Market value is not an opinion. It is an economic FACT.

An opinion is stating something like, "Personally, I don't think any player is worth $25 million."

On the other hand, stating, "NO PLAYER IS WORTH 25 MILLION A YEAR TO PLAY FOOTBALL!," is not an opinion. It is stated as fact and you know darned well that very soon there will be dozens of players making just that. Reality is and always has been and always will be that actual worth or value is set by what the free and open market is willing to bear. It is one of the most basic principles of economics.

Just because clubs choose to pay players the so called market value that doesn't mean my opinion about it is wrong it's still my opinion that no one is worth 25 million to play football.

Yes, stated that way it is your opinion and it is also not reality based upon the absolute definition of market value. It is your right to believe in something that is in all actuality false, as illogical as that may be.

Jesus. Not again. Are you seriously going to start this again? Bashing people's opinions and telling them how illogical and stupid they are compared to you? Good hell. I've got a headache.

Of the millions of things that I choose to believe or not belief a football players salary hasn't even crossed my mind. I have other things to do besides forming opinions on how much money someone should make.

Dunno why anyone gives him the time of day. He's just a crotchety old fella who gets his jollies by trolling anyone and everyone he disagrees with. Save yourself some time and ignore him. He'll never admit or acknowledge that he's wrong for his behavior, and he'll certainly never respect anyone else's opinion.

He will, of course, disagree with all of this.

But this site is for Saints football and salaries are part of that.

No. Not starting again, I haven't stopped. I just finally got fed up with the uneducated bullcrap that a few of you are spreading concerning Brees, contracts and the Saints cap. I understand the truth is hard to take especially when it makes some of you feel so good bashing the greatest player in Saints history based upon totally false drivel. And, no, I not calling anyone illogical or stupid compared to me. I am calling them illogical with stupid arguments compared to any person that is logical and half way intelligent. Is it hitting close to home?
