I don't know what the exact wording is in the collective bargaining agreement, but there has to be something done about loopholes in Contracts whereby a player can just refuse to play unless he got more money. In T.O.'s case he had just signed his contract a year or so earlier. I've seen some other Players renegiotate their contract with less fanfare, but there has to be a rule where a Player agrees to a certain Contract for a specific Period of time, and he has to live up to that.

Re: Highschoolers in the NFL, no way

Ultimately, whether they are physically (or otherwise) ready for the NFL or not, teams will sign high schoolers (or preschoolers) if that's when the talent is becoming available. They might not be ready to star in the league yet, but neither was Kobe, KG, etc. - not to mention all of the tennis, baseball, and other athletes that go pro as young teenagers.

Re: Highschoolers in the NFL, no way

I'm thinking that with under-class and high schoolers going pro, the NFL wil develop a kind of minor league like baseball has, where they "lock-in" a young talent, then they over see their development. That might not be a bad thing. It'll do away with college's and University's making millions off the athletes, while calling them student-athletes, so they don't have to pay them.

The statement 'to whom much is given much is expected' is a subjective one at best. Who determines what doing 'much' is and what not doing 'much' is?
