    Football player walking away from millions

    Mofitt, leaving 319,000 remaining for the rest of the year, just 2 months excluding possible playoffs and a contract for 2014.

    Firstly, think its pretty insane to leave this kind of money on the table knowing that it would take the average general practicing doctor who studied for 8+ years at least 2 years to make the kind of money this guy is leaving for not showing up for another 2-3 months.

    But...if this is saying anything, I think it is saying that football is not the game it was 10 years ago and is now obviously becoming so violent that even the guys making money that would make most of our heads spin for a few months of work and only 1 game a week...they are still starting to walk away.

    Very telling. Game is too violent like going back in time when they watched gladiators kill each other. Slowly getting more violent.

    Kudos to him. Its his life and he's living right now, just with much less money from now on.
