God it would be nice just to not see that god damn primo commercial anymore.
It is this kind of attitude - "the teams owe nothing to the players" - that turns them into mercenaries and makes their working environment less than ideal, to put it mildly. Have you ever worked for a company that treats the employees in that fashion? Would you want to?
