Exclamation New Reason behind LaVar Arrington not playing early season!!

This was very interesting news that I thought should be shared with my fellow Skins fans. We all remember back in the early weeks of the season when LaVar Arrington was riding the bench and all the rumors of why he was not playing were flying around. Well I got some interesting news recently. I was attending my family reunion last weekend and talking Redskins with one of my distant realtives. He is employed by Washington based radio station WTOP. He was telling me that some of the sports guys around the station were talking about the real reason LaVar wasn't playing. If you think back to the offseason the was a big dispute between LaVar and Dan Snyder over like 8 million that LaVar was supposedly owed. This dispute went to arbritation and LaVar ended up being awarded the money. Well suppoedly Dan Snyder was not to pleased with this decision and told Joe Gibbs that he had to bench LaVar for a few weeks. This story seems to fit and would make sense if Snyder was really pissed about the decision. Also the source which this comes from is a reliable one in WTOP. This is one scenario that may never be proven since Snyder would do his best to cover this up. I think this is an interesting topic to discuss so.....Discuss.

This has been brought up before. I don't think Gibbs would ever play this sort of stupid game. LaVar was just not 100% earlier in the season.

I thought the deal was worked out between the team and Arington.

Interesting! I am obviously a huge LaVar fan and said from the beginning the reasons Joe and Staff benched LaVar was not because of playing ability. However, I have somewhat moved on from that decussion and am pumped that he back on the field full time. I would like to bring up the Coles issue, that Danny got personal with him as well. Telling him he would be sitting home watching the games on the Plasma he was sending. This was leaked through the media, and had some reliable sources as well. I would not put it past Danny to get personal, but always thought him and LaVar had a pretty good relationship. I just hope this crap does not effect his playing in DC.

That is far fetch. If you over paid for a sports car would you just leave it parked because you were pissed you paid to much. NO! You would drive it. So why would Dan overpay Lavar then just bench him.

This is downright retarded. First off, Snyder settled the dispute with Arrington.

Secondly, there's no way Gibbs would allow this. No way in hell. He'd be out the door in a heartbeat if Dan Snyder started asking him to treat players like that.

Like I said there is only one guy who made the call to not play L.A. and that is Gregg Williams........ right or wrong he is the reason......

Because...Dan Snyder doesn't like riding Lavar Arrington?

Intelligent comment. So by this logic, Gibbs and company realized how much LaVar sucked at the beginning of the season, but it somehow completely slipped their minds around week seven. Correct?

And as far as the Snyder theory, that was my original theory from the start, which I based on Snyders handling of previous situations involving players and money. Even after all of the comments from LaVar and the coaches, I still think there is a 50/50 shot that Snyder was involved.

Kind of like that pass to Gates in overtime which put the chargers in position to beat us, Gates releases over to Lavars side while Lavar stands there watching the QB like the dummy he is, rather than going after and covering Gates, considering he was the last line of defense on that side of the field on that play, it was pretty typical of the types of things Lavar does on an every game basis, that's why he waesn't on the field, those types of mistakes which he makes over, and over, and over again.
I remember that play. Dont know who was to be covering Gates because him and Taylor blitzed on the same side at the same time. So one of the two should have been covering him. I would have imagined it would have been taylor since he has far better cover skills than Lavar.

Re: New Reason behind LaVar Arrington not playing early season!!

if the media knew it why didn't they say it all over every media outlet. There was a rumor that we here and people everywhere talked about but i don't believe it for a second. Lavar was hurt and when he got better he was not ready to start

I deem this the Retarded Post of the Week. The RPW is awarded in this case for several reasons.
Reason 1: Umm this discussion has been had...and had....and had.....and had again. It is now downrght ridculous to even bring it up at this point since he is playing and we are in the playoff hunt with a big game coming.
Reason 2: The logic behind the theory is idiotic. Why would they sit a guy they were paying a lot? To get nothing out of him? Sounds like a briilliant plan to me!
Reason 3: This is the capper. It was widely reported that the dispute was settled amicably between Lavar and the Skins. On top of that Lavar admitted weeks later that he had overreacted in the situation which would lead you to believe that he thinks the reason he was sitting had nothing to do with money. I don't think he'd have admitted overreacting if he wasn't playing based on the issue you raised.
