What is wrong with these guys?

21 posts in this topic

Let his butt sit. What does he think his worth will be next year? You know it will go down, or at least it should. So instead of 20 mil ne needs 23 mil? Do they even realize how much money that is? Idiots!!1

This is exactly why some say he slipped to where he actually got drafted. In his interviews with potential teams, he came across as being very "full of himself". I say let him sit as well...that 20 million or whatever his $$$ would be this year will not be on the table next year. I bet he'll get along with Singletary just great when and if he does show up.

It would be really hard to cheer for a kid like this now even if he did come to his senses.

A year out of the game will cost this kid a ton of money and he doesn't seem to realize it. He's getting some BAD advice somewhere.

If he sits out and reenters the draft every team will know what a headcase he is and his stock will drop. Even if everyone still rates his talent really highly many teams will pass on him because of his attitude. He'd be lucky to get redrafted anywhere in the first round.

And on top of that he'll be another year older and have 1 less year where he'll be physically able to collect an NFL paycheck.

He's likely digging the grave for his career if he doesn't wise up.

there should be a salary cap for all rookies and they should be forced to play for the team that drafts them, period. If the refuse, ban them from the NFL and tell them to take their Azzes to the CFL or the Arena league.

He'll sign it's just an attempt to get a few more bucks.

Hopefully this makes the NFL players and the Lawyers that represent them open their eyes and they finally realize in the next collective bargaining agreement that it needs to be tweaked and a salary cap for Rookies needs to be put in place..

Obviously the veteran players who have earned their contracts and money are being screwed by all the CASH the untested rookies are hording.

I could see a couple teams going after him if he re-enters the draft.

I totally agree with the salary cap for rookies, make it #1 gets this, #2 that, and so on

the rookie signing structure is ridiculous. NOWHERE, NOWHERE ELSE does an unproven person get paid more than the best player/worker at the company or team.

To see rookies make more money than the best player in the NFL is just ludicrous.

And Crabtree is an [PoorWordUsage]. Get your contract signed, you're talking about an extra million or two. Its already a TON of money, and if you get to camp, make a great impression, and get off to a good career, the dollars will flow that much easier when it comes time to re-negotiate

Look what a year out of football did for Mike Williams

it would be really sweet if he was boycotted and no one ever drafted him again...then he has to go out and get a 9 to 5 and struggle like the rest of us to buy the nice things we want....hey lets cry about 23.7 million over 20.5 million...moron.

If he sat out the year which isn't going to happen he'd be drafted at least as high next year.

The NFL teams don't make personal decisions especially on good young players because of some media driven non-sense started by an agent trying to get his client some more moola!

ok let me get this straight, oakland for the first time ever did a smart thing by passing on him and his giant attitude, kinda funny, people thought they were crazy for passing on him but they probably will come out ahead now.

I think there should be a cap on guaranteed money for rookies, then the rest should be incentive based. If he's such an all star go out there and prove it then we'll give you the 23.7 million. The player's union would never let this slide, but it makes sense to me. JMHO.

They should cap them. Or the NFLPA should get together and get their carp straight. It's ridiculous what these rooks can demand. I hope he spirals down into a nobody, nothing, or better yet, ends up in the CFL!!!!

    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
