Why do people say the player has let the team down
if they look for and find a better paying job?
Scott Coe didn't get to choose the team
he wanted to play for in the first place.
Drafted players have no control
over which team drafts them.
If that team doesn't commit to them
by re-signing them before
or during their option year
then, they are free to look for
and choose their own employer.
Are those of us in the non-football world
who look for and take better paying jobs,
accused of having bailed out on
or abandoned our previous employer?
We chose our employer,
we didn't swear a oath of allegiance,
and neither did Scott Coe.
