You're Kidding, Right?


This morning I heard some more whining from an NFL player. This time it was from star wide receiver, Anquan Boldin from the Phoenix Cardinals.

He is wanting to be traded because he feels he is being treated unfairly. Here is what he said, "If I'm not going to be treated fairly, if my hard work and loyalty isn't going to be rewarded here, then let me go somewhere where it's going to be rewarded. That's how I feel," Boldin said.

Let me get this straight. Last year he signed a four year extension to his contract worth $22.75 million. He makes on average $4 million per year. He earns this whether he catches any passes or not. And he's not being treated fairly.

Whatever happened to being thankful, especially in the midst of such incredible wealth. Whatever happened to integrity and standing by the terms of a contract or agreement? Does anyone else find this ridiculous?

We too, just got back last weekend from a 3 week vacation in Canada, which we shared with Lindsey. What a joy that was! God is GOOD!
