It seems like sports has become just synonymous with money.. we spent twice as much time talking about monetary issues rather then the sport itself. This is just crazy and drives me crazy. Between players contract talks and the labor agreements talks we're kind of losing touch with the sport itself. Now we get a hard-on for the contract the player signs rather then for how many goals the guy scored. This just sucks.
The football season is starting and all we hear is Revis Revis Revis, **** him suspend him for the year teach him (and all these overpaid athletes) a lesson who the REAL BOSS is.
Welcome to 2010 America. Why should sports be any different? And if you think players are overpaid, how about the head of a major company who was pretty just fired for cause, but got a severance package of between $40-$50 Million to ease his pain? Professional sports are just following the leader here.
