I’m tired of it. Sick and tired of it. We have one of the best running backs in the league and while everyone else on the team is at camp, he’s not. Why? Because of money. In a way, I don’t blame him. Running backs have a very short career which can end abruptly after an injury so they have to get their money while they’re worth it. But… This is ridiculous. We want CJ and in a statement just released by the Titans organization, Mike Reinfeldt has stated that the Titans are ready to make CJ2K the highest paid running back in the NFL. They are just asking that CJ shows up to camp to start learning the new playbook and system. That’s all they’ve been asking all along and I think it sounds fair enough. The problem is CJ doesn’t want to show up until he’s got his new contract. This is killing me. Both sides just need to stop being so stubborn and come together and get this deal done.
Money is destroying the NFL and ruining all the joy I used to get from it. This year has been a prime example. The Lockout that held us hostage for months was one of the most grueling and annoying things ever and what was it all about? Money. Cash, money homie. Players are wanting more and more and blowing it all on stupid bling and toys… even covering their teeth in gold. If the NFL keeps going this way and getting softer it’ll become unbearable.
But bringing it back to the topic… Pay the man and lets get back to focusing on football. I’m tired of hearing all this crap.
