A simple case of have and have nots.
I'm not sure you can argue the point though when your admitting that 6 of the 20 highest paid players are on your team. What is that? Potentially 67% of your starting lineup. 30% of the entire league. Just sayin'
And listen, I stated earlier in the thread that I had no dog in this race. It really dosen't matter to me one bit. I'm just trying to rationalize to you why it is that the yanks are a love 'em or hate 'em team. It's probably nothing you haven't heard before, I know.
I also have no problem giving props to fans who are level headed and have earned some respect, but I will, however not offer the same for those who demand it.
For the record, I would LOVE to see the Buc's stop trading away all of their home grown talent. It's a shame.
