Half Smokes Hypothetical: What If Albert Haynesworth Made Less Money?

New, 1 comment

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion where we throw out a D.C. sports-related question based on the news of the day. It's a hypothetical discussion, which is what makes it fun (we hope).


Today's hypothetical isn't as much a hypothetical as it is a question that we all need to be asking ourselves. Sure, we're angry at Albert Haynesworth, and we should be. But at the same time, one of the biggest pieces to this puzzle is that Haynesworth is one of the highest-paid players in NFL history. He didn't just get a small roster bonus; he got a $21 million roster bonus.


So with that in mind, here's today's hypothetical.


How would you feel about Albert Haynesworth's actions if, say, his contract was for half as much as it actually is? Would it make a difference? Be honest.
