Well, what a surprise. A greedy professional athlete. Number 10 overall pick Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree is threating to hold out the entire season if the San Fransico 49ers don't show him some money. Crabtree, who gave me the most memorable play of the 2008 college football season, wants to get paid like number 7 overall pick Darrius Heyward-Bey got paid by the Oakland Raiders (surprise surprise, the Raiders are screwing up another pay rate). Well, unfortunatley Mr. Crabtree, even though I'm sure you are a better player, you did not get picked before DHB, so you should not get paid like DHB. Plus, are you really going to complain about something like 20 million dollars?? Come on! Sign the contract and get into camp. You have a job to do. And if you do hold out and re-enter the 2010 draft I can guarentee you that you will not be a first round pick, or second, or even third. You will make at least 1/3 of what you would make now. Sign the damn thing.
*By the way, to see the most memorable play of 2008 check out the Youtube video of Crabtree scoring a touchdown in the final seconds of the game versus Texas. That one play changed the landscape of the entire season.
