Yes. Manning goes from an $18m cap hit to about $9m.

P. Manning sure as hell better lead the Colts to a superbowl championship (s) in the next year or two with that kind of sick cash flow streaming into his bank account.
Pressure is on now.

the difference between football and baseball is that almighty salary cap. While there might only be a few players in the NFL with THAT big of contracts in the whole NFL, IE Vick, LT, Portis, Baseball has tons. The yankees pay all there players a manning like salary.

Which gives me an idea...wouldn't it be nice if ESPN came out with a downloadable bar to put on your PC that is the bottom line? There are plenty of other downloads that go on one or another of the sides of your screen but wouldn't it be nice to be able to watch ESPN and sit on your PC at the same time? It would be for lazy bums like me at least...


I'm pretty sure they do that?

Does it work well? I know they have something like ESPN Motion but that isn't what I want, I tried that. It is just video. I suppose I'll have to go find it myselff because youa ll are too lazy... :-[

Nope, not espn motion.

It's espn bottom line, the exact same thing you see on espn, constantly scrolling across the bottom of your pc, I used to have it.

Also, it's not really fair to say football is catching baseball.

Just based on inflation alone, the biggest contracts get progressively higher, not to mention the salary cap progressively getting higher with it.

I remember not all that long ago when Bobby Bonilla was the highest paid baseball player at 6 mil.

It just so happens that the latest huge contract was signed by a football player.

It just happens that baseball's biggest star is locked up in a 10 year deal (worth 2.5 times as much as peyton's deal no less), but you can bet the next time a stud baseball player in his prime ends his rookie contract (like Mark Prior), baseball will have another deal that is worth far more than this one.
