The Crybaby Club

I’m not only a member, I’m also the President.
For every great story in sports, for every great athlete we view as a role model, we have a Terrel Owens. This past week Anquan Boldin and Julius Peppers joined TO in the “crybaby” club. A look back at their summers eve moments.

“Who cares about the Super Bowl? I got 4 looks all game? Hell No!

There may be no I in team, but there sure is one in Boldin. This guy probably out did TO as the most ME FIRST player in the history of football! He’s going to bitch about playing time and touches while his team is driving for the winning TD in the NFC Championship game? And after winning he’s going to go crying in the locker room instead of celebrating with his teammates? Come on man, it was admirable returning from a broken face, but someone should re-break it. You want answers? Here’s an answer for you. If I’m the coach of the Cardinals, your ass is benched for the Super Bowl.

Wow…well before that happened we had Julius Peppers grandstanding for himself. Evidently Peppers speaks a different language than us, one known as bullshit.

Please allow me to translate this Julius Peppers article.

“The front office has been informed of my desire to explore opportunities with other NFL teams following the expiration of my contract next month,”

Translation: Carolina can F off with that low ball offer that is on the table.
I’ll spread my legs for the highest bidder. Carolina can kiss my taint after 3 hours of practice!

“At this point in my NFL career, I am seeking new challenges that will allow me to grow, develop and reach my personal potential on the football field.

Translation: If my stats don’t look good enough it’s not my fault. The Carolina defense is the problem. I’m getting old and this is my last chance to score big money!

“I strongly feel that making a move at this time is in my best interest. I appreciate the entire Panthers organization and I am thankful for the seven seasons I’ve spent with the team.”

Translation: I will come back to Carolina in a heartbeat, all they need to do is “show me the money.”

“Julius is firm in his decision that he needs a change,” Carey said. “He feels that he can thrive in another system. While he has been selected to four Pro Bowls and designated as an All-Pro during his career, he feels that he has yet to develop to his full potential. This is the case of a great player who seeks to become an elite one.”

Translation: Julius is a bad mofo, who wants to be the highest paid DE ever. No one knows who I am, I’m his agent, Carl Carey. I came up with this quote after referencing Julius’s football-reference page. I’m gonna score him a huge contract and maybe pick up some of Drew Rosenhaus’s crumbs.

“Obviously, Carl’s comments are disappointing,” Hurney said. “We have consistently reiterated to Carl in a number of ways how much we value Julius and we plan to continue having ongoing communications.”

Translation: We are not going to franchise him @ 17 million this year. You know what we are willing to pay. Go ahead and shop him around and come back to us with at least a 1rst and 3rd round trade offer. Oh yeah, kiss my taint after sitting on my ass for 10 hours on draft day!

My question to you Skin’s fans is this. Would you like to see Peppers in a Redskin’s jersey? He has had some awesome seasons, and when his game is on he’s one of the best. But, he also posted a 2.5 sack season in 2007. So, would you trade a 1rst and 3rd for him?

Cheers and Hail
