I think that's awfully far-fetched. As egomaniacal and self-concerned some NFL players can be, I think the vast majority genuinely want to play in every game and perform at their best. Shit, people do all sorts of crazy and harmful stuff to their bodies just to stay on the field. I just can't see Albert sitting out to prove a point. And if he did that, then **** him, we should let him walk. You're a paid professional, and that means you show up and bust your ass regardless. You don't decide not to play a couple games to teach someone a lesson. That would be bushleague.
