  • Giants' Victor Cruz: "I Want To Stay Here, This Is My Home"

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/09/...is-is-my-home/

    Excerpt: "The NFL is through the first week of playoffs and for many New York Giants, it's still hard to accept that they aren't playing. Punter Steve Weatherford has expressed his frustration, head coach Tom Coughlin detailed the emotional strain it's put on him, and wide receiver Victor Cruz, who appeared on ESPN's "The Herd" on Tuesday, says sitting home "hurts."

    “It definitely stings,” Cruz said, “especially coming off the season we had last year. After winning the Super Bowl, you want to be able to go back to the playoffs and have the chance to do it again. It will hurt for a while."

    Cruz made no excuses, though. Like teammate Chris Snee, who said following their week 17 victory that they "didn't deserve" to make the playoffs, the Pro Bowl wide receiver feels the Giants were their own worst enemy, and that they have no one to blame but themselves." Read more...

      It annoys me when players say things like this then demand top dollar.

      If you actually wanted to stay here then take less money and be happy about it.

          We don't know what he's asking for.

            The thread about him wanting 8-10 million

            Theres a reason his contract is not done now. It's because he wants a lot more than the giants are willing to pay him

              He didnt ask for that. Someone comapred him to elite wideouts and how much they make and came out with that number.

                All players want more than the teams are willing to pay.

                  That range of figures was an uneducated guess by the media head who wrote that article. He based it on what four or five other players contracts were and made an ASSUMPTION. Neither Cruz nor any of his handlers have publicly revealed what their asking price is.

                    I know. I don't have a problem with that. I have a problem with them saying "I want to stay" when really it's "I want to stay as long as you are offering me as much as anyone else would"

                    His quote makes it seem like he's a team guy and would do anything for the team, but we all know that's not how it works.

                    If he was saying what Bennett said, "I would take a discount to stay here" then it may have some meaning.

                      I think he gets a nice big signing bonus then 7 - 8 per year over 5 years.

                        He IS a team guy and I'm very sure he DOES want to stay.

                        That doesn't mean he should let himself be taken advantage of though. Its good business.
                        I have no doubt that he was completely sincere in that statement.

                        You're just too cynical.

                        And Bennet's agent is an idiot for allowing him to say that.

                          Bennett also said it would depend on what it meant to give a hometown discount.

                            The business side of things is between his agent and the gm. Teams don't take it personal, fans shouldn't either.

                            Edit: And I think most players would play for less if contracts had to be fully honored by teams, but that's not the case in the NFL. I watch games to watch players play, not watch a rich owner getting richer every year while sitting in his press box.

                              they wouldn't have come out with that number if he didn't ask for it. He should've denied he wanted that much if he didn't/
