Donte Whitner is a bad guy

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.

If you are this upset about losing someone named "Donte Whitner" chances are your team isn't very good anyway.  That he would rather be a 49er is the insulting part, not like he left for a team who will have a winning record or a shot at winning it all.  Heck the 49ers might even be a step down, and that is what should make Bengals fans sad.

Wow did Whitner slap this guy's momma? I mean , calling his actions "Appalling" among other things is a bit much, dont you think?

A pro player got a better offer and changd his mind and took it. Happens all the time.

Stupid? Well, he did get more money, right? Guess I wouldnt call THAT stupid.

Self-centered? Well, yeah, I guess. Every time an athlete signs a better contract, it's self-centered. Seeing as they are trying to get more money...

Appalling? Save that type of adjective for things that actually ARE appalling, like mureder, rape, etc.... we are talking about a guy going back on his word for money. Maybe not the ideal of a man with rock hard principles of honor and loyalty....but hardly appalling.

Donte Whitner is a paid guy

Good for him. A player's word is worth as much as a teams word in the NFL......nothing. Look at the Osi situation currently onfolding. They told him one thing and did another, its business. Thats why a team can give these huge numbers on a contract and pay fraction because they cut the guy next year because he was slowed by injury or less than advertised. Are they bad guys?? No they are cap gurus and shrewd execs.

So next time get it in writing. That goes for teams and players because there is always a better player and a better deal somewheres else.



P.S.

The Bengals should get off their butts and trade Palmer for some help for Andy Dalton or shore up thier defense. Whitner is in San Fran..... Get over it!!!!
