    Aaron Schobel to Retire

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/08/16/aaron-schobel-says-hes-retiring-again/

    Well, that ends that. I still think it's a smokescreen though. As teams pile up injuries, they're wanting to sign the guy and bring him in. If he wants to truly play, he doesn't want to be in training camp either. He wants to come in Week 1 and run after the QB, nothing more and nothing less.

    What say you?

    Not buying it. Sounds like he doesn't want to do trainging camp. I find it hard to believe he's going to leave a potential ten million dollars on the table for 2 more years and out of his family's coffers.

    I mean really..... you want to pack on 30 pounds, and not diet? Really? So you're giving up MILLIONS of dollars to be fat? Not buying it. Nope.

    We've all seen this very transparent ploy before.

    He probably couldn't get Houston to back the money truck up to his house so now he's going to play hard to get.

    When has a 32 year old guy at the top of his game ever walked away from the NFL? (not counting head cases like Ricky Williams)

    Even if he doesnt retire, is there really a chance he ends up anywhere but Houston?

    Yeah, I'm not totally buying this - I'm sure we will hear from Schobel at some point this off-season/season.

    At that time the money wasn't what it is today. And Sanders had supplemental income from endorsement deals. I don't think the financial gains would have been as dramatic to put his body through that for another couple years. Again, I could be wrong, but it's a thought.

    Tony Eason as well. He said to Grogan "I want to able to play tennis at forty" The guy wore a skirt just like uncleafie. You know uncleafie the tough guy that puts everyone on ignore because he's a wuzzy.

    Road Queen, you've made it very obvious to everyone on this board that you have an unhealthy obsession with me. Maybe you should take up the subject of latent homosexuality with your therapist during your next session.

    I put ignorant losers such as yourself, who never have anything interesting or informative to say, on ignore because I have better things to do with my time than banter with the likes of you. Besides, in a battle of wits, you're an unarmed man.

    Really, what the h*ll is wrong with you? For more than a year you've been trolling this board looking for my posts so you can hide behind the anonymity of your keyboard to post ridiculous, juvenile little nastygrams that you would never, in a million years, dare say to my face.

    Are you that much of a raving loony-left socialist that you feel compelled to stalk me because I'm an ex-Marine Vietnam vet? Again, what the h*ll is wrong with you?

    Sanders walked away from millions of dollars at about age 30 at the top of his game.  He probably would've put all RB rushing records beyond reach and would've been considererd the best ever, if he isn't already.  I agree though that he probably felt that playing for the Lions wasn't worth the scratch or his long term health.
