I remember a conference I had at uni for one of my papers related to some of the legal aspects of sports. I do remember about the the player's association top guy talking about player's contracts which he literally defined as "business relationships" rather than mere contracts.
People...get over the whole SBW issue...PROFESSIONAL SPORT IS ABOUT THE MONEY. Full stop.

This is why i never bother with most sports, because at the end of the day they are just playing for a paycheck.
Of course im not blaming the players, they are just doing whats in their best interests, good on them they should look after themselfs first.
That said stuff putting them on a pedestal when most of them really are just there play well and earn big money.

Kia kaha. All the best Sonny. I am a female (not quite 80) and you have given me a lot. You encourage me. I am inspired by the so many things you say and do. Thank you Sonny. Remember it its simplest terms you are just "changing bus companies". We will always love and support you in everything you do. It has been a blessing to have you play for our teams. I feel truly blessed to have followed you. I wish for you a prosperous, happy and fulfilled future. I got to like watching rugby from watching you. May peace be with you Sonny, always.

Half an hour after breaking their hearts, Sonny Bill Williams finally gave Canterbury fans something they have been craving for four-and-a-half years - a public apology.
The man they all came to see didn't disappoint as Sonny Bill Williams tormented his former NRL club with a starring role in the Sydney Roosters' 38-0 demolition of Canterbury at Allianz Stadium.
He'll be the centre of attention on Friday night, but Sydney Roosters players believe a hate campaign from Canterbury fans will only serve to further inspire gun forward Sonny Bill Williams.
The Chiefs have beaten the Crusaders 28-19 in a tight affair at Waikato Sta...
