Peyton gets paid $105,000 to speak at Oklahoma State


Alabama coach Nick Saban got Peyton Manning’s time for free.  Oklahoma State had to pay a bit more.

According to the Tulsa World, Manning received $105,000 for a 30-minute speech and a 30-minute question-and-answer session in Stillwater.  The money was paid by the OSU Speakers Board.

So what did they get in return?  Apparently, a laundry list of fairly obvious lines that appear in any of the various motivational books that can be purchased for 99 cents on the clearance shelf.

“I challenge each of you in this arena tonight to invest your time to become a game-changer.  A game-changer looks deeper and senses something others don’t and then acts on it.”

“You either get better or worse every day.  You don’t stay the same.”

“Enjoy the journey, not the destination.”

“This is your world.  Own it.”

Actually, this isn’t our world.  It’s Peyton’s world.  The rest of us are just paying the rent.  At $105,000 per hour.

Seriously, though, we’ll never complain about a guy finding a way to get paid for his time.  We’re all worth whatever someone will pay, and OSU’s Speakers Board decided Manning is worth $105,000 per hour.  There’s not a thing wrong with Peyton collecting the cash.

But here’s the bigger issue.  At a time when the NCAA and various member institutions are fretting about how to afford the inevitable obligation to pay student-athletes, the fact that $105,000 can be scraped together by Oklahoma State for 60 minutes of cliché and rah-rah reconfirms that, when the time comes to cough up fair market value to the kids who are bringing in millions, the schools will find a way.

    What’s a “book”?

    Sounds like a baby’s educational tool.

  2. edelmanfanclub says: Apr 19, 2014 12:15 AM

    Uh no. They shouldn’t pay college athletes. They get to go to school for free and have priority in everything (classes, housing, etc). Then get a chance to be millionaires after college as long as they aren’t complete morons.

  3. hurricanegrabowski says: Apr 19, 2014 12:16 AM

    Oklahoma State? Kind of surprising, I’d figure he’d get paid by a school in Nebraska, possibly from a city named OMAHA.

  4. rajbais says: Apr 19, 2014 12:17 AM

    Mark Emmert is doing more cartwheels than Manning ever could because he doesn’t have to see Oklahoma State paying that much to any of its players.

  5. don2074978 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:20 AM

    Actually Peyton Manning also got Nick Sabans time for free also. Sounds like each got a good deal

  6. hatasgonnahate says: Apr 19, 2014 12:21 AM

    I bet he’d speak at Omaha for free….

  7. tdl8 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:23 AM

    Great way to use the students tuition money!! It’s no wonder college costs so much!

  8. hungryhungryhibbert says: Apr 19, 2014 12:24 AM

    tax payer money at work

  9. dlk47823 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:25 AM

    God bless him. I believe he was probably worth every thousand.

  10. nyctraffic says: Apr 19, 2014 12:30 AM

    I don’t know, I rather liked his line enjoying the journey. Never thought of that before.

  11. nyctraffic says: Apr 19, 2014 12:33 AM

    And Tony Robbins has made 200 million+ peddling the same dross. At least Peyton has achieved success in something other than telling others how to achieve success.

  12. jetsclaps says: Apr 19, 2014 12:33 AM

    Yeah, but hearing those words from one of the hardest working and best players in NFL history has a thousand times more impact than reading it out of a book from Joe Schmo.

  13. whatchutalkinabouthillis says: Apr 19, 2014 12:34 AM

    Waste of time. Should have got a speaker who has real world advice and experience instead of a guy who can throw a ball better than most people.

  14. raider1so1penalize1me says: Apr 19, 2014 12:34 AM

    I’d rather have Peyton deliver these cliches than read them in a book. Having one of the greatest QBs come to your school and talk/answer questions is kinda a big deal. Just sayin

  15. krunch209 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:38 AM

    This guy just made in an hour what it takes me two years to do! And that’s not even his full time job.

