Rock On: A bill for Carlos Boozer

British soccer team Macclesfield Town was looking for a way to raise cash, so it came up with a unique plan: Allow a fan to play in a preseason match for a $15,000 fee.

Forty-year-old James Gorfin took up the offer. All went well until he pulled a groin 10 minutes into the match. So the whole deal cost him $1,500 per minute.

Which raises an intriguing prospect: When a player gets hurt, why not have him pay the club, instead of the reverse?

By that measure, Rock On figures Carlos Boozer owes the Jazz at least $30 million.

as usual, after reading Rock On, I think, "I can't get those 5 minutes back, can I."

@ Osgrath - make sense on the title "The Big Hurt" but nothing about Boozer.
