Shayne Graham supposedly frustrated about team asking he take a discount during negotiations

The thing about Facebook, or Twitter, or any social networking site, is that when an athlete or celebrity have accounts that are available for public viewing, you're not always sure if that's really them. Blogger John Breech pulled a screen print from Shayne Graham's Facebook page, showing that is not a happy about not being given a contract extension.

"How can a team give you the franchise tag showing your value to them, but not agree to a long term deal because they want a discount. Makes no sense. Uugggghh."

Graham is playing on a one-year contract worth $2.483 million -- the average of the top-five paid place kickers in the league.

Take it for what it is. Maybe it's Graham's Facebook page, maybe not. However, what's the point complaining about this on Facebook? And why is it shocking to professional athlete that a team asks for a "discount" -- isn't that what most teams do?

Maybe this is why I'm not quite sure this is Graham's profile. It would seem uncharacteristic of him, from what we know. A man that does so much charity in the city bellowing about taking a discount just doesn't sit right. So take it for what it is. Maybe it's not him. Maybe it is.