  16. staffordsyear says: Apr 19, 2014 12:40 AM

    What’s he gonna do with that? Play slots?

  17. darrellpotts2014 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:41 AM

    He should not accept money for giving this speech. The earnings should go into a scholarship fund for student athletes or a charity. Knowing Payton Manning…the money is probably going toward those efforts.

  18. cutlerinception says: Apr 19, 2014 12:45 AM

    Well said, Florio.

  19. mcarey032 says: Apr 19, 2014 12:45 AM

    He’s a man, he’s almost 40.

  20. biggestredmiami says: Apr 19, 2014 12:47 AM

    Any other player does this, we’d be talking about violating the league code of conduct.

  21. unfkwthabl says: Apr 19, 2014 12:47 AM


    there it is…

    nice one florio

  22. randymossblewit says: Apr 19, 2014 12:49 AM

    Brady would do it for free

  23. bennyb82 says: Apr 19, 2014 1:01 AM

    Oklahoma State: We are willing to pay 100k for Peyton to come to our school and speak to our students.

    Peyton’s Agent: Are you out of your mind? Peyton is worth at least 110k.

    Oklahoma State: 105k?

    Agent: Done

  24. tigerlilac says: Apr 19, 2014 1:03 AM

    Excellent post.

    Yes, on an individual basis players should be free to enter into agreements to get paid for their off-the-field work. I would take the analysis a bit further. What are the sources and uses of cash associated with both college and professional sports? Investigative journalism needs to follow the money in sports.

    Public money pours into these ventures and there is a real question as to whether those expenditures are good investments. A few owners, star players, and corporations seem to be making a ton of money while local governments are stuck with the expenditures to provide infrastructure, many players end up with no degree, poor job prospects, and life limiting injuries, and workers (e.g., at companies like Papa Johns) get low pay and few benefits.

  25. footballtalk1 says: Apr 19, 2014 1:07 AM

    Choking 101 @ $105,000. Yeah that’s money well spent

  26. doe22us says: Apr 19, 2014 1:21 AM

    I guess Peyton is all about that cheddar..

  27. elgranderojo79 says: Apr 19, 2014 1:42 AM

    As if his head needed to get any bigger! At 105k an hour that enormous skull has to be close to bursting.

  28. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 19, 2014 1:59 AM

    Apparently the secret to success is to get people to pay you money to let them know the secret to success.

  29. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 19, 2014 2:05 AM

    On the other hand, if even half the people in the audience go on to become Hall of Fame quarterbacks, it will be money well spent.

  30. broncohol1c says: Apr 19, 2014 2:09 AM

    I think the raiders speaker board should think about dropping 105,000 to him as well….. All goes to charity anyways

  31. cylondetector says: Apr 19, 2014 2:10 AM

    Titanium neck bolts don’t come cheap!

  32. latenightroach says: Apr 19, 2014 2:13 AM

    I’m definitely in the wrong profession.

  33. stoogy says: Apr 19, 2014 2:15 AM

    What a waste of money. 105.000 for 1 hr. Most of us don’t make that in a year. Take a football away from Peyton and what would he be? Nobody’s words are worth that much.

  34. lucydean77 says: Apr 19, 2014 2:21 AM

    Peyton Manning can`t do anything for free or at least donate the money He is supposed to be a good QB and can`t even win the Superbowl for Denver WHAT A SHAME. He has to cheat other people out of their money what a shame

  35. SkeletalDrawing says: Apr 19, 2014 2:22 AM

    Amen Florio, preach on.

  36. charlie2254 says: Apr 19, 2014 2:34 AM

    You got served

  37. henryjones20 says: Apr 19, 2014 2:42 AM

    I’ll introduce him for a bottle of grey goose

  38. rcali says: Apr 19, 2014 3:30 AM

    Last time I checked, Peyton has not been arrested for drugs, not got a DUI, not rapped any women, is not a felon, did not run a dog fighting ring out of his backyard, ran over anyone in his car while drunk, not failed any drug tests, yet somehow is headed to the nfl hall of fame. I’d say money well spent to instruct the youth.

