Brian Urlacher is holding out from mini camp, because he's unhappy with his contract. With the price of gas, groceries and everything else neccessary to live it's hard to understand his position. He signed a contract and agreed to play for a certain amount of years for a certain amount of money. These players who hold out infuriate me. When most families can't take their children to a professional game or buy them jersey's of their favorite players, you have athletes holding refusing to play for a sum of money most of us will never see in our life time. Professional sports is getting ruined by greed like many things.

How much money do these guys need to make? I'm sure they make more than enough to support their needs and families. I'd say him and all the people in professional sports make more than enough and it's not like they're making very little money. Now if they're blowing their money that's another story and their own fault for doing so.
