Default Larry Johnson, Chiefs working on 'settlement'

Larry Johnson and the Chiefs are working on a settlement to decide the running back's future, Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, told The Star in an e-mail Thursday.

Asked whether that settlement would involve a separation from the team, Schaffer said: "Not necessarily."

Schaffer said Johnson's side is working on an appeal of the two-week suspension the team handed down Wednesday for detrimental conduct. Schaffer said Wednesday night that he hoped an appeal would be filed early Thursday, and it's possible that settlement talks could delay that appeal.

Johnson would lose more than $600,000 if he serves the full two-week suspension. He also could face further punishment from the league and the Chiefs when this suspension expires Nov. 9.

The Chiefs wouldn't comment on Johnson or his situation Thursday.

So if he's released would you want him on your team?

Once again, even though I think Larry Johnson is a dink, I still think this goes way too far considering Larry Johnson can get dinged for not talking to the media. The league tries to have it both ways. They fine a guy for not talking to the media and then when he says something they dont like or that they dont agree with, they suspend him and ding him for a lot of money. Something's wrong with that.

That's like me cussing out a customer on the phone and then telling my boss "well you can't punish me... you said I needed to call him!"

This was a post-game interview, pretty much a standard part of the job for an NFL player, especially one of the supposed stars on a team. You really think it's unreasonable to ask him to not act like a bigot?

Talking to customers is (presumably) your job. Larry Johnson's job is to run forward with a ball while angry men hit him. Being good at the later does not correlate to the former in the slightest.

Doesn't matter. He is supposed to be a part of the team and stuff like this is handled internally. You don't put it out to the rest of the world unless you're an idiot.

He's in a Pro Football and he's under contract with the Chefs. Whatever rules the NFL imposed must be follow and act like a professional. He is an idot.

He would be a classic Belly signing even more so now that Taylor is out for the season.

That or Cutler will demand that duh bears sign him to give him a running game.

Texans... gives Kubes a RB that can hold on to the ball and score TDs. Kubes is on record in wishing he would have gone after Ced Benson.

I think Lex is right here. The rule should be at least 10 players must talk to the media but not ALL. Some guys don't belong out there. It's like putting a drunk in liquor store and telling him not to drink.

The whole deal started with Johnson critisizing his coaches via Twitter and then using a demeaning slang for homosexuals in a public interview. That has nothing to do with some of the things that Olbermann says.
