I've never been into dogs, never dealt with dogs, don't like playing with dogs. But at the same time, there's a lot of people who are crazy over pets."
Thats not how I interpreted it.

I dont think people should be losing sleep over this but I do think it tells us a lot about CP's character & intellect.
I'm probably not alone in thinking that your opinion is clouded somewhat by the fact that you have admittedly been rather disgusted with the team as a whole for the last few years; to the point that even good news/decisions are received by you with a rather negative response. So that an ignorant, unknowingly harmful statement by Portis is met by extreme derision on your part. If I recall though, you've never been a fan of Portis, saying he wasn't tough enough, or a hard-worker (something along those lines).

You're entitled to your opinion of course. But am I very off base in thinking this?

He probably didn't understand just how crazy people are.

He's not a robot, I'm sure he knew that people loved their pets, he just didn't realize the degree to which people love them.

Exclamation Re: Portis Apologizes For Dog Fighting Comment

I just finally got around to reading the article about Vick's case in last week's SI and I found something rather interesting.

The next time some cowboys fan tries to give you crap about Portis' comments just remind them that back in 1991 that moron Nate "400lbs of weed" Newton was arrested while at a dogfight.

It might not be much, but I always love having a retort for other teams' fans' comments.

This is great AMD, because I know my friends(Boys fans) at school are gonna give me shit. This really should shut them up.

Yupp, I agree. Anyone true Redskins fan knows where Portis's intent is. And I dont think anything is wrong in him hoping Vick gets cleared. That's opinion.

I do think the organization is disfunctional and I now need the Redskins to prove things to me before. In the past when the Skins were competent and well run, when they said something was going to happen I believed them because they had a track recored of success. They now have a track record of failure so that trust is gone.

BTW, what good news & decisions are you talking about? I am having a hard time coming up with any.

Well I'm referring to earlier this year, when you were saying nothing had changed with the Redskins and they were the same old throw money at other teams' players while neglecting our own.

And I said but what about re-signing Betts, Sellers, Fox, Jimoh; restructuring Thomas, Jansen, Wynn, etc? Granted they're not all starters but they are all key components of our team.

To which you responded with something along the lines of "Well those don't count really. And they'll have to do make the playoffs a few years in a row to win my trust back"

He said that he's going to mind his own business from now on. I think it's clear he's seen the error of his ways.

Re: Portis Apologizes For Dog Fighting Comment

Portis is not a bad guy. He's a proud guy. I'm sure he has been trying to figure out a good way out with out kissin' some ass. What he said to the press was...........INCREDIBLY stupid.
I imagine he spoke mostly in ignorance rather than with malicious intent. Is he wrong to defend (alleged) felonious behavior by MV? I think so. This was compounded by the barbaric nature of the alleged acts and subsequent crimes. If he had it to do over again, I'm sure he would find another to phrase it, and defend Vick, rather than get ass handed to him in the news.
Yes, he exercised his freedom of speech rights. The tempest of negative press was in turn execised by other constitutionally empowered Americans.

Oh BTW, did he sound sincere in his subsequrent interviews regarding his original comments? No, I did not read anywhere that he said he was wrong, or that the dog fighting is wrong. However, it is America, and he gets to feel, and say what he wants

They will have to become winners again (which means a few playoff appearances in a row) before I believe this organization is no longer disfunctional.
