Most people can't get past the money point - but the treatment is the treatment
regardless if it is voluntary or not - the current system is what it is

NFL Players cant even choose who their employers are or where they get traded unless they pull a T.O or your name is Randy Moss and you alienate everyone to get your way

But again most people cant get past how much money these guys make and look at the conditions objectively

Seems as if college educated NFL player Mendy can.
He knows the system better than any of us.

Just take him off your fantasy team.... when Mendy scores TD's for us and wins games will you cheer for him then?
