself. Using words like moron, idiots and (oh)(oh) what were those other educated words you used. Please respond without calling people names. It surely shows your educational level. I as a STate Assembly candidate have publically defended workers and denounced CEO's and top company executives for thier wealthy pay scales. If the business allows the big bucks for the owners and executives, the players, the ones YOU come to see play should get a fair share of those revenues. It is the media that began to dictate the salaries by offering large amounts of revenues from network rights. So your telling me that the athlete again who YOU come to see play should not get a fair share of the millions. So let the few become rich and the few, again the top executives get ot all right? Make a stand if you are sooo against this and don't go and pay for a ticket, don't watch, turn the channel to CNN, run for a political office like I have, find God, but stop the name calling it serve little purpose.

A kid playing a sport? Again if it was so easy why aren't more of us doing it? An athlete competing in a sport is probably the most difficult as far as physical demands and mental demands. Don't forget its not just the hockey player that benefits from the so called business. The owner makes millions, the media makes millions in advertising dollars, the costs paid by the networks to carry the games brings in millions, all the souvenors sold and extras go to the owner, and the player gets a simple salary? Thats where the issue lays. Just like GM where the CEO's get millions and the workers, the companies backbone get only thousands. The nurse who gets a medium salary and the insurance company CEO's get millions. There is injustice and its at the GREEDY Executive level. This is not only about Campbell, Its about all other players. I am sure your current emloyer is thinking of getting rid of you because you perform well at your job right?
Thank-you! If you don't enjoy watching and paying to do it, then don't But these folks gushing about the unfairness of it all nauseate me. The Sabres management is making money hand over foot, it is not unrealistic to expect a proper salary if you are one of the players bringin the people in. Good management will do what is necessary to build a winning team. We clearly do not have than management, but fortunately have one helluva coach. Unfortunately, I don't think he will put up with trying to win on the cheap much longer.
