Report: Colts, Andrew Luck hung up on contract over marketing opportunities - CBSSports.com






..and NO, I don't believe Jim Irsay's tweets denying this. You'd think the owners would just sign the ****ing contract once they were absolved from having to pay these huge sums of money to rookies. Now that they got that, they want MORE. They are going to run this game into the ground.
what kind of say do owners and the league have with any player endorsements and marketing?

whatever they can negotiate into the player's contract. Luck has good representation, he won't sign with that language in the deal.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Not sure if it matters for Luck -- doesn't look like he has much personality anyway. No matter how much Luck wins, I'd bet RG3 makes 10 times as much in endorsements. Kind of like Brady / Manning. Brady has played in more Super Bowls, but Manning has been in more Super Bowl commercials.

Personality:
RG3 >> Luck
P.Manning >> Brady

Glad he got help.

He came from a WAC conference that didn't have many good defenses. Although his stats were off the charts, it's the lack of competition that he faced that contributed to his success in college. In those regards, Brennan is similar to Case Keenum.

NFL -- Donovan McNabb says chances of return 80-90 percent - ESPN

Quote:
Quarterback Donovan McNabb says there's "an 80 to 90 percent chance" he'll play this season.

"I do want to play," McNabb told "NBC SportsTalk" on Thursday. "The most important thing is I have about three teams I'm looking at. ... We won't name those three teams."

I say there is a 99.99999% chance he doesn't end up on a NFL team. Why won't this asshat just go away? I'd rather hear Favre drama than him.
