    Bowe signed an extension of 5 for 56 million. Anyone still think Wallace doesn't get Vjax money?
    Here comes the BOOM!

    That's a crazy contract for Bowe. If Wallace is able to use that as the benchmark, he could easily get $10-12 million per season.

    Ridiculous. They really need to lower ticket prices. You figure the money is there for these guys to get these crazy contracts so it either goes to the players or the owners, but they need to cut ticket prices so it stays with the fans.

    I don't think the ticket prices have too much of an impact. I thought that most of the money came from TV advertising.

    The ticket prices have an inverse relationship. The ticket prices are just icing on the cake for the Owners. I believe the ticket sales stay with the team, but the television deals have to be split among the teams in a revenue split.

    Doesn't matter. Bottom line is the money is there that they could drop the cost of tickets.

    BTW, as for the original topic. Im not surprised Bowe cashed in, and I wont be surprised when Wallace cashes in either. I also wont be surprised if Wallace is out of the league in 3 years.

    Most rich owners are greedy sons of biotches. They only want things to go one way: They get richer and F everyone else. They will continue to go that way until fans stop showing up. Only then will they agree to lower ticket prices. The Jags never bothered to fix their defunct drinking fountains but would gladly sell you $5 bottles of water in the oppressive heat. Why would Weaver care; he was making tons of money on selling bottled water. THAT is the mentality of NFL owners.

    Well, this thread got derailed quick.

    Wallace will get paid. Other teams will value what he brings more than the Steelers.

    Yet to be determined who is making the right decision, but unlike popular belief, Chadman is not convinced the Steelers got it right.
