First of all I think that it is ridiculous of McKenzie to demand more money when he knows that the Packers don't have cap room to give. They can't please him even if they wanted to. Not that I really feel bad since I am a die hard Minnesota Viking fan, so Packers troubles are Viking blessings! If Randy Moss (this is for M-Zimm) was doing this, this board would light up with negative comments, but the truth is, Moss wouldn't do this despite his reputation. He signed a contract a few years ago that now is no longer one of the top five in the league even though he is top five and you don't see him complaining. I am totally old school anyway and get continually frustrated that the NFL is going the way of major league baseball with such high roster turn over each year due to free agency. Oh those good old days when teams stayed pretty much the same from year to year!
Theres a pretty big difference between Mike McKenzie making 4 mil a year and Randy Moss making 12 (or whatever he makes) I don't think McKenzie should be complaining but you can't compare their situations. Also, nobody was denying Moss set the Pro Bowl record.
On a final note, welcome to the Cafe. I like the sig, even if it is Vikings.
