I'm a Christian man and I can't have three sixes in my contract.

Come on, jesus. This is absolutly crazy.

The bad news is something we've known all along: the Redskins as a business under Dan Snyder are snakes in the grass.

The good news is this: Arrington loves the Redskins as a football team, loves the fans and loves Washington, D.C. He's looking forward to playing for this coaching staff, and the controversy caused by the contract gaffe will not affect his relationship with them.

Yes, it sucks that the Redskins can't maintain a forthright and honorable approach when dealing with one of their most loyal and devoted players. But at least Arrington is maintaining a balanced and circumspect view of the whole thing. He is able to seperate the business side of the Redskins from the football side of the Redskins.

I'm a little puzzled by the rationale of the whole "devil's contract" assertion, but it does sound like something about the deal wasn't kosher. Let's hope the Redskins make this right, and change their way of doing business before it destroys their relationship and credibility with their current and prospective players.

I'd at least like to see both sides of this story brought into the full light of day, but I have little confidence that will ever happen.

Is he serious?? I don't even know what to make of this article, and this whole situation.

My question is this, why would the Skins give him a $6.5M bonus that would have brought his cap number to a totally unmanageable figure??

The whole thing makes no sense from LA's perspective.

yeah, i mean w/the SECOND bonus of $6.5 million, which is the one being disputed, his cap hit in 2 or 3 years would be $18 million or something like that so thats a bit hard to believe the skins would agree to a number like that just because it would have equaled 666. they probably just would have changed the original roster bonus and added another $100,000 or so and that would have done the job but nowhere near $6.5 million just to make sure the contract wasn't 66.6. wouldn't that make more sense if this was really the problem with the contract?

I'm convinced that LaVar is just a little off.

If!

If LVarr admits his mistake, why is there an arbitration hearing? He made a mistake. His agent made a mistake. The Redskins should win this, not LVarr!

The only thing I like that he said is that it wont effect his play or relationship with the coaches. I mean, he is freakin insane if he thinks he has a case. I mean if he got screwed over, it happens to everyone, but he signed it, so theres nothing he can do about it. I'm sure that 6.5 million isnt gonna stop him from feeding his kids or whatever, the guy still has a boatload of money

Unreal. It really makes you wonder...

Why didn't the interviewer ask about the fact that the contract would be unacceptable to the skins with the added 6.5 in 2006? How does LA explain that? And why didn't his agent notice that it was missing if they had just negotiated about THAT VERY POINT? What, he didn't check to see if the new bonus that was at issue in the phone call was included? What was he looking for?

It sounds to me like Poston is so far up Lavar's ass that LA has no idea what's going on. Maybe LA didn't want a contract with three sixes, but do you really think that this was an issue for Poston? Wha?

Lavar, just because your agent says he a Christian doesn't mean he not the: :FIREdevil

I know LA is weird and can seem really off but more importantly...

I LOVE how DS always goes out and spends the money for FAs instead of keeping the profits, but I am sick of always being involved in rumors of dirty dealing. Winnning is not that cool when nobody respects the organization.

Your right, winning is even cooler. Who really gives a rats ass what everyone else thinks. In my opinion, it will make it all the more sweeter if everyone hates the hell out of us. This "dirty dealing" is nonsense becasue, a) EVERY team tampers, so when we do it who cares. b) That whole Milloy nonsense was thrown out, the Chad Morton thing last year wasent on us either. LA shouldnt have signed the contract if it was messed up, its not the Skins' fault
