Who else wishes Jagr still had that mullet in the selfie?
Hey, remember when you had to get pictures developed and you didn't know what they looked like until you got them back and your deadline for the trading card submission was in like 7 minutes? Those were wild times.
I am not bitter at all that these guys are making this kind of money. I am just not going to feel empathy for a player because his last contract was 10 million over 4 years and not 12.5 million over 4 years.
I don't think they're asking for your empathy, they're just being interviewed.
He said he expected a contract to be done by now, but teams are'nt offering as much, and he needs a good opportunity to get an extension. The guy should take what he can get and be happy. He'll still make more in a season than alot of people will in a lifetime. I just hate hearing pro athletes complain about money. He's saying he did'nt take the opportunity to "cash in" when he could have. He made plenty of money either way. How many millions does one guy need?
He didn't say he "needed" anything. He's just comparing the situations and how a third liner with most teams up against the cap are no longer a commodity.
You must be upset at every NHLer because they all negotiate for more money than they need.
As far as complaining about it, it's an interview! It's not like he's spouting off on his blog. This is how journalism works, the reporter asks a series of questions and writes up a summary sans questions. He is literally just describing a situation about his employment based on questions asked to him, I don't understand why people are criticizing him.
