At least we have no primadonna crybabies left. No one on the Dolphins is good enough to hold out!
I’m sure many of you will disagree, but I found it disgusting that Jerry Jones caved in and spoon-fed Zeke Elliott all those millions. It sets a really poor, dangerous precedent when a man can sign a legally binding contract and then say, “Nah, just kidding. I want more money.”
LaVeon Bell destroyed the 2018 Steelers with that kind of nonsense. Melvin Gordon is about to destroy the Chargers. I can respect Jerry Jones for not wanting that to happen to his beloved Cowboys, but his actions send the wrong messages to other NFL players. Soon, average Joes will be holding our for more money, and not just star players.
The league needs a way to handle these ungrateful whiners. Maybe suspend them 3 games for every week they don’t honor their contract. That makes their value come way down. An owner will not pay them a full salary, let alone give them a raise, if they can only play in a handful of games.
If they hold out all year, make it illegal for any other team to sign them. There has to be SOME ramifications when you refuse to honor the agreement that you already signed.
