Um... What is he eating?
Supersizing it can get pretty pricey after a while...
Well, the Patriots knew supersizing was going to be eliminated, so they wanted to lower his salary since he wouldn't need the extra cash!
Seriously, saying "it's not about money" and wasting over half of your interview talking about money and how it's a slap in the face means it's definitely about the money. We all gotta eat? Does he realize what I could eat off the interest of even 1 million dollars? That's like roughly 12,500 Double Cheesburgers a year!
Man, how many freaking NFL players actually play for the betterment for an existing team (a Super Bowl winner at that) anymore and not totally to serve their own monetary interests. I'm sure if I were a pro athlete I might think about it too, but really - millions upon millions of bucks to play a sport? We've got people trying to save our sick and protect our streets and country out there making 20 - 100 thousand bucks a year, and these guys doing something for fun are making 20 - 100 million dollars in 6 or 7 years. Going out there and sacrificing your body to play football isn't worth anything close to that if you ask me - you signed up for the job.
Mooch, I totally agree - send him to a wasteland team so he can be the "franchise" player and still not do squat because an entire team wins a Super Bowl, not one player! If anyone understands that, it should be Ty Law.
