Famous sports persons are paid heftily for their superior performance. They are not just paid only for their performance but also for their huge fan following. Businesses believe that they can promote their products by advertising their brand name in the matches played by the popular sportspersons. However, if the player does not perform or his team does not perform as expected, then the concerned player or team may face a pay cut. Such an incident has been in speculation after the poor run of Buffalo Bill, a popular American Club Football team.
There has been a talk that the star player of the team, Mario Williams, would receive a pay cut from his whopping salary of $19.9 million. However, the player is not willing to take the pay cut for next season, and he blamed the team’s coach Rex Ryan for his defensive scheme. Mario Williams said indirectly that he cannot be responsible for the loss happening due to the coach’s defensive strategy. With the recent loss, Buffalo Bill was expelled out from the playoff competition for 16 seasons continuously.
Coach of the team Rex Ryan told the players that there will be drastic changes if the team does not perform better in the upcoming matches. He said that the players have to prove themselves in the next two upcoming matches. It is not only from Mario Williams, but other players have also questioned the defense of Rex Rylan and his adjustments. It has to be noted that Williams has already warned Alex’s plan in October.
However, the comments and criticism do not seem to shake the Alex and he seems to stay firm on his idea. The instance of a rift between players and coaches is nothing new as they have been happening for a long time. Sammy Watkins, who is Bills’ wide receiver, also conveyed his disappointment to the reporters during the post-match conference. He said that the team is new, and players are slowly getting known to each other.
