    It would be awful for Scherff to say publicly he wanted a trade if thats the case.  Could you imagine?  A second pro bowler saying they didn’t want to be here.

    Pro bowls don’t mean anything to me. 1/3 of the voting are fans. More of a popularity contest imo.

    I don’t know if the Estate Tax came before or after JKC’s death (you really should be cursing Ted Kennedy for this), but you can’t just will a team. John KC would have had to pay a HUGE tax on the difference between what his dad paid for the team and the value at that time. I think 28%... ? If you can’t afford that, that’s when outside investors (or even a group led by him) can come in and take it.

    The tax on the team would have been almost 50%. And some one wishing that JKC is in hell is downright pathetic.

    Well, I don't know for sure that it's "right" but I'm closer to not giving an already-well-paid-but-declining player more money than I am giving him a raise. He's made some good money, so it's incumbent on the team to pay him for what they believe they'll get out of him from here on out, not reward him (more) for what he's already accomplished. 

    Thanks for the reply. In my opinion, if it’s the money, I’d consider making his last two years guaranteed money. Also draft his replacement next year. Anything else trade if possible.

    He was not. All players can get a second, third or more opinions, and often do. Any report that says he was limited to Redskins doctors is false. 

     

    Now he may have trusted them and decided not to seek outside opinions and now wished he had. But players cannot be stopped from seeing their own doctors. 

    Thanks, but I knew that. Was replying to a previous post. 😀

    You know what I love about this thread?...I can remove myself from it for weeks on end, and when I return not one single fact has been added to the discussion lol...there's no catching up to do. It's like I never left.

    Nothing but posters stating conjecture

    No extension is a bit too absolute. It depends on what he wants. Say what he wants is the next two years guaranteed and then the team wants to ad two more yrs not guaranteed to keep control of his rights then that would be fine. If he is looking for what amounts to the next 3 to 5 yrs guaranteed then I agree, Have to let him go. And by let him go, I mean call his bluff and see if he sits out for two yrs not playing and not getting paid. Or once he gets to camp try to trade him. Or try to trade him next off-season. 

     

     

    This I believe could be exactly what Trent wants, of course all speculative on my part. The next two years guaranteed. I believe he may retire after the 2 years are over, and the possibility of a work stoppage with the contract talks possible coming, I wouldn’t mind giving him this guarantee.
