    Big salaries, hard feelings

    Big salaries, hard feelings
    By Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports
    March 5, 2007

    Three days of free agency, and the NFL's salary structure has already been laid to waste...

    Looking at it from that perspective, the Vikings are doing it right by not going out and overpaying marginal talent in the FA.

    Yeah, I was just looking at all the signings and thinking about it.
    There is some serious overpaying going on and there are a bunch of guys that aren't worth all that much coin floating around.
    It's all about how they fit into the system and the current roster though, one guy may have little street value with the Walrus and a lot with Chilly.
    It all depends.

    Free Agency Littered With Dissappointments
    The opening forays of the free-agent signing period this weekend produced some mind-boggling dollar figures, again demonstrating the lack of fiscal responsibility which traditionally exists at this time of year.

    Out of all the offseasons in recent memory, this one is probably the best to not be overly active in FA.
    Good article.

    If it's someone you need go get them! Don't cheat yourself but spend wisely. Not spending to brag your NOT spending is just as bad.

    You pay when it makes CENTS.

    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

    *sarcasm on* Like you don't know how to turn yor sarcasm on and off.....

    See it's easy, when you want a person to know that you are trying to be an ass in your rebuttal you just slip this little number in ..*sarcasm on* or *sarcasm off* just to highlight your point. I just wanted to clarify since people think I am always sarcastic, but thanks for pointing that out.... ;D
