Biggest cliche in the league right now.
I wish it were as easy as that, but most guys want to test UFA to see their value on the open market and get the most money

If Martin were open to negotiating, I think Lou would go after it

I would be very surprised if someone throws him 6.5+ because of what CD basically said.

Sure, people put up with a lot of crap from Camp Lou, but isn't that worth it in the end to live a normal life with your family?
Exactly. He's a hippie and a very chill person. I am going to try to go to as many phish concerts as I can because I know he will be at one of them
