Denver Bronco John Moffitt Walks Away from His Million Dollar Contract

Denver Bronco third year guard John Moffitt has decided to retire from football, leaving $1 million dollars on the table in his existing contract. He had this to say in a phone interview:

“I just really thought about it and decided I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all. And I think it’s really madness to risk your body, risk your well-being and risk your happiness for money.

“Everybody, they just don’t get it and they think it’s crazy. But I think what I was doing is crazy.”

“I don’t care about the Super Bowl. I don’t. I used to. I mean, anytime I played this game, I gave my heart to it and I’m a person that does thing with his heart. … I don’t need the Super Bowl experience. I played in great stadiums and I played against great players. And I had that experience and it’s enough.”

Hopefully it won’t come out that Peyton Manning was bullying him and calling him half a…well, you know.

    It must be a sad epiphany when you realize you’ve just been chasing a ball around with a group of other freaks of nature.  Wait till he realizes he’s just floating on a giant ball alone in the universe.  I’m trying to be deep, but I think I’m too high to pull it off.

    Football  will, has, to change.  It will depend on who arranges the change, football itself or a politician looking to make a name for her or him self.

    Guess what we’ve learned this week? Despite having the tools such as body type and aptitude some athlete do not feel the need or possess the temperament to win at all cost. Maybe a lesson Peyton Manning could use before he takes that last hit that puts him in a wheelchair.
