YOU obviously haven't been watching him over the years. He's no where near as good as he was 5 or so years ago. His defense hasn't been as good and his offense is about half of what it used to be. You don't sign a player who's getting worse to a deal worth that much money.

He's been better this year then last year, but that's not hard to beat. He was terrible last year.
That is the unfortunate part about capitalism... there is market value and also false value. I dont have an issue with what Neil or Phillips are getting paid. It is way more than anyone should make really, but the players earn the owners the money and deserve a cut of it.

Both Neil and Phillips could have easily got more on the open market. Phillips hasn't regressed that much. The team regressed and he couldn't hold it on his shoulders. He isn't Alfie (aka GOD).
