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!!!!

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
