Default Open Letter to Alan Faneca

Alan, From a long time Steelers fan, we love ya.

We have watched and cheered for you since you first days as a Steeler. You are one of the best guards in the NFL, and have continued to play at a pro Bowl level for years.

In 2002 the Steelers made you the highest paid guard in the NFL, and repotedly there were only 4 line men in the league that were paid more than you that year. In 2003 there were 48 line men that made more than you, in 2004 there were 30, in 2005 there were 7 guards that were more highly paid. You played your heart out each and every one of thoes years all under the contract that made you the highest paid guard in the NFL.

Guess what, you still have one more year under that contract, SO SHUT UP AND PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Makes sense! Play your guts out this year and you will get rewarded, whether it be by the Steelers or not. Whine and cry and keep losing more money! No one wants to pay a cry baby!

Yeah Alan

Please listen to us tell you what is in your best personal and financial interests - we know far better than you how the negotiations have proceeded, what the going market rate is for top shelf guards entering the latter stages of their career, and how it feels to be paid in our chosen occupations millions less than comparable specialists.

I know we would all listen to you if you told us how to negotiate raises with our bosses.

Concur Alan has a contract, his job is the play hard and do his best so that the Steelers pay him as much as they feel he is worth.........this whining is not good. I would not be surprised if he gets traded before the season starts

Millions? Did you say MILLIONS, Dan? Must be nice to play 20 odd games a year and get paid in one year what most of us can't even dream of ringing up in a lifetime, yet still whine and blubber about it. I know we'd all make huge hits with our employers if we went public with our gripes instead of doing what most adult professionals do - shut their yaps and attempt to work it out with the employer privately. I'm sorry - I have absolutely no sympathy for Faneca in this situation. Zip, zilch, nada.
