In some ways I get his teammates being pissed at him, especially if he said he was coming back, since some players, like offensive linemen don't really get stats and a lot of their rep is built upon team success and the overall success of the skill players, so Bell's absence could negatively effect their future earnings, but fuck any player that takes management's side in a pay debate with a player. The Steelers and any NFL team are going to use up every millimeter of tread on the player's tires, particularly running back. There is no way Bell should risk his future earning potential for an NFL team to abuse him like the Steelers have done. You can't tell me that what happened to Shazier doesn't lurk in the back of Bell's mind. Impressive that the Steelers were able to get players to take management's side.
