No, he is talking about how people like Revis for example get called selfish because they hold out on cheap deals. But teams do the same thing to under performing players and don't get called selfish ( Smith, Vilma)

what are you talking about?

He's saying that there is a double standard that its ok for teams to cut players, but that when players over-perform, people usually call them selfish if they hold out for more money.

First, if he *was* talking about Drew, its being supportive of Drew. Second, he's not talking about Drew.

I think you're reading it wrong... to me it looks like he's saying that its nonsense to call a player selfish when they hold-out because they out-performed their contract.

But it's OK to ask players to take a pay cut.

Looks like he's putting the organization on blast.

Maybe I'm wrong... :shrug:

Sounds to me like he is just pointing out the double-standard of how it is considered okay for teams to ask players who underperform to take pay cuts, while it is considered greedy for players who overperform to hold out.

I don't see a problem here.

Most holdouts get resolved anyhow.

Player only has leverage if he's near or at the end of his deal.