  39. shoeflypie says: Apr 19, 2014 3:46 AM

    Methinks your envy shines through, as does your disdain for the man. Just how much do famous whozzits like Bill Clinton, Condaleeza Rice, Chris Matthews or Sean Hannity get for stopping by some gathering as the main event on the card? Peyton is pretty much at the top of his career and expertise. I suspect the $105,00 speaker’s fee is not out of line for a person of his stature. It is a whole lot more than either you or I could demand, but name recognition will do that for you.

  40. Slackmo says: Apr 19, 2014 4:01 AM

    No big deal, they can just jack up the tuition to pay for it.

  41. uglydingo says: Apr 19, 2014 4:28 AM

    This tells me that Peyton is now really all about the money. As his playing career winds down he wants to continue to earn off opportunities. He makes over $20M per year, but still needs more. One of the greatest QBs of all time has set up his shop as an endorser and motivational speaker. It’s a pity he didn’t marry a Kardashian for the TV and marketing opportunities. Archie and Kris could be Executive Producers.

  42. 4thqtrsaint says: Apr 19, 2014 4:33 AM

    Florio, well said! You do great work on this site. I am a fan.

  43. drohanimal says: Apr 19, 2014 4:34 AM

    I heard he also donated a pizza, that’s why the price was so high.

  44. posmoo says: Apr 19, 2014 4:51 AM

    The Liberal Ivory Tower give up a gravy train without a fight to the death?
    You’re crazy if you think they are gonna hand paychecks to student athletes. They may someday be remunerated for the off campus work they are prohibited from engaging in by the ncaa, but not in a million years will they be paid anything in the same universe as fair market value. Congress will outlaw the NLRB before that happens.

  45. wryly1 says: Apr 19, 2014 5:04 AM

    The reason is that football will bring more revenue and attention to Oklahoma State University than the speaker who is a PhD in AstroPhysics that is paid $5,000 plus expenses.

  46. duffer58 says: Apr 19, 2014 5:24 AM

    105,000 could have been spent about 105,000 better ways, Is this the speech he gave before Super Bowl?

  47. mzew233 says: Apr 19, 2014 5:24 AM

    I’d have done it just for the free flight and hotel.
    Oh well, their loss.

  48. lennymoorerules says: Apr 19, 2014 5:53 AM

    Mike, I could not agree with you more. I do not slam Peyton for being paid. He earned it. The NCAA and many of its member universities show no interest as ‘educators’ let alone as guardians of these kids-see Real Sports. As for Mark Emmert at the NCAA, he is a modern day Avery Brundage. The system must be corrected.

  49. delintzman says: Apr 19, 2014 5:54 AM

    Why does everyone think they know best how to spend someone else’s money?

  50. ez4u2sa says: Apr 19, 2014 6:16 AM

    What a waste of money. Somebody had to be out of their mind.

  51. chris6523 says: Apr 19, 2014 6:32 AM

    The athletic department at OSU didn’t pay for this, so the correlation between paying for a public speaker and paying student athletes is invalid. As far as paying the athletes, how are you going to get past Title IX? If you pay the football players who are bringing in millions, aren’t you going to have to pay the women’s field hockey players, rowers, soccer players, etc. who are an enormous drain on an athletic department’s budget?

  52. netrunner2k2 says: Apr 19, 2014 6:39 AM

    Certainly not the first time he was lame on a big stage.

  53. restorativejusticeprogram says: Apr 19, 2014 6:59 AM

    If Athletic Directors and coaches can be paid millions of dollars per year, it is obscene to not pay players that risk their health to make those salaries possible.

