I have a hard time feeling sorry for a guy that goes from making $7 million a year to $2.75 million a year. I guess he'll have to cut back on the extra cheese he gets on his burgers.. I know that it is a huge pay cut, but he's basically pleading with the middle class fans that support the team to feel sorry for him when most of them are effected way worse by this crappy economy.

A guy doesn't agree to that kind of a cut if deep down he doesn't belive he lost a step and doesn't deserve it anymore. Ike's gonna be covering the opponent's #2. That ain't wort 7 mil. I don't begrudge him being pissed about it, but that's how it goes. And I still like Ike. Whenever one of my hunting dogs gets too old to go out with me anymore, that doesn't mean it's useless or that I love it any less. But the young dog gets the bigger portion because it's doing more work.

If you don't begrudge the team using leverage to invalidate a contract at any point based on last year's performance, you must not begrudge a player using leverage to do the same thing, right? Or do you say, "You signed the contract, live with it."

Feeling bad for millionaires....haha funniest shit Iv'e read all year. Some of you....ha! Ike doesn't deserve those numbers as somebody else said, this has nothing to do with the past.

Learn how to catch the ball Ike...then again the saying "you can't teach a dog old tricks" comes to mind. Like I said before I don't believe in our group of corners and I have every reason to not believe. Ike and Gay are NOT the answer.

That is all....

Some fans resent the players. Why be a fan?

Ike needs a reality check. I appreciate all he's given to the Steelers over the years.

But......

Based on his recent season performances, he's paid quite well.

Teams that reward loyalty usually regret doing so.
