You sure get hung up on this a lot. It's insane how you are so obsessed, lol. It's not the amount that matters to these ego driven athletes. It's getting what they feel is compensation for services in comparison to others. This is one of the only times we can compare athletes to us. If you are the best employee, show up, do great and someone else is getting paid 40% more than you, -- of course you're going to be ticked. They get paid a lot more than you and they aren't as good or as reliable.

The amount they earn is ABSURD, but let's not get it twisted. Now the clowns who cry about "only" getting $30 million and ask "how am I gonna feed my kids" -- they are fucksticks. That's not the majority. And just like everything, EVERYTHING, in life, we have some dillholes.

But your last point SPOT FREAKING ON. Aaron Rodgers knows he's top 3 QB in the NFL and wants to be compensated accordingly AND wants the Packers to somehow still retain all these old veterans. Maybe he should have spoken up more and better during CBA talks that reward veterans so much more money. What that did was pushed a lot of veterans out because teams could bring in someone younger for a lot cheaper. NFLPA didn't think that through at all.

I’m not “obsessed”. Just pointing out how insane these athletes make that much money. Yes, it’s the free market. Most likely some day they will price themselves out of existence. They will kill the golden goose with their greed. Of course that’s just my opinion. And no matter what you say, I still will think it’s ridiculous.

I think you are “obsessed” with trying to make it seem as acceptable behavior to cry when someone else is making a million more then you are. When you are making more money in one year then most hard working people make in their lifetimes.
When a person dies, they take just as much money or “toys” with them that they brought into the world with them.
Like I said, Rodgers is complaining about how the Packers had to let some of his buddies go......at the same time he was eating up the majority of money they could have used to keep said guys.
He wants EVERYTHING. While not having to give up some of his vast wealth.
That hypocrisy bothers me.
If you want, you have to be willing to give too.

Well said Cheesey!
The GREED of the Rodgers type of players in professional sports is driving me away from professional sports.
Now that greed is taking a foothold in college sports.
Where will it end?
I’ve been a Green Bay Packers fan since I went to my first game in 1956.
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers organization kissing his ass has me questioning my fandom right now.

I find it interesting when people like someone they call it capitalism, and it's a good thing. But when they don't like them, it's called greed, and a bad thing.

Is it really greedy to ask for fair market value? You don't think someone else would pay that much for Rodgers?

Also, the NFL owners are the greediest... players don't even get 50% splits and then split it up among 1,700 people... the owners get over 50% and split it up among 32.

So yeah... the players are SO greedy by taking a market value for their services... DIRECTLY from the much richer and greedy owners.

Beast, I don’t think it has anything to do with liking or not liking any particular player.
And as I said, it’s the free market. And if someone is willing to pay it, so be it. But it will come to a head some day.
And I do believe it is greed for Rodgers to complain how the Packers didn’t keep his buddies, and at the same time he KNEW that there is a salary cap, which handcuffs the Packers from just keeping everyone. That, and there are only 53 roster spots. So taking up the majority of available money, then acting all butt hurt because the FO let players go, it makes it hard for me to feel sorry for him or to take his side in this.
Again, it’s my opinion. That’s all.
If people want to feel sorry for him, they can.

Your first sentence had me going SPOT FREAKING ON.

I have said this before and will say it again. I think it would be better if the public didn't know the money side of things. It's as beneficial as that stupid MTV Cribs show where people flaunt their homes with 14 bedrooms, 5 full baths and 12 sports cars and they only "live" there 7 months a year. But, hey, they somehow earned that money so be it, but I think it threw the rich people into a competitive "oh yeah, check out this" deal. Meanwhile we have almost 600,000 people without a home in our Country.

That being said, Aaron Rodgers is very generous with his money and his TIME. And TIME is something money cannot buy. Of course, that isn't sexy so you all don't know much about it because you're too busy having a good life while I'm the loser who reads it all and tries to pass it along. And then I get "we will never know" comments.

The best part is they can send his ass to Miami next year or the Jets and we should make a decent haul and have plenty of caproom left to sign new players. And beast said something else that really irks me and that is how college players are now being paid. I have to ask weren't they being paid already with the scholarships I mean what does a 3 or 4 year course cost? $120,000 or so, that sure sounds like a decent paying job for playing a game and something that will help you maybe make millions

Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be 🙂
