If I were the Redskins, I would cut his fat ass, and then sue to get back most of the bonus they paid him, because he obviously has not been acting in good faith.

I'm watching NFL Network right now, and Rich, Simon, Jason started off the day's talk surrounded by Haynesworth accepting $21M bonus check and not honoring his end of the deal - just pathetic!!

I've been following this story for about a week, and there's not been one episode coverage that's gone bye without a camera close up shot of (him) standing on the sidelines, looking like he's about to cry. A 300+ lbs man, crying. He can't hide behind his supposed frown without looking like a spoiled pork eating sycophant!!!

Go New York Giants to 2010 victory!!

I'm a sports fan - period. And players are disrespecting fans intelligence by not bargaining in good faith. There's no telling just how long an opportunity like playing sports will last. I'm sick of making of players virtually stealing a ridiculous amount of money from the league, and then turn around, hypocritically telling young kids to stay in school!!

Albert should do the only right thing: "Give the money back"!! Follow his dreams of becoming an aerobic instructor for pork eaters!!!

This is pretty bad when Cowboys, Giants and Eagles fans are joining in to bash a player who is screwing their rival. Fat Albert doesn't have a friend anywhere (except the Benjamin guy in his pocket)!

I just don't get it...I really, don't! Albert was paid (no practically, given to him, a fat $21M bonus)!

Was Albert abused by his boss...!!??!!

There is not 1 excuse of 21,000,000,000 that he can say that will convince anyone that justifies his reason for stealing from the Redskins organization!!

I really don't care if Albert shows up for training camp or not, its' just that his actions is messing with the integrity of the game.

There are many of us (in the real world) who have jobs that aren't highly thought of, yet because of one's need to eat, his and her personal preferences are placed lower on the priority list.

I'm sure that coach Shanahan, could careless what physical shape Albert shows up in - the reality is: "ALBERT HAS BECOME A PAIN IN THE ASS!!"

What can Albert say to soothe over hard feelings!!??!! Nothing!! If I were a team mate of (his) I wouldn't trust him, in fact I'd much rather keep my distance for fear of becoming poisoned by Albert's childish behavior!!

If I ran an organization (in this case the Washington Redskins)..in which a player is reluctant to follow through on his end of the contract agreement (no matter the reason), there is no way that I'm allowing him to set foot on the premises. In fact, I'm quite prepared to go into litigation and recoup my losses.

Albert, including anyone else are not entitled to suggest, encourage, display any conduct that is deem disruptive and detrimental to my organization.

Albert has got to be kidding to think that I (that is if I were) part of the (Redskins, in this case) would expend energy seeking another team in which his skill level could better serve.

ALL I WANT IS MY MONEY BACK AND HIM HITTING THE ROAD!

Excellent column by Hamilton. When it's demanded, as in this case, take your literary sword and plunge into the chest of the person who seeks your abuse.
Don't want it Albert? Don't like it Albert? Don't scream out for it.
I had a father that lost both parents very early in life. He had to live an extemely tough upbringing, fought in WWII, raised a family on a little more than a beggers wage, gave every penny to his family unless my mother forced him to take some for himself for his undying devotion, had the wear and tear of it all take his life at a way to early time, and I'm suppose to FEEL SORRY FOR YOU?!!! Give me the knife, I'll plunge it myself.

Albert has misled the Redskin organization, stating that he although not in attending training camp, has on his own participated in a physical regiment conditioning routine, and that when Albert does decide to show up for training camp he be in sound physical shape...

He's failed twice to prove his physical stamina capabilities, only to have made the whole work out process look like a big fat joke.

Message to Albert...Get off them doughnuts man!!! I see the powder sugar all over your lips!!

Go New York Giants to 2010 victory!!

I cannot believe that anone making the money he is would not be willing to bust his ass 24/7/365. I know people will get angry with me for saying this, but if it had a white man signing this contract, there would not be these attitude problem, he would be thankful.

I want to give all the credit in the world to your father, he was the kind of person that made America great back when it was great. I know you miss him a lot, you will see him again in Heaven someday.
