But he is so far superior than so many others. I think he deserves it. And I wasn't a Romo fan when he played.

I don't really like them and I don't know them.

I donít think Mike meant he ainít deserve. I think heís saying NFL players should be making more in general, but Iím sure theyíll ask him to elaborate on it soon.

Re: Michael Thomas cites new Tony Romo deal in opposition to CBA

I just heard that Nick Solder, an NFL team rep, asked fifteen players on his team's roster if they would be willing to play a 17th game in exchange for the added benefits and pay provided for in the proposed CBA and they all said that they would. This is pretty much the vibe I'm getting from around the league. The vocal minority that are speaking in opposition are just that ... a minority. Solder said that while the deal isn't perfect it is much better than what they had and there is no guarantee that if the deal was rejected that another would be any better and it could very possibly be worse.

17-2 Baby!

I also read that Michael Thomas admittedly had not kept up with any of the negotiations the PA and the league have been having over the past ten months and his comments, and those of other players who have not been involved, are making those players that have been involved even more determined to get the deal approved.

In the land of economics many need to learn about supply and demand. Tony Romo is by far the best at what he does, in a much more scarce profession.

And movie stars get paid more for acting like soldiers that real soldiers do. Tony will work for CBS to talk about football. Thomas works for the Saints to play football. CBS isn't taking Thomas' money to pay Romo. Thomas needs to learn when to keep his opinion to himself. A quote that has been applied to a number of people seems to apply here..."Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt."

I’m here to beat on this dead horse.

Mike, c’mon man. Don’t be a dumba**.

One injury away from turning in applications like the rest of us.
