The idea that a QB can be a "bust" after three years is utterly preposterous. Yet we tend to believe what is repeated without relent regardless of how unrealistic it may be.

 

The collusive effort of the NFL, Sportscircle, and local and National media, and washed up, over-rated QBs like, Toomer Esiason, Bich Gannon and Hoe Theisman( Peeve Young had the best receivers in the game)all proves this agenda as fact and not merely conjecture in regards to the assassination of one JaMarcus Russell. And for one, Im not mad. Good Play.

 

This agenda serves a great purpose for both the Oakland Raiders and NFL sl, owners as it all but guarantees a rookie salary cap with JaMarcus' lazy body hanging from that cross.

 

I personally could give a sh*t about how much money the next man's making, but hey, that's just me. Especially when that man can survive in the Gauntlet called the NFL, where at any given moment he can have both his knees Gradkoski'd or McCallum'd. Ouch. Still. Its entertainment to me.

 

I mean still, the NFL pie is a HUGE pie. With ice cream on top. I don't see why everybody gets all mad when the brotha gets his slice. But maybe its because they're staring at their plate of liverworst while watching sportscircle for the thousandth time. What a bust.

 

As a Raider supporter(hardly fanatic) I can see the good in the demise of "JaLardass" as it relates to the Raiders. All of a sudden, after 7 well documented years of feeble futility, the Oakland Raiders have been redeemed. Nice deal, Al. We almost forgot about Javon Walker, Chaz Schilens, the wack ass O-line and countless other questionable moves.

 

As for the NFL, well the article title says it all; Players will have to play for less now in this struggling 10 Billion dollar industry.
