“I Can Show You How to Make A Mil Right Now”

I’ve been following this Michael Crabtree fiasco pretty closely since he was drafted. I first learned about him in that epic Texas Tech/Texas game in which I saw him single handedly bring his team from behind to win that game. I will repeat, he single handedly did that.

I know football is THEE team sport and it takes 22 blah blah blah. But if you witnessed the game you know what I’m talking about*.

And with that, I was an immediate fan. Fast forward about 6 months and I had to ask myself, is this guy being an asshole? For those of you who dont know, Crabtree was selected 10th overall in this year’s draft despite being named by many as the draft’s best player. He wasn’t even the first WR selected, Terrapin Darius Heyward-Bey was at pick 7.

Crabtree, according to the media, thinks he deserves first recievers money. Now this post isn’t going to turn into ‘the NFL needs a rookie cap system’ post, but man if your picked 10th, you get 10th money. I remember a couple years ago when Reggie Bush tried that crap after Mario Williams was selected ahead of him even though the whole world thought Bush was the second coming of Marshall Faulk **.

He isnt. But that’s besides the point, you take the money slotted to where you were drafted not where you could have been drafted. Now there are reports that Crabtree’s agent is saying his client is the one holding up negotiations. This would be a perfect time for him to adress the media and 49ers fans. We are hearing from everyone except the person in the middle of this controversy. Speak up Michael, tell the people whats going on. Maybe they wont hate you so much***.

**He’s been a pretty big bust based on his pre-draft hype

*** Yea not likely
