Worst free agent reasons

A friend and I were talking about when Pete O'Brien signed as a free agent with the Mariners way back when and he said he chose the Mariners because he wouldn't feel any pressure to win. So, what is the worst reason you have heard for a free agent either choosing to sign with or not sign with a particular team?

Mark Messier in Vancouver signed a 5 year, $30 million (with a $2 million buyout after 3 seasons). Picked Vancouver because "he wanted to end his career in a Canadian city, and not about the money"... and from there we all know what happened to the Canucks after Messier and Keenan got their fingers into the organization. Still despise that guy for what he did to the Canucks.
