The resolution is simple, all the Fat Ass has to do is pass the damn test!! Then POOF! it's resolved!

He received a smattering of boo's which was to be expected, on the other hand there was at one point a group that chanted "we love you Al" so go figure.

Hear is a portion of the story written in the Post:

Sopping wet in his gray nylon long-sleeve shirt, he finally acknowledged the crowd shouting his name behind the ropes.
"We love you, Albert!" someone yelled. He raised his hand in a mock wave just in time to hear the retort. "We'd love you more if you lose 10 more pounds."

I love the bold part!

A mixed reaction I didn't expect, but I did share a quick moment with a player I won't name about the feeling of offseason workouts going foreward. Is this type participation going to be expected to continue in the future, or is/was it because the majority of the guys wanted to leave a good impression. His response was he hadn't given it much thought, but if it is expected to continue he thinks there could be more Haynesworth's in the future minus the dollars.

I believe it was actually said if he'd run 10 more laps, at least that's what was reported by several guys yesterday

Well, we'll see. I mean I love that all the players were working out at the park together...but I have never minded when players wanted to train on their own or workout elsewhere. The thing that bothered me about Haynesworth was just the mini camp that was required. If guys want to work out elsewhere next year, I wouldnt have an issue with it... of course I'm sure if we win a ton of games, guys will buy into it. If we go 6-10, then they might not.

From where I was standing I could hear the "We love you" part but little else. I know attention gazed towards the comments.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Haynesworth still hasn't caught up to Fred Smoot's epic ability to fail the test. Just sayin'

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

IMO this is snowballing into a public pissing contest between Shanny and Albert. I don't like it one bit.

I do, because Albert can't/won't win.

Don't you mean "by a whole second"?

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Given that the test is only given to those not around for offseason activities, I think a message is being sent to the whole team for future offseasons.

I think it's most of the snowballing is coming from the fans. Albert has not or can not say anything to the media and Shanahan is just using trying to be as generic as possible. It's a big deal because of Albert's past actions, which include him skipping mandatory workouts, and his failure to complete the test is a validation of many fans' perception of him being a large bag of blubber even if it has also been reported that he has indeed slimmed down. Otherwise, it wouldn't be as such a big deal, as Smoot always failed it on his first try

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

You guys can't feel sorry for AL. Yea it's starting to get ugly with the media but this is why Mike Shanahan has won 2 super bowls and has a great coaching record. The guy doesn't put up with BS. Albert brought this on him self when he asked for a trade and didn't show up for OTAs
