[QUOTE]In Response to Why SO much hate for Haynesworth? : ========================================================== Are you serious?? This guy is nothing but a 6`6 350# wallking pile of dog crap. I pray that he blows BOTH knees out before he makes the team.It ticks me off that BB puts us in a situation where we have to root for this sad excuse of a human.Here`s a link to a list of some of his "indescretions" http://patsblog.projo.com/2011/07/the-albert-hayn.html
And then ask me why all the hate.

Exactly what I was looking for, thank you. And this is my point! Throw out the fights with teammates, most coaches applaud, and try to create that thing every training camp, but Haynesworth is the bad guy for being a part of it.
He certsinly has road rage issues. But the running the car off the road charges were dropped, and he punched another @hole in the face, both were wrong. He also caused a guy to be paralyzed, that's pretty bad. He was speeding, 100 in a 70. I've done 123 down the Pike, not that it's ok, but EVERYONE speeds, or has, he got into a bad accident where most of us are lucky enough to avoid such things. Again, so much worse because HE did it.
Impregnated the stripper? Nothing to do with anything.
Fondled the waitress? Arrogant, jerky behavior. Kind of like drilling a hole to see into the cheerleaders' locker room, where was that? Philly?
And Mawae, one of the dirtiest, scumbaggiest players ever to don a uniform was oen of the combatants? Why don't people blame him for that one, the guy intentionally broke Ted Washington's leg while he was here.
I'm not saying it's all ok, I've stated clearly that I will not cheer the man for the Gurode incident which, to me, is the only truly bad thing. Quitting as he has in the past is a close second.
And Patseng, I never said I didn't get why people are bringing it up, my question is about the amount of attention it's gotten. Now, to be fair, as I've stated, I get most of my sports info from here as the TV shows mostly stink, and the writing is even worse for the paid scribes...that being said, I read a lot of comments, and saw a lot of threads about how this guy is the equivalent to the devil on the football field, and I just don't see it. Wasn't involved, to some degree, in a murder like Ray Lewis. A drunk driving death like leonard Little. Doesn't have the offspring of a Cromartie. Didn't plan a drive by on the stripper like Carruth.
I understand and acknowledge what he has done wrong, but I feel some people blow it way out of proportion because of his talent, and the contract he was given. People took it so far as to criticize BB and the team, and state they've sacrificed their integrity to make such a trade, with I think is laughable.
Whoever mentioned London Fletcher, ok I'll give you that one. He was a respected, good player in the NFL. But he was the only one you could come up with, and that's kind of my point. Shanahan wasn't there when he got their, and I, personally, do not think Shanahan is anywhere near the level of BB. Shanahan is what BB detractors try to make him out to be, he rode the wave of Elway, the team totally disappeared for 10 years after he retired, yet Shanahan still garners a ton of respect. BB has done it faster, longer, without the QB, and the team is trending UP after ten years and three rings, not the same level to me, not even close.
Now after Ocho, Nnamdi and other moves, this is less of an issue, but for about a 24 hour period I kept hearing how the Pats sold their souls and the organization was showing it's true colors. Hilarious.
