Steve Lee is back to weigh in on the overpaid northwest athletes. Be it on the ice, turf or court, the yearly income of these individuals is absurd, when you think that for many of us, we pay to play the sport we love. He points out the following NW athletes stole a lot of money from their owners. Brian Bosworth (The Boz). Roberto Luongo, Chone Figgins, Vin Baker, Darius Miles, and Jim McIlvaine. It seems more and more that money has no boundaries in the world of sports.
Teams over the years in the Northwest corner, on either side of the line have dished out their share of overpaid contracts. The Vancouver Grizzlies, Seattle Supersonics, Seattle Seahawks, Portland Trailblazers, Vancouver Canucks are all guilty. Bryant Reeves, Mark Messier, Carlos Silva, Shaun Alexander, Theo Ratliff, Jim McIlvaine have all gotten paid haven’t they?
