But because he got an opportunity here, he got a shot at getting PAID by his standards, and good for him, I'd take it too. You're being unrealistic if you think Earl should have been loyal and taken 4 mil here over 9 mil there, this is a business, it's easy for us to say he should take less money, but it's not our money or family to support. When he said he'd take less money here he was probably thinking he'd get offered 5 elsewhere and take 4 here, but you get 9, you freakin take it.
And Rock, what about Dwight, if he doesn't want to stay he doesn't want to stay, oh well. He can get the most money here, that's not the issue.
yea i guess i worded that poorly. it's hard to turn down a pay-raise that large. i think maybe more accurately it's just disappointing that we lose him...not so much the person disappointing me. i just have this impending sense of disappointment regarding players leaving this team (wink wink), so it's all a bit of a downer.
