Whatever the mix up, skins.com are super happy to point it out!

It's nice to have mulitple sources--the Post has been weak lately, but no doubt at some point they'll have something that the skins don't want us to know. My attitude is great, the more info I can get, the better. How else am I gonna waste my time in the offseason?

What I like about the Washpost article: "believes the defense has a strong case"

"Sharpstein said he expects Taylor to be at Redskins Park by late April -- offseason organized team activity practices likely will not begin until May -- and believes the defense has a strong case. The case has been continued several times since September, but Sharpstein said he expects it will go to trial as scheduled next month.

Then I went to http://www.redskins.com/ where both Mark Brunell and Larry Michael report that Sean was infact at Redskins Park working out. What the hell? This is like the 2nd or 3rd time within a month that the Post is WRONG. Why should fans even bother with the Post if they are going to be Wrong atleast once a month.

Thank God for the Warpath...
Do you think that they made up the quote from the attorney?

I think this whole thing with the WP is a huge non story. Its a credible source, it turned out not to be true. redskins.com sure is milking this like a 6 year old though.

Taylor Makes It to Redskins' Camp
By Jason La Canfora and Howard Bryant
Washington Post Staff Writers
Tuesday, March 28, 2006; E03

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor reported to Redskins Park for an offseason workout yesterday, a day after one of his lawyers said he would not attend because he needed to prepare for his trial next month in Miami.
Taylor was unavailable for comment. His attorney, Richard Sharpstein, said, "Sean felt he needed to be with his team."
"We decided we didn't need him to be here," Sharpstein said in a telephone interview from Miami. "Sean was comfortable with where we were with the case, and we'll handle it down here and he can work with us on the weekends."
Taylor, 22, goes on trial April 10. He is facing felony assault charges and a misdemeanor count of battery after being arrested last June for allegedly pulling a firearm on three people he believes stole two all-terrain vehicles from him.
Sharpstein said Sunday that Taylor would be unable to attend the voluntary workouts at Redskins Park. "Sean is working out on his own and he's working with us to prepare for the trial as well," he said. "It's necessary for him to be here working with us, and he'll be back in Washington as soon as possible."
However, Taylor was one of several prominent players, including newcomers Brandon Lloyd and Antwaan Randle El, who arrived yesterday morning in Ashburn.
Last spring, Taylor skipped the Redskins' offseason program to remain in Florida. Coach Joe Gibbs and other team officials were eager for Taylor to participate in workouts at Redskins Park this spring -- which generally run from Tuesday through Thursday each week.
Sharpstein said Monday that Taylor is expected to participate fully until the time of his trial, which could last several days.
Lloyd had not been expected to attend the workouts yesterday because, despite being traded March 11 from San Francisco for a third-round draft choice this season and a fourth round choice next year, he does not have the new contract that was part of the trade negotiations that brought him to the Redskins.
He said one of the reasons he attended was his confidence that his representatives and the Redskins will have a deal completed by next week. Under his current deal, which will pay him $1.6 million, Lloyd will be eligible for free agency after the 2006 season.
"I know it was a surprise," Lloyd said, smiling, "but I'm here."
Redskins Notes: Linebacker Chris Clemons arrived eager to begin workouts. With the departure of LaVar Arrington and the Redskins showing patience in looking to free agency for a weak-side linebacker, Clemons, who missed the playoffs with a knee injury, has a chance to win Arrington's former job. . . . Mark Brunell, Clinton Portis, Shawn Springs, Lloyd, Randle El, Santana Moss, Ladell Betts, David Patten, Lemar Marshall, Chris Samuels, Chris Cooley and Andre Carter were at Redskins Park. . . . The Redskins re-signed restricted free agent guard Derrick Dockery. . . . The NFL awarded 32 compensatory draft choices to 19 teams for players lost in free agency last year. The Redskins were awarded a seventh-round pick.

Re: What doe the Washington Post have against the Redskins?

Nothing to do with Taylor, but as a kid the Washington Post was the only source of Redskins news. The Sports section was packed with info, stories and back stories. These days its pretty skeletal. Online is pathetic coverage and print version is lackluster in this day and age of information. I count on thewarpath.net for a combination of ALL Redskins news. Thanks to all Warpathers!!! Post has been slacking for a few years since the seat debate happened. As far as redskins.com has developed in the last 3 years.... A plus plus!!! Remember when? Bucs site killed ours? Redskins.com the best out there right now!!! GO SKINS!!!

It sounds like Taylor and his attorney had a miscommunication.

I still believe the post is the best place to get analysis on the team...Wilbon, Boswell, Wise and Tony. K. are the best in town.

The Post was the only source of info on the team for many, many years. Now in the age of computer technology more people rely on internet sources for their information. Even now for people who do not have computers, and are in the area wanting info on the skins the Post is probably their only source. The post did rectify the report on ST in todays issue. Sounds like ST and his attorney got their wires crossed.
