Default Re: Goodell on rookie pay: 'There's something wrong'

I agree with Goodell. WHy should these kids get all this money without having to prove themselves on the field. In life you pay your dues, then you get paid, not the other way around. I bet there are veterans in the league who never see the kind of money that this Ryan kid is getting. WHy should Ryan get a huge ass contract like that and never have taken a hit in the NFL? Goodell is not the only one complaining. Other veterans are complaining also. No way should these kids get these huge contracts without playing a down. No way.

And that's probably why the players union is looking to find a new leader!!

the max rookie salary should be 3 year/3mil with a max signing bonus of 1 mil.

if you cannot live on that then try the CFL.

they say that because they are earning less. would these same veterans being saying this during their rookie season? i doubt it.

Except 10-12 years ago, the #1 pick got maybe 7-10 million guarunteed. 5 years ago, Eli Manning got 24 (?) million. It is insane how much rookie salaries are increasing. That would be like a 15 year cashier working his first job making like 20-25 a hour and the manager making 14-17.
