we might need a grass roots campaign to help the idea along, so :

---Everybody at B & G buy three Brees jerseys this week- they make a great V-day gifts, keep one, give one to to someone less fortunate, be creative, but just BUY!

once the money starts pouring in we can all say we helped contribute to keeping the team together

It's over the top, but Michael Jordan played for peanuts so he could keep Pippen & Rodman. He did pretty darn good with his endorsements though.

I don't know about that. You do realize he was the highest paid player ever for a single season right. 33 million was hardly peanuts.

Have you been in an accident or hit your head in the last twenty-four (24) hours?

You might want to see a physician.

There's thinking out of the box and then there's taking Alice by the hand and falling down the rabbit hole...

Just messin' with ya!

Michael Jordan was paid between $3 and $5 million per season. The NBA had strict salary caps and MJ took pay cuts to surround himself with good talent before his 1st retirement. When the NBA lifted the amount a player can make if resigning with his own team as a free agent, Jordan was paid $20 Million the first full season out of retirement and then $25 million each year after that for the bulls.

Like I said.....Jordan took pay cuts to keep talent on his team (and yes.....$3-$5 million/year was peanuts for Michael Jordan). It is a well known fact that he made most of his money on endorsements, like Nike & Gatorade.......not as a player.
