Eagle all day. This guy hasn’t even fully matured and he is almost the best at everyting. Sepo kept calling him the best putter at Beaver State, and I’ve heard Nate and Jerm look on with disbelief at his forehand, and his backhand aint so shabby.

As a fully mature 25 year old, look out. He has a lot of composure already.

Would/could a guy like Seppo be on the radar for a monster kind of deal? Being one of the biggest faces in the whole sport on your entire continent has to have appeal. And dg is very popular there too.
Seppo is a good idea as well, I think he has some sort of stake in Prodigy. Any one know? I thought he did extra work for Prodigy's Europe division, which may mean his contract is much different than other pro discers though.

Maybe, but it's standard practice in sports contracts to describe them as the total, not the per-year amount.

Perhaps it should have a qualifier: "4-year, million-dollar contract" (or whatever it actually is).

Seppo will stay with Prodigy his whole family (multiple siblings) is very invested (employed and/or own, not sure) in Prodigy Europe.

Exactly. $1 a year over a million years still equals a million dollar contract.

Bryce Harper may have made history by getting baseball's biggest contract from the Philadelphia Phillies in February, but Mike Trout now has the biggest contract in all of professional sports.

Weeks after Harper inked a then-record $330 million deal, his fellow star outfielder has taken the cake in terms of big-money deals, landing a 12-year extension with the Los Angeles Angels reportedly worth more than $430 million.

Unless Mcbeths contract wasn't a mega deal.....

You shouldn't negotiate with or feed the trolls; deny the addict his hit of dopamine. It wasn't earned.

Everyone knew exactly what you meant and despite the 'fanboy' nature of the question, it was perfectly legitimate; total dollars/years is how such things are measured.
