Im noit dissing you, because i know where you are coming from, but most of the guys in the troops arent rejecting millions of dollars a year to fight in another country so i believe thats what makes tillman special. And the whole deal with TO is that its a business, TO raked in the $ and put his longjevity on the line for this team. The only reason he signed the initial contract was so he would have somewhere to play and could escape SF, and now that he has put it on the line (and in my mind made philly a SB calibur team) he deserves more $. The whole feeeding his family this is simply pompus, but like any other job, id say TO put in a lot of ovetime and deserves the benefits.
And see thats the thing, ur saying he should get more credit because he left millions of dollars right. Thats exactly a greedy persons thinking. Your awarding him because he left the money? See he's a good person and doesnt care about money, because nothing about money. Thing everyone else left behind their FAMILIES, way more important that money..And why arent we honoring them as much as tillman?? Just becaise its money he left behind.....he gets everyone elses attention.
