You sound like Gary Busey on Entourage with the random posts you make. This becomes more of a life coaching discussion than Darrelle Revis discussion.....can we keep it relevant to the thread and keep the other stuff to the "Off-Topic Thread" that is all your own?

[b]What will end the Revis holdout?[/b]

- [b]He agrees to the 10-year, $122 million deal that Jets have offered since Memorial Day weekend. It initially contained $40 million in injury guarantees, but no fully guaranteed money.[/b] Before the Revis camp and the Jets agreed to impose a news blackout more than two weeks ago, Revis' agents were saying not one penny was fully guaranteed, a fact the Jets have disputed. I believe Revis will sign this long-term offer if about $30 million is fully guaranteed.

Make Revis a final take it or leave it offer of 10 years, $140M...$35M guaranteed. If he rejects it, ignore him and shut down all negotiations. Jets control his rights for 3 more years, see what he'll be worth if he doesn;t play.

In search of Jets holdout Revis
By Jerry DiPaola,
PITTSBURGH
TRIBUNE - REVIEW
Tuesday , August 31,
2010
Aliquippa football coach Mike Zmijanac was
walking through a parking garage Sunday
night in Downtown Pittsburgh after attending
the stage play ″Phantom of the Opera ″ when
his phone rang .
The caller , a Tribune - Review reporter , was in
search of another phantom , New York Jets
All - Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis .
Zmijanac said he hadn ' t seen Revis , but
others have spotted the NFL' s most famous
holdout everywhere from the fields at
Aliquippa and Hopewell high schools to an
apartment complex about a block from
Aliquippa ' s main street , Franklin Avenue .
The reporter ' s assignment : Navigate Revis
Island, find the former Pitt star and ask him if
he plans to play this season.
The chase starts Monday morning when a TV
news van - - surely , in town to interview Revis
- - is spotted on Franklin Avenue . After
following it for 5 miles, the reporter finds the
van in a strip mall outside of town where it is
revealed a scrapyard fire - not the NFL ' s
reluctant warrior - - is the big story of the day .
That' s OK . It ' s best to start at the source ,
anyway, and the next stop is The Pit,
Aliquippa ' s legendary home field where Revis
led the Quips to WPIAL and PIAA
championships in 2003.
The story goes that Revis has been working
out there while his agents argue with the Jets
over millions of dollars. Sadly , the field is
padlocked , and no one - - except a few
construction workers - - is in sight .
Strike one.
Leaving the high school and rolling down the
hill into town , the reporter stops at a
convenience store . The man behind the
counter says , yes, he has heard Revis is in
town .
″Have you seen him ? ″
″Nah. ″
But a woman waiting in line says she had
heard he was at Hopewell ' s Tony Dorsett
Stadium .
It takes longer for Revis to return an
interception 100 yards than it does to drive
from The Pit to Hopewell , and the next thing
you know , the reporter is in a classroom with
football coach and astronomy teacher Dave
Vestal .
Vestal is so eager to help in the search for
Revis that when he turns on the lights of his
darkened planetarium , you almost expect to
see Revis sitting in a chair, pen in hand ,
preparing to sign a new Jets contract .
It turns out to be wishful thinking .
Strike two.
Vestal doesn' t know the player ' s
whereabouts, but he says Revis was at the
school ' s track last week during football
practice . There , some bold football players - -
including star running back Rushel Shell - -
challenged him to a race.
″But he turned them down , ″ Vestal says . ″He
said it wouldn ' t be professional for him to
race high school kids .″
Undaunted, the reporter secures a phone
number for Aileen Gilbert, who is Revis '
grandmother.
A possible break in the case - - she says she
has spoken to Revis .
″Of course , I talked to him - - I ' m his
grandmother, ″ she says , a bit indignantly.
Unfortunately, Aileen is a wise woman,
sensitive to her grandson ' s desire for privacy ,
and she refuses to even confirm he is in town .
Strike three .
Nothing left to do now - - but have lunch.
The choice is Wawro ' s on Franklin Avenue ( try
the sweet- and- spicy wings ) . Owner Mary Kay
Wawro says she taught English at Aliquippa
High School for 30 years .
″I didn ' t have (Revis ) in class , but I know he is
well - liked in the community , ″ she says .
Seated at the bar , sipping slowly on his vodka
and cranberry juice, a man who identifies
himself only as ″Rick ″ says he knows Revis '
cousin .
″Drive me to work, and I ' ll show you , ″ Rick
says . ″Darrelle has a gray Range Rover , and he
parks it at his cousin ' s house.″
The Range Rover is gone, but outside the
apartment complex is Danae, who says she
graduated from Aliquippa with Revis in 2004.
″Did you date him ?″
″I wish I had, ″ she says .
″Have you seen him ? ″
″No.″ Then, she asks : ″If I had seen him,
would you pay me for (the information)? ″
Don' t blame Danae. After all , money is at the
root of the Revis story, is it not ?
Danae' s friend , who passionately asked not to
be identified , isn ' t sure if she knew Revis , but
she has some recollection of his holdout.
With a quizzical look , she asks : ″Ain' t he
unemployed right now?″
Get it done MT

