Careful, Geno...the NFL donates only 5 percent, or $5 of a $100 pink item to the ACS.

I can do eighty-five consecutive pushups. That must be worth a few million at least.

I bet Christie could do at least 8 reps of 225lb---it's so far under his body weight.

<quoted text>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.
Ruth was not the first to earn a salary of at least 100,000 dollars although if one included personal appearances and endorsements and other income derived from a player's status as a ballplayer, Ruth did earn over $100,000 in at least one year. His highest salary for playing was $80,000. Hank Greenberg had the first $100,000 salary in baseball history in 1947 followed by Joe DiMaggio in 1949.

If he ends up making more, now that he is a Free Agent, than what he was going to make with the Broncos (restructured contract with a pay cut down to about $8mil) then did the agent do wrong?
We don't know all the details about the agreement and perhaps the salary reduction was countered by some back ended concession by the team that would have made up for the salary cut in 2013. Perhaps the player also did not want to leave Denver so there may have been more to it than salary alone. The Broncos are a strong playoff contender for 2013 and if he can't land a contract with a playoff bound team, that could cost him as well in additional compensation. Let's just wait and see how this plays out.
