He did know his own contract. It said March 2nd. It was the player's union arbitrarily moving the FA declaration date back two weeks that muddied the waters.
Thanks KG, I had heard a while back that the player's union had moved the date. This is the crux of the whole controversy; The players union is headed by the dumbest pres of any union, Gene Upshaw. He is trying to undo his bafoonery because he didn't alert the players and agent properly, it appears.
The people that TO should be angry at are the very ones that are supposed to have his back-the union, notable Gene Upshaw.
Now of course he wants to make TO a F/A, and heck why not "we all knew he wanted to leave the 9ers". What an embarrassingly asinine statement for a man in his position to make. I'm beginning to think he might have been a football player once!
