    The guy who gave Arod the $250 mil contract was Tom Hicks of the Rangers who apparently bid vs. himself when he signed Arod to that contract.. I think the amount of yearly salary that George is responsible for is $15 mil per. Based on what others of equal ability are paid George is getting a fair deal.

    And if George wasn't giving the money to the players, it would just stay in his pocket. Who says he is more deserving than the players??

    I agree and also disagree. What professional player is worth 250M USD? Sure, A-Rod hits homers and looks good on GQ, but not enough to raise my gate fare by "x" in proportion to his salary.

    Blame it on a local guy - Curt Flood!

    And I'll add that I am all for these guys getting whatever they can in the way of salaries. Pro sports is entertainment. There is a boatload of money in entertainment and the performers deserve the lion's share.

    That makes more sense. So that is equivalent to 7 million adjusted for inflation, approximatly. Compared to their current (2003) payroll of 70 million.
    Sports salaries from 1972 vs. 2003 = apples vs. oranges.

    Which team are you talking about here?
    I was thinking the college football team, but I don't think they are undefeated and $1.5 mil seems a little light . . . :lol:
