    Just giving them out because it doesn't hurt anything, cheapens the whole thing to me.

    Everybody plays to get a ring and to hand them out to people who at one point were involved with the team makes having one to everyone who has it mean less. Especially when you fired said person because you thought they were stopping you from getting it. Geez

    "Joe here's your ring, Thanks for all your hard work"

    "Pollard here is your ring, thanks for playing with 6 cracked ribs"

    "Cam here is your ring, we only got it cause we fired your ass"

    Yup makes sense to me...

    The NFL pays for the cost of 150 rings to the winning team, at roughly $5,000 apiece, depending upon the fluctuating cost of gold and diamonds. The winning team can typically present rings to whomever they choose, including usually, but not limited to: players (active roster or injured), coaches, trainers, executives, personnel, and general staff. Some teams have also been known to give rings to former players, despite not having been on the winning roster.[2][3] Sometimes a team will give rings to fans as part of a charity raffle.[4] Teams can distribute any number of rings, but must pay for any over the 150-ring limit.

    So, does Oher not deserve a ring because he couldn't cut it at LT....

    How about Rice? Pretty big fumbles in the playoffs...

    What about Pees?...even though his defense played lights-out in the redzone, they weren't close to top-10...

    Hell, who brought Evans and Cundiff here last year....I guess Ozzie deserves his ring, but it is certainly tainted, right?

    Really poor attempt at comparison. Deserves no more comments other than that.

    Cheapens the symbolism of it, not the actual value.

    I've said it before, if it were me I would not give a ring to someone I fired because I couldn't win the ring because of them. You would, okay. Truce.

    Just how your take is perceived by me...it makes about as much sense.

    Did Cam drop the ball or miss a FG in last year's AFC Championship?

    My stance makes sense to you, your only gripe is "What purpose does it serve, moving forward, to not give him a ring?"

    Cam didn't prevent them from winning the Super Bowl last year is my point. Lee Evans and Cundiff did.

    I get you're point but we're not passing rings out for last year and he would have been part of it.
