    I guess he must be like sprewell from the T-Wolves and can't feed his family on those millions of dollars.

    Well sure they make a lot. But they also spend a lot.

    I can't imagine Huge.. I was reading about Rose... he got his 2 spurs championship rings stolen and 200,000 dollars of Jewelry stolen last week... I mean this is MALIK ROSE not Jalen or even Pete.. but MALIK ROSE with that much money paid for jewelry..maybe I am envious but me paying 30+ bucks to sit upper deck (when he was at the spurs) and they have that much money to spend on Jewelry makes me sick...200,000.. I couldn't make that in 5 years :brickwall

    Envy and Jealousy is such a disease. Some of ya'll should go see the doctor about it.

    The fact that they spend their money foolishly speaks more about our society as a whole than just individuals. America is built on greed. Founded on it. We make as much as we can and we waste even more.

    These players make this amount of money because our society is totally *** backwards. And ya'll fuss about the players so much but it amazes me i NEVER see anyone holler about the OWNERS and their greed to cut salaries so they don't have to give up any more money than they have too.....and most of them are BILLIONAIRES.

    If ignorance is bliss some of ya'll are in paradise.

    though i'm no billionaire..... every year i have to make similar decisions. On the labour end of my business, i have some craftsman who make high wages & are no longer able to deal w/the physical requirements of the job. There are few choices 1.) they are promoted to supervisory positions (if they have that capacity) 2.) they are given less less money & shifted to another position 3.) they are let go

    It's not about greed all the time. Sometimes you have to do what's best for the ORGANIZATION. Yes, if the organization does well so do I..... is that wrong? BTW..... who is taking all the risk if the organization fails? Who's name is on loans & guarantees that were needed to get the organization off the ground?

    I love it. Owens needs to shut his mouth and play football. Im not in his shoes, but I still think he is being paid a fair sallary on a good football team.

    You got your wish. You got out of San Fran, you didnt go to Baltimore, and you teamed up with the guy you wanted the whole time. McNabb. On top of that you get a 7 year deal for 50 mill, and you signed it.

    Im sick of this guy. I hope he holds out and Philly never gives in.
