Default Re: Red Shirt

Unfortunately, the amount of money these players make,and the way contracts are written these days, with injury clauses in them, players are the ones losing out on all the cash..the teams themselves have thier asses covered by contract clauses that say they dont have to pay out money if the player is injured for a certain number of games per year, etc.

It's not a bad idea, to have a red shirt like u mentioned, but also as you mentioned, it most likely will never happen.. for ever kendrell bell, kellen winslow, ki jana carter.. there are 20 other players who go thru season after season w/ out major injury.

Good thinking cleve !!! :D
