    Re: PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL

    Just like most things in life. The first person to pull it off is a genius and then it's quickly followed by a bunch of copy-cat wannabes. May the poison pill push be enjoyed by all during its short reign as king of the free agency.

    Re: PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL

    I really see this pills gone before too long. Probably will be a couple more out there first, but I don't see this becoming too big of a problem before it's snubbed out.

    We started it. Good ideas spread quickly.
    Yeah, but as stated elsewhere, our purple pill was directly related to money and his salary, NOT where he played. How's about a player's contract becomes guaranteed if they play for anyother team in any other state except ours, and if they do accept the deal, the agreeing team must give out bj's to every coach and player on the team at each pregame warmup for the next 5 years?

    Re: PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL

    Just thought of a funny scenario...
    What if the Texans had a Cowboys player sign a contract sheet with a poison pill that said they couldn't play more than 5 games in Texas...

    Okay, that really wasn't that funny.
    PM me if you'd like a sig.

    The only thing that would make that funny is if it actually happened & the Texans didn't realize it till it was a done deal....I could ALMOST actually see that happening

    [quote="jhirchak1"]Hooray! Good for the Pats! Seahawks overpay for Nate, now they lose their kicker. Do we play them next year? If we do that should be an interesting grudge match. :banana:[/quote

    Re: PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL

    I'm confused. I though a major part as to why the pill with Hutch was approved by the special master was that the pill itself was the idea of the agent and the player....not the team. These other pills seem to be the idea of the team not the player so should not be allowed?

    please clarify

    i'm not really sure...although even without that "pill" I still wouldn't match the offer. I say contest it anyway, just to make sure no more aholes try and pull this stuff.

    At some point the league, or a judge, is going to have to rule that a particular poison pill is ridiculous and unlawful. The one with Burleson went over that line. Why didn't the Seahawks just flat out build in a poison pill, "if Burleson plays for the Minnesota Vikings his contract is guaranteed"?

    At least the Vikings had some risk involved with Hutchinson's contract. McKinnie will be looking for big bucks in the near future. They will either lose McKinnie, guarantee Hutch's contract, or convince him to re-negotiate.
    If I remember right it was the highest paid olineman in 06. Not much risk there for the viks if they don't intend to resign him now.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2375444

    At issue is a so-called "poison pill" clause that the Vikings included in the contract. It stipulates that Hutchinson must be the highest paid offensive lineman on his team after the first year of the contract and that, if he isn't, the entire contract becomes guaranteed. The provision is a difficult one for the Seahawks, who have the right to match the Minnesota offer, because offensive tackle Walter Jones is the team's highest paid lineman and would be even if Hutchinson were on the Seattle roster.


    I don't know, maybe I read it wrong? Nah, you did.
    Just cause you read it doesn't make it true...

    Clutter reducing sig here...
    Many Viking fans wouldn t know a good thing if it mooned the Pack.
