I'm not sure that the Skins knew this was going to be a problem or if they just thought they could do without him and his hugh contract. He did perform well for us toward the end of the year.

The one exception is Antonio Pierce. Damn I wish we'd kept him. But Coles, Gardner, Smoot, Arrington, and the others that don't come to mind immediately, good riddance.

Re: Need I Say More Than "LA"? (Arrington injured again)

I heard his contract in New York is nothing but fancy numbers, he's not gonna see that money unless he performs really well in NY. In the case he doesn't perform well, he's probably gonna be hating the skins every day he's injured just because he's not gonna see the money he thinks he's worth.

What's funny is I'm inclined to believe the Redskins would have stuck by him one more year even with his knee situation.

We've got Marshall at a fraction of what Pierce would have cost.

I think we made out great with that.

I really doubt that.

The relationship between him and the coaches was clearly coming apart especially at the end. LB coach Dale Lindsey and him butted heads repeatedly.

His health was obviously a concern, but a bigger part of us letting him walk had to do with him simply not fitting in with this staff and what they wanted to him to do.

Dmek, I don't mean to come down on you, because you're only the latest one to do this so it's not entirely directed at you. But I am absolutely sick and tired of hearing people lecture about how it's not cool to take pleasure in an opponent's injury.

This is f*ckin football. Men play this game, not babies, not women, not boys. Men. I am glad to see Lavar Arrington hurt because he's a Giant, so effing sue me.

As long as it's not life threatening or career threatening, I don't see the problem. Pain is temporary, it will go away and he'll still live a normal happy life. In the meantime, he won't be able to play effectively against my Redskins, and that's a good thing.

So please, everyone stop with the effing lectures, grow a sack, and get real. Should I feel sorry for a weekend warrior who sprains a knee playing hoops? Eff no. He'll be fine in three weeks. Cry me an effing river.

Schneed, I like how you spell the 'F' word. You're my hero!

Re: Need I Say More Than "LA"? (Arrington injured again)

Wednesday at 10am.

That's when I say LaVar holds some impromptu conference to declare that his knees are totally fine, he's not hurt, he just needs to emotionally pace himself for the full regular season or some such bull.

Who wants to take the under, who wants to take the over?

Wow, that sounds eerily accurate. You must work for ESPN

If my memory serves me correctly there were more than a few here who marveled at the hit LaVar put on Troy Aikman to virtually end his career. It's funny you would mention that because we obviously have a long line waiting for professional help.
