Another lazy bum who wants paid to just show up.

Another trouble maker who believes he is above it all.

Waive his sorry but and sue him to return any money they have paid him.

The man is a complete and utter joke and should be made as an example.

A writer on yahoo sums up the goofiness, and lays the blame squarely on Snyder (agree) for spending like a chump amateur.

Hey guys - This was on Yahoo sports this evening. This is a TRUE man, unlike Haynesworth. These are the hero's of this world. A man that looks after his family. This guy might not make millions, but he is a winner in my book. And that's something Big Al will never be.

I'm not sure this is related to Albert.

However he really did make a smart decision. Better to make a steady salary than to quit a job for a small winfall.

It's not. But Haynesworth could take a lesson from him. A little selflessness goes a long way. That is a virtue that Haynesworth will never possess, nor does he probably care to.

Can't blame all of this on Haynesworthless... He's an idiot, no question. But who's the bigger idiot here? The billionaire who blindly signed him knowing what he was getting into? BINGO.. .that would be Danny Boy Snyder, by far THE worst owner in the NFL... He's turned the Redskins into Raiders East!

Ditchlights and X-Greenboro are both right here. Haynesworth thinks he has an inherent right to playing the way he wants to play. On Showtime's "Inside The NFL" last night Warren Sapp stated that he should have been released right after the first confrontation with the coaching staff.

And the Redskins owner? Whew, don't even know where to start here.

That franchise makes you wonder. No respect for the fans and some unbelievably bad signings. But I'm tolerating Michael Vick so I guess it all comes down to putting up with bad behavior if you win. That goes for Steelers fans, just about every team.

It's one thing to know that the coaches and front office don't like you. It's another thing to know that the majority of your peers and fans think you are out of line and have lost respect for you. Haynesworth couldn't care less what ANYONE thinks about his actions. It takes a truly "special" individual to act the way he has and have no shame about it.

If Haynesworth was producing on the field, I would not have as much of an issue. Good play makes up for bad deeds/attitudes in the NFL. But he's not. He's blatantly lazy, arrogant, and combative over just about every issue related to the team. This is why he is receiving the backlash he is. Because they are not winning, and he has produced squat. Yet he still runs his mouth like a fool.

The Skins' made a dumb mistake by bringing him in, but the move to suspend him w/o pay was good. What else could they do at that point? The damage is done. It'll be interesting to see what foolish team takes him next.