[b]Desperately seeking Darrelle Revis[/b]

[b]'Phantom of Aliquippa' is a step ahead of the media; only Grandma is willing to talk[/b]
[/size][size="3"][size="2"][list][*]>Email[*][url="http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/print?id=5522036&type=story"]Print[/url][*][url="http://myespn.go.com/s/conversations/show/story/5522036"]Comments[/url][/list][url="http://search.espn.go.com/rich-cimini/"][img]http://a.espncdn.com/i/columnists/Cimini_Rich_35.jpg[/img][/url]By Rich Cimini
ESPNNewYork.com
[url="http://search.espn.go.com/rich-cimini/"]Archive[/url]

[size="3"][color="#333333"][size="3"]ALIQUIPPA, PA. -- Revis Island is a modest brick ranch at the end of a 100-foot blacktop driveway, protected by trees and barely visible from a busy road. There's a detached, two-car garage, which houses [url="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10458"]Darrelle Revis[/url]' black Mercedes SUV, and a rickety basketball hoop that looks like it's one slam dunk away from the next garbage pick-up.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]This is where Revis' grandmother, Aileen Gilbert, lives. This is where Revis was on that fateful day in April 2007, when his name was called by the [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/nyj/new-york-jets"]New York Jets[/url] in the first round of the NFL draft. (What a party that was.) Until Tuesday, this is where he sought refuge for part of his preseason holdout, which is 32 days and counting.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]It's quiet here, a good place to escape. Revis' island.[/size][/color]
[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color]
[color="#333333"][size="3"]Revis spent about a week in Aliquippa, a working-class town fiercely protective of his privacy. You ask acquaintances if they know his whereabouts, and they act like you're IRS, refusing to confirm anything. You want information, but everybody turns into a Belichick. Others admit they've seen Revis around town, but nothing more than a glimpse here, a glimpse there.[/size][/color]
[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][/size][/size][/size][/font]
[font="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"][size="3"][size="2"][size="3"][color="#333333"][size="3"]"The phantom of Aliquippa," said Mike Zmijanac, who coached Revis at Aliquippa High School.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]The phantom vanished Tuesday, according to his grandmother, who refused to say where he was headed. Back to the Jets, perhaps?[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"Not that I know of," she told ESPNNewYork.com, smiling at her front door.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]This grandma knows the business of the NFL, and it bothers her that Darrelle isn't playing football with the season less than two weeks away.Within seconds, Gilbert was discussing her grandson's holdout, dispensing sharp opinions about Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum. She's not naïve; she raised an NFL player, Sean Gilbert, who played from 1992 to 2003 and sat out an entire season because of a contract dispute.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"Darrelle does what he does because he loves it," she said, sitting at her dining-room table. "For this to be happening to him, it's almost like a slap in the face, because he's not appreciated."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]So much for the gag order. Revis' agents and the Jets agreed last month not to discuss the negotiations publicly, but does that include grandparents?[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"I know he wants to play, but Darrelle understands contract negotiations," she said, wearing the local school's colors -- an orange Aliquippa High T-shirt. "Some players don't get it, but Darrelle can read a contract. I think he's comfortable with his decision [to hold out] because he knows what he was told by the Jets and he knows what he's worth.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"People are trying to portray him as greedy, but he has outperformed his contract," she continued. "For them to put him in this position is just unreal."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Revis has managed to keep a low profile during the holdout, which has made national headlines. When he's home, Gilbert said, they don't discuss the negotiations. That's why he came home, she said. The oldest of her 15 grandchildren came home for quiet time, and his hometown obliged.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]When ESPNNewYork.com showed up Wednesday, looking for Revis, it led to an almost comical chain of events. First stop, Aliquippa High, where football practice was under way. Remember the old Tom Cruise football movie, "All the Right Moves"? That came to mind immediately.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Practice stopped, dead silent, when a staffer yelled across the field to the coaches, "He's looking for Darrelle Revis."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]An assistant coach walked over, asking the reporter to leave the premises -- immediately. A minute later, Zmijanac came to the sideline to investigate. He was polite. No, he hadn't seen his former star player, who led Aliquippa to a championship in 2003.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"Obviously, if he came home, he wanted privacy and we respect that," Zmijanac said. "He played here. He's still one of our kids, he's still one of my friends. He's a grown man and it's a business."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]End of conversation. Walking away, Zmijanac said to the reporter, "If you see him, tell him I said hey."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]On to Hopewell High, on the other side of Aliquippa, where Revis was seen recently running sprints on the track at Tony Dorsett Stadium.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]No Revis.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Someone there suggested checking the DiNardo Fitness Center, about a mile from school. A woman behind the juice bar reported no Revis sightings, but a man in the gym said Revis works out with a private trainer in a basement gym, located beneath the Get Pampered Salon.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]You can't make this stuff up.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]On to the salon, a non-descript brick building with no customers. A kind woman behind the counter said the trainer is named Rod Forbes, but he wasn't around. She scribbled his number on the back of a spare business card for Dirty Dog Pet Grooming.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Minutes later, Forbes showed up. He played football in high school, and it showed. He was built like a safety, save for the flecks of gray in his mustache. "I can't answer anything without Darrelle being present," he said.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"Do you train Darrelle?"[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"I can't answer that," Forbes said. "I don't want to say anything that might impact his situation."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]He took a phone number, promising to pass it along to Revis. He disappeared behind a brown door with a "Notary" sign on it.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Revis didn't call -- no surprise -- but there was a call from someone suggesting that Revis could be hiding out at his grandmother's house. Three miles later, down Brodhead Road, Aileen Gilbert answered the door.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]She beamed with pride as she talked about her grandson, yet she seemed frustrated by his holdout. How long will it last? Will Revis copy his uncle and sit out the season? She admitted Sean is a strong influence on Darrelle -- "a given," she said.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]"If he does," Gilbert said of sitting out the season, "it won't be because of Sean. It'll be because the Jets don't give him a decent contract."[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]A cell phone rang. It was her daughter, Darrelle's mother, who heard that a reporter from New York was there, asking questions. Word travels fast in Aliquippa.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Gilbert ended the interview, politely.[/size][/color]

