I'm not saying the Falcons are the bad guys, ( yes, you are ) what I'm saying is from the perspective of ( Pudge, and ) Grimes & Co. they are. Because their tagging him, cost him anywhere between $15-$30M. And if you were in their shoes, you'd be pissed off about that too, and might find it hard to hold your tongue.
I'm not married, but I've known, dated and been around enough women in my lifetime, that if/when she has something on her mind, there is very little I as a man can do to prevent her from expressing it.
I guess my point is even if I believe Miko Grimes is his mouthpiece...so what?
All that matters is that at the end of the day, Brent Grimes is probably not going to be a Falcon any longer, and more than likely the Falcons are going to be a lesser team because of it.
How did they 'cost' him that $$? He was injured, and possibly
being a 'b*tch'? They gave him 10 mil
, and he instantly got injured! What they should have re-upped him after coming off an injury ( happened ) and maybe because he was pouting ( rumor)? I mean, it's not a 'guarded' secret. Cyril is right, this stuff has been trickling out for awhile now. They didn't 'cost' him anything. He got his biggest payday yet. The fact that he hasn't been snapped up by anyone now means he will be lucky
to get 4-5 mil.
Pudge: address this please. Why no 'response' to the allegations? Where is his agent?! Why such 'hostility' apparent on social media, even if it is his wife and he cannot control her
Sorry, Im not buying it.
I mean c'mon man. LOOK! If you were an agent: and there's stories going round that your client sat himself, is being a diva, and has a diva wife, doesnt show up for stuff, seems aloof: you dont handle that this way
. You 'get out' in front of that story
(unless your reppin Elvis). I just haven't seen that. Really.
So that, and coupled with the stuff that gets 'leaked' out by Archer and Co, I guess I'm just skeptical
As far as 'controlling women' in your comments, all I will say is this: the Falcons Filter is an All Seeing Eye. It doesn't just lookfor legal 'issues', it is 'who you surround yourself with'. This is an unfortunate residue of MV7. It doesnt matter if your Ookies bong packer or Miko Grimes Agent At Large: you F*CK with the FO and you get the horns. (see Ray Edwards) .
There is something else afoot here. Guy comes undrafted from Europe, has 2 years as a ST guy, 2 decent years and 2 injured years. And he 'thinks' he is worth 6-10 mil
Now this does agree with your central premise: that there is really nothing 'personal' here, it's all about the Benji's. But......I'm just not seeing it that way.
Hopefully I am wrong, and he signs, and plays well. But if he walks, I am still going to believe there is more to this story then 'it's all about the $$'....
