Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

Redskins running back Clinton Portis has shown up now and then, and defensive back Sean Taylor, who has skipped the team's recent workouts, made one appearance -- and only to play a game of half-court basketball, Miami strength coach Andreu Swasey said. Both are former Hurricanes.


So what the hell are Porits and Taylor doing then??? I was under the impression that Portis was at Redskins park a few times; so is he going back and fourth?

WTF is Sean Taylor doing?? Nothing?!? Seriously, he is really becoming a problem to me. I just dont get his way of thinking.

Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

Well, the key word here is "voluntary". He really isn't doing anything wrong by not being at Redskin park. NFL players used to just f around until training camp with no offseason program. I understand that the NFL has changed but the guy has a right to do what he wants. As long as he shows up to camp on time and works his ass off and comes into the season ready to smack fools down, then I'll be ok with it. If he pulls a T.O. and holds out, whines like a bitch by not honoring the contract HE SIGNED and causes a ruckus, then I'll have a problem.

I'm guessing that they're killing each other on XBOX or PS2.

'Green Bay Packers tight end Bubba Franks arrived in a cherry red Hummer. Teammate Javon Walker pulled up in a snow white Escalade. Buffalo Bills running back Willis McGahee drove up in a black BMW with wide silver rims. Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss parked a dark silver Mercedes-Benz with the Florida tag 8-TREY.'

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of a modern day professional athalete who isn't materialistic?

Actually yeah. He's retired now, but do you remember Robert Smith, RB for the Vikings? He made good money, I don't remember how much but I know it was over $1 million per season for a good while. He lived in a house that would probably be worth about $400,000-$500,000. Pretty nice house of course, but something that many American families can afford at some point in their lives. He saved almost all of his money, socking it away into investments. He was very financially savvy, he always said I'd rather go ahead and make my living now playing football and be able to retire and spend time with my children, rather than have to go to work doing something else. He was a serious breath of fresh air.

I bet they're studying past contract hold-outs so they can "one-up" the previous major pain in the ass, oh, i mean professional athlete.

Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

From what I understood - Portis was working out with the team. I don't believe this article suggested that the visits that Portis made to Miami were the only times he had worked out.

Taylor still seems to be the mystery. At least it does seem like Moss WAS working out.

Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

Schneed10- thanks for that. I actually liked Robert Smith. I wish more players would model themselfes after him. I know that a lot of NFL players donate to charities and such but it seems to me that many of them have absolutely no self control when it comes to spending.

We must remember though that these guys come from a poor background. Still, those who make the league minimum can't afford to be as materialist.

Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

If I had more money that I knew what to do with I'd find something nice to spend it on that's for sure

We might not all go for the flashy cars, but you can't tell me if you were a multi-millionaire you would just save it all.

Re: NFL Players Train at U. of Miami

i wouldn't. right now im middle class, but hey, you can't blame them for being poor all their life, then getting a great job and living the life they had never known about. i would feel differently if some rich ass kid who had lived luxuriously all his life came into the nfl and spent all his money on nice things, but who amongst us can say they wouldn't want that too.
