Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

Haynesworth is a spoiled brat, regardless of how you slice it. He doesn't like to be yelled at. He doesn't like to be told what to do. He likes to do what HE wants to do. Regardless of the teams SCHEME. He is a one man wrecking crew but he has never been to a Superbowl because only TEAMS go to the Superbowl and there is no i in the word team.

Haynesworth clearly doesn't understand that and Mike Shanahan does, as evidenced by his 3 Superbowl rings.

Haynesworth seemed to be doing well in Tennessee. I don't get how asking to be played in a position where you could be of better use to the team is considered being a spoiled brat (yet still say that you are willing to do whatever the coaching staff). Stop buying the drama crap that the media is feeding people regarding this situation.

Guess what, Jim Schwartz LET HIM freelance and the Titans reaped the substantial benefits of that freelancing by having one of the most dominating defenses out of the 32 teams in the league in 2008. Football is not a 19th century textile factory in which you could easily replace a sewing machine operator with another worker and not give a shit about your employees. You use your players in an OPTIMAL manner, not in a satisficing manner, and if Shanahan WILL NOT ALLOW any sort of FEEDBACK from his players, then he needs his own ego check.

Who does like all of those things? I mean, really? But like all reasonable people, Haynesworth has also said that he will do what is asked of him because that's his job. People gloss over that fact, though.

Where has it ever been said that his feathers have been ruffled? It seems to me that the only ruffled feathers are found on all these drama queen fans who are out for blood.

He is fulfilling his commitments and he has said from the beginning that all he wants to be is the best. If him training with his personal trainer gets him there, then Godspeed, Big Al.
and why do you think I started off by saying "me personally?" I know the clubs agreed to the rules. Thats why I said "it's voluntary." I think what I'm seeing perhaps only out of the Skins is they would like to have their players at the facility all yr around unless they are on vacation. The problem is no one can make the players stay.

I'm kinda a rules guy. If the speed limit is 55 mph, you ask people to do 45 mph but legally they can do 55. Just like this situation, you can ask them to stick around but legally they don't have to.

I'm pointing out that I would like to see them be around more often especially since they make so much money, but no one can get mad cause technically they don't have to be here. I just don't understand all the "Hanesworth is problem" comments. He came last yr and did his job. He took on double teams for the season. Allowing others to get more sacks. Thats why we brought him in.

If the owners don't like the fact that the players don't want to be around for voluntary work outs then change the damn rules or have it put in their contracts.

Got it. I was thinking of rings as a HC, but good point there

I can understand fans bitching about something they don't know much about, but sheesh, it's just getting very tired to hear the same shit over and over again.

well it had to be better than tony konrheiser this morning. i kid you not. turn on his show and they are talking about how one of his co-hosts (kim) son is going to do their draft recap and analysis. the kid is 5 years old. she goes on saying how all he does in analyze football, that he predicted bradford to the rams and that tebow is his favorit player and that he knew tebow was changing his throwing motion. anyways, kim the mom, cant blame her, does the typical "oh my son is soo smart, he even knows who sam bradford is!" yada yada.

then tonly goes on to say the skins did well by trading campbell for a 5th round pick next year. tony k was zero interest following sports anymore, the man thinks hes hollywood now.

every day i give the man a chance, every time without fail i have to change the dial within a minute.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

Whatever side we choose to take, this story isn't dying anytime soon. I don't care how Bruce Allen and Shanny spin it and deny they aren't interested in trading Haynesworth. For what it's worth, I can tell you now people here in D.C. don't like the guy. Maybe not all, but all the ones I talk to.

The only thing(s) that could possibly help the Skins put all of his behind them is a monster season by Haynesworth and a playoff berth.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

yup i think the "winning cures all" mantra could hold true for our AH situation. we start winning, hopefuly the focus will be on the skins as a team and not individual players.
