    I give those guys all the credit in the world, but I just don't get it. Can't the league stand to at least pay these guys $20k a year? I understand that their not in the greatest financial situation but given a max of 6 guys per team that's only $120k more in losses a year (not counting taxes, and insurance).

    My point all along is that these developmental players should be making at least minimum wage, which they aren't at the moment.

    "If that $212.50 were based on a 40-hour week it would be $5.31 per hour. The federal minimum wage is $5.15 per hour. A convenience store employee who works at $7 per hour would gross $280 for a 40-hour week. "


    Try again? Reading is fundamental.

    I'm not sure whether they work a 40 hr. week, or more likely a 20 hr. week. Interesting and probably just concidental ( I'm sure it was JUST coincidental) the the story appeared the week after Matteo ( the designated Mais replacement - cut by the Metros ) was thrown to the Lions/Metros. Is there a play it backward type message here?

    Nah, just coincidence......

    Have a great wedding scott - tell your Mom to wear her Angel Flight uniform.