    Giving an “education” to someone who neither has the time to exploit it (because of the commitments of his sport) or, perhaps, the innate intelligence to apply (not everyone is intellectually capable of succeeding at university) is hardly fair payment. Stop the fraud of the NCAA.

  54. joetoronto says: Apr 19, 2014 7:12 AM

    But he’s such a nice guy, SMH.

  55. hawkstradamus says: Apr 19, 2014 7:28 AM

    Bet they booked him prior to the 43-8 beatdown in XLVIII

  56. peytonsneck18 says: Apr 19, 2014 7:41 AM

    dude is really greedy

  57. lscratchingthesurface says: Apr 19, 2014 7:44 AM

    Congrats to him. I hope this money goes for charity. He certainly does not need the money.

  58. ldloudin says: Apr 19, 2014 7:46 AM

    As a WVU grad, I’m watching the Mountaineers struggle in a Big XII facilities & recruiting arms race in which they can only hope to avoid being lapped by UT/OU/OSU, not to mention competing OOC w/ most of the SEC/Big 10 & a few other schools. Athlete stipends are more likely to become another means for the elite programs to separate themselves than diminish the importance of the age-old booster payola that infests & completely stratifies college athletics. I agree that the players absolutely deserve a share of the pie & it’s going to come their way but how does the NCAA (yeah. right) shrug off the Delaneys & Swoffords to make some attempt at keeping the playing field somewhat level? Inevitably, some group of DC powerbrokers will get involved & ramrod reform down the NCAA’s throat; that will make for great headlines & influence peddling but hasn’t a snowball’s chance of reforming anything.

  59. hidden202 says: Apr 19, 2014 7:47 AM

    It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Maybe Peyton Manning used every cliche in the book but it comes off how he said it if it was worth the money, especially someone like Peyton Manning.

  60. thelastpieceofcheese says: Apr 19, 2014 7:48 AM

    NFL should suspend Payton Manning 4 games for this farce.

  61. guachosporlife says: Apr 19, 2014 8:04 AM

    I’d rather hear “Omaha…Omaha!!” than other stuff.

  62. dawgturd says: Apr 19, 2014 8:06 AM

    I could give that same speech and I would only charge half that!

    Come on NCAAF give me a call!

  63. heisthejuan says: Apr 19, 2014 8:18 AM

    Peyton’s always been about that paper.

  64. pabrownsfan says: Apr 19, 2014 8:19 AM

    Good story and I couldn’t agree more.

  65. xinellum says: Apr 19, 2014 8:21 AM

    He would command at least a million if he didn’t choke in the big game. It wasn’t Jacoby Jones catch that beat them in the AFC championship game two years ago, it was the interception to Corey Graham in OT. And last year, how many points did they score, 8. The Orioles did that last night against the Red Sox. No way close to the greatest QB ever, not even the best loser as that goes to Marino and maybe Kelly. Trent Dilfer has as many Super Bowl wins. Perfect proof that individual stats don’t make you a winner. His claim to fame is he is the most overrated player in NFL history.

  66. filthymcnasty1 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:25 AM

    I charge a much more affordable $50K/hour.

  67. sellout1983 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:26 AM

    No wonder college is so expensive.

  68. jackdaniels1 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:29 AM

    Peyton picked up a Dr Phil book at the airport in order to prep for his speech. Good work if you can get it

  69. nyneal says: Apr 19, 2014 8:30 AM

    Is it any wonder the college players want to get paid? They see guys like Manning making a hundred thousand bucks for doing nothing, and they look at how much money they help bring in for these universities, and it’s no wonder they want to get paid.
    I’ve long been of the opinion the NCAA and the universities are wrought with corruption. The amount of money these college coaches make is ridiculous, and if that’s not bad enough, they force their players to wear sneakers or shoes made by companies who are paying them millions, too.
    The Penn State Joe Paterno saga was bound to happen. When any man gets as powerful as Paterno was, they succumb to the Richard Nixon philosophy that rules and laws don’t apply to them.
    It’s a joke that Oklahoma State paid Manning that kind of money, and an even bigger joke that Manning took it. How much money does one guy need? He can’t donate his time for stuff like this??
    Oh well. Such is life in the 21st century when it comes to sports. It’s all about money, and anyone who says it isn’t is a liar. Goodell keeps telling the fans he much he cares about them, but that’s a crock, too.

