    Those things are dreadful. You'd have to pay me a lot of money to wear them.

    They are really awful. I bet Hampton is really going to catch a bunch of 'crap' from his teammates about looking like a huge bumblebee.

    Really over the diva antics. Yes I know he has special skills that impact our offense, yes he's Ben's favorite target... But how can you be a part of this team, immersed in the culture of the organization, get first hand 411 regarding the franchise's history regarding contract negotiations and come away with the logic he is now employing. Is he worth more than his 2.7 mill. paycheck this season? Sure he is. But you must be completely clueless to think that these tactics would work. Can't recall one WR diva that went elsewhere for greener (greenbacks) pastures and attained any true success (maybe Plaxico's handful of playoff catches with the G-men....but nothing sustained that would you would label better). Just can't fathom the idiocy of HOW he's choosing to handle things....like walking into an Apple Store asking for I.T. questions on Microsoft products.....just dumb.

    Wallace is in a tough position, through his own doing. If he signs the tender and shows up now, it's going to be hard for him to save face. I think he'll show closer to the end of the preseason and play in perhaps the last preseason game. Ultimately, if he wants to get paid, he needs a big year, and sitting out and lacking familiarity with the offense is to his detriment.

    I'm less optimistic that he signs long term. I would not give him $10/million per year that he wants because, unlike Vincent and DeSean Jackson, he is not facing a franchise tag or UFA. The Steelers can control him both this year and next under the tag. He and his agent need to account for that.
    I guess PhillyEsq was the winner of this contest...nice work!
