Albert Haynesworth and his agent should start a comedy tour together

I don’t really feel like working today, so I won’t. My writing talents are wasted on a blog like The Scores Report, so I think I’ll just sit at home, fire up re-runs of “Married With Children” and wait for my boss to find me another place of employment.

If you think that sounds ridiculous, then you should hear some of the things Albert Haynesworth is saying through his agent.

This is from the Washington Post:

“The Redskins are trying to establish a new regime with new schemes at Redskins Park, and it is not an organization that Albert would have ever been attracted to just a short year ago – regardless of the money,” agent Chad Speck said in a phone interview. “He has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins.

Once I re-attach my spleen from laughing too hard, I’ll get back to this post.

He would have never been attracted to the Redskins a year ago, regardless of money? Who is Speck trying to fool with that comment? It was all about money last year when Haynesworth signed with the Redskins. If he were looking for the best situation, he would have re-signed with the Titans for less. Regardless of the money? Oh God, my spleen is giving out again…

Make no mistake about it: His 350-pound ass chose a massive payday over all else, which is why his recent stance against the Redskins is a joke. He’s only in year two of a seven-year, $100 million contract in which Daniel Snyder has already paid him a large chuck of it. Now he wants out because he doesn’t want to play in the 3-4? Well guess what – that’s too damn bad.

Snyder and Mike Shanahan should make Haynesworth rot. If he doesn’t want to play football then the team can fine him until he does show up. One thing we know about Albert is that money plays a big factor in his decision-making. Maybe the 3-4 won’t look so bad to him once he starts losing millions of dollars in fines.

But under no circumstances should they trade him. That’s exactly what he wants and it would encourage every other player that didn’t like his situation to do the same thing. Don’t want to play in the spread offense? No problem – just hold out like Albert did. Tired of playing in Green Bay winters? Cool – bitch and moan like Albert did and eventually your team will have no choice but to trade you.

We’re talking about a grown man who is making millions of dollars to play a kid’s game refusing to show up to work because he doesn’t like the situation…in a down economy, no less. How ridiculous does that sound? Does he know that people pick up trash for living, work in sewers or get shot at to protect our country? Do you think those people like their situations? Probably not, but they know they have a job to do and they do it. They don’t sit at home and complain until they get what they want.

The Redskins should make him rot at home.
