cheap uggs for sale uk Urlacher tells Tribune Bears offer

Brian Urlacher wanted to finish his career with the Chicago Bears. He didn’t believe he was asking management for too much money when the team decided to cut ties with him Wednesday.

Urlacher’s agent originally approached the Bears seeking a two year deal worth $11.5 million. The thought was to aim high initially and reach a middle ground through negotiations.

wasn’t even an offer, it was an ultimatum, Urlacher told the Tribune. feel like I’m a decent football player still. It was insulting, somewhat of a slap in the face.

came back with the offer and said, is what it is, take it or leave it. It was, you want to play for the Bears, you’ll play for this. If not, then you’re not playing for the Bears. said he was willing to play for $3.5 million or even $3 million had the Bears been willing to keep negotiations ongoing.

want to be here, Urlacher said. wanted to be in Chicago. I wanted to finish here. Now that’s not possible.

whole offseason, I had a bad feeling about this situation anyway. I just wish they would have said, We don’t want you back.’ I think this whole thing is just about them saving face and trying to say that they made a run at me. That’s what I think it is. has no plans to retire and continues to explore his options. He has been in contact with numerous teams.

Despite the low offer and the team decision to move in another direction, Urlacher vowed not to be bitter over the situation.

are no hard feelings between me and the Bears organization, Urlacher said. had a great run here. I going to miss the (heck) out of my teammates. legend was born Sept. 17, 2000, when he recorded 13 tackles and a sack in his first NFL start. Thirteen seasons and more than 1,700 tackles later, the 34 year old longtime face of the Bears must now start a new chapter.

“We were unable to reach an agreement with Brian and both sides have decided to move forward,” general manager Phil Emery said in a statement. “Brian has been an elite player in our league for over a decade. He showed great leadership and helped develop a winning culture over his time with the Bears. We appreciate all he has given our team, on and off the field. Brian will always be welcome as a member of the Bears.”

Owner George McCaskey said earlier in the week he hoped Urlacher would return but made it clear he steered wide of personnel decisions.

“Over the last 13 years Brian Urlacher has been an outstanding player, teammate, leader and face of our franchise,” McCaskey said in the statement. “As Bears fans, we have been lucky to have such a humble superstar represent our city. He embodies the same characteristics displayed by the Bears all time greats who played before him and he will eventually join many of them in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We thank Brian for all he has given our team and our city. He will always be a part of the Bears family. We wish him the very best.”

Now the eight time Pro Bowl selection is left to ponder whether to continue his illustrious career elsewhere or walk away from the game with a bitter taste in his mouth. Urlacher missed the final four games of 2012 with a hamstring injury, watched his team miss the playoffs and saw coach Lovie Smith, whom he respected greatly, get fired after a 10 6 season.

The news of Urlacher departure stunned Bears players.

“He was the unquestioned leader of the defense, the team,

” said center Roberto Garza, a team captain like Urlacher. “You couldn’t meet a greater person or player. Great locker room guy. He meant so much to this team, this city.

“Coach Lovie used to say he would be the greatest superstar you will ever meet because Brian doesn’t act that way and he doesn’t want to be treated that way. He was just another guy in the locker room. Obviously, he was Brian Urlacher. He’s one of the best middle linebackers to play the game but he didn’t act that way. And he was just another guy. If you needed some help, he was there for you. He was a big part of the reason that defense has been the defense it’s been for so many, many years.”

I don care what Urlacher does in his personal life nor should anyone else. The Chicago Bears are CHEAP. Briggs and Tillman should leave as well before everything they have is sucked out of them physically and emotionally by this franchise. I suppose this franchise still thinks paying Cutler his exorbitant salary is worth it??? I think not! I been a Bears fan for 20+ years, and this blatant, disrespectful move by the Bears franchise makes me physically ill. They are just using all these guys physically with their bottom line in mind they could care less about playing with emotion and heart. Anyone who has played on a TEAM knows that without cohesion and chemistry and heart, you won win. Here to another losing season in 2013 I think I skip watching the Bears for the first time this year and instead concentrate on having a football team return here to LA.

mens slippers ugg The top 10 beach camping spots in Florida

infant uggs uk The top 10 beach camping spots in Florida

Editor’s note: This story originally appeared online in 2009. We’ve updated it slightly, but took out references to rates as they can fluctuate. Most fall under $30 for a tent site, but rise for RVs and cabin rentals. Call each individual park for those.

