By the way, it's not guaranteed that the Browns got one of the Raiders 3rd round picks (even though Cleveland already has two of their own) for Wimbley. I've also heard a 4th; a 4th and a 6th; and a 4th and a 5th as the other possibilities. Don't think it's been confirmed yet.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

I dont see the browns letting go of any picks.........But hopefully we could get some quality picks in a package deal for some of our underperforming players...........

That would be a good day.

So I think it's confirmed now that it is a 3rd (not sure which one Oakland gave up though)

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Hey SS, while you're around, when is the name change going to occur? I mean, Smoot is no longer a Redskin after all...

Neither is Art Monk but we still artmonkhofin07 (or something like that). Until and unless Smoot signs with another team he's still a Redskin in my heart

Seriously though, the name SmootSmack was more about the brash attitude that his Smootness brought as a rookie (and not as much about the player) so I don't plan on changing it again...unless we sign Rex Grossman in which case...SexyRexy here I come!

Ah yes, SexyRexy, he may become the last vestige of the ol' Ball Coach still haunting the Redskins.

I actually don't think Grossman will be here (I mean he might be a last minute, as in close to training camp, signing) but I don't really see him making the final roster....could be wrong though

Sorry friend, there are plenty of us with a healthy amount of football knowledge who will always object to the signing of a man accused of multiple violent attacks on women. Further, your use of the term "bitch slap" when talking about Larry Johnson is just plain childish and ignorant.

I actually respect the football merit of the signing, and had this been any other player, I would support the move and the contract structure. However, in my mind there is no "gray area" when it comes to violence against women, and LJ has a long and well documented history of assaults on women, including brandishing a firearm and slapping one, shoving another to the ground, choking a third, and spitting on then threatening to kill yet another. He has been arrested or detained for four separate incidents since 2003...that's 7 years he's had to clean up his act and failed to do so.

The crowning jewel, of course, was getting jettisoned from his team mid-season last year for two separate incidents of running his mouth about the coaching staff and hurling racial and homophobic slurs at reporters.

So, again, I'll repeat, any other Joe with his numbers and I like this move, but LJ will never get a cheer or a clap out of me, and I will consider it a blight on the franchise so long as he is in the Redskins employ.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

A lot of those are allegations aren't they? Allegations that were never necessarily proven I believe. Could be wrong though, and like I've said before even one time is one time too many.

But I mean I guess it's like Gmanc said at the beginning of this thread, even though we don't really know what goes on in the personal lives of any of these players as long as we don't I guess it's ok to root for them. Ignorance is bliss.

Four public allegations following arrests or detentions, one conviction, two civil suits and two cases dropped due to the victims either recanting or receiving financial compensation. And that's just what we know about. He is currently serving two year probation for simple assault and disturbing the peace for the fourth incident.

Yes, there is a good chance that other players are guilty of similar or worse, and that doesn't make it right, either. However, the argument is moot because LJ's indiscretions are known, and while I agree with second chances...four strikes is three too many for second chances.

I maintain my position: good football player; crappy human.

Yeah, Dude! Sexy Rexy! That's because LJSmack is just wrong on so many levels.

Re: Redskins Sign Larry Johnson

Definitely doesn't make it right.

If there's one thing I've learned in my nearly 15 years of covering pro sports it's to separate the player on the field from the person off the field. Ideally everyone is Charles Mann, a great player on the field and a better person off the field. But often times if you expect for your favorite player to be a great guy off the field (whether it's just being rude to being a thug/felon/what have you) you're going to be disappointed.

I guess it's just a matter of what you can tolerate. Are you rooting for the guy to get your team wins and are you willing to ignore what he does and how he represents your favorite team outside the game, or are you rooting for him as a player/person and won't accept anything less than the full package.

Now, just how do you embed the above into the Poll question?

Are we building a Boy Scout troop or a football team? I expect him to stay out of trouble and produce on the field for our team. The past cannot be changed but as long as he doesn't embarass our team, I will cheer for him.
