Deep down he's hurt, he knows it. Welcome to the NFL, LaVar, it's a cold business.

'No comment' is so underrated.

Because the press asked him the question thats why.:smashfrea

He will make a game changing play. Instead of covering Cooley he will let him go free. Brunell will find Cooley for a big gain to seal the game.

I don't want to hear one more person on this site say another good thing about Lavar. He is the enemy. Plain and simple. If he blows out his knee in training camp, I couldn't care less.

Teams cut players to benifit themselves as far as money goes, so why do people get so pissed off when a player accepts a better deal financially. Especially when they are 28 to 29 years old and its probably the last pay day they are going to get. At least the last one of any significance. Its a business. I was pissed when they let him go, when they didn't come to an agreement as to what was fair for him and for the team. But, this is what happens in todays NFL. You cant expect a guy to accept 4 million a year, when they can get 7 or 8 million. None of us would. that would be the most rediculous thing ever. There were things like playing time that played a role in him leaving as well. He knew he probably wasn't going to play as much as he felt he should. Other teams were telling him he was an everydown player. As a professional athelete you want to compete every single play. He know his relationship with Danny, and the staff was straighned to say the least. Why are professional athletes considered unloyal or pieces of shit if they leave. Tell me that if your company was low balling you by 100k and another company was willing to pay you what you felt you were worth, are you going to stay. I think NOT! Money is the mover, motivator, the talker for everything and everyone. Cant we just forget about the crap and start thinking of who is going to be playing there instead of the person that used to play there. so he put it behind him, doesn't everyone.
The problem is that no one buys season tickets to watch Lavar Arrington. You buy tickets to cheer the franchise. How much f-ing money did Lavar make for the last two years in which he didn't do sh!t except beat up on San Francisco and let Frank Gore run 80 yards. Why can't he shut his mouth?

Lavar's legacy is that he talks a big game and looks the part of a superstar. At the end of the day he is a loser. Greg Williams has no place for losers on that defense.

Hey remember I didn't start the thread.





Arrington Segways to First Camp as Giant
Big Blue's tech-savvy linebacker eager to get started.
By Aron Angel, Giants.com

July 27, 2006

ALBANY, N.Y. - Watching the Giants players move into their new living quarters here at the University at Albany, you see a wide array of vehicles. Of course you have your SUV’s—mostly Escalades and pickups—convenient for moving a month’s worth of clothing and accessories up from the Tri-State area. There are also the expected sports cars—Mercedes Benzes, BMW’s and the like. Michael Jennings did his best to attract attention by showing off his green ‘95 Chevrolet Caprice, outfitted with 26-inch rims on wheels that raise the car about three feet off the ground.

Then there was Lavar Arrington, turning heads by riding up to his dorm this morning on a Segway.

“I have 48 acres at my home in Annapolis,” said Arrington. “So when I’m feeding my dogs and different things like that, instead of walking back and forth the whole time, you jump on that. Or when I go down to the dock. I crab a lot. I like crabbing.”

So if you come up to Albany in the next month to watch the Giants practice, don’t be surprised to see Arrington riding around campus on two wheels.

“If I can’t get a ride, if I need some early attention to my body or anything like that, I’ll probably just jump on that,” he said. “I just don’t want to use any gas.”

And while the rest of Arrington’s teammates will be paying over three dollars a gallon to drive back and forth from the practice field, the environmentally and fiscally conservative Arrington will be plugging his Segway into the wall every night.

“I don’t want to concern myself with trying to get to a gas station when I can plug in,” he said. “I value the dollar. I really do. If I don’t have to go fill up on gas, if I can’t hitch a ride, I’ll just jump on my little (Segway).”

The only question that remains is what Coach Coughlin had to say about Arrington’s new piece of technology.

“He already saw it,” said Arrington. “We already talked.”

As long as he avoids any deer-something his teammate Sam Madison wasn’t able to do on his drive up to training camp.

