Sports News NFL: Cutler’s Lack of Performance
The Chicago Bears have made an attempt to once again place the franchise up on the top among the big teams in the National Football League.
For the last few seasons, starting quarterback Jay Cutler has featured as the Bears’ main offensive man. Still, to some, Cutler’s numbers don’t seem to prove that he is indeed the quarterback that most believe he is.
This time it was Cutler’s former teammate Brian Urlacher who stated that the only characteristic Cutler has in regards to being an elite quarterback is the fact that he gets paid like one, but besides that, he simply hasn’t performed to fulfill this status.
Urlacher claims that although Cutler has indeed become an ideal player for the Bears, he still needs to step it up.
Bears general manager Phil Emery stated that Cutler is an elite quarterback due to all the previous success that he has had over the last years.
Emery stated that as a starting QB, Cutler has definitely performed up to standards, but that there still plenty of room to improve. In regards to how much Cutler earns, currently he stands as the best-paid QB this season.
Currently Jay earns a base salary of $22.5 million, which in fact has turned into an additional $5 million for a signing bonus.
Although Aron Rodgers did sign a 5-year, $110 million contract, currently standing the highest average annual quarterback salary of $22 million, he still has a base salary of $900,000. Yet, as of bonuses, Rodgers obtained a total of $16.2 million in bonuses.
Sports News NBA: Lottery Reform Disapproved
The league had imparted a new reform that they wished would completely change the track of the National Basketball League lottery, or at least to a certain extent.

At the end, the votes did demonstrated that at least the majority did wish for the reform was approved, ending with 17-13 in favor of the reform.
Still, according to league codes, there must be a total of 23 votes needed in order for any change to be considered official.
If such reform has been approved, the worst teams in the league would have been favored by such.
This official reform would have given the worst teams in the league about 11% chance to win the lottery, also giving the worst team in the league a total of 10%
League members who at the end decided that the reform was fair in its attempt to give equal opportunities to all teams considered this as unnecessary.
Now the league will continue to work hand in hand with teams in order to perhaps switch strategies and even perhaps introduce similar reforms.