  70. Spencer says: Apr 19, 2014 8:31 AM

    Some people just have the mentality that you can never have too much money.

  71. valentino8100 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:31 AM

    Way to give back Peyton. Guess you needed the money?

  72. azjam says: Apr 19, 2014 8:36 AM

    No big deal, that is the going costs for a well known celebrity to speak. So this one happens to be a football player.

  73. bassplucker says: Apr 19, 2014 8:37 AM

    Obscene. For that money 3 or 4 kids could have gotten a 4-year degree without paying a cent. This country’s priorities are seriously screwed up.

  74. icewalker946 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:43 AM

    If Peyton did anything to motivate the teams we’ll know when they have a great regular season and lose in the playoffs or championship game.

  75. fantom21 says: Apr 19, 2014 8:44 AM

    It’s ok for Papa Peyton to get paid, BUT shame on the young players when they charge for autograph sessions. And shame on young marketable athletes who come out with their own brand and logos. But Peyton, keep making your money. We deem you worthy enough to take our money, all the other guys are just greedy athletes who don’t care!!

  76. classyjacklambert says: Apr 19, 2014 8:50 AM

    Did he mention papa johns during the speech?

  77. raidermike says: Apr 19, 2014 8:56 AM

    He’s been over paid for everything he does (i.e. hasn’t done) for years now.

  78. thefirstsmilergrogan says: Apr 19, 2014 8:57 AM

    this is one reason i don’t like this guy. we all know over 20 million is never enough for one year. greedy blockhead.

    he makes stupid commercials; gives apparently stupid motivational speeches to even stupider people who want to be near a star. just wonder how much it would have cost had the broncs not gotten blown out in their last game…..

  79. tictoccpthook says: Apr 19, 2014 8:58 AM

    Fishing for an issue. Peyton gets paid what he deserves. NCAA issues have nothing to do with that.

  80. tongsareinyourseatback says: Apr 19, 2014 9:04 AM

    At least Peyton has done something measurable in his life and can offer insight that has shown to work. I’d rather hear what Peyton has to say than some retired politician, from either party, who made it through life lying to people. Bill Clinton has made over $90 million dollars in speaking fees since 2000…

  81. engymassz says: Apr 19, 2014 9:05 AM

    I guess OK State wanted to learn how to choke in big games. They could have simply asked Oklahoma native, Wes Welker, that for free.

  82. wienerpop says: Apr 19, 2014 9:08 AM

    hopefully, that was separate money from an alumni pot and not money that could have went towards medical research or campus security or orchestra or the ai lab. unlikely from the sports coaches compensation committee.

  83. keepongronking says: Apr 19, 2014 9:12 AM


  84. kagey7 says: Apr 19, 2014 9:17 AM

    So why are you blaming Peyton? Not like he put a gun to their head and demanded payment. You all do know who backs Oklahoma state don’t you? Not like Boone Pickens is scrounging around for pennies. $100 thousand to him is nickels to the rest of us.

  85. moerawn says: Apr 19, 2014 9:18 AM

    I challenge you to not hate the players, but to hate the game.

  86. tongsareinyourseatback says: Apr 19, 2014 9:25 AM

    Bleacher Report listed Peyton as one of the most charitable players in the NFL. How do you know he didn’t turn around and donate the money he made from OSU? You don’t. “Income Inequality!!!!” Sheep.

  87. jayhawk6 says: Apr 19, 2014 9:29 AM

    What is the over/under that T. Boone Pickens kicked in at least 50% of the 105K?

