Default Re: NFL Player Loses Pay For Attending Funeral

I don't have a problem with the the player taking the week off for his Grandmothers funeral. However the player wasn't fined, he just didn't get paid for the time off. He made that decision himself. I'm pretty sure most of us would be in the same boat with our employers.

The guy is pretty fortunate to have a job that pays that much to begin with. Hard to feel to sorry for someone whose weekly paycheck exceeds what most of us make all year.
