Re: Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

I don't know if you guys remember, but the Redskins had the same problem a few years back

Re: Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

I remember quite a few years ago Greg Lloyd from the Steelers got a staph infection from a dirty needle the Steelers used on him. He almost died from this infection (remember how one game he was a beast and the next he disappeared and never came back) and the Steelers were incredulous when he spoke out and sought compensation for their neglect costing him his career. He did get some $ but not before the Steelers smeared his name all over Pittsburgh. These teams will always over react because its big business. Winslow was right in saying the Browns treated him like a piece of meat because they and all the teams treat the players like a piece of meat.

Re: Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

Winslow was in the hospital for a week and they didn't check up on him. Yes he IS a man and should be able to take it, but you can't blame him for not feeling like part of the team from that. They fined him for saying that, pretty much proving him right that they don't have much respect for him.

Bad situation for the team and Winslow.

Maybe they'd treat him as part of the team if he could stay healthy and actually be around, but fining your player for such a statement is also ridiculous.

Isn't he the player who missed his rookie season because he hurt himself popping a wheelie on a bike?

Seems like the Browns are trying to trade him, wonder if they will get any offers.
Exactly. Winslow is a bit of a drama queen but he is 100% right on this one and he should take this to the commish. He gets suspended for telling the truth? Phil Savage looks like a little bitch on this. Total BS.

I remember it. Some guy we got from Dallas...I forgot his name, he was on the d-line. Didn't it end his career?

The last couple of years he has put up some big numbers while playing hurt and Clev. did not re work his contract.

Re: Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

IMO there should be a league mandated standard for every team on prevention of staph infections. They are so dangerous. That 7-7 center for UNC Asheville just had part of his foot amputated due to staph, and it ended his career and nearly killed him in the process.

I saw a special on TV one time on staph prevention in team locker rooms. They literally have teams of people come in and spray every inch of the locker room/weight room/showers with some super duper anti-microbial stuff like once a week. I know the Skins do it now, as should every pro and college team.

As far as Winslow, to suspend him for this is BS. Maybe a fine for running his mouth about the front office, but a suspension is dumb.

Re: Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

I find it hard to feel bad for KWII on anything. The Browns were wrong in trying to cover this up no doubt. But for him to get fired up because one guy (GM Phil Savage) didn't call him when he was in the hospital... I say boo effing hoo.

I'm pretty sure he figured he'd be a Skin also. So did everyone else when I was watching the Draft. I recall when Sean was selected, one of the commentators said something like...The Redskins just got their answer to Jeremy Shockey....something to that effect anyway. Damn, what a shame Taylor's gone.
