A preview of Sally Jenkins’ piece on Haynesworth


After Albert Haynesworth was suspended without pay for the last four games of the season, Washington Post Sports Columnist Sally Jenkins writes:

The Haynesworth apologists will say there are two sides to this story. But there aren’t. There is only one: Haynesworth is the very definition of “conduct detrimental to the team.” He’s a daily affront to every dedicated player in the locker room, out to do the least amount of work while collecting the most amount of money. He cheats on his contract and he cheats his teammates. Indolence is written all over him, and so is insubordination.

Redskins observers can judge for themselves whether Shanahan has asked too much of Haynesworth. What’s more important is the judgment of other Redskins players. And it’s not good.

He doesn’t care. He would be just as happy if the Redskins cut or released him next season, so he can move on down the river, like Cleopatra’s barge, to plunder another community.
