    Hey man they placed Foley on the RESERVE/NON-FOOTBALL related injury list. This is the same as IR'd.

    This guarantees his base salary for one year. I have read 50% or whatever but my reads are 100% and he does not count against the 53 man squad.

    People are missing the fact that the guy got a DUI a few months ago, and to have it happen again so soon... Didn't he get two arrests in Cincy as well?

    Regardless of whether or not the cop screwed up, Foley was driving drunk before the ink dried on his last DUI. The guy has major alcohol problems that need to be addressed, and the team needed to take action.

    That's BS. Those fox guys are just doing what fox guy do--saying outlandish crap to get ratings.

    Whether the shooting was Foley's fault or not, it's clear that he has a problem with alcohol, and being removed from the game so he can get some help is the best thing they could have done for him. I laud the Chargers for taking the right stance on this. It might be bad for the football team, but it's the right thing to do for Steve. This is an example of the organization considering the long-term well being of a player over the performance of the team. If only every employer could be so compassionate.

    Actually by doing so, he receives NO SALARY for this season whatsoever.

    He doesn't get his $775K base salary.

    Nor does he get that $850K roster bonus for being on the active roster for week 1.

    So, Foley loses $1.625 million this season by being put on the R/NF injury list.

    That's all he had to do.

    I agree :)

    I think there is going to be a ruling on the base salary.....a recent example would be Kellen Winslow to see what happened there .....

    BUT what does the new CBA say about this issue ? I am not so sure it is a slam dunker.

    For a website that called this vote a "SPAMOTHON" and doesn't want to be part of it. They sure are working hard. At this point it I'll takes hundreds of votes to move one percentage point and they have moved 4% today. Whatever.
