Default Haynesworth isn't a slave...

40 acres and a mule, or $100 mil. Hmmm.....


CBSSports.com wire reports
Sep. 25, 2010
WASHINGTON -- Albert Haynesworth said Saturday his $100 million contract doesn't make him a slave to the Washington Redskins.

In an interview with 106.7 The Fan, the two-time All-Pro defensive tackle said the big paychecks don't mean he can't push back when the team asks him to play a different position.

Haynesworth, who rarely speaks to the media, was upset this year when the Redskins switched to a 3-4 defense and told him he would be playing nose tackle.

Haynesworth protested by staying away from the team's offseason conditioning program and practices. He also skipped a mandatory minicamp and was unable to pass the team's conditioning test until the 10th day of training camp - all despite receiving a $21 million bonus on April 1.

"I guess in this world we don't have a lot of people with, like, backbones," Haynesworth said. "Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want or whatever. I mean, does that mean everything is for sale?

"I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but ... that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever."

Haynesworth said it was agreed that he would play defensive tackle in a 4-3 system when he signed with the Redskins in 2009, but the team has since overhauled its front office, coaching staff and offensive and defensive schemes. He said he now likes the new scheme better as he works with defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.

Haynesworth made a passing reference to his disputes with coach Mike Shanahan, saying some things "went down with me and Mike," but he did not elaborate. He also said he doesn't like the spotlight and would rather be someone who can just "go to Wal-Mart and hang out."

Haynesworth implied he would be playing in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. He was used as a backup in the season opener against Dallas and missed last week's game against Houston with a sprained ankle

Force him to push the sled for 200 yards....preferably on a really hot day.

5 times in a row.

Going up against Mike Shanahan? He is not only a diva, but very very stupid.

Did he really just have the audacity to compare him being asked to play a different position while being paid $100 mil. to slavery?

If you signed a contract, then yes it does.

OMGZ! Shanahan is ruiningz the teem!

Seriously Albert just needs to play. If he is that miserable in DC, he should play this season and ask to be moved in the offseason. Its not like Snyder or Mike are going to care about eating that size of a caphit. That silly ass.

Dumb ****ing ####### I must say. That ****er should be selling drugs on the street. He is as big of POS as I can think of and I can't believe I wanted Denver to sign him.

Albert needs a lesson in perspective, and it looks like Shanny has been trying to give him one.

Maybe he should go stand in the unemployment line with people who would love to be "slaves". Like a team has to maintain the defensive formation for one player. Please.

if being forced to play NT instead of DT for 21 million constitutes as being a slave, then I will gladly be a slave

It's because it's a lot of money that he will be relieved of it. He's too dumb and there are way too many slick dudes out there that will, like sharks, take big bites.

I'd like to think the bolded part is simply "F vcker", but between that and "DFN", I'm pretty sure I have a good idea what it was. Take a week and think about these things, man. You are better than this.

banned....nice to see that **** like this won't be stood for...

anyway....point is, I think we all agree that Haynesworth is on a different planet, where mulit-millionaire athletes who don't like their personal numbers being affected by defensive scheme somehow relates to a race of people who were taken from their homeland and forced to perform manual labor for no pay

Haynesworth should have stated in that juicy $100 million contract that he will only play in a 4-3 defense or he gets traded or released without bonus. I am sure he wouldnt go for that as not too many teams/owners are willing to pay that kind of cashe. You signed it regardless of who was coach and what system was in place. Things change. Does he want to win or just look good playing in a 4-3?
