Kurt Warner Wants Top 5 Quarterback Money From Cardinals

Kurt Warner Talked To God, And God Said "Get Paid, Son."

2/25/09 in NFL   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

Let me start this off by saying I do like Kurt Warner. I know he's a good guy. But this, well, this is an example of what I hate most about athletes and their use of religion.

As you know, Warner said after the Cardinals rough Super Bowl loss that he wasn't sure if he'd play football again. However, he said he'd "get all the information [he could], sit back and pray about it and see what God leads [him] to do."

Well, it seems God told Kurt Warner to get freakin' paid, because Warner is trying to pull down some huge coin from the Cardinals now. Funny how God works. But let's let Kurt tell us what it's all about. Via Pro Football Talk, here's what Kurt told Sporting News Radio:

“I’ve never been about the money, although I do know that money means commitment in this business,” Warner said. “My bottom line is I want to keep this team together and I want to have a chance to win a championship and that’s the most important thing, and I want to be compensated as well because I know these are probably going to be the last two years I’m going to play and I’m in a great position, having success from being at the Super Bowl and being a free agent.

“It’s a good position to be in and where I’ve maybe taken a bit less over the last four or five years while I’ve tried to solidify myself. Now, you’re in the position to maximize some things as you move forward and end your career and go on in the future.”

In other words, it's never been about the money, but yeah, it's always been about the money. So how much money does Kurt - or, I mean, God - want? Let's hear from Kurt's agent, who it should be noted is doing God's work now:

Agent Mark Bartelstein said Warner deserves a salary among the top “four or five” quarterbacks in the league, no matter where he plays. According to Bartelstein, those five earn an average of about $14.5 million per year.

In an interview with The Associated Press Tuesday night, Bartelstein declined to say what the Cardinals were offering.

“It’s unfortunate,” Bartelstein said. “I thought it would get done quickly, but it hasn’t. We’ll keep working on it.”

Man, God drives a hard bargain. Apparently the Cards originally were offering around $10 million, and have since upped their offer to $12 million per. I wonder if God's pissed about that paltry offer. Surely, he must be.

All right, that's enough of my sarcasm for now, but you understand my point. God has nothing to do with this Kurt. This is about you wanting to get paid, period. And frankly, there's nothing wrong with that. So please, since you consider yourself to be a religious man, stop sullying God's name by claiming he has some eternal interest in your contract negotiations. God doesn't give a rat's ass about it, and you know it.

It seems God told Kurt Warner that he needs to get paid. [Shutdown Corner]

Can we please get back on topic?  This was supposed to be an article about Kurt Warner talking to God, NOT a religion class!  So stop quoting the bible, don't worry if God was a homosexual, and let's talk about Kurt Warner, the REAL subject of this article!

I can't believe the ignorance of some people. If you really want to follow the bible, then you need to start walking into every business, hospital, airport, police station, fire station, etc in the country and start stoning people for working on the sabbath. That is just one of the many examples how you pick and choose what you want to believe out of the bible.

So, if God is a homosexual then it is not a sin  - your little argument goes right down the tubes. Afterall, he did wear gowns and sandals - very Height-Ashbury of him; one may even say, drifting to the Castro.

First, in my opinion this is probably one of the few post where AG preaching is possibly approiate, god was brought up in the title. However as someone who was brought up in a religious family, i learned to think for myself, now I am not saying that religious people do not think for themselves. But, in my opinion the problem is not faith, it is religion. I believe that religions teach that they are the only ones who are right and every one else is wrong. I may or may not be wrong in what I believe happens after death. I will find out when I die. Weather or not I am right or wrong, AG's preaching on other post does get old and as someone who doesn't agree with him, I will continue to engage him in friendly debate about our differing opinions, whenever he chooses to bring religion into a disscusion.

I respectfully disagree that AG's preaching was appropriate.

Don't preach to us, preach to Kurt Warner. 100%InjuryRate's headline was not directed towards God in any way, and any reasonable person would recognize that. It was in reference to Kurt's comments that he would talk to God and find out what he wanted Kurt to do.

Now that Kurt's agent is making contract demands that are, needless to say, a bit outlandish, the only logical conclusion is that Kurt must be done talking to God, and God must have told him to go out and get a ton of money.

Based on Kurt's comments and his contract negotiations, that's the only possible assumption we could make, right?

So why the hell does that make it necessary for us to have to put up with AG's same old tired BS again? It doesn't. If you notice, I said "any reasonable person would recognize" the reference to Kurt's comments. AG is many things, but a reasonable person, he is not.

As always, he took an innocuous comment, put his own spin on it, and beat it to death and completely hijacked the thread.

Regardless of anyone's opinions on whether or not his comments were appropriate, he has been warned, and if he keeps this crap up, then his comments will be deleted and/or his account will be removed.

If he wants to talk about God, then he can make his own blog posts and polls and talk until he's blue in the face.

Certainly 100%Injury has the right to post it, and there's no way I'd go so far as to ask it to be censored... but using God to make a joke got lame a long time ago.  The article's point was solid and interesting... but the level of sarcasm/jokes... not nearly so much.
I know we're in the minority these days, but just thought everyone should know there other's who agree.


And I haven't seen all the different things AmazingGrace has said, but I don't see him forcing anything down anyone's throats.  There's a big difference between forcing and voicing one's opinions.
I happen to agree with him that God's word applies in many of these same situations.  I'm sure he's not perfect, and he'd do better to try and avoid unnecessary confrontation... but man, some of you other guys get so worked up over someone who doesn't share your opinion.

