The Michael Crabtree Ordeal

Unprecedented. Unheard of. Unthinkable. Oh, and most of all, just absolutely ridiculous.

In case you haven’t heard the news, Michael Crabtree, recently drafted as the 10th pick by the San Francisco 49ers, is threatening to sit out the entire 2009 season. What’s the big deal you may ask? People threaten to sit out all the time. But get a load of this…

Crabtree is threatening to sit out the 2009 season based on mock drafts and not what really happened. Yes, that’s right. MOCK DRAFTS. As most of you know, Darrius Heyward-Bey was selected seventh overall by the Oakland Raiders, which was a shocking pick, but it happened nonetheless. So Heyward-Bey is guaranteed more money and Crabtree demands to make more than the $23.5 million the Raiders guaranteed Heyward-Bey. So what happens if this doesn’t happen? “Unacceptable.”

Sure, Crabtree might be a better wide receiver, but he was still drafted lower. Oh, and guess what his cousin has to say about Crabtree sitting out the entire season: “We are prepared to do it. Michael just wants fair market value. Michael is one of the best players in the draft, and he just wants to be paid like one of the best players.” Who is this guy? I mean, it’s one thing if his agent comes out and says this, but his cousin? Give me a break!

We here at The North End Zone think he deserves jackass of the week, if not the entire year. I mean, really, who bases their pay on a mock draft?

In a word: FAIL.
