In the time I am spending writing this article, some miraculous things will happen. Let’s see, thus far I have spent 1 minute writing this article. If that one minute took place during an Oakland Raiders football game, JaMarcus Russell would have made $21,333.33 at a minimum. I just spent three minutes calculating that total, so now we are up to four minutes on this article. Four minutes. Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones is worth $1.4 Billion, up from $1.25 billion the year before, which means he earned $150,000,000 last year. There are 525,948 minutes in a year. Jerry Jones has earned just under $2,000 since I started writing this article seven minutes ago.
What I’m saying is, let’s please get this worked out. If I was at my job while writing this article, “on the clock” or whatever, I would have made right around $6 so far.
And I don’t mean to complain. Well, I suppose I do. But you owe it to the fans to prove why we owe it to ourselves to owe you $90/game to watch you hit each other and fight over a piece of leather you are trying to move from one imaginary line to another.
I don’t know the details, I don’t know who I side with (though I’d imagine on the side of the players that don’t want to prolong an already injury-ridden season), but I do know that it’d be a shame and a waste to drop a season over a flexing contest.
Short post, small rant, I apologize to everyone but Roger.