    BTW, why worry about what he said in the speech? It should be combed for insight after the Broncos once again end a season with a loss, so we can make fun of it next year.

  88. nyctraffic says: Apr 19, 2014 9:44 AM

    That money could have paid for academic scholarships for four students the next school year.

  89. znesbit says: Apr 19, 2014 10:08 AM

    According to the Oklahoma State school paper the money was donated to charity.

  90. harrisonhits2 says: Apr 19, 2014 10:17 AM

    What a horrible waste of public money at a time when budgets are so tight. Whoever approved this expense clearly does not have the best interests of the students at heart and should be fired.

  91. qdog112 says: Apr 19, 2014 10:26 AM

    They must have booked him prior to the Super Bowl, with no out clause. Don’t we normally reserve motivational talks for the winner?

    With the colleges arguing about playing the real earners, that’s one they could have passed on. If they had to have a NFL player, it should have been Russell Wilson or Malcolm Smith – the MVP.

  92. qdog112 says: Apr 19, 2014 10:44 AM

    There’s a military vet sleeping under a bridge with a more compelling story, who would speak for a lot less.

    That would be more educational and enlightening, but we don’t like to hear from our used up heroes. They’re treated the same way college player who runs out of eligibility.

  93. tigerlilac says: Apr 19, 2014 11:00 AM

    He didn’t just get paid for an hour of work. There was an initial inquiry by the speakers bureau, a negotiation, setting up the logistics that worked for both parties, travel to and from Oklahoma, time to prepare his speech, and the speech itself. For most of us it is a lot of money to pay but there was a willing buyer and seller of services that set the price.

  94. tigerlilac says: Apr 19, 2014 11:05 AM

    If Peyton gave the money to charity, he should be commended. If we all worked as hard and thoughtfully as Peyton the world would be a better place. Personally, I have a more secular and scientific take on life but respect that Peyton’s faith is a driving force in his life, a life that has affecting many other lives. He certainly has given us football fans some great times.

  95. orangecrush823 says: Apr 19, 2014 11:05 AM

    The Raiders should see if Peyton can fit them into his schedule… might help those guys out..

  96. abqhawk says: Apr 19, 2014 11:07 AM

    So which number set is more meaningful,

  97. orangecrush823 says: Apr 19, 2014 11:08 AM

    going to silence the Legion Of Buffoons this year…

    edelmanfanclub says: Apr 19, 2014 12:15 AM

    “Uh no. They shouldn’t pay college athletes. They get to go to school for free…”

    This is a really tired argument.

    The schools have been giving this “perk” to athletes for many decades. Has anything changed for the schools in those many decades?

    If paying players is absurd, then why are coaches making north of $6M/ year, if all they are doing is mentoring STUDENT-athletes?!

    So schools now get to collect advertising money, tv fees, merchandising, increased ticked prices, etc, etc. Which totals in the Billions of dollars. And the “students” on scholarship get the same deal they did in 1915? Yeah, that’s fair?!

    Some schools are making more money than NFL teams (tax free!), and you think it’s fair that all they have to pay the players is tuition (for an education they can barely take advantage of), room and board.

    That is the equivalent of the Patriots paying Brady $25K a year and saying, “after your career you can maybe get a great job paying you $40k, but hey – don’t work too hard in the classroom. Football comes first!”

    I feel sorry that your life is so small, that you begrudge talented young men their fair due.

  99. aldog83 says: Apr 19, 2014 11:17 AM

    Peyton encouraged the youth to go out and buy as many Papa Johns Pizza places as possible.

    Also buy a piece of the Memphis Grizzlies.

    Once you have your degree..

    All this is attainable…


  100. jimjets says: Apr 19, 2014 11:29 AM

    Isn’t Oklahoma where the phrase “there’s a sucker born everyday” was coined?

    I bet there are english and history and science teachers at that school who don’t have anough books and materials for their students too.

    Absolutely ridiculous world we live in. Oh well, PM wins….just not the Super Bowl.

