    They have a skill that other people pay to see them use. Good for them.

    No hate. Learn to recognize sarcasm. Don't hate them anymore than anyone who wins the lottery and most players just won the genetic lottery.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Oh I picked up on it plenty well. You were being sarcastic in defending their lifestyle. That equals hating on them buddy.

    It's an interesting version of sarcasm really. A passive-aggressive sort that just comes off as bitter.

    genetic lottery? No... you still have to produce, shake the right hands and make the right moves to get to the NFL. I've seen tons of talent fall by the waste side because kids didn't understand the "game" before and after the game.

    Can't fool you. You truly understand the inner workings of my mind and my deepest thoughts Got me.

    Don't mistake the fact I don't worship these guys as hate because I don't. I love the sport and the entertainment it provides. They entertain me just like a movie actor does.

    Exactly. These guys have a skill set that people want to see. That skill set pays a lot of money. If they want to make as much as they can with said skill set why would anyone be upset with that? I will never understand the hate.

    So let me ask the question; Wallace holds out for 10% more, .. can the Steelers dock his pay 10% if he fails to produce ? ... seems the team takes a lot more risk than the players in these high dollar/guaranteed contracts. I am sure glad the Steelers have some sense about how to manage their cap and talent.
