Say it ain't so,Joe!

Prior to last nights Super Bowl, the NFL held a classy ceremony to honor all the previous winners of the Super Bowl MVP award. I assumed the ones who weren't there were ill or had some reason they couldn't be there. Nope. In Joe Montana's case the NFL just didn't offer him enough money.
The former MVPs were guaranteed $1,000 for incidental expenses while in Detroit. The NFL also provided each former Super Bowl MVP with two first-class airplane tickets, a hotel room, a Cadillac for the weekend, two tickets to the game, two tickets to the Friday night commissioner's party, two tickets to a Saturday night party and two tickets to a Sunday tailgate party. There also were opportunities for paid appearances arranged by the NFL.
Apparently, Joe wanted $100,000. Montana made millions upon millions both during and after his career trading on his reputation largely made during Super Bowls, but wouldn't give back to the game without a few more bucks.

That is disgusting to think that Joe didn't make it for that reason.

Maybe he can get fed ex to pony up for another cheesy commercial instead.

Bill - I read that Montana didn't make it because his son had a basketball game. Money was not an issue according to Montana.

And if you think about it - it would have been a snap for Montana's agent to get $100,000 just for Montana to stop by one of the corporate booths. Those jock sniffers would have ante up big time for Joe Cool
