Posted November 01, 2019 11:10:56As it stands now, I’m still a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles.
I’m still loyal to my team and the city.
But now, there are a few things I’m not a fan about.
The fact that the league is paying players and/or their agents hundreds of thousands of dollars in “bonuses” in order to “help” them land lucrative contracts.
The NFL has been trying to raise its profile and appeal to the millennial generation for a while now.
The NFL has a “pay-to-play” system in place, in which the league pays players their guaranteed salaries in exchange for their “service.”
Players can make millions off of the league’s games, but only by paying the league to broadcast them.
There is a loophole that allows the league and its players to get away with blatantly illegal practices, like using performance-enhancing drugs and/ or engaging in other illegal activities, like cheating on the NFL’s drug tests.
It’s also possible to play “free agency” without signing a contract with the NFL.
Players who earn money on the field can make tens of millions of dollars off of their endorsements.
There’s also the matter of the players’ “contracts,” which are typically written by agents and sometimes are written by the players themselves.
Players have no control over their contract numbers or the way they are compensated.
There are no rules on what is considered “paid” or “free” on the books of the NFL, and the league can legally change the contract at any time.
Players are not paid the same way as other athletes.
The league can even be sued for not paying them the same as other employees.
So, what are the other problems?
The league has been a big money-making machine for the past decade, and now it’s getting slammed for its practices and pay to play.
There are no new rules on how to handle player welfare, and players who don’t have any are paid a “base salary” or are subject to the “base rate” that goes along with the base salary.
Players can make “bonus money” by signing lucrative contracts for games, endorsements, etc. They also can receive money if they play in a game or appear on the sideline.
“Free agency” means players are free to sign whatever deal they want.
And there is a rule that allows teams to “opt-out” of contracts and players can sign contracts for as long as they want, as long they have not received a salary in excess of what they are entitled to under the collective bargaining agreement.
For instance, a player might be entitled to an average of $1.5 million per season, but they can sign an “opt out” deal and receive nothing.
Another example: a player could be entitled $1 million per year and a team could sign a five-year deal with a $1,000,000 signing bonus.
That could result in a player getting paid $600,000 per season.
While a player has “options,” which can include having the team pay a portion of their salary to the league in order for them to play in certain games, it’s still up to the player to decide whether or not to opt out.
Some players have made it known they would rather play for a “free agent” league like the NFL or the NBA, which would be much more financially beneficial to them.
If you’ve ever been to a game, you know how much it costs to get into the game, so what do you think the best way to make money off of football is?
There’s an online “amc” site that can track and analyze the stats of players who play in NFL games.
