People who criticize a man for making a joke on Twitter need to get off Twitter and/or this site for a month. You are too angry to be able to enjoy things

My other favorite is the dictator head coach that everyone loves, but they'd HATE that dude if that were their boss.

I am talking about the "The Jimmy Graham Rule". I don't hear him saying it was a MISTAKE to dislodge the goal posts. That is no small thing. Teams may win or lose but one thing they count on is a fair shake, that means everyone is treated the same on Field Goals, extra points, whatever.

Let's compare how he has handled his life so far to yours. His is all out in the open.

He gives a lot of his time to good causes as well, but hey he made a joke on Twitter.

The guy made himself something and from a harsh environment. He's never been in any trouble and is a classy individual by all accounts. I'm sure you know more about him than Sean Payton and brees

He was an actual student athlete, getting 2 degrees from a very good university (marketing and management).

I think he is the definition of a role model for kids who grow up in bad situations. He worked his arse off in the classroom and on the field despite being abandoned and placed into group homes

To be fair, if they move the kickoffs to the 40 like they are proposing, I have full confidence in Morestead kicking off from the 25 everytime.

re: Jimmy Graham's Response


So how is he not a role model?

Are you even aware of his life story? Payton and Brees go above and beyond to speak highly of him

But hey, he made a joke on Twitter and wants to be payed. I can think of few people that have earned it more than him

No I didn't. You made an incorrect statement exaggerated to fit your own ends.

As long as those kids are 6ft8 freak athletes with natural talent.

Professional athletes are not role models.

Except that he excelled in the classroom as well

And kids look up to athletes probably more than anyone else outside their parents

still avoiding my point, again, not a sign of a good poster.

Sounds like you're boxed in and have no answer so you're doing whatever you can to not reply to my point. Twice now.

Feel free to respond to my actual point anytime now.

What was your actual point? That people have unrealistic expectations or wants about a guy negotiating between 9million and 14 million dollars a year? Both numbers are so far out of reach by the average person that you might as say a gillion or a badillion dollars.

And as I've said ad nauseum on this board he doesn't deserve top wr money and he deserves the tag price but basically nothing more.

And yes if I spent 2/3 of my job doing one task but I wasn't as good at it as the other guys doing that it would be unreasonable to request the same salary as those people outperforming me

and if you knew you had a chance to still get that that salary, you'd turn it down out of the goodness of your heart?

OK
