Donte Whitner is a bad guy

Posted on: August 5, 2011 11:49 am
Donte Whitner is a liar and a fraud, and the Bengals have had plenty of those over the years. Good riddance to you, Whitner. Didn't want you in Cincinnati anyway.

But the way he went about his business, choosing the 49ers over the Bengals ...

Disgraceful. Just awful. Donte Whitner had come to terms with the Bengals -- agreed on a contract and everything -- and then pulled a Carlos Boozer and took more money from someone else.

On the intellectual side, I get it. X dollars from one team, or X-plus-Y dollars from another? You choose X-plus-Y ...

... unless you've already given your word to the team offering X. And then you stick by your word, because that's what an honorable person does.

Whitner isn't honorable. He's a clown. And then, after Tweeting that he had would play for the Bengals, he had the gall to Tweet that he would play for the 49ers instead and credited God for the change of plans.

As if God would approve of the way Donte Whitner went about this whole thing.

Stupid. Appalling. Self-centered.

Given all that, Whitner would have been the perfect Bengal. But we're getting rid of clowns like that in Cincinnati, so it's for the best that this one didn't come here after all.

You know.. As Alec Baldwin said in Glenn Gary Glenn Ross...
"There is only one thing in life that matters, get them to sign on the line which is dotted".

Cincy native; born and raised. Hate to say it, boy, do I hate to say it...But you are 100% right. Whitner is not to blame for his actions. Brown is to blame for Whitner's actions. Mike Brown's greed and stupidity make him the worst owner in the history of all pro sports. Congratulations Mike! Finally something you're the best at. Sucking!!! Oh, and thanks for ruining NFL football for all the Cincinnati fans.

I get the fact he got more money and an extra year. I don't get the fact he tweeted to Bengal nation he was coming to Cincinnati. That is what make him a tool. One can only hope the guy loses in the end. The fact he brought "God" into makes him an even bigger douche bag. See ya week three in Cincy Donte. Buy tickets for you family and friends, but you might also want to have them guarded for safety. You and your entourange are not welcome in the Jungle.

Hmmmm, lets see.  Play for less money for Cinci and the Nazi owner, Mike Brown....or...Play for more money and play for an actual NFL team that isnt the equivalent of football Siberia.  Good decision, Donte.

Looks like 3G finally took everyone's advice and got rid of the photo with the Thor hammer.  All it did was prove how small a person Doyel is to scale.

You may want to look up contract language prior to making yourself look the fool.

What about every team in the league then - when a player signs a, for example, 4-year deal, and gets cut after year 2 - I guess those teams are liars and frauds, because they didn't live up to their word either - word that would put to paper, and signed on the dotted line.  And every one of those 32 teams has cut someone before their contract was technically over.  Liars and bad guys all around then I guess.  Or... maybe... they are just businessmen.

The contracts are written and agreed to by both parties. They consist of signing bonuses based on how long the contract, they consist of yearly pay, and the third element states which part is guaranteed. In other words, some, all or none of the contract may not be guarnteed. In essence, the owners always pay the guaranteed portion even if they choose to cut a player early. They are not on the hook for the unguaranteed portion. The part the player agreed to when he signed the contract. I truly wish people were not so ignorant and keep thorwing out deceitful information. get the facts before you start ranting. 

On Whitmer, he is low life. He proved it yeaterday.    &

Ronnie Brown turned down 3 other teams (Cincinnati was not one of them) offering more money than the Eagles and he signed to be their 3rd down back.

Your only as good as your word and we don't need confused flip flops like Whitner in Cincinnati.
