It seems that the suspension of Albert Haynesworth has opened up some old wounds for former Redskin LaVar Arrington. Tuesday evening on The LaVar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes on 106.7 The Fan, Arrington took out some frustration by once again calling out former Redskins coach Joe Gibbs.
Arrington reflected back on an instance during his final season in Washington when he was called to a meeting with Gibbs prior to a game against Kansas City. LaVar was under the impression that Gibbs would reclaim him to a starting position, instead Gibbs proposed a separation.
Arrington went on to say:
“I dislike Joe Gibbs for a lot of the things he did behind the scenes that no one will ever know about or ever hear about and they can keep their nice little image of what they think Joe Gibbs is and that’s cool, but I could tell, part of me was like I know this isn’t Joe Gibbs”
Arrington implied Gibbs was a puppet in the matter with Snyder pulling the strings. He continued to calling Gibbs saying:
“If Joe Gibbs is the man of God he says he is, he will sit there and confirm that, that took place in Kansas City, they told me to walk away from the team”
Arrington has not been shy about his strained relationship with Joe Gibbs and Dan Snyder. In November of 2008 he is quoted to have said “I called Joe Gibbs a coward for leaving. You came in, you made some money for your NASCAR team. No one else is going to say that”.
