I was reading an article about Terrell Owens. He was saying that his base salary of 4.2 million is not enough. He feels he is underpaid.

The 49er's wanted to extend his contract but he wants a signing bonus of around 20 MILLION!! Is he worth that kind of money?

if your giving lts 12 and 15 mill i guess its not to far fetched moss pulled some coin 2 yrs ago, youd think sf would be wary because of previous cap hell or jail as clump whould say.

20 million? Shoot no he's not worth that kind of money!! I see he and his agent is doing the Orlando pace thing with the 20-25 million signing bonus demands.

Hey, it is good that you posted this info in case Miami fans feel we should sign him if the 49ers can't sign him so it can give them an idea of how much money he is looking for.

It's not that football players are getting underpaid, it's all other sports are RIDICULOUSLY overpaid.

Baseball is the worst.

I'm so glad that for the most part our weekend worriors are not prima-donnas.

Owens is old too. This'll be his eighth year in the league and he's turning 30 in December. He is still putting up amazing numbers, but it's nothing but downhill from last season.

I hate baseball and so do most people i know. Why are they paid the most? It makes no sense to me. Not only that but they take the least amount of physical punishment on their bodies. An occasional play at the plate is about exciting as it gets. Football players get hit every play. But they pay Gay-Rod 250 million dollars to stand their and look pretty. Ridiculous!

Yeah jasmine34, if you post a football question that doesn't have to do with Miami , we won't have room for the 135 griese posts we all are so anxious to read. What were you thinking?

Baseball..ugh..

Hate it with a passion.
They literally do NOTHING 90% of the time they're on the field.

Ball comes your way, sure..move and go get it.

Other then that you sit out there and look at the stadium.

Yeah, Jasmine you know you gotta keep the board free from clutter so that we can read posts where females get asked how "hot" they are. Maybe that has something to do with with the Dolphins. :confused:

In general, no athlete in any sport is worth the money he or she makes when you look at the bigger picture. Their salaries compared to teachers, policemen, doctors, etc, but they get paid as much as they do because fans continue to watch and support the players.

Regarding how much Owens is worth, he's worth as muh as his owner feels he's worth. Not too many people feel Alex Rodriguez is worth 252 million dollars for 10 years but the Texas Rangers owner felt he was so he got paid the money.

I gotta echo the sentiment on page one. TO can demand all he wants. As long as there's a hard cap in place, he'll never get what he feels he's worth.

Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey players don't want anypart of the NFL's cap. And that's why their player associations fight against it tooth and nail. Meanwhile, the NFL remains the most competitive and most popular sport in America.

For those of you that think you can run the board better, feel free to leave your suggestions in the proper forum, we will take all comments or criticisms and mull them over carefully...other than that please let the mods and mentors run the boards w/out your help.....If I asked that this not be in the Dolphins forum then it doesn't belong here.....If it was concerning the Dolphins then it would be allowed here....What's not to understand?...MsAmanda, if your comment was directed at me specifically then you are definately barking up the wrong tree.....I was the one responsible for bringing that thread to the attention of the staff and in turn getting it at least moved to the lounge.....If you had a problem with that thread at the time then you should have let somebody know because the only reason we let it go on was that no one seemed to be getting offended by it....If we don't know there is a problem, we can't fix it.

Keep in mind when comparing player salaries that football is an 11 on 11 sport, and rosters have 53 men each roster. Thats a whole lot of players to share the pie. Baseball does not have that many people on the roster, basketball doesn't have close to that number, and I'd imagine neither does Hockey.

In an 11 on 11 sport even the superstars can't affect the games or bring the fans as much as a basketball superstar can, not so sure about baseball.

All I meant was that the ladies do get the "meat" treatment from the guys every now and then. Didn't mean anything else by it. :)

Owens is worth a hell of a lot more than 5 mil a year and he knows it. The only reason he only gets that amount is b/c of salary restrictions placed on the nfl by the owners via the salary cap.

If the NFL didnt have it Owens would get far more than 250 mil for his services. Just look at what the European football stars make.
