Re: Should Drew Play for Less $$ ?

Every contract should have incentives for play. Reach this get x amount, complete this get x, would you pay 100 million to 1 person on a bad team, I wouldn't, it limits things immediatly. Going rate is going rate what else do you do.

So restructuring raises your respect level but

Immersing yourself into the culture and climate of a city....
Building a brand that will be the standard for years to come
Bringing them success, and a Super Bowl ring...
None of these things constitute as respect earners?

BTW........ Either way this goes he's not giving anything back, taking upfront money and getting off the cap is further delaying the fact that we have to pay for what we got from him which was and is over exceeding expectations!!!!

He aint all that.

Alaska
Alaska.... Russell Wison didn't win this game, he just didn't lose it.... As evidence by the 219 yards, 2 tds, and no ints game he gives them while they hand the MVP to MIKE SMITH??? Check these factors maybe they will bring you back to this planet..., turnover ratio..., rushing attempts ( just who had more attempts) red zone defense..... Third down conversion... If you check every one of those I think you'll find that the running qb didn't do anything more than the cerebral qb did....... Calm down....lol

this is where i have a problem when people say what you just said. its a difference to be earning money that is probably taking you paycheck to paycheck versus money that may effect whether you get another porshe, or vacation home in the aspens. i'm like the person that stated no one should be earning 20 mil a year and feel he shouldnt take a cut to better a team chances of winning. hell he got more than enough money! so i vote if he cares more about winning than getting paid he should take a pay cut so it increases the chances of the saints winning this year (2014-15)

So then if you are not paying 100m to grab a difference makes to take your team out of the ashes how are you going to get him there?

While putting performance bonuses on play is fine in theory in practice it drives the wrong behaviors for a few reasons.

1. A coach can kill someones bonus just by not playing him to save cap space.
2. It will cause players to go public if they feel like they missed their bonus because of a bad officiating call or someone else got more playing time.
3. Owners will pressure coaches to keep the cap down intentionally.

That is your view which is based on where you are financially.

Its the difference between someone entering a career path that can end in 5 years and crippled having enough money to not have to flip burgers at Wendys.

You assume what people with 20m would do with it. Show any evidence at all that Drew Brees has any of the things you listed? And if he does what is it any concern of yours?

"More than enough" is an extremely nearsighted view. There is no "more than enough", when it comes to me ensuring that my children and their children for generations to come have college paid for and never having to work pay check to pay check.

Voting to take a cut in pay with no guarantee of winning is a fools bet, and fools and their money easily part.

Re: Should Drew Play for Less $$ ?

Let's see if this changes peoples view on value and market pricing.

Forget that $100M is someone's paycheck.... That makes it way too personal and hits too close to home for some to look at it the way it should.

Scenario:

Your company of 3 people (you, your wife and your daughter) invented a widget/technology; and you own the IP (intellectual property), patent, copy right, etc...

That widget/technology cost you $500 to produce.

Major corporation X is interested in buying it from you, company name, IP and all. You know and can prove that your widget/technology will save them $400 million over the next 4 years.

Keep in mind, once you sell it, you are done with it; you , your wife and daughter are unemployed.

What is your asking price for that widget/technology and your company?

I would lease it to them and charge $1 per $10 saved perpetually.
