Written by Ben Pogany
When it comes to sports milestones, there really is nothing quite like the 3,000 hit club.  We don't have a 20,000 point club or a 100 touchdown club; in other sports, it's just numbers.  In baseball, it's a rite of passage.  But even within a sport obsessed with every stat from RBI's to VORP, the 3,000 hit club trumps them all.  Sure, we have so called "clubs" for 500 home runs, 300 saves, going 30 and 30 and so on, but none carry quite the prestige and fanfare as hitting 3K.  Entering the 3,000 hit club is like being given baseball's green jacket, an induction ceremony of sorts for baseball's truly elite batsmen.  One can only imagine the 20 living members meeting in some secret fortress once a year like the Stonecutters, tugging on the game's unseen strings for their personal amusement (As if Jim Joyce was acting alone...)  Not hard to see why this is the one fraternity every Little Leaguer shoots for from the day they can pick up a bat. Sadly, as the next two prospective entrees can evince, some just don't know when to stop shooting....

Call me crazy, but the first thing I thought of upon hearing the news of Peyton’s dismissal was that scene at the end of The Godfather, when Abe Vigoda’s character is pleading for his life after selling Michael out to the rival Barzini Family.  “Tell Mike it was only business.  I always liked him.”  But hey, maybe I’m being too harsh in comparing the NFL to the criminal underground.  At least in the Mafia, this breach of loyalty is the exception instead of the rule, a virtue instead of an outdated vestige from a bygone era.  (And when a bounty is taken out on someone, I’ll bet the compensation’s better.) 

However, what’s to follow in this Manning saga is more likely going to resemble the third Godfather than the first.  Peyton wasn’t just a great player, he was an Indianapolis institution.  Seeing him in a different uniform, like with Montana, Favre, and Rice before him, seems almost unthinkable.  Call it the Godfather III effect.  Same guy we've known all along, but it just feels wrong.  It’s that final chapter most fans wish they could pretend never happened.

In today's cutthroat NFL, the franchise lifer is becoming more and more of an endangered species. All along, it seemed like Peyton could be that guy, a throwback to the age before athletes were little more than mercenaries.  Sadly, even he couldn't overcome business as usual.  Here are the few remaining relics for whom it always felt exactly as it should.


The 25 Greatest NFL Players to Spend Entire Career With One Team Since The Dawn of Free Agency (Roughly 1990-Present)

Shaq Diesel has finally run out of gas. Luckily, short of pulling an Antoine Walker, the newly deemed Big 401k is set for several lives to come.  In a now classic bit, Chris Rock quipped “Shaq is rich.  The white man who signs his checks…is wealthy.” Maybe its just me, but I gotta think that distinction dissolves somewhere around the quarter-billion mark.  This is a guy who made more in his NBA career than Jordan, Bird, Kareem, Wilt and Russell combined.  And that’s not even counting all that Shaq Fu paper. 

Other than teammate Kevin Garnett, Shaq is in another stratosphere when it comes to career NBA earnings.  Kobe might have an extra ring, but the Shaqtus has an extra $70 million.  Seriously.  Shaquille O'Neal has made 70 million dollars more than the third highest paid athlete in the history of the NBA.  Anyway, with all this talk of money, it seemed like a pretty good excuse to put together a list of the highest career earners in NBA history.

------------The $100 Million Club (Updated through 2013-2014 season) 
  1. Kevin Garnett — $315,372,398
