    Calvin Johnson seems to be hurt that the Lions dare ask for 10% of his signing bonus of the year he didn't play back after he retired. The Lions paid him around $150 million for his time in Detroit. Is this a case of butt-hurt by Mega or the Lions organization being a dick of an organization. Or are both just plain dumb?

    I probably should have added a neither to the poll.

    I say fukk him. He didn't play out his contract. It's a business. Get over yourself.
  4. Huntermsu Mr. Negativity

    It's business he didn't offer the Lions a loyalty discount on his contract when he signed it.
  5. Blaming Barry Well-Known Member

    He also didn't win them a playoff game.

    He also could have stayed and forced them to cut him and taken a boat load more.

    It's a business, and the Lions made you filthy rich well beyond what a receiver is worth.

    Quit whining.

    Just sayin, Romo wasn't asked to give back any of his signing bonus.

    That's a little different though because he was essentially forced out. And was gracious all year while he watched his job being taken by a rookie. I feel like that Cowboys owed him more than the Lions owed Calvin.

    After reading up on it some more, it sounds like his body took more of a beating than we were probably aware, so this isn't a situation where he could have easily played more but just didn't want to.

    The Lions were petty to ask for the repayment, and Calvin is being kinda' petty to complain about it publiclly.

    This isn't really newsworthy.
