This isn't about drug addiction, it's about stupidity and Tyrann has a bad case of it.

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

I would do the sme thing as 90% of you would too. Gotta look out for yourself because nobody else will

no, 90% of us would have a realistic perception of our situation and realize not only that we have absolutely no leverage, but the best thing for us is to be in the team with all the safety nets and watchdogs they would provide, because sitting on our couch for a year doing nothing is going to give us a lot of free time to get high.
Jesus, did you really have to explain that to him?

Ahhhh....nevamind.

"The idea that Mathieu has to accept a substandard contract on top of that is, in fact, ridiculous.

No, it's not, in fact, ridiculous.

yea, actually, in fact it is. they took him with the 69yh pick for a reazon. he has huge boom or bust potential. if youre the cards youre not allowed to just say "we want all the rewards without taking any of the risk." thats not how things work.

Fight over nothing?  He will get a contract in between the two extremes, some guaranteed money but also with "Wright" clauses.

guys with "absolutely no leverage"  dont get drafted in round 2. the fact that he got drafted in round 2 means he DOES have leverage. it means he was wanted by other teams, because if not he woukdn have got drafted so high. his leverage is also tied in his potential to be a stud DB for the cards. he clearly has leverage when it comes to getting guaranteed money. the cards are clearly in the wrong and he WILL get guaranteed money

If released would another team pick him up and pay him guaranteed money?

He has leverage

he cant be picked up. if i am not mistaken he would simply go back into the draft next season if they dont sign him to a contract

That would be even dumber for him. Career suicide. Hes just trying to max out his deal. It also makes him look like its all about the money. Doesnt show me much confidence in himself. If he knew what he was capable of he would take the deal hes worth for 3rd round money and prove himself. I guess he wants to guarantee he gets paid in case he doesnt make it to the next level.

This demand might have more to do with Tyrann's agent than with Tyrann himself.  At the end of the day agents want to get paid, and 10% of nothing is nothing.  He knows Tyrann can't stay clean.

didnt J. jenkins go through the same thing with the rams last season. I remember there being a contact issue with him for a while.

Why not pay him the requisite signing bonus & guarantee him money for injuries, but put a 'morality' clause in there that would require him  to repay the signing bonus if he gets suspended for drug use during the pendency of the contract?   That way he has protection in the event he gets hurt (as his agent, I wouldn't let him sign a contract that didn't...not at 5 '8'/160 something and playing safety & kick returner)....but he has to make a commitment to lay off the weed.   If he's not willing to make that commitment, it's one heck of a bad draft choice.

Calling people with drug addictions scum bags. Thanks Red Board. A little faith in humanity was lost today. Sick people are scumbags.

Pot is not an addiction.  Meth is.  Coke is.  Crack is.  Heroin is.  Hell, even alcohol and tobacco are addictions.  But nobody gets withdrawals trying to escape from the demon weed.  The guy's problem isn't a physical addiction.

Someone close to me did. She couldn't function without pot. She did get withdrawals. It ruled her life and was one of the saddest things I witnessed firsthand.

Bob Saget sucks d*ck for coke and we're supposed to feel sorry for Tyrann? Boo this man!

If someone turns tricks for drugs I'm definitely going to feel sympathy for them because I'm not a robot.
