Not arguing there...Glenn is better than Greene was. Glenn should have got a better shot, but staff loved Greene's athletic ability...when he was 100% he was tough to stop, when he was 95% he may as well not play. Glenn leaving is questionable but at least he was a backup. Burris was a starter and did not ask for the moon. That was just plain poor management.
The public numbers quoted anywhere were approx 330k (and still would be the highest contract in franchise history even today), or about exactly what he got in Calgary and A LOT more than Nealon was making.
And if I remember correctly, Burris laughed when he heard that figure and said it was no were even close to that. Those numbers came out when Shivers was trieing to save his but from the backlash he was getting for letting Burris go. Anyway, that's long ago, todays' troubles are consuming enough.
