I disagree with a lot of the aricle myself, but there does seem to be a worrying trend with superstar players taking a hard line, perhaps even being greedy, as regards contracts. CJ2K being the obvious example.

I'm not floating conspiracy theories here, but it does seem that Brees played out of his skin in a contract season and now he's got a lot of that money in the bank, his performance has dropped. I've only seen two games this year because of the blackouts, but he hasn't seemed as angry at himself for screwing up as he was last year. I'm starting to think he's decided it's not going to be a Super Bowl season, and now all he's interested in is breaking another record and taking another bow. I'm prepared to eat these words in another 4 weeks if he's totally turned around, but somehow I doubt I'll be needing to...
