So if this guy is a hockey enforcer with 31 career points and 669 career penalty minutes he should be more entitled than me? Really? Some of the upper-echelon players making millions will not have to work past hockey unless they want to, that's for sure...but this guy, sure he has to. And he is making good money while playing a game.

I am not sure I understand your position. He's got it really, really good...and he is spoiled rotten.
Excellent post.