If he posts constantly, that's hijacking a thread, and I'd have a problem with it too.  If he says derogatory things about a specific person on here, that's a problem too [though you might try avoiding that yourselves].
But there's all kinds of jokes and topics worked into the threads [see Obama comments above].  Is it really harming anyone that much to see another person's opinion on how this relates to God?
You may not agree, but Pat, I'm sure don't agree on the lovefest people have the for the Yankees either.  You just gotta let it go a bit.  Especially as an admin.

If it were the opposite and Christians were running a sports forum, and they constantly criticized you for your religious beliefs and took down your comments... I don't think you'd like it.

So many of you guys think you've got it figured out and all these other people in the world are wrong.  You think you've discovered the "better" way to do things.  Many people these days come to the conclusion that Christianity and other large religions are foolish.
But you know, what makes you so sure you're right?

Posts like the one about burning Hell, I can understand removing or PCing.  But man, half you guys are just as sharply negative and attacking as he is.


Perhaps we all just need to chill a bit!

I'll just stay out of it beyond this comment, though.

AmazingGrace has a history of what you just said, hijacking threads with his self-righteous preaching and judgement of others.  The late George Carlin, who is a personal hero of mine, once did a bit where he reduced the Ten Commandments down to one.  The commandment was:

Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.

We're all looking for answers, and those people who know the truth aren't talking, because they are dead.  If you believe in something higher and that makes you a kinder and more tolerant person toward your fellow humans, that's cool.  However, the elitist, arrogant clown sitting on high quoting scripture doesn't necessarily get VIP access to Heaven.

The point is, until our day comes and we find out what really happens, let's not be a douche to one another and play the "I believe harder than you so the invisible man in the sky loves me more."  Something tells me if you act like that, whoever IS running the show in the hereafter is going to be mighty pissed at your showboating.

Chilling is a fantastic idea.  That's basically the point Pat has been trying to get across to AmazingGrace all day.

When good old Kurt was last a-talkin to God, he must have missed the parable in the New Testament about how it was harder for a rich man to get to heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. After turning down that $10 mil offer, Kurt should have told them that he'd do it for just $50K to make sure that he got to heaven. By the way, this a sports website, and we happen to be discussing a hypocritical sanctimonious jock who seems to have confused God with his sports agent.

You got a good point, Pat. I really don't believe God's worried about if Warner is making 12 mil or 14 mil. A family member in an Intensive Care Unit hanging on to life is something 'to pray about', a father and mother who has been laid off, can't find a job anywhere, losing their home, and can't buy food for their children is something 'to pray about'; how many millions of dollars is God telling Kurt to ask for in order to close the deal? Not a good time to play the God card.

Kurt, if you want to get paid, fine.  But wasn't there something in the Book about it being easier to stick a camel through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven?  Don't know that the good Lord is using you as a vessel to issue a revised scripture, Bro.  Let's leave religion out of contract negotiations.  Slippery slope there:  Next a player will convert to a rastafarian and then claim the NFL is anti-religious because of its ban on ganja consumption...

Anybody that follows Kurt Warner knows how important of a role God plays in his life.  While I grow tired of guys repeatedly thanking God first and foremost when they accomplish something, I certainly dont hold that against them or think less of them unless I feel like they are trying to force there thoughts and views down my throat. 

As for Kurt getting paid, if the Arizona Cardinals want to continue the momentum they had at the end of the 2008-2009 season, then they need to ante up and sign Warner.  Warner has garnered alot of respect from his teammates who know full well that they wouldnt have gotten to the Super Bowl had it not been for him.  With Matt Linehart not being ready to take over the reigns, the Cardinals cant afford to let Warner walk just yet.  I see the two sides going back and forth for a while before they come to some sort of an agreement.

Committing that kind of money to a QB creeping up on 40 just isn't sensible, especially when you've got Leinart on the bench being paid to hold a clipboard.

I am not a religious person by any means, but that doesn't mean other people can't use it in their life. Kurt Warner was a religious man before the contract negotiations so it's not like he is busting it out now for public relations. He does a lot for his community and for charity. He isn't out getting DUI's, beating women, shooting himself in the leg at a club wearing sweatpants...leave the poor guy alone. If God is what keeps him grounded and focused, let him have it. He is one of the few doing something positive. What does an athelete need to do right these days to escape the wrath of fans? It seems like it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't consensus.

Very smart post, and those who aren't getting into trouble and creating a positive image for themselves and the league are unfortunately the ones who don't get the media attention that they deserve much more than the players who can be attributed to the crimes you mentioned.  I did find it interesting to see the verbage "wearing sweatpants" in the same line as DUI's, beating women, and shooting himself in the leg though...

Kurt Warner was a religious man before the contract negotiations so it's not like he is busting it out now for public relations. He does a lot for his community and for charity. He isn't out getting DUI's, beating women, shooting himself in the leg at a club wearing sweatpants...leave the poor guy alone. If God is what keeps him grounded and focused, let him have it. He is one of the few doing something positive. What does an athelete need to do right these days to escape the wrath of fans? It seems like it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't consensus.

He said he would pray to see if God wanted him to PLAY. He said nothing about God designating how much he would get paid to play.

Damn, this was one of the funniest and best uses of sarcasm I have read on here.  I'm sure as long as the collection plate see its' share, everyone involved will be happy.  Maybe the delay in the process has to do with the time the communications travel between the tin can that each one is holding to their ear.  At least we know that Kurt is just doing it for the love of the game though...

But people who believe God is only on their side are to be mocked loudly and consistently.  I'll go out on a limb and say Kurt Warner will be able to do more of God's work if he keeps Fitzgerald and Boldin around.  God likes good football.

Kurt Warner is a modern day Moses. He just has a better agent.
