[quote user="JPizzack"][quote user="Morehead State"]Osi does NOT want to be a Giant this season under any circumstances. He views a trade as his only chance for a big contract and it has to be this season. he will continue to be a back up in 2012 for us and after the season he'll be a year older. He knows that his chances for a pay day are shrinking as every day passes.
In other words, he will pout and whine and complain and be a general irratant to the team.</p>
I posted about this last week:
Why do we make such a big deal about contract hold outs. sure they seem whiny and childish, but just like you said, this is Osi's only opportunity to make more money.
In the NBA, Dwight Howard demanded a trade from Orlando, and it never happened, and everyone around the league, players analysts etc all say the same thing "it's bad business for Orlando to not deal him, youre now messing with a guy's money, and that's not good" and everyone gets behind him.
Osi does the same thing, and every calls him a piece of ****. Whether you like it or not, these past few years, Osi could have made ALOT more money on another team. Now asa Giants fan, thats good for us, but how can people not see that he reserves the right to first ask for a negotiation, and now, a trade? It doesnt help that we've paid other people more than him, and given them sizeable signing bonuses...specifically Kiwi. Not that I see anything wrong with the Kiwi signing, but yea, it does cause waves with Osi for obvious reasons.</p>[/quote]Its the way Osi goes about asking for a new contract/a trade. Its the attitude. Its the faking of the severity of an injury not just once but twice! In one year! First before training camp he lied saying he didnt need surgery to get a new contract, and then during the season. I really believe he wasnt injured or wasnt hurt enough to the point he couldnt play. Once we started winning he magically healed. NO ONE questions that move and it drives me crazy.
