The only job Ferret has ever completed successfully was a hand job. The guy can't even scrub a toilet without screwing it up. That's why he's on public assistance and spams Topix all day.

Yeah, but would you sit down and watch a 3-hour football game on your 76" LCD HD TV that only had players making $6 an hour?

I know I wouldn't...

Besides, and I'm not disagreeing with what your saying, the average NFL carreer only lasts 3.3 years according to livestrong.com . Not all ex-football players become sports analysts and not everyone is as lucky as Brett Favre.

Few, if any, have the knowledge or intelligence to squirrel away some money till they retire.

It was only since free-agency that the average player could hope to make a career out of playing ball. Even for a time after that, pro athletes were having to have jobs in the off-season to get by.

A teapublican dream would be to field teams of Mexican illegals at current ticket prices. "If only..."

But, why are we the people paying these socialists to work only 6-9 months a year anyway?

I wouldn't sit down and watch a 3 hour football game under any circumstances.

Who's fault is it that these "sports greats" haven't the intelligence or knowledge to squirrel away money for retirement? Why do we, as a culture, reward stupidity?

I didn't think anyone faxed anything anymore. Did his agent not own a scanner and not have email?

so are you mad at the players for trying to get their share of the cash, the owners for trying to make as much money as they can or the public that spends the money to see the games

I'm mad at you for being unable to distinguish between a statement and a question. However, I'll get over it before I hit "post comment".

I wonder what some of the hardcore, underearning tea bagger security guards would say about that and their current $9/hr wage? Would they switch parties overnight? LOL
I'm sure they'd argue that it would raise prices and ruin the economy and yada yada even though prices rose while wages went down/stagnated, the past 30 years. They would then be told that the stagnating wages kept prices from rising even higher. Following that up would be GOP logic that LOWERING wages would slow the rising of prices, thus saving the country!

The NFL is a business - just because there are a few people that don't care for it, doesn't mean that our culture is flawed. Spectator sports, regardless of the venue, have been popular back to the time of the Romans. I enjoy spectator sports and routinely attend sporting events. Is it expensive? Heck yeah it's expensive - but I expect the best when I pay that much to be a spectator. But I wouldn't necessarily call it "rewarding stupidity."

Actually, faulting anyone (not just professional athletes) that makes their money differently, legally and more than yourself is slightly askew. It would be like me calling you stupid for hitting the lottery or working your entire life for one, successful goal.

Steve Young won a Superbowl Championship with the San Francisco 49ers - he is also licensed to practice law in California. He is one of many former NFL players that have very lucrative business ventures and businesses away from sports. Not all NFL players are ignoramus'.

Babe Ruth was the first player to make $100,000. In an interview he was asked how he could justify making more than the president- Herbert Hoover. He said: "I had a better year!"

For years though, these guys did suffer while the owners made millions. I cannot remember the players name but, I read years ago that a (now) Hall Of Fame player went in to ask for more money after an exceptional season. The owner couldn't care less what he had done that past season. He told the guy there was a kid in the minors who'd be happy to take the guy's position for LESS money. True but, this was with no guarantee of similar success. We're talking about $10,000 maybe. A lot of money in the 50's but, nothing that would break a millionaire owner. It was the the *thought* that counted. The owner would have no problem substituting a player who could hit .340, 45 homers and knock in 100 runs, with a cheaper, un-proven player. THAT was the mentality. That, had to change.

I get that but still....

Talent should be rewarded, I get that but....

Do you know how many ppl 8 mill would feed, how many homeless it would help?

I see this big money being passed around and thats what comes to my mind..