[color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"] [/color][color="#333333"][size="3"]Exit, Revis Island.[/size][/color]
[/size][/size][/size][/font]

Senility has obviously struck this woman if she thinks he's unappreciated and not being greedy. And apparently Revis does NOT know his true value and what he's worth with demands of over 160 million dollars.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

WTF is your problem with me Mr Jet? If she says something stupid, I'm going to call her out on it. If you weren't riding Revis' dick so damn hard you'd see that he IS a greedy son of a bitch & that the Jets DO appreciate him. Where did I not show class? Because I pointed out very stupid statements? I honestly don't care if she was Mother Theresa. If she says something stupid in regards to the contract situation, I will call her out on it. If you don't like what I post, don't read it. Get over yourself already.

[quote]Jets in danger of losing CB Revis forever?

According to Yahoo's Jason Cole, Darrelle Revis relationship with the Jets is "ticking toward an end."
"A divorce, really," insists Cole. "That might sound like hysteria to some but it's reality." Revis is apparently adamant that he won't show up "ever again" if the Jets don't substantially increase their long-term contract offer soon. The Revis camp obviously has Cole convinced, but let's keep in mind that this is the height of saber rattling season with the season opener on the horizon. Sep. 2 - 9:56 pm et[/quote]

SO many people saying SO many different things. Getting ridiculous already...

Jason Cole was a Dolphin writer before, his opinion means little. He has no inside information, just his opinion.

We'll see what happens.

John Clayton seems to think that the Jets and Revis will get something done this weekend.

You really need to chill out. Just because I'm not comparing what Revis is doing to being raped at gunpoint and not calling a woman I've never met senile (or as Vandelay so eloquently put it "a stupid *beep*") based totally off of some comments she made, doesn't mean I am "riding his dick." You ever stop and think for a moment that she might have just said that because she loves her grandson and wants to support him no matter what he does? What you actually expected her to say "my grandson is being a greedy son of a bitch"? I don't think many grandmothers are going to say that about their grandchildren even IF it is true. You are the only one in this thread acting like you have a personal stake in when Revis signs a contract and how much it is worth. First what he is doing was like raping people at gunpoint, then his grandmother is senile, now he's a son of a bitch. Next thing you'll say if his father is a terrorist. Relax.

REMEMBER at the end of the day it's just a football team. If they win they win and if they lose they lose. It's not the end of the world. The world will keep turning and they'll be other games.

