I mean, its not like its any of your money....
if owners are true to their word, it will become a problem. this is year 1 of 4... with the cap probably shrinking next year. he better be damn good at draws for 4 year or we are gonna be really hating his contract. i can deal with his contract now but in a year or two with a shrinking cap we will see.. and honestly, in a weird way, it is kind of my money in a microscopic way. i mean i have supported this team for a long time
