Yeah Kovy who (along with his agent) made it known how important it was for him to receive a $100 mil contract. I feel real bad for him... How much money did he bank his first 2 years of his contract???
What you describe in your post happens in the workplace all the time. When employers lose money they extend paycuts to their employees... Us average joe's deal with this all the time. Why should we feel bad for professional athletes with multi-million dollar contracts who have to endure the same circumstances?