I already explained the rape comment long ago that I went to delete it & reqord it but missed the rape word. As for calling his grandmother senile, she must be if she thinks an offer of 122 million dollars is "unfair" or a "slap int he face" or that he is "unappreciated".

Do I have a personal stake in his contract dispute? As a matter of fact, yes I do by purchasing tickets to the games & thanks to players such as himself thinking they are above the team, my ticket prices continue to increase. Also, I have a personal stake in it because I'd like to see a superbowl championship during my lifetime. This team was supposed to be built to do that or at least contend for it this season, but if our all pro CB is holding out due to greed, that's obviously not going to happen. So yeah......I do take it personally when all I'm seeing in Darrelle MEvis is just the Defensive Meshawn Johnson.

I'm not saying you need to agree with my poistions or opinions on the subject but just as you say it's real classy of me to call his grandmother senile, aren't you showing the same amount of class by attacking what I'm saying? Why is it okay for you to attack my comments, but not okay for me to attack hers? Or are you above the rest of us? I'm sure you didn't think of it in that sense did you?

Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink sooner or later.

Flyhi, I continue to say this, but if you really think it is the greedy players causing ticket prices to go up you're so wrong it's sad. You're buying into the owners' line, hard. Ticket prices go up because, surprise, stadiums sell out and owners are (surprise) greedy. This broken record of your is crazy.

The players ask for money as a reaction to the revenue the team brings in. If for a second you think ticket prices would go down if the NFLPA formally set a cap at three million a year for anyone, you're fooling yourself. Keep scapegoating Revis, but the sad thing here is if ticket prices are what is pissing your blue-collar self off, you should be mad at the owners who charge it and the fans you pay for it without hesitation.

LOL. Where did I once call you senile or crazy or stupid or dumb or in anyway questioned your mental capabilities? Show me where I said that. You see there is a difference between calling a person senile and disagreeing with their opinions. See I may not agree with your opinion on this whole contract matter but I never called you senile or anything like that based off of what you said. All I did was question why you would question her mental capabilities, I never questioned yours or said anything disrespectful about you. Disagreeing with Revis's grandmother's statement is perfectly fine. But you then went a step further and called her senile. That is what I found as being classless and going overboard. You could have disagreed with her statements and not called her senile. I'll give you credit though, at least you didn't call her a stupid *beep*.

But since you continue to believe you pay Revis's salary. Please tell me how the revenue generated from the ticket sales of eight home games can alone pay the salaries for all the players, all the coaching staff, the training staff, the stadium crew, the front office staff, and all the other people that work for and around the team? If ticket sales and parking prices alone paid the players salaries they would not be making millions or anything close to it. Ticket sales do not generate enough revenue for that. How many times does somebody have to tell you that? AGAIN the TV contracts pay the player's salaries. You are not paying Revis's salary. CBS, NBC, Fox, and ESPN pays his salary. Ticket prices being high because of players salaries is an old myth that was disproven a long time ago.

Again.....a matter of opinion. If people like me didn't go to the stadium for the games, do you really think that the TV contracts would exist? I don't. They are all tied together whether you choose to believe that or not.

Yes I do think the TV contracts would still exist if people like you didn't buy tickets for the games. The TV contracts are based off of the people watching at home not the ones in the stadium watching. The people watching at home aren't watching the games to see the fans in the stands. They watch the games to see the players on the field. The people at home get to see the [b]Subway[/b] Halftime and Post Game Shows. Or the [b]Toyota[/b] Halftime and Post Game Show. Or the [b]AT&T[/b] Halftime and Post Game Shows. Along with Subway's, Toyota's, and AT&T's wonderful advertisements during the games. That's why the TV contracts exists. The high TV ratings the football games give the networks gives them the ability to charge companies more money to advertise during those games. So when it comes time to sign a new contract for the rights to broadcast games, the NFL can charge the networks more money to air their games. If the NFL brings the networks billions the networks have to also pay out billions to air the games. The more popular the league is on TV to more they can charge to air their games. That's why NFL players get paid more than MLS players. More Americans would rather watch pro-football than pro-soccer, so that means companies are more willing to pay more to advertise during NFL games than during MLS games. Ticket sales are chump change compared to the money from the TV contracts. The money you spent on your tickets mostly go into Woody Johnson's pocket.

Oh man don't be so one-sided.

It's a big circle...

Fans want to see better teams, in bigger stadiums, with cheerleaders, and pep rally's and state-of-the-art practice facilities to attract more expensive free agents!

Someone has to pay for it!

No one is at fault here, it is just the nature of things. If something is going to get this popular it will become more and more extravagant and therefore more and more expensive.
