    This is what I've been sayin for a long time now. Personally, it makes me sick when people are just greedy. They all make too much money as it is. There is NObody worth millions each year--I don't care WHO you are, or WHAT you do, so I have no good feelings for anyone who chooses the dollar over everything else.

    We can say that about past players and the past system--I'm just hopin that it will still work the same way now

    It's an interesting to think about, how many players would have a lifelong dream to play professional sports if the paychecks were nothing more than maybe a few hundred thousand a year or so ?
