Let's take this to another place.
I would love to be put in his position... Making tens (hundreds!) of millions of dollars to PLAY A GAME. Let's be real people, these guys are being paid millions of dollars to play a game to ENTERTAIN us. They are entertainers and entertainers are earning a huge chunk of money in our society... That's messed up.
My whole life I will most likely not even see 2 million dollars total and I believe my contribution to society, positively affecting kids' lives and futures, is more important than an athlete playing a game, and I believe I should be rewarded as such. So, with that said, your point is all a matter of perspective. As much as I like watching Drew PLAY, I don't think he OR ANY OTHER ATHELETE is worth that kind of money to PLAY A GAME.
The Saints are who they are today more because of SPayton than DBrees. Drew's good, but he's got those stats mostly because of the system he's in. The system is a lot bigger and more important than people realize.
Riddle me this.. Would Drew Brees really have become Drew Brees in Miami??
You're lucky to be in the position you're in.. Take the money and run Drew.
