Something came up
[Over the phone]
Tell me you got lost on your way to the restaurant because I know you wouldn't stand up a friend
Something came up
[Referring to Rod's contract]
ten million dollars for four years
It's early, your still dreaming
Ten for four and it's a deal
The guy's got an attitude problem
I can help you with that he listens to me
His a shrimp
He broke every receiving record you had last year
I want a prototypical wide receiver I want someone who is six foot three inches tall, two thundered twenty pounds not someone who's five ten and bitches in the locker room
I'm asking you for a favor I introduced you to your wife, we've spent Christmases together
Don't do this, we have history
Yeah we have history, you've drove up the prices on me for years and now it's time for you to spend some time at the back of the line.
Tell me you got lost.
I thought I was your friend.
- Something came up.
- Okay. $10 million for four years.
- You're dreaming.
- Ten for four. It's a deal.
- He's got an attitude problem.
- He listens to me. I can help you.
- He's a shrimp.
- He broke all the records last year.
I want a prototypical
wide receiver who's 6'3", 220.
Not some guy who's 5'10" and bitches.
Dennis, I'm asking you...
...for a favour.
I introduced you to your wife.
We've spent Christmases together.
- Holiday cheer.
- Jerry, you're reaching.
I'm asking for a favour.
Don't do this to me. We have history.
We got history, all right.
You drove the prices up for years.
- It's your turn at the end of the line.
- Dennis, don't...
I talked with Dennis Wilburn
about your renegotiation.
Jerry Rice, Andre Reed, Chris Carter.
I smoked all these fools!
Yet they're making the big dollars.
They are making the kwan.
And you're talking.
- Kwan? That's your word?
- Hell yeah, that's my word.
Some dudes might have coin,
but they'll never have kwan.
It means love, respect, community
and dollars. The entire package.
- No, I air-dry.
Listen, Rod. I say this
with great respect for you.
But those players you mentioned
are marquee players.
- And this deal where, you know, we...
This is a renegotiation.
We want more from them.
Show them your pure joy of the game.
Bury the attitude a bit,
and show them...
- You're telling me to dance.
- No. I'm saying...
...to get back to the guy
who first started playing.
