    You are thinking with emotion instead of logic. Money in the owner pockets go back into the product. Money going into the players pocket doesn't go back into the product. The product is football. Players making less money doesn't affect the product on the field. 78% of NFL players go broke after their career end. A complete waste of money. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/1-in-6-nfl-players-go-bankrupt/

    This is why you get a Greg Roman type of coach and don't pay stupid contracts to QBs.

    so when LJ comes due to get paid they cut him LMAO...if he wins MVP and goes deep in the playoffs in his second season roman will be all but forgotten and like all players that have had star power the Ravens will Pay , ie like they did with their last qb who wasn't much better then Dak..

    Flacco was an above average qb at best and broke the bank , one great season they paid , he had great coach, great defense, etc etc they still paid him and they will pay Jackson, your point is flawed...

    so Far guys like Carr, goof, wentz, and Garppolo got huge dals and they are all in a similar tier as dak..

    Not sure you've been paying attention but many qbs on daks level ie maybe above average and thats it, got paid huge$$$....

    so dont claim we are the franchise to start this wen its been happening..

    Don't care. Pay him. It doesn't matter until we get a coach.

    First, the article you cite says 16% not 78% which is a drastically different number.

    Second its a lie to say they put all the profits back into the product. An NFL is like every other business and while some money is put back into the product the profits of companies, depending on the company, are either paid out to those who own the company or, in simple terms, put in a pool of funds to be used later. As their is no point to have said pool with the structure of an NFL team it is likely just paid directly to the owner to do with as they see fit. They may put some back into the product, but at the end of the day they are taking home more money, that is not going back into the team, than any NFL player possibly earns for far less work.

    Third, I do not view the player as nothing more than a tool of my entertainment. I view them as a person. A person who is choosing to shed decades off their lives, destroy their bodies after football, ensure they completely miss anything to do with their families, and whose career could end at any moment. Asking me to take the side of those making no sacrifice for my entertainment instead of those who are seems would require a level of heartlessness that I simply do not possess. I generally do not dislike the owners, but I think they make far more than enough already and if I have to choose between ownership and players I will almost always choose players.
