Owners want the players to only be able to sign for 3 years if they are signing with new teams. The current system allows the players to sign for 5 years. The reason for this is certainly understandable. If a player signs for 5 years and blows his knee out and misses 2 years out of the 5, the owners are still stuck paying that salary to the player and are getting nothing in return. These kind of things happen and can cripple a team for years leaving the owners unable to sign new players because they have millions tied up in an injured player.

Famous rappers such as Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, R. Kelly, and ECT… have almost planted these racial slurs into our minds through there “trashy rap”. Imus in morning was not only reprimanded for his comments but later let go, due to the uprising of the black community. Rappers, Movie Stars, Comedians and even Gangsters have been giving black woman and negative name calling them “items, hoes, and even bitches.” This is not even in the privacy of their home it is in public on movies and even cd’s. Earl believes that this is due to the fact that these black celebrities are giving an ok to everyone to degrade woman of their own race. He states that “The same
At this point in the movie each of his players has their head down, because they are losing. He only has three minutes to encourage his team to play better at the game. He explains to them “I pissed away all my money, chased away all of the people that loved me, and lately I can’t stand the person I see in the mirror” (D’Amato: Any Given Sunday). His example sets up a personal mindset of what a loser gets in life. D’Amato was mad at himself for such things he’s done as middle-age man.
Now we can add Michael Jordan name to the list of players I just named. Jordan is being inducted into the Hall of Fame today due to his great basketball skills on the court and all of the things he accomplished in fifteen seasons in the NBA.

Both having been born and lived though the Great Depression, they had a “Waste not, want not.” attitude that they tired to instil in Beavan.

"He went like that," Spade said, "like a fist when you open your hand. "(62) Five years later Spade, who was then working for a Seattle detective agency, is
It would be difficult to deal with not being able to have that sense of accomplishment after having it for so long. This scenario is easy for me to relate too, as I have seen this first-hand within my own family. My dad in the past two or three years had his business go bankrupt. As well as, getting laid off from his next job at Lowes (indefinitely), and then was without work at all for about six months. In my eyes he has
