I remember a bunch of caring when it happened. Also a career ending (it was supposed to be anyway) neck injury is a little different category than a swole foot. For the jack Larry got this off-season he could have at least pretended. He hasn't done much else to justify that cash yet.

It's a bit different, not a lot, but some. As to the crowd, of course they were chanting for Priest, he was the greatest RB the Chiefs have had for quite a while and he was filling in for a disappointing, less than personable, RB on a team with a cover-your-eyes bad O.

They're professionals, but not robots. What kind of message do you think that sends to his teammates? "If the chips are down, I don't give a f***, I'm too good to suffer through this with you guys."

Randy Moss walked off the field early during a game in which he was playing in while with the Raiders. Do you think the Patriots players don't want him on their team?

Speaking of character, Bill Belicheck is probably the biggest sleaze bag prick in the NFL but I'm willing to bet that 99.9999999% of Chiefs fans would kill to have him as our HC.

The thing is; the Chiefs KNEW this before they rolled an armored truck up to his stoop. They could have traded him. Everybody in America except for the Chiefs knew this was a rebuilding program. Why not maximize your ROA at the peak value? Stupid move. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. This franchise is going to be paying for LJ 2 years after he's traded his cleats for a microphone.

The Raiders didn't. Like LJ, Moss is a guy that is fine when things are going well. When things get tough, he quits. You can't afford to have too many players like that on your team. This team sucks, so we can afford very few of those players if we want to improve.

LJ didn't quit? It looked that way to me in a couple of our more pathetic running games this year.

I think if LJ would have been healthy last game, he probably would've wound up with maybe 10-15 more yards than Holmes. He would've broken a couple of long runs, and then had a collection of 1 to 2 yard losses.

Priest doesn't have the legs anymore, but it doesn't look like he's mailing it in out there either.

I hope LJ turns it around, attitude and stats. As Phobia pointed out, we paid him a ton of $, so he may as well succeed for us.

If Jason Whitlock was a real journalist, he would be fighting for the publics right to know. There is a clause in the Collective Bargaining Agreement any injured player may be required to undergo medical treatment and quarterbacks may be required to attend coaches meetings.

Alas, Whitlock's writing makes him unhappy unless he's feeding the readers fireworks. I think it's real simple for him to say, "Kansas City’s highest-paid player limped out the front door of Arrowhead Stadium to his $450,000 Maybach 62 and chauffer (small furnace)" and get an amount of support from his base.

Even if Whitlock claims to believe it, how can I, if he's not abiding by the rules of reporting the game? Unless Whitlock has a clear view from the pressbox to the parking lot, the only thing taking a harder hit that his 'Maybach 62 with the small furnace' is his credibility.

He is entitled to have and express whatever opinions he has, but his excessive hatred for L.J plays into the hands of his peers who dislike the most.

I don't know, regardless of how much filming went on, he was cheating and had been told it was cheating and to quit and kept at it. His relationship to Man-Slightly Retarded hasn't been the kind of thing a good person does (although Mangino ain't smelling of roses either) and childish. Or, if we're talking about personal worth, the whole cheating with someone else's wife deal fits the sleazy label pretty good. He's a pretty good coach, no argument, but he's definitely a sleazebag.

I'm not 100% on details, but there was a nasty divorce where Bill was porking some guys wife and he filed for divorce. Bill sent her gifts and the like, it wasn't a "I love you Bill, lets be together forever" deal. More like gifts and ass. It sounded like Bill had chased her and kept up the pressure when the husband tried to make her break it up. Unseemly at best.

First off, let me say that I don't think this is that huge of a deal. Him sitting and watching the team from a suite or not has absolutely no impact on the cohesiveness of the team, IMO. They are battling, and even if he were to show up after the game in the lockerroom, I doubt they'd take much notice of it, as alienated as he is anyway. It's not like he was running around on the sideline helping guys out and then bailed.

However, this is a great illustration of why I have no problem when fans use the term "we" when talking about their team. It is obvious, and it always has been that fans, in many cases, are far more invested in the team than the players. I for one, and many sitting in that stadium stayed till the very bitter end. I will never leave a game early, no matter if we are getting blown out, or whatever... and I know many out there, or even at home in front of a TV that feel the same. So this story, as I said, is just a further illustration of why I think it's okay for fans to use the first person when talking about the team.
