Help The Players:


Since September 11, 2001, Americans have come together as never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome tremendous
adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil, wars overseas, corporate/government scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock price plunges,
droughts, fires, mad cow, SARS, high gasoline prices, and a myriad of economic and physical disasters both great and small. But now, we must come together
once again to overcome our greatest challenge yet.

Hundreds of Professional Football players in our very own nation are now locked out, living at well below their normal seven-figure salary level. And as if that
weren't bad enough they are being deprived of their life giving pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of this lockout situation.

But you can help!

For only $27,080 a month, about $902.75 a day (that's less than the cost of a large screen projection TV) you can help an NFL player remain economically
viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it's a start, and
every little bit will help!



Although $900 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to a football player it could mean the difference between spending the lockout golfing in Florida or on
a Mediterranean cruise. For you, nine hundred dollars is nothing more than a month's rent, a mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to
a football player, $900 will partially replace his daily salary.

Your commitment of less than $900 a day will enable a player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a
weekend in Rio.



HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING?

Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and
other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the player lounging
during the lockout on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on your refrigerator to
remind you of other peoples' suffering.



HOW WILL HE KNOW I'M HELPING?

Your NFL player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the player won't know your name, he will be
able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.

YES, I WANT TO HELP!

I am placing this right behind my favorite charity, "Give to BadBoy until it hurts". I take cash only as I know how some of you check writers are.

This stupid misconception that all NFL players are spoiled brats that are rolling in dough is really getting annoying.

There many of us who can't afford PSLs or even choose to go to single games. In fact I'd guess plenty fans are under the $100k annual salary. So yeah most Donny are rolling in dough even if I agrre that most are not spoiled brats.
