Re: Mendenhall backs Peterson's 'slave' comment
I knew my comments wouldn't go over well here but I stand behind what I said
When I graduated college I had 3 job offers on the table -
I was able to choose who I worked for
Sadly NFL players can not
They are drafted and pretty much forced to play for whomever drafts them
I dont think that's right - yes they can sit out or pull an Eli Manning but they risk not getting paid for a year if they do.
Now the owners are talking about a rookie wage scale to further muck things up?
Mendy didnt know what he was getting into when he was drafted but after a few years in the NFL he sees it for what it is