“He hit a deer,” Arrington said of Madison, who, riding with teammate Gibril Wilson, apparently collided with a small deer while driving on I-87 last night. “I don’t think I’ll be moving fast enough for me or the deer to be in any kind of danger. One of us has got a problem if we do collide.”

Madison and Wilson drove off unscathed. The same can’t be said of Madison’s car. Barring any more deer incidents, Arrington anticipates his tenure with the Giants will be relatively problem free. He expects to make an impact on the field and become an important element in coach Tim Lewis’ defensive schemes.

“I don’t want to be a focal point, I just want to be a part and fit in the way I need to fit in,” he said. “I think with the personnel that we have, there are so many good players, there’s great talent. And I’m just excited to be a part of that. That’s what I’m excited about. Not being a focal point, just making this defense a focal point.”

Nevertheless, Arrington—with his Segway and his personality—is already making his presence felt here at training camp. As well as in his dorm room.

“I needed a lot of smell-good stuff. I got some Fabreeze for the couches, just in case we do some lounging, 'cause there’s more than one of us in the room. I got some Glade candles. They’re working pretty good. The smell is starting to take over now. Then I got one of those things that spray on a timer. You don’t have to plug them in, they’re on battery. They’re battery powered and (spray) every half-hour, 18 minutes. What a world of difference.”

Arrington hasn’t yet spoken to his roommates, Brandon Short and Jay Feely, but he hopes they’ll appreciate his contributions to their new living quarters.

“Brandon is a bachelor, so he might not care either way,” said Arrington. “But I’m sure he’ll enjoy it by week two or something. Jay, he’s a married guy like me, so I think he’ll enjoy it. Gives a little bit of a softer feel. I might grab some flowers on the way back from practice; put them in a vase or something.”

Flowers. Scented candles. A Segway. Is this the mark of a ferocious linebacker? Or are we just witnessing a changed man in Lavar Arrington?

“This is the best I’ve felt emotionally in a long time,” he said. “Just being in the right state of mind to play football, and to build camaraderie with my teammates and my coaches. I’m excited about it. That’s something I haven’t felt in quite a while. So this is good. It’s a new beginning, a rebirth, and I plan to make the most of it.”

Why is this post on a Redskins site? There is nothing in this article that interests me and it serves no purpose. Please remove it as well as my request.

It's obvious he hasn't moved on if he's so willing to keep rehashing the past.

As I said earlier, no comment is very underrated.

Re: Arrington happy to put Redskins in past

I agree 100%. I was a big Arrington supporter but he never seemed to fit into Greg Williams schemes. He plays as an individual and not a team player. I loved him from the time he knocked out Aikman but he overstayed his welcome. I hope cp runs over him and his big mouth

I am in the same boat as you. My girlfriend is a Giants fan as well. She has this ugly Giants blanket, I cant stand that thing. I tried to trash it but she found it again

COUGHLIN ALREADY UNHAPPY WITH ARRINGTON'S TALKING

A league source tells us that Giants coach Tom Coughlin isn't pleased with the decision of linebacker LaVar Arrington to sound off on the day the team reported for training camp regarding a variety of actual and/or perceived slights from his old team and members of the media.

"People want to hate on the Giants," Arrington said Thursday during his hour-long bitch session. "I've heard negative statements about Eli [Manning], about the defense. 'Who's going to be the biggest flop this year?' They say the Giants. They hate us. They really hate on the Giants. I guess it's a great situation because people have always hated on me."

(Actually, we think the Giants will be just fine this year. Until the playoffs.)

Regardless, Coughlin doesn't like the kind of chatter in which Arrington engaged, and it remains to be seen whether Coughlin has politely advised his biggest offseason acquisition to shut the hell up.

Our guess? If Arrington passes on the opportunity to spout off some more the next time a bank of microphones is stuck in his face, it means that the Soup Nazi has told LaVar that he'll get no crab bisque if he continues to complain about the lack of bread.

He's just pissed that he got let go before Joe Gibbs returns us to the Superbowl. Good Riddins and I wish many lack luster plays from LA for the giants.
