Total disconnect

Albert Haynesworth is being paid $100 million over seven years to play a game. And after his offseason of complaining and refusingto practice during mini-camp, he isn't playing that game very well anymore.

So he went on a Washington radio station and made one of the dumbest and most asinine comments I have ever heard. He's bitter and clinging to his guns and religion because the Redskins want him to play a different defensive scheme than he was accustomed to in previous years. I don't have a lot to say about this idiot because I'll let his own words do all the talking.

"Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want or whatever. I mean, does that mean everything is for sale?" Haynesworth said last week. "I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but ... that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever."

No, you're not a slave. You get paid for what you supposedly do for a living. But you WERE for sale two years ago when you signed that record-breaking contract with the Redskins. They may not own your soul, but they are paying you enough money to tell you what to do while at the office


  1. I've got Albert on my list of blog topics, too. What an idiot. If his situation is slavery, please make me a slave, too. The guy had one great year, when he was playing for a big contract. Dumbass Daniel Snyder took the bait and got what everyone with half a brain expected him to get: next to nothing. Karma will extract its revenge, though. I'm guessing that Haynesworth will be broke within a couple of years of leaving the NFL.

  2. This guy has been a thorn in my side for the past five months. But it was only after his asinine comments that I decided to speak my mind. Most athletes don't act this way, but those who do infuriate me.

    By the way, let me use this entry to tell everyone that I, too, am for sale to the highest (newspaper employer) bidder. Let the bidding begin at $1 million per year.
