But again, what the players understand the most is that you are paid to perform in their industry. If you do not, you risk losing your job.
And I get all that. I have been saying that all along. Akers sucks. But why wait until now? why didnt they make a move say back in week 10? or week 11 for example. Its the timing I am questioning.
