And so the Haynesworth drama continues….
Union officials confirmed Thursday that the Players Association did indeed file a grievance for Redskins suspended defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth.
Washington suspended Haynesworth on December 7th for what was termed as conduct detrimental to the team in other words for being one great big giant pain in the you know what. Honestly the only thing surprising about the suspension to me was that it did not happen sooner than it did.
This drama has been going on since it was first made known that the Redskins would be switching to a 3-4 defense going in to this season. Any chance he got he verbally voiced his displeasure of having to play in the 3-4, missed preseason voluntaries (despite the name its known they are really mandatory), missed practices, asked to be traded, constantly talked about how he wished he was still in Tennessee and fought with his coaches.
For goodness sakes the day before he was suspended he informed Redskins GM that he would no longer talk to head coach Mike Shanahan. What did they expect would happen to him? It has been said that Haynesworth refuses to follow instructions, refuses to play on certain plays and certain packages and so on and so on. It was constant nonstop drama with Albert Haynesworth.
Under this suspension Haynesworth would forfeit 4 game checks which evidently equals out to a little more than $847,000. So now they will be heading to arbitration to determine whether the Redskins suspension should be valid or not.
Honestly Haynesworth man just give it up you have been stealing money from the Redskins long enough so lets just let it go so you all can both just part ways….
