Brady's career would have been cut by 60% if he had played in the 50's or 60's.
I don't watch Fox News for the same reason I don't eat out of my toilet.

Jack Youngblood played on a broken leg.  Different era for sure.

In the locker room he told the trainer to "tape an asprin to it".

Earl Thomas of the Seahawks brakes his leg, gets carted off and flips off the Seahawks sideline. 

There should be a clause in the contracts that pay doesn't happen for eggregious moments like that. 

Also in his case, contracts should be written that if you don't show up for practice, you lose 3 games pay.  Next day, another 3 games pay.  Leave the performance incentives alone. Base pay is gone.
