Maurice Clarett Rambles About Paying Players

Submitted by Emarcy on July 12th, 2011 at 4:39 PM

My favorite excerpt is this incoherent argument for paying players:

"It’s big business everywhere.  So if a guy has a need and he doesn’t seek anybody out, and nobody seeks him out, he’s just a guy travelling through a community, and somebody didn’t recognize him and they say, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ and you start a relationship with somebody, they aren’t trying to get you in trouble or doing something illegal. … At the end of the month, the money’s going to dwindle. It’s not realistic. The school makes $40, 50, 60 million, why is a guy struggling with $1,100?”

"The best thing I can do is some of the things that took place for me in my career and the mistakes I made, like I said, just come back in and offer them to Terrelle or some of the young guys.”

Their athletic ability is their asset. It's the way out of poverty for many of these athletes. Even if you don't agree, at least try to understand the mindset.
