  • Salary cap question.

    Hey. I have a question in regards to this.


    what does the players contract entail? Just to play for the team and attend practices and whatnot?


    Do players get extra money for the random things that they do for the team? For instance Tiki Barber used to host a NY Giants TV show made for kids. Did he get paid extra for that?


    Is there anything stopping a team from offering a player a contract for $4 million a year, but then giving him a lot of side work and paying him for that as well (but not having it count against the cap)?

    Generally players are obligated to certain functions in their contracts that they do not get paid for, it's just part of the generally understood contract and obligation as part of the team (or so Charlie Frye told me when he signed his rookie contract...name dropping? you bet).

    In terms of Tiki's show, that sounds something entirely different.

      Is dropping Charlie Frye's name really name dropping?

      So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

          None but I'm also not so pretentious that I feel the need to make myself feel better by saying I have the cell number of Charlie Frye on an internet forum either. So congrats on your friendship with Charlie Frye, hey maybe your new buddy can get you some good tickets to a game.

            Do you know what pretentious means? I don't think that this means that I am of an upper or elite status.

            I brought it up cause it was germaine to the subject. I feel quite fine about myself either way, but I still think it's pretty cool. If you don't that's fine, but I don't think acting like a dick makes you any cooler either.

            As for the tickets he got me some nice suite seats his rookie season. No dice last year and I'm moving so...

                Grew up down the street from me. We're the same age and played football together. Known him pretty much my whole life.

                  Pretentious- 1 : characterized by pretension : as a : making usually unjustified or excessive claims (as of value or standing) b : expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature
                  2 : making demands on one's skill, ability, or means : AMBITIOUS

                  So now that the meaning of the word has been established, yes I feel that you were in that comment being pretentious. Of course when I made my remark about name dropping, I was merely insinuating that Charlie Frye is not exactly an elite NFL player so as it is not exactly a big name to drop. Not to mention the intent of my remark was to be comical and sarcastic, but apparently that eluded you and for that I apologize.

                    I understand what you're saying, which is why I responded with my question. I would say that knowing any NFL QB, elite status or not, is pretty cool. If you were buddies with Kyle Boller wouldn't that be cool? Boller certainly hasn't done anything in the NFL more than Charlie.

                      Did you ever play "doctor"? Tell the truth, I'll know if you're lying!

                        Indeed, the fact that you have a friendship with Charlie Frye is excellent, in fact kudos are in store. And yes it would be an honor and pleasure to be friends with Kyle Boller, especially when he was dating Tara Reid. Alas the only contact with Kyle has been a few conversations at training camp his 1st and 2nd seasons, and I must say he is quite respectful in the fact that he referred to me as sir since I am a couple years his senior.

                            Yeah dweeb really fell off the map in terms of vocabulary and deserves another shot at the mainstream.
