Fans, dummies that we are, drive the market value of athletes so high that we basically exist to pay player salaries. Don't blame Joe Flacco, Tony Romo, or Alex Rodriguez, though. They're just taking money that team owners would otherwise steal. We understand the frustration of living life in a cubicle, while Mark Sanchez dates his way through lower Manhattan and spends more on bottle service then you'll make this year. But if you're truly committed to dragging salaries down, stop consuming.
