But you figure that there’s a tragic event like the Redskins experienced there will be wagons circled and everybody will be going balls out with both barrels. And of course, they did. They played with pride and passion.
For 59:52, anyway. Then Joe Gibbs went all geritol upon the candy asses of the Buffalo Bills. One unsportsmanlike conduct penalty later?
Bills 17, Redskins 16.
So. Mariano Rivera. You were getting an insane contract offer. You’d be getting 15 Million Dollars to play baseball at the age of 40. And by play baseball, I do mean an inning every other game or so.
I made mention of how fiscally ridiculous the contract offer is, but the fact of the matter? I would not blame the player for the owners idiocy. If he was going to get a crazy offer, he’d be a fool not to take it.
Apparently, Mariano Rivera is a fool.
In a baffling decision. Rivera rejected this offer for want of love and extra security.
- Rivera, who turns 38 on Nov. 29, has instructed his agents to shop him, in part because he was angered by Hank Steinbrenner referring to his age in recent comments about the Yankees’ offer, a source says.
Sure, the 4th year is slightly understandable. They’d drop the salary something fierce if you wanted to play through the age of 41. Sure, there would be a cluture shock of going from 15 mil to like 4 mil. I get that.
But this diva business? This whole act is simply retarded. You’re the greatest closer of all time in several circles. It’s not a sense of disrespect. It’s business.
Cripes alfridey, I’m a 26 year old slacker and I have more maturity than this douche!
