Why does the NFL allow player to re-negociate their contracts?

It is sad that the business of Football has gotten in the way of the sport and that players believe that they are bigger than the game. I our daily lives, we sign a contract, and are obliged to live up to it or face serious repercussions. Why are football players allowed to bail out of contracts, and get a better deal? Teams need to stop bending to players and if they do not perform, take them to court and get all their bonus money and other compensation back. The fans are fed up.

    i agree even if the player over perform his current contract.

    players should play with their team until their contract expires. why would they sign their contract if they weren't happy about it.

    they should at least make their earning based on their performance that way they don't have to renegotiate and reconstruct their current contract.

    like burress and packers running back grant .they are asking more money now because they think they played so good last year and deserve more money. why ??? why didn't they ask for the money when they first signed the first contract.

    i dont get, but i hate it when players dont report to training camps and start whining about contracts THEY SIGNED.

    The fans maybe fed up, but they pack the stadiums to the brim on Sunday. The NFL has never been more profitable as it is now. Jerry Jones is building a billion dollar stadium. Going to a Cowboy game is going to get real expensive very soon.

    i'm not thinking approximately activities stars and tattoos. not to point finding vegan ink. i think of the NFL could enable gamers to have their tattoo's seen. i decide for the Michael Vicks, Pacman Jones' and Ricky Williams' sort of gamers out of the NFL. i could care much less that the linebacker has an American flag on his arm. I care greater he's working a canines combating ring or failing drug checks like this is his activity

    Because it is an unpredictable game. Just like teams are allowed to cut players, and only pay a portion of their contracts.

    If I agreed to a 50k dollar a year salary programming computers, and some company offered me 100k a year later, I would be able to take it. Why shouldn't they receive a similar deal?
