I just hate it. $2 million, for what? Absolutely nothing at this point; it's a gift for playing well in HS or college... a gift.
This must be our day to agree, TB. I loathe this crap. Paying $2 million to a 20 year old or an 18 year old for that matter is basically like flushing millions upon millions down the john.
There's got to be a better way.