    He enjoyed his ” journey” to the SB with all those regular season stats honors, but when he reached his “destination” he choked. He can charge whatever he wants to speak if people are stupid enough to pay it, but he won’t win the SB.
    43 – 8 scoreboard, forever in that greedy head.

    Uh no. They shouldn’t pay college athletes. They get to go to school for free and have priority in everything (classes, housing, etc). Then get a chance to be millionaires after college as long as they aren’t complete morons.

    I see your point. But what if that student athlete injures himself so badly it affects the rest of his life(paralyzed,back injury) and hes unable to make the money he wouldve had he gone pro? Not only would the school drop him, but now hes left with an injury that he has to deal with the rest of his life without the ability to make “millions” even if hes not a complete moron. I’m not saying the schools should pay them a lot but the amount of money big time athletes make for these schools is incredible. they should be compensated for it more than just the education. Which generally speaking costs the university very little money

    I think it would’ve been funny if Peyton would’ve audibled every time he changed subject during his speech.

    “So in short, life is what you make it……..WHISKEY CALL PAPA BEAR BLUE OVER OMAHA! OMAHA!!! …You know when I was young my Dad gave me the best advice…”

    They should have had Richard Sherman follow him up so they get the whole story.

  105. j0esixpack says: Apr 19, 2014 12:32 PM

    Geeze – that’s a lot

    To put it in perspective that’s like 4 days of pocket change for Jim Irsay

    A LOT!

    No amount of money can erase 43-8.

    $105,000? Was $100,000 not enough? It is nothing compered to what former Presidents get. Just think how much coin President Obama will get after office.

    Last time I checked, Peyton has not been arrested for drugs, not got a DUI, not rapped any women, is not a felon, did not run a dog fighting ring out of his backyard, ran over anyone in his car while drunk, not failed any drug tests, yet somehow is headed to the nfl hall of fame. I’d say money well spent to instruct the youth

    Check out what he was accused of doing in college!!!

    I challenge each of you in this arena tonight to invest your time to become a game-changer. A game-changer looks deeper and senses something others don’t and then acts on it.”


    I think he is talking about Mike Tomlin

  113. vltrophy14 says: Apr 19, 2014 6:17 PM

    Peyton has earned the right to be pd that kind of money. Those of you who think otherwise I’m 100% positive you guys would turn the money down & speak for free. Did u hear the sarcasm in that last sentence?

  114. bobsnygiants says: Apr 19, 2014 6:39 PM

    he is not worth 5000 a30min. speech.

  115. mackcarrington says: Apr 19, 2014 6:48 PM

    How much would he charge to speak in Omaha, Nebraska?

  116. jimmyjames65 says: Apr 20, 2014 4:13 PM

    I think he is talking about Mike Tomlin. Good one. I’m rolling.

  117. jimmyjames65 says: Apr 20, 2014 4:15 PM

    “Enjoy the journey, not the destination.” That has to be the only way he can put playoff failure into words.

  118. laughingwillow says: Apr 21, 2014 10:30 AM

    How much would the school pay for a quarterback who was good in the playoffs?

  119. electricboogalo says: Apr 21, 2014 6:42 PM

    They should have just bought $105,000 worth of pizza for the students.

  120. patsfan112 says: Apr 21, 2014 6:49 PM

    What did he tell the students? How to flop in the Super Bowl?

  121. BigAlHeBDMan says: Apr 22, 2014 1:05 PM

    How much did he get paid when he hosted Saturday Night Live?

  122. floratiotime says: Apr 23, 2014 9:53 AM

    Does there ever come a time in a Manning’s life when they have enough money?

  123. packergator says: Apr 25, 2014 9:43 AM

    Gotta make up for not getting that SB bonus money…

  124. drbrown7451 says: Apr 26, 2014 12:14 AM

    So, Peyton got paid $105000 to speak at OSU. And?
