I can see why that would hurt your argument, because maybe he doesn't have this burning desire to play in Philly the way you think. But I really wasn't trying to make that point (although I guess I just did, haha).
Give me a ****ing break. 49 million over 7 years is more per year than 52 mill over 8 years, the math isn't hard. If he makes 3.1 million the year after the deal is over (quite possible), than he makes more money on the 7 year deal than he does on the 8 year deal.
Would you prefer a 7 year 49 million contract? I'd rather have the lower cap hit personally. And I don't think he has a "burning desire" to play in Philly, he's a professional.
I never said he had a "burning desire." My original point is there and still stands although Jester apparently thinks I'm censoring people by making them think.
