[QUOTE]In Response to Re: If you were offerred 9.5 MILLION dollars for one year of work.......???? : you guys dont get it...WW is not complaining about anything, just using his legal rights in a negotiation for his salary, just like the (cheap) pats are using theirs...goes on all the time and it's not "complaining" it's business as for ur rather naive opines about how much WW earns and being "satisfied" this is, as said, extremely naive as well as misguided . Comparing what a pro athlete earns compared to people working "regular" jobs is a severe case of apples and oranges. It isn't to be compared with what John Q Working Man earns but what he earns compared to comparable talents in his profession-no different than any other person who has a skill and wants the going rate or a raise if he feels it is earned, be it laborer, doctor, accoutant or anyone else. What, an accountant making $100,000 shouldn't ask for $125,000 because joe the garbage man only makes $30,000? In what world does this apply, cause it certainly ain't this one. what our rabid overwrought and angry friend masked avenger and many of u dont get is that-hard as it is to hear this-you are a nobody compared to WW in both the eyes of society and certainly his bosses. the talent that a WW possesses is shared by what? 1% of the popultion? 2%? how many actually make it in pro sports, much less become all-pros? precious few. sorry to break it to you but anyone can get a "regular" job, be it lawer, painter, accountant, carpenter..thats why there are millions of them. what a WW, etc...do commands the money he is paid-and more if he decides he is worth it-because so few can do it and-here's the real part that exposes the average fan/masked avenger type's naivety: in our capitalist society you are not paid for your importanceor necesssity to society but for your ability to generate capital-and the more u generate the more u are worth. sorry, folks, but most people dont give a damn about ur jobs and therefore are not paying top dollar to watch you work-like WW-they dont buy a jersey with your name on it-like WW-they don't buy goodies and food and pay for parking etc to see you work-like they do WW...ie: he generates massive amounts of money for his employers; more on one sunday than all of the "working class heroes" like our misguided angry masked avenger do in months, maybe a full working year. if you dont like it, dont blame WW, etc...especially in such an obvious, whiny and naive way like Masked Avenger-blame the system in place. oh, and stop being a pats/football fan, dont watch, dont buy any paraphenalia, dont go to the games, dont park ur car, dont buy hotdogs and beer and then-and only then-will any of your miisguided venom have any validity.

Im not sure what it is you're trying to say,
but if we can define the objective ever further, Wes Welker is really worth nothing more than the so called 90% are willing to pay to be entertained.
Welker is only as special as what Brady and Belichick and the Patriot system have made him out to be, on any other team he was mediorce at best.
As for your statement, "So few can do it", that is very far from the truth.
There are thousands that play football that can and do. Again, if not for Belichicks system and Brady throwing to him his name is common place.
One other thought of employment conjecture.
No one, and I mean NO one has to settle for either minium wage, or low wage earnings in this day and age.
I hear and read it so often that everyone is restrained due to the markets of employment as to what they are being paid and they have no alternative.
If any of you out here had 15k to invest, I could take you and within 3 months triple your investment, with you doing the work. No not stocks, not investments, but honest simple actual work that you would enjoy and be amazed at how simple it really is.
Unfortunately we are all taught the old slave-way method of employment, where you serve your employer and do your specific duties for moderate pay then go home.
Anyway Im off track here....
