Chew on That

Jerry Fahrni: “Median household income in 2009 in the US was approximately $50K. Median NFL player salary is approximately $770,000. That means the average person in the US has to work about 15 years to earn that. Think about that for minute. Now do the math on these: Cowboys signed Tyson Smith to a four-year, $12.5 million deal which is entirely guaranteed. Bengals signed A.J. Green to a four-year, $19.6 million deal, all of which is also guaranteed. Denver signed Von Miller to a four-year, $21-million deal. The players are complaining that these contracts are “low”. Chew on that for a while.”

Yes, I’d ride the pine for $770,000 a year.

The AZ Cardinals just sign Larry Fitzgerald to a $120.00 million deal.

What I find funny is that I’m sometimes hated by techs because I make about $100,000 per year, but these same techs have season tickets to the Cardinals games and are BIG fans of Fitzgerald.
