"This always happens in America. Kobe Bryant, for example -- why does he get a two-year contract extension for $50 million? Because of what he is going to do in the next two years for the Lakers? Of course not. Of course not. He gets it because of what he has done before. It makes no sense. Why do you pay for what has already happened?"

-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann, in a December 2013 interview, alludes to his treatment of Landon Donovan. (New York Times)

    JK should avoid any mention of other sports, their players, their contracts. Now he's opening himself up to criticism from some goof named Wilbon, who is another ESPN commentator representing the dominant east coast media perspective on soccer, foreign coaches, tofu, and pink soccer cleats. Great way to stay on-message, Jurgen.

    I think JK is right, and he should not be paid 2.5 million a year for what he has done in the past. Let's put him on a bonus compensation program, pay him for results, and accept his wisdom.
