Okay, first I have to thank those for the nice, unsolicited comments about teaching...honestly, I don't do it as a sacrifice...I do it because I was born to do it and lucky enough to find the thing I was born to do.
Secondly, some of you guys are hilarious.
However, I never intended this post to have anything to do with the woes of teaching salaries or to bemoan my skinny legs...lmao. I guess I'm naive, but even though I assume many of you make more money than I do, I simply thought we'd all look at what a 7th rounder just signed for and start calculating how long it would take all of us to match his 1 year salary, not to mention if he actually cuts the mustard and gets to fulfill the rest of his contract.
I saw today where the SAints and Miami gave up 11 draft picks and 4 first rounders for Ricky Williams....lol. I don't know what his real motivations were, but I find it amusing that he has pocketed enough cash to live on for the rest of his life and has walked away on his own terms. Teams get supplimental draft picks when they lose players to other teams in free agency...as more and more players go the routes of Barry Sanders, Robert Smith, and now Ricky Williams, can some sort of league compensation for their teams be far behind?
