[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Brees about to screw the Saints chances for more..... : Is it possible for you to come down of your self righteous high horse? I just think that if a guy won't talk to his mother, he may not be the easiest guy to negotiate a contract with (we're not talking about a guy that doesn't talk to his college buddy, but his own mom). His mom was an alcoholic? Wow! That is pretty bad!! There are no alcoholics on the planet - she must of been the Devil. And she abandoned him? She must of left him in a card board box or something. He must of crawled out of that box, fed himself, fought for his life, learned how to play football, went to a 40k a year school and then managed to get drafted and make millions upon millions of dollars. Heck the Saints should give him a billion dollars for that, maybe they should just put his name on the dead to the city (for all he has done for them and all).

You shouldn't judge his relationship with his mother.
He made his choice, and he lives with it, just like his mother did.
Because other people forgive their alcoholic parents, he should? Because other people have forgiven selfish, abondoning parent, he should? Why? Sometimes, family or not, people cause you so much pain you have to make the decision to cut ties. Just because this woman had sex, got pregant, and popped him into a hospital, she gets lifetime forgiveness? I think not. Being a parent is more than being biologically connected. If she didn't nurture those bonds, she doesn't deserve the relationship and he shouldn't be viewed in a bad light because of it. It's their situation, not ours to judge. He lived the situation, he made his choice, he's not asking you to live it.
As far as the contract, this seems odd. It's almost as if Breese was trying to force his way out of town by making outrageous demands so he could leave without being the bad guy. Maybe he really is disgusted by the bountygate thing, but won't bury his team publicly. At any rate, he's nailing himself to the cross if he costs the team his own Pro Bowl guard. That's not intelligent.
