Lets clear one thing up....hs told him to skip a "voluntary MINI Camp" not training camp. If a player is under contract, he'll be at Training camp.

Now. I dont like the direction where these contract negoiations are heading, in which it doesnt matter how much longer you are signed for. However, I think Santana signed a reasonable deal in a reasonable amount of time. He didnt miss a whole lot. It is May after all and he is in camp and "is ready to get to work"....

The problem, Schneed - is often the Postons make teams get every little thing for the player. Let's look at the Postons and the outragious contracts they get, Winslow, Pace, Arrington -- It can go on forever.

Re: It's getting worse...Merriman and the Postons

BULL HOCKEY!!!! Some of you don't get it. If he shows up to camp and gets hurt, they don't just drop him off at the bus station. When rookies without contracts check in they sign a boilerplate contact that says if they get hurt, they will still get money equivalent to their postion. If Merriman gets hurt, he gets money between what the 11th and 13th pick get. What the Postons want is legal language that says if he gets hurt, THEY CAN SUE for what his earnings may have been for his entire career!!!! In other words, he crashes his motorcycle, he can say that he would have received 3 mil a year for a 15 year career! Gentlemen, this is a big deal because it opens teams up to unlimited lawsuits rather than giving out the contract that he would have received.

Re: It's getting worse...Merriman and the Postons

BTW, Lavar is one of their guys. Don't you think that Lavar might have helped put it in his head that you can get hurt and that you should try to milk as much money out of the situation as possible? Vilma got a 5 yr 10.3 million dollar contract last year. That is approximately what Merriman would get IF he hurt himself in camp. This is more than looking out for yourself.

Re: It's getting worse...Merriman and the Postons

The whole thing with Arrington's contracts makes sense on how they operate. First, his rookie deal had the clause about wanting a higher % of merch sales, so no jerseys to buy. And now the mysterious "missing" $6.5 million bonus in the current one (when it has been reported that there already IS a roster bonus for that amount in 2006). They claim that there should be two of them? These agents just need to go away.

Re: It's getting worse...Merriman and the Postons

I've been reading on espn.com that EVERY SINGLE ONE of Rosenhaus' semi-star players are holding out for new contracts.

I hope not a single team gives in, then he'll have to rethink his bullshit strategy.
