Default From the Wtf department ... Tiki Barber coming out of retirement

http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/n...ory?id=6193850


Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber has filed papers to come out of retirement and try to revive his NFL career, his agent Mark Lepselter confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.

Barber, who turns 36 in April, hasn't played since the 2006 season with the Giants, where he spent his entire 10-year career. Most recently he had been a correspondent for "The Today Show" and "Sunday Night Football" on NBC before the network did not renew his contract. He has been doing video work for Yahoo! Sports.

He was out of the limelight. He wants to be in the limelight. He will fail horribly and I will laugh.

Ditto ... and talk about one of the worst timed retirements of all time.

You retire and then they win it all . Brilliant ...

Yep.

I saw this on CNNSI earlier today. I didn't read the ESPN article until just now so I didn't realize ESPN didn't mention this:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...#ixzz1G2WkuQm0

Barber's personal and professional life have been in shambles recently. In April 2010, Barber reportedly left his wife of 11 years, Ginny, for 23-year-old Traci Johnson, a former NBC intern. Ginny was eight months pregnant at the time. Soon after, NBC cited its morals clause and terminated Barber's contract, which reportedly paid him more than $300,000 per year.

In June 2010, the New York Post reported Barber was broke and couldn't pay his divorce settlement with his ex-wife.

Barber was booed by fans this past season when Giants unveiled their ring of honor in their new $1.6 billion stadium.

On NFL Live, Antonio Pierce - RIPPED Tiki, ... I laughed so hard, I almost cried...



Pierce: "Tiki Barber, the leader, the person in that locker room? He is not going to do anything for your team."
"Now if that is the guy you think you are bringing in, you might want to look in another direction,"
"From personal experience, he didn't do anything to help the Giants [in] 2006 when he decided to retire in the middle of the season and then months later question our quarterback and our head coach. That is my problem with Tiki Barber ... the guy can play. Can he do it four years later? I don't think he can."

Dude thought he was smarter than everyone else around him. You can see it in his interviews and his body language. Watching him talk makes me feel like were supposed to be in awe by the fact that deigned to talk to us. I hope nobody signs him, he needs to reflect on his dumbassery for awhile.

I don't get why people make title threads that have nothing to do with the topic of the thread. I figured that there would be a duplicate thread at some point.
