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 â€œlowâ€. 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.
You are Larry Fitzgerald to them. They look up and see you, you(we) look up and see Fitzgerald. Ironic, isn’t it?
