I don't mind a guy wanting more money...what I do mind is when a guy forced a trade to a specific team and signed a contract with that team only 1 year ago. STFU!!

TO used to be my favourite player. I loved him during the Sharpie/Dallas logo days. However, he has taken this too far. Lots of guys holdout, but not after just receiving a new 7 year deal.

I am not sure who said it but I think it was someone on here. They said there was no way that TO would hold out because the Iggles first 3 games are all primetime against teams TO has had problems with. The Ravens were one, as were the Raiders. The point with the Raiders was TO thinks he is better than Randy blah blah. I think whoever said this is correct. TO needs the spotlight.


Spotlight or money? I'm thinking for TO, it's going to be money.


for any football player its going to money

It's too bad I couldn't vote for the first AND last one. :-[

This guy signs a contract, and after a year he wants to go back on it to make more cash. I hate the argument that goes "People think and I know I am one of the top players in the league...so I should get payed like one." Dude, you make tons of cash already, and you know what the nail in your coffin is? YOU were the one who signed the contract in the first place. If you didn't like what you were getting paid (like you weren't one of the best receivers before last year? :-?), then you shouldn't have signed it.

I love making non-sensical analogies...this is like someone signing up for a cell-phone - they sign a 2 year contract to pay this much money for this cell-phone. After a year of heavy, heavy use they say, "Well, I am one of the biggest users of this service than anyone...I think I should be compensated for it." I very highly doubt they are going to cut you a break on your bill after one year. Once you're hooked on, you're up the creek until the time is up.

Now on the other hand, after your contract is up, they are going to do whatever it takes to get you back because you now have the bargaining power because of the heavy use and a threat to switch companies. This is what TO should have done, and it is less aggravating to a company owner to ask for money when it's time to ask for it.

yeah, I was pretty unclear on what agent I was referring to. I was referring to the agent that "forgot" to hand in free-agent documents on time, was in charge of the media circus that was T.O.'s trade drama last year, and let T.O. sign a back-loaded contract. Not the current agent, Rosenhaus, who many believe to be the anti-christ......

This is the comment I agree with. 100%. ;-D

For the record, I voted: "This is exactly what's wrong with the NFL these days".

T.O. should be traded to the Raiders where he can join Randy Moss and they can both wear do rags, flip off their QB, try to outdo each other's bling, and blame "the man".

My 2 cents, anyway.
