    so at what point were they camping?

    anyways, as bf51 put it. its like having a child and if they don't follow your rules you don't put them up for adoption(at least i would hope not). you bring out the whip(keep them in their contract if they play or not) although i believe in the contract it states they have to play. correct me if im wrong about the contract thing, or is it different for each team. holding out should be a breach of contract then and they could force them to play (maybe not whole-heartedly or with any effort but they will play)

      Holding out is a breach of contract, and they don't get paid their weekly salaries or bonuses when they're holding out.

        Will Smith will play out his rookie contract. I highly doubt he holds out or does anything that puts himself before the team. It just does not sound like anything he would do. If you look at Grant's contract, it is backloaded, which means he will probably be traded or released in a few years. Smith's contract is up in 2 years and he will more than likely receive a big salary. I'm not worried at all.

        And I agree with bf51. As a fan I am tired of hearing how players, who make more in a season than I will make in a lifetime are insisting on higher pay and will threaten to hold out if they do not receive it. In my opinion players are not worth nearly as much as they get paid, but since that is the nature of the sport then let them compete and show the franchise that they deserve the money that they think they should make before causing a media frenzy by threatening to hold out.

          Who gives a ****?

          You can show up, get paid, do a good job, and make millions of dollars.

          Or you can not show up, make nothing, and waste away the better part of your career.
          it's possible that maybe these kids should get an effing education so they don't have to worry about effing football all the time as the only source of income they're ever going to get in their life.

          okay. so i want to be super rich. great. play football and don't be such a god d*** cu*t about it. geez, these men are whinier than me. blah blah blah, i don't get paid enough, blah blah blah. so your career is on average 4 years. with minimum salary, you'll still end up making like a million dollar in four years. with proper investment, and a steady day job afterwards, you'll live life in the fast line forever. besides, all the whiners are still making shitloads of money. briggs was like a mill a year or something like that... with seven million, with proper investing, you shouldn't ever have to worry about SH*T. for serious.

          nfl clubs should offer lessons in investing.

          but, now i sound like a bears FO fangirl. they gave TJ what he wanted because it was benificial to them. and he was a whiner. but. they really probably have the biggest coglioni with the briggs situation. most teams woulda taken the trade to the skins just to save face. but i think jerry angelo has re-earned the respect of bears fan everywhere.

            Will Smith is much better than Charles Grant, so I too would be mad if I were him.

              Pfft. He hasn't said anything yet and Smith is acting as if he's not going to receive his dough which he clearly is.
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                same old Grady.

                  I don't think the Lions have any intention of signing Redding long-term, but that's just me. I think the reason they drafted Ikaika Alma-Francis was to be the future next to Shaun Rogers, who is now on board with Marinelli's plans. I think they plan to keep Redding this year as a stop gap and develop Alma Francis. Then, they let Redding walk after this year. This is just me speculating, but I think it is a possibility.

                    Asante Samuel is also unhappy. Hes not deserving of a Clements contract really..not many CBs are(not even Nate). His tattoo says "Get Paid"..my only concern with giving him so much is that he starts swimming in the money and not working to his potential

                      Asante Samule deserves the dough he led the league in pics. And he has also shown that he is one of the best CBs in the league.

                        Not to mention he's pretty damn young as well.

                          It's not even a matter of deserving or not deserving the money, it's a matter of effectively convincing a franchise to give it to you. These players act like they are entitled to the money. That's why you have a union that negotiates. That's why you have an agent that negotiates. That's why you have contracts, and bonuses, and so forth.

                          But it's not their fault, it's the franchises fault. They need to stop caving everytime a player cries about getting more money. That should automatically disqualify the player for any negotiations for the year. You go public, you get nothing. You threaten to hold out, you get nothing. As I stated before, franchises are so concerned about public backlash by some season ticket holder that says:

                          "We let this guy walk away when we could have gotten a 3rd round draft choice!?!?"

                          When the point is that for every player you allow to go public and get their way, you're letting 5-10 more guys do the same thing. I was extremely dissapointed that the Pats traded Branch. Same with the Eagles cutting T.O. although in that case I understood. These are supposed to be the franchises that stood up and didn't let players push them around. I will be equally dissapointed if the Bears cave in with Briggs, whether he deserves a new contract or not isn't even the point. Don't like the franchise tag? Take it up with your union, but don't expect any sympathy from me.


                          Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.