My friends usually decline my invitations to go camping during the summer. It’s too hot, too buggy, too this, too that, they say. Nonsense, I reply.

Florida has dozens of great beach camping spots, and most are not crowded from June through August. You just have to know where to go, what to bring and how to survive for a few days without, heaven forbid, air conditioning.

As I tell my kids, people lived in Florida for thousands of years before AC and cable TV. The trick is to get back to basics. Make your own shade, swim if you get too hot, drink plenty of water and pitch your tent where you can feel the sea breeze.

With one of the best state park systems in the country, Florida has dozens of great places to camp within a stone’s throw of the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico.

1. Long Key State Park Long Key

Long Key’s campsites are literally right on top of the Atlantic Ocean. This is the only state park where you can leave your campsite, walk 100 feet and catch a permit or bonefish. The park has several nature trails, including one for kayakers that runs through a shallow water lagoon, and 60 waterfront campsites, each with a picnic table and grill.

2. Cayo Costa State Park Boca Grande

Surrounded by water on all sides and only accessible by private boat or public passenger ferry, Cayo Costa boasts splendid isolation. With 9 miles of deserted beach to roam and explore, you won’t have to worry about crowds. The warm gulf water is great for swimming, snorkeling, fishing and kayaking. Each tent site can accommodate up to eight people. Showers, toilets and potable water are centrally located. Visitors must bring food and drink, but the extra work is well worth it. This is wild Florida at its best.3. Fort Clinch State Park Fernandina Beach

Among Florida’s oldest state parks, Fort Clinch has one of the best preserved 19th century forts in the United States. It never saw any action, but it was occupied by troops during the Civil and Spanish American wars. Located just north of Fernandina Beach off A1A, this state park has great surf fishing, swimming and a 6 mile trail for hikers and bicyclists. Fort Clinch has two campgrounds, one overlooking the beach and the other in a hardwood hammock overlooking the Amelia River.

4. Grayton Beach State Park Santa Rosa Beach

Another one of the nation’s top beaches, this state park is famous for its sunsets. After you get tired of playing in the emerald colored water, take off on one of the park’s nature trails, which weave through a windswept coastal forest that looks like a set from Lord of the Rings.

Hikers and cyclists have more than 4 miles of trails to explore, and canoeists and kayakers can check out Western Lake, a classic salt marsh. The campground has been called one the finest in Florida, and subsequently, people book 11 months in advance.5. Anastasia State Park St. Augustine

Four miles of unspoiled beach is this state park’s top draw. Anastasia hasn’t changed much since Spanish explorers made landfall here nearly 500 years ago. Besides great surfing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, the park has an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to create the nearby Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, the oldest Spanish fortress in America. Explore the dunes and stunted oak hammocks via the nature trail or paddle Salt Run, a tidal salt marsh, in a canoe or kayak. The well shaded campground is one of the best in the state system.6. Sebastian Inlet State Park Melbourne Beach

One of the premier surfing and fishing spots on Florida’s East Coast, Sebastian Inlet State Park has 3 miles of beachfront real estate. As expected, the park is popular with anglers and wave riders, but the adjacent Indian River Lagoon is also a great place to canoe or kayak. They call this the Treasure Coast because after big storms, beachcombers still find coins washed ashore from the doomed Spanish Treasure Fleet of 1715. The park’s tent campground is within easy walking distance of the beach.

7. Bahia Honda State Park Big Pine Key

Henry Flagler’s railroad from Miami to Key West put this tropical paradise on the map. Twelve miles south of Marathon, this state park has turquoise water, balmy breezes and an endless supply of sunshine that would make Bahia Honda a great location for a five star resort. Luckily for us, the land has been preserved for the public’s use, giving regular folks an easy access point to the Florida Keys’ world famous coral reefs. The park has two boat ramps and three campgrounds, which are a testament to the park’s standing as a vacation destination.8. T. H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park St. Joe

Consistently rated as one of the top beaches in the United States, this Panhandle park has some of the finest white sand in Florida. With access to the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay, canoeists and kayakers can spend a day paddling and never run out of new territory. This coastal barrier peninsula is also an international destination for bird watchers. To date, more than 240 species have been sighted. The park has 119 sites in two campgrounds: The Gulf Breeze area is open and can accommodate large vehicles; the Shady Pines area is more shaded and secluded.
