Haynesworth Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The NFL Players Association is going to try to get some of Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth’s money back.

Haynesworth was suspended for the final four games of the season without pay for conduct detrimental to the team, and the NFLPA plans to fight it, according to CSN Washington.

That four games is the max the team can sit him down without having to pay him.

Haynesworth stands to lose $847,000 of base salary during his suspension.

From the story:

The Redskins’ defense to an arbitrator will be that they have a catalog of things Haynesworth did this year that were detrimental, ending with his refusal to speak to coach Mike Shanahan and a refusal to play on first-and second-down running situations.

The PA will likely counter that even if the Redskins have a dossier or transgressions, the first time Haynesworth was given a written reprimand was when he was suspended. Agent Chad Speck said general manager Bruce Allen confirmed as much after the suspension was announced.

I don't understand why Fat Albert Haynesworth wants to fight the suspension, he should be happy he does not want to play anyway.  The Redskins, The Coaches and the fans don't want him around anymore.  Yes he was another in the a long line of huge mistakes signed by the Skins.  The first mistake was having a huge jackass of an owner, who does not know anymore about football than the average fan on the couch, running the team.  Maybe, running the team into the ground is more correct.  Does Snyder not realize that he is a horrible owner, talent evaluator and strategist.  The biggest mistake that happened to the Redskins was Dan Snyder.  The Skins will never win until he packs up his used car salesman sleaze and style and hits the the road.  Although a loyal fan of the Redskins, Dan Snyder has made admitting that an embarrassing to Skins fans.

NFLPA - No credibility

The players association needs to pick and choose its battles.  You can't just fight every single issue, because you lose respect and credibility if you do that.  In cases where the player is clearly at fault, and the NFLPA still fights it, that really upsets me and it hurts the players who actually have a legitimate beef with the NFL.  It's like the boy who cried wolf.  If you appeal every single thing, the NFL can't determine which ones are the legit appeals and which are the obligatory ones.

In a case where the player is flat out at fault, just let it go.  Don't waste anyone's time.

I would be more upset if it was anyone but the Skins. They have over paying for losers down to an art form. Remember when they signed this clown 30 seconds after he became a free agent? You don't throw money at a guy who stomped another players head in. Serves them right. For fat Al's sake I hope he saved some money. Otherwise we will see this guy in 5 years, playing for the veteran minimum, trying to play at the level he should be playing at now, just to make some team as a backup. Good luck with that, everyone in DC will be behind him. I'm sure some d-bag writer on this site will publish a feel-good article about his comeback, how he is a changed man and how he found god or something stupid like that. Guess what fat Al? God's picture is not on the dollar bill.

Amazing how every third grader that can read knows the story between this jerk and management, but because they didn't put specifics down on paper to let him know the PA is getting into it by defending him.  What a freaking joke.  Every NFL player that's worth his salt should write the PA "If you defend him I quit the Association".  He cashes in on millions earlier this year, sits out, doesn't make the physical, plays only when and if he feels like it and now they sit him and the PA gets involved.  Where was the PA when he was doing all the wrong things?  Why didn't they speak out AGAINST him?

In defending this guy, The NFLPA probably feels about the same as a defense attoroney defending a child molester does but they pretty much have to do it .....
