“We INVEST our blood, sweat, tears—our whole damn LIFE into this ‘game’ and a life is worth a lot more than ANY amount of money… The money never drove me. FREEDOM drove me…an’ that summer I wanted ABSOLUTE freedom. That’s why I had no qualms about making ridiculous demands. I’m talkin’ one-year-max-contracts-with-as-many-teams-as-I-wanted-for-the-remainder-of-my-career type demands.”
