    players become all about the money, not all but a lot do. They are getting paid millions to do something they love and something we do in our back yard for free. I would play on the NYG for what I make now in the military. I would do whatever they wanted for 50K. lol

    No offense, but I hate that oversimplification of professional sports. We all fist fights growing up, and maybe even as adults. We all have played back yard football as well. To compare that to guys like Floyd Mayweather, and Jon Beason that have been training their entire lives and working at becoming good at these sports seems silly.

    Great story: Vinny Testaverde thought himself a great tennis player in his own right. He's friend with Jim Courier, so one day he challenged him to a game. Vinny's first serve Courier returned it for a winning point with the handle of his raquet. There in lies the difference between backyard sports and professionals.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.

    They are obviously better than us and are getting paid the money for a reason. I was just stating that for the fact of Allen saying pay me what I want or I'll retire. That is greedy IMO.
