    Unfortunately. He ain't wrong. The only message that delivers is hitting him where it counts. The wallet. Turn off the tv and stop buying season tix and you'd see how quickly Mikey would listen. That's the worst thing about decent/good to mediocre owners.. they aren't bad enough to hear huge chirps from fed up fans and just good enough to silence em. Lol.

    Listen to what?

    A board with a few regular posters complaining about how much he's willing to pay a future first ballot Hall of Fame member.

    That's hilarious.

    Well, the fans are the reason these players make the money they do. I think they could at least voice some concern about allocation of money if they see it to be excessive... regardless of the players potential hall of Fame status. Also, I doubt that 'just a few' fans/posters feel that way about Larry nowadays.

    Larry will probably be back. You can’t catch what is not thrown to you. And KM missed him a couple of times when he was open. KM hits him and the defense has someone else to worry about. KN is still learning and will get better.

    Sounds like this idea has the makings of a funny Simpson's skit.

    It's a bummer when we have to read opinions of others that we disagree with sometimes eh? ;)

    I don't think it's completely unreasonable when people voice a concern with wanting to allocate money to others areas of a football team trying to move into a new direction while overpaying for old puzzle pieces. If we have Larry next season.. great. If not, great as well. I am of the belief that if we spend on Larry just because we think we owe him something for his time, then that's a mistake. Neither party owes imo.

    And no one, other than you it would seem, suggests that any new contract is for services rendered.

    He can either contribute or he can't, and if the former it's up to both parties to cut a mutually satisfactory deal.

    Never said otherwise. I said...if....

    And is it unreasonable, once again, to think there couldn't be a emotional level for the org to resig him?.. I think its very real and maybe what some others would see as a mistake as well. Just hypotheticals. It's what a message board is for after all...

    :cheers:

    Larry still has the ability to show up in a big game and contribute. Can he do it for a whole season...probably not consistently...but give Larry another playoff game and I bet he still has a little tread on the tires

    Can we pay him a single game salary to be the ghost of 2008 past? :)

    I mean he is almost the same size as Dan Arnold. I just can’t see Fitz blocking 260+ lbs linebackers. We can all get happy about his blocks on cornerbacks but I just can’t see it. Then again I don’t ever remember seeing Dan Arnold lay down a good block all season also. He would be just a passing TE thats for sure if he is move to that position.

    He's lost a step or three. That doesn't diminish the quality of hands, the fact that he almost never drops an accurate pass or that he has been the best blocking receiver on the team for several years. Didn't B.A. try to recruit him to Tampa Bay or was that 'fake news'?
    I don't care what he gets paid. I just want to see him hoisting the Lombardi. Now pass the Kool-Aid. :koolaid:
