Players get the worst advice, I swear. He has no leverage. Did he not see Kam's holdout ? Literally did nothing but cost him money. You want more money? Then go work your butt off and make yourself someone they can't imagine losing.
But it wouldn't be good business to start paying MORE for someone you know any day is going to start regressing. And it certainly doesn't make sense to reward this type of behavior.
Just a dumb, dumb move by Earl.
And speaks again to where this team is at mentally. This time it's worse because apparently Earl's agent had give JS show word there would be no hold out.
So Earl know is going to open the door to younger, healthier guys getting playing time -- while losing money-- AND also making himself untradable. Savvy.
