Default Re: Would you hold out ?

i would hold out if:

- i was not being offered a fair contract,
- i played in a city like cleveland,
- if my qb was kyle boller

i would sign for $1 to get a chance to put on a steeler uniform and play for the greatest fans and franchise in the NFL

This isn't T.O. who signs a contract one year and demands more the next year. This isn't Javaon Walker who has one good season and demands more money. This is Hines Ward the hardest working, a very dominent WR, and a class act. Its easy to say if I were Hines I would play for $500,000 this year. Thats crap I would hold out if I could get $12 mill up front and yearly salary int he millions. Who wouldn't?

Anyway Cleve I was told you are the person to find out about eating after practice in Latrobe. Any suggetions?

he is greedy and selfish but thats not the side everyone see,only if you know him on a personal level, but all you see is the fake front that he puts on in front of the t.v. screen for all his interviews, like he is so perfect or something. Let him go to another team, he dont have that many years left in him anyway. He won't make or break the team, yeah he is an asset, but for you die hard steelers fans if they get rid of him are you saying that the team cant go on to a superbowl without him? I hope not, once again... money talks and bullsh*t walks... so walk on Ward. Deep down you know he still will be here somehow but hopefully someone else wants him and then ya'll can get a fresh, young WR next year!!!

There isn't that many good WRs in the league. You gotta hang onto this guy if you can. Greed....please........this is AMERICA.........the harder you are to be replaced the more bread you will bring home. That simple. That goes with any job out there. The harder you are to be replaced the more you will earn. Don't get mad at a guy for trying to have millions. Wouldn't you like those millions? When was the last time you talked to Hines? Since you know the "true Hines".

My take on this is very simple and is unique to the Steelers and perhaps the Panthers. Wide Recievers are not worth 50 million in this system. That's the bottom line. I love Hines Ward... but that 86 will fit over someone else's pads if need be.

Literally speaking u r correct, they can make an 86 to fit anybody ;) ...but figuratively, I'd agree w/ one of our bengal friens there that Hines is a mainstay of this team. He's meant so much to the team for so long now, I'd be hard pressed to give that up without a good long fight to keep him.

I'd also agree that WR's in our offense are different than many. The fair market value is a grey area in our organization. Both sides need to agree and see that point and not until then will this get done.

What can you do with 60 million that you can't do with 50 million????????????????? Just sign and play is what I say.

A lot more.....If you get 60 mil you get 50 after taxes, unless you live out of the country which is what I would do, I would live in Mexico...In years too come the money will go away and 60 will last longer then 50.........would you rather have 50 thousand or 60 thousand, thats the same as 50 mil or 60 mil.........The more the better!!!!!

I agree. Hines is a great player. As Blitz said I don't want to lose this guy. I don't think he is being unreasonable wanting his contract extension and wanting paid for his work. The problem is here we do not know the exact figures on the deal or what all the details are. We only have speculation and some its around figures. I don't want Ward to sit out, but I am not going to hate him over it if he does. I do think they will come to an agreement by the first maybe second week of camp. Maybe and hopefully even sooner.
