Ok, call me a cynic, but both of those deals are worth 12+ million per year. At what point are we going to want professional sports to come back to being about love of the sport and not love of the green?

I feel like that too but only sometimes. The $amounts may be outrageous by all standards but it isn't a new phenomenon for players to want more money.
DiMaggio's luster was sometimes dimmed by salary disputes. In 1937 he hit .346 with 46 home runs and 167 r.b.i. and the following year he held out for $40,000, but was forced to sign for $25,000. DiMaggio's holdout lasted a couple of weeks into the season; when he returned, he was booed.
