This is not play hard 3 of 4 years and then be a crying pansy baby in your final year because you don't get an extension.

Honestly....(and this goes beyond Faneca too)....if you act like this....or if you do the worst and completely hold out.....you don't get paid at all....period...not fined little piddly slap-on-the-wrist amounts...in fact it should be a breach of that original contract and the team should have the ability to sue the money back out of you.

I'm absolutely sick of guys demanding more money in the last year of their contract. I mean, sure it's a risk to go into your last year without a new contract...I completely understand.....but you're in a very risky sport....an injury could happen at any time, any day anyways. Go play golf if you want zero-risk.

I am a firm believer that you play out your contract and shut up about gripes. He signed the damn thing at the time and was the first or second highest paid guard in football. Just because other teams are stupid with their spending, does not mean the Steelers need to do the same.

If you feel you are underpaid, talk to your agent about securing an extension. If they don't want to pay what you think you should get, then play out your contract then go make the insane money from someone else, like Dan Snyder.

What really let me down is when he talked about playing with "No Security". WTF??? Alan, I will trade places with you for one year. I will take one year at $4+ million and you can have my job indefinitely?I guarantee you that I will be secure for life with that one year!!!!!!
