What Is the Problem? Dickerson Only Wants Top Pay for Top Work

October 31, 1987

I'm probably the last person in Southern California who still admits openly to being a Ram fan. I continue rooting for them even after each year ends in failure. This year, the biggest failure is Eric Dickerson's inability to grow up and assume some responsibilities for his actions. I'm so tired of these prima donnas saying they're not being paid enough and they want to renegotiate their contacts. Why should management even bother to listen to them once they have signed on the dotted line.

Steve Garvey is a perfect example of a true sports hero. He signed a contract and lived by it for years even though he was worth a lot more. You never heard a word from him until his contract was up.
