Is Albert Haynesworth for real? This man is nothing more than a lazy, overpaid, arrogant, defiant, self absorbed unappreciative waste of oxygen. A perfect role model for today's black youth. Or better yet, ANY youth for that matter. He can't even speak proper english.

I guess in this world we dont have a lot of people with, like, backbones, Haynesworth said. Just because somebody pay you money dont mean theyll make you do whatever they want or whatever. I mean, does that mean everything is for sale?
I mean, Im not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but that dont mean Im for sale or a slave or whatever.

I'm tired of seeing this arrogant blowhard in every headline. He is an embarassment to the sport and to his team. And Jeff Fischer is thinking about bringing this guy back to the Titans? Fisher is way too high class to stoop that low. This guy is disgusting!

Dan Snyder knew what he was getting into. That's the risk he took in signing a fat waste of space like Fat Albert. Another "genius" move by Snyder.

I lived in the DC area when Albert signed with the Skins. I don't remember one Skins fan I talked to that said ANYTHING along the lines of this being a GOOD signing.

The Skins deserve anything they get from this signing. You knew those 2 good years in Tennessee were only show for the money. The incident with Andre Gurode. The Skins knew the guy they were giving $100 mill to.

Actually for a couple of years he was one of the better defensive tackles in football with the Tennessee Titans. But for $100 million dollars you got to have a guy that is the total package in terms of on the field performance, team leadership, and being an asset in terms of team public relations. Haynesworth has failed woefully in terms of return on investment in all three areas.

Dan Synder has a history of overpaying for players, just add one more to the list.

I'm sure there's a spot for him on the Eagles....they already have Vick, can't get much lower than that.

He was one of the guys a lot of teams (Like the Texans) took off their draft boards because of 'character issues'.

That assessment would be correct.

Not the worst, but still bad. He's not a criminal, just someone with a sense of entitlement and a bad attitude to compliment it. It's not like he pulled out firearms in the locker room and threatened teammates..... Either way, he will still have a job regardless. Pro athletes dont have to play by the same rules as us common folk.

Vick made a really stupid mistake. While his crime was atrocious to anyone who has a heart for animals, he can still learn from, and have a regret for, the past and make a better future. There is no helping the likes of Haynesworth. He will have the same outlook and demeanor till the day he dies. I've never been around the guy, but somehow I just cannot see him being a pleasant person to get along with.

Any successful person will tell you that attitude is everything. A locker room can be a very contageous place. Those teams were smart to do so.

But they probably wont. And regardless what happens, some other team will surely still want his services. I never understood what cultivates that mentality of entitlement......
