I have never had ANY issue with how much any athlete gets paid. Not one iota.
The only beef we, as fans, should have is how the GM allocates the cap.

And the Saints would not be 3-0 right now if either Drew Brees or Jimmy Graham were not on the roster. They are far and away the two most critical players in any success the Saints will have in the immediate future.

Re: Saints, Graham talks going nowhere (just for the heck of it)

Florio brings this up about 4 or 5 times a year and it's always the same thing. Saints don't have cap space, Saints won't shell out market value, blah blah blah.

Yet every year, we have enough cap space not only to keep our own guys but to sign free agents from other teams.

It won't last forever. In 4 or 5 years, Brees will eventually retire and we'll have to do what the Colts did: blow it up, eat a bunch of dead money and try to do a quick rebuild. But until that happens Loomis is going to keep everything going.

Florio is a twit. Market value is what we paid Drew...

JG wants a Super Bowl, he knows his contract is coming. He'll keep playing like a beast.
