Clayton Reminds Us His “Check Is In The Bank”October 12th, 2009
Joe suspects Michael Clayton has direct deposit. He wouldn’t want to risk dropping his weekly paycheck with all those zeros.
Clayton, in an effort to explain his attitude toward his many critics, reminded Bucs nation that his $10 million of guaranteed money is safe and secure.
When asked his reaction to critical fans who point to the team’s decision to re-sign him to a five-year, $26 million contract, Clayton accepted there would be some. But he doesn’t agree with them.
“I ain’t worried about that,” he said. “People who say stuff, they’re not out there on the field. Nobody who writes (stuff) or says (stuff) can say anything about a player because they’re not on the field. It’s real serious out there. That’s why I don’t pay any attention to that stuff because the mentality is that you make up for it and you come back and catch the next one. I mean, regardless of what they say, the check is in the bank. That’s not changing. It’s about this team right now. Nothing can break that or make me feel bad or worry because somebody’s talking about me in the paper. We just have to keep our heads.”
Forgetting for a moment about Clayton all but putting the dirt on his Buccaneers grave with this comment and his performances, Joe finds it absolutely hilarious that Clayton has the genitalia to say nobody is going to “make me feel bad.”
This is the same guy who said 100 different ways that Chucky made him feel bad, broke his confidence, etc.
Before this quote, about 72 percent of readers of JoeBucsFan.com were in favor of cutting Clayton today.
Joe suspects that number would be much higher if there was a new vote.
