so.... no MadDog sighting yet, huh???
No he showed up in typical Maddog fashion. Claiming that he was still right
According to Andrew Brandt's article on the National Football Post, I am right. Both sides made concessions, and both sides won battles on the slot. Brandt knows his stuff. He is a former salary cap administrator for an NFL team, and his breakdown was excellent.
Here is the pasted information at the conclusion. Many others have attached the link throughout this thread:
The Wait: The offer on the table for Parker and Crabtree of a couple days ago was:
Five years, $20M, $16M guaranteed.
The final deal is:
Six years, $32M ($28M over the first five), $17M guaranteed.
Analysis: Many have speculated that Crabtree took the same deal he was being offered for weeks, if not months, by the team. Parker and Crabtree may have made $8M over the next five years with their trip to San Francisco yesterday.
Hopefully the above data points out the strengths and weaknesses of this deal from both sides. It was a win for the team on some things and a win for the player on others, a deal that neither side feels great about. That usually means it is a good deal for both sides.
This was quite a saga, with a final face-to-face meeting spurred by a chance meeting between 49ers president and owner Jed York and MC Hammer at a social function. Only in the NFL
I'm sorry I have not been able to respond to some that have been claiming "victory" the last couple days, and have attempted to attack my position that both sides would win.
I guess, once again, these individuals who hope for nothing more for me to be wrong..... are wrong, and I....am right. What a shocker!!!
P.S. Eric Heitmann is still a good football player!!!!
Ya gotta love MadDogs revisionist history.
MD: 2+2 is 6!!! You're a fool. I know all.
Marvin: Um, no....its 4.
MD: Fool!! I was right!!! 2+2 is 4. Thats what I have been saying all along!!!!
seriously, I don't even think it's worth it to argue with the Mad one... He's never wrong, don't cho' know...
Ya, I'm done arguing with him...I just think he's funny now.
oh, and for the record, MD quoted a writer "who said Crabtree and agent won" yet another prominent 49ers beat writer Ann Killion posted this on SI.com: 49ers the clear winner as Crabtree ends bizarre contract holdout...
By the looks of things, if the numbers a correct, it does seem like the 49er brass won this negotiation...
