    Draftee Adresses?

    Does any one know the adresses for any of our draftee's? That way I can personally go up to each and every one of em and smack them up side the head for trying to think that they are gods and demanding all this money. They are rookies out of college coming into a game that is nothing like college. They should be lucky if they get $10. Mabye I'll start shoveling out the big bucks when you start becoming a key member of this team.

    There are professionals with very short career spans. They are in the top 1% in the world at what they do. Why shouldnt they be highly compensated and get what the market will pay. As fans, we are often guilty of forgetting that to an athlete, its a JOB, that just happens to be a game. Sure, we would all love to be talented enough to earn a living playing football, but to me, this is simply a free market issue.

    Don't judge them too harshly. They're just abiding by what has become the industry standard. If they start holding out, then we can get riled up. Maybe the veterans deserve the money more, but that's an issue for the players association to deal with, not the individual players.

    All of them are chained up in my basement. They will remain there until I convince them to lower their salary demands. If it doesn't work, they may likely never be heard from again.:bored:

    Re: Draftee Adresses?

    Your disdain for the market economy makes me wonder if you might have a socialist bent to you...

    Just as filet mignon costs more than canned tuna fish, certain individuals command higher salaries in our market economy than others. There's no reason to complain that young players take advantage of this fact. If a player seeks more than his market value (i.e. a 3rd round choice seeking a 1st round salary), that's one thing.

    But merely accepting another's willingness to pay handsomely for your services? That's the American way, Comrade!
