70Chip Presents the #56Fanatic "Does LaVar Deserve Special Treament" Poll

Some say that LaVar deserves better (perhaps special) treatment because he's been with us through the lean years and was once our best player. (and may still be if he could stay healthy). LaVar has been loyal and we should show him we'll go the extra mile for him.

Others say...so what. Bottom line is we were bad and now we're better and we've shown that we can win without him and his huge salary. We need to do what's best for the Redskins, not LaVar

What sayest thou?

Better?
Better than what? Who?

Does he deserve better than me? I voted NO.

None of know the real story of what's going on.

Good point. I guess what I meant was do you take into consideration what he's meant to the team and community and figure out a way to make him happy (perhaps more so than you would another player) or do you say LaVar is just one person on the team and regardless of what happened five years ago that shouldn't have any bearing on what is decided this spring.

Re: 70Chip Presents the #56Fanatic "Does LaVar Deserve Better" Poll

I haven't weighed heavily on this decision mainly because there's so many factors that we don't know. We don't know how well LaVar will play with the offseason to strengthen his knee and get back into true "game shape". I believe he can be dominant if he can continue to learn the system and play the way GW asks him to play because God knows the talent is there.

That aside, we DON'T know if that would happen. Just from watching the games towards the end of the season, I saw LaVar (for the most part) be in position, make plays and generally be a good team player. Granted, he had a few lapses and missed tackles, but who didn't?

Because of all this uncertainty I voted "No", just because I fall into the same group of people who feel his contract is what keeps me from wanting him here and him deserving special treatment. In addition to that, anyone who shoots off at the mouth like he does, does not deserve special treatment.

Yes, LaVar, you're a charismatic guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve and someone who knows JUST all the right things to say. BUT, if you're in the headlines every other week with things you are implying, you don't deserve anything special.

Hell no

No single player is above the team.

Nobody deserves any special treatment, EVER. Nobody is bigger than the team, nobody is more important than the team. Lavar should get treated like everyone else.

Re: 70Chip Presents the #56Fanatic "Does LaVar Deserve Better" Poll

Nobody deserves special treatment. I am by no means anti-LaVar. Personally, I'd love to see the guy restructure to a deal which is "fair" for both parties. I realize that is a loaded term, but ultimately I'd like to see LaVar stick with us long enough to get a ring & retire a Redskin. How about it Lavar?

LaVar has been a loyal Redskin, despite being a little too outspoken. I hate to see him go, but it seems like a done deal.

Re: 70Chip Presents the #56Fanatic "Does LaVar Deserve Better" Poll

im the first to vote yes.......even tho i agree witht hte fact that the team comes before the player, but a couple yrs ago he was the face of our franchise, he was good when we sucked and hes good now that were good, aanyone who was ever the face of the franchise should get BETTER* treatment than a player who just "showup." also he got that big a contract b.c "HE CAN PLAY"..... he performed this season even after the problems he had with coaches and front office....( contract greivence, being benched, media, comming off season ending injury) he deserved his pay............honestly how many big plays have u seen holdman make?......hes jst an average person who plug the gaps when he was supposed to. when LA was in he made big plays...he had more TFL then any redskin on the team this season and he oplayed 1/3 of a season.......

Year Team GP/GS T S Sack PD FF FR INT Yds TD
2005 Redskins 13/8 53 45 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
2004 Redskins 4/2 18 10 1 1 0 0 0 0 0
2003 Redskins 16/16 116 71 6 10 7 2 0 0 0
2002 Redskins 16/16 107 73 11 8 4 3 0 0 0
2001 Redskins 14/14 118 76 0.5 6 0 2 3 120 1
2000 Redskins 16/11 73 53 4 4 0 0 0 0 0
Total 79/67 467 335 22.5 30 11 7 3 120 1

2005: Arrington played in 13 games and started eight, recording 53 tackles (45 solo). He also started two games in the playoffs, recording 12 tackles and one interception with a 21-yard return.
(http://www.redskins.com/team/profile)

these stats show that the guy can play.....look at his sack column in 03' when he was 100% he has the ability to make the big play! hes fast, he can hit, he can get off his blocks, the only thing that slows him down is his so called "freelancing" and this season since he did a lot better job executing the play call, he didnt make the big plays he usually did when "freelancing".........work with LA! work with him to rework his contract..........this guy is a "core guy" as u guys love to ssay and love for gibbs to have........you want "core guy" its this guy...........micheal irvin used to run his mouth to the media also look at him now.....what im trying to say is no ones perfect and this guy talks with, and plays with emotion.........

I love Lavar as much as the next guy, but he does not deserve anything special. Business is business and nothing is personal. People like Lavar get cut every year from their football team. Will I miss him, YES.

Re: 70Chip Presents the #56Fanatic "Does LaVar Deserve Better" Poll

He should be on this team and he won't be getting special treatment. Lavar will be a pro bowler again. I don't get understand all that CBA stuff but if lavar will restructure it isn't anything "special"; it will be deserved. Its not like because he was the face of the team he will be getting a new contract but rather because he has the ability to be the face of the team in the future. Lavar is the man.
