    Not a cool move at all. Might be at least 2 games. No excuse but TN is just losing and people get tired of losing.

    Haynesworth has some serious issues.
    I remember a few years back he kicked a teamate who was on the ground during training camp.
    That's all class.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    OUTRAGE BUILDS OVER HAYNESWORTH HOP
    pft.com

    We've received a flood of e-mails this evening from readers who were astounded by the gross display of criminal violence that played out on LP Field Sunday afternoon.

    For those of you who missed it, Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth stomped on the face of Cowboys center Andre Gurode, opening a gash that per published reports required 30 stitches to close.
    We've finally seen the entire video -- despite reports that Gurode's helmet came off, it's clear the Haynesworth had a role in forcibly removing it.
    And then Haynesworth put his cleats on Gurode's head not once but twice.

    It's possible that Gurode had been holding Haynesworth all afternoon or, as we've heard about other centers, grabbing Haynesworth's frank and beans during and/or after plays.
    Regardless, Haynesworth's actions were beyond anything that should occur on a football field, and he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.


    In order to ensure that this one doesn't get brushed under the rug by the powers-that-be in Tennessee, we encourage all concerned readers to make your voices heard.

    How, you aks?
    By contacting the chief law enforcement official directly:

    Victor S. (Torry) Johnson III
    District Attorney General

    Washington Square, Suite 500
    222 2nd Avenue North
    Nashville, Tennessee 37201-1649
    Phone (615) 862-5500
    Fax (615) 862-5599

    We'll post the text of the letter we send.
    Ideally, readers in Nashville (i.e., voters) will send in their own.

    UPDATE:
    Thanks to a reader who explored the web site a bit more carefully than we did, there's a page that allows a crime to be reported.
    Why don't we all fill the thing out and send it in?
    (We just did.)

    Meanwhile, we've found something in the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy that, in theory, permits the league to jettison Haynesworth, if it so chooses.
    In a provision addressing "Persons Engaged in Violent Activity in the Workplace," the Policy states that "[c]riminal conduct in the workplace or against other employees is prohibited," and that "[a]ny Covered Person who commits or threatens violent acts against co-workers, regardless of whether an arrest is made or criminal charges are brought, shall be subject to evaluation, counseling and discipline, including termination from employment."

    Including termination from employment.

    Think about it.
    If you stand up right now and go over to the guy who makes that weird sound when he sips his coffee, throw him to the ground, and jam your shoe repeatedly on his face until he has a 30-stitch gash, your jiggly butt would be fired before they even start cleaning the blood off of the carpet.

    So why should Haynesworth get a pass?
    Violence is violence.
    "Losing it" on a football field is no different than "losing it" in a factory.
    And if a guy loses it in that manner, he should lose his job -- just like your or I would.

    He also should go to jail.
    Just like you or I would.

    To the new Commissioner, we say that this is a prime opportunity to put your own thumbprint on the league just as plainly as your signature is on the official game ball.
    Don't call Paul Tagliabue and ask him what he would have done.
    This atmosphere of tolerance festered on his watch.


    Instead, you should set your jaw, clench your teeth, and fire Albert Haynesworth.

    Will the union make a fuss?
    If they do, who cares?
    If they want to come off as soft on such serious issues at a time when the league is becoming a spin-off of America's Most Wanted, let 'em.

    Besides, as Gene Upshaw and company wrestle with advocating the rights of a guy who'd already be a license plate specialist but for his God-given size and skills, what about the rights of Andre Gurode?

    It's easy for other players to side with their union brothers in disputes against "the man."
    In this specific case, however, the players are more likely to identify with the victim than with the perpetrator.

    And the one thing we can guarantee is that, if Haynesworth isn't fired, something like what he did on Sunday eventually will happen again.

    FISHER TO DEAL WITH HAYNESWORTH IF LEAGUE DOESN'T
    pft.com

    Earlier on Sunday, we suggested that pro football is becoming a circus, since many of the performers belong in cages.

    In the early games, one of the performers pulled a Siegfried and Roy when Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth stomped on the face of Cowboys center Andre Gurode, opening a 30-stitch gash.

    Gurode's helmet had come off during a play in which Cowboys running back Julius Jones scored a touchdown. Haynesworth responded by stomping on Gurode's exposed head with his right foot.


    Haynesworth was angered by the fact that a flag was thrown, and he took off his own helmet (unfortunately, no one stomped on his face) and threw it to the ground, drawing another flag.
    He then was ejected.



    Peter King of NBC reports that Titans coach Jeff Fisher told Cowboys coach Bill Parcells after the game that, if the league doesn't take care of the situation appropriately, Fisher will take matters into his own hands.
    The CBA permits a four-game suspension without pay for conduct detrimental to the team.

    After King suggested that the league will fine Haynesworth $25,000 for the incident, Cris Collinsworth intervened, arguing that the incident should be treated as a crime.


    We agree.
    Why shouldn't Gurode file a criminal complaint against Haynesworth?
    If one fan had stomped on another fan's face in the stands at LP Field, he'd be prosecuted.
    Haynesworth should be, too.

    And it's all further evidence, as a league insider told us on Saturday, that the league is in danger of rotting from the inside out.
    With 100-plus Division I programs pushing out 10-20 seniors every year, there are more than enough capable and competent football players to fill up the ranks of pro football.
    Thus, the guys who can't or won't comply with the rules that the rest of us honor each and every day need to be dealt with swiftly and harshly.

    Otherwise, folks will start following other sports.
    Including us.

    Cowboys | Gurode required stitches above his eye
    Sun, 1 Oct 2006 18:26:26 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Dallas Cowboys OG Andre Gurode (head) required stitches above his left eye during the Week 4 game after Tennessee Titans DL Albert Haynesworth stomped on his face. Gurode was unable to return to the game because of blurry vision. Titans head coach Jeff Fisher apologized for Haynesworth's actions and Haynesworth was remorseful for what he did. "If they suspend me that's fine. Because for what I did, whatever they give me, I deserve it. I did it and it's wrong. That's not the game of football that's not how it's supposed to be played. I let my team down," Haynesworth said.

    Titans | Fisher promises to punish Haynesworth if league does not
    Sun, 1 Oct 2006 18:43:30 -0700

    Peter King, reporting for NBC Sports, reports Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher promised Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells he would punish Titans DL Albert Haynesworth if he feels the NFL does not do enough to punish him. Haynesworth stomped on Cowboys OG Andre Gurode's (head) face during the Week 4 game and was ejected. Fisher was outraged by Haynesworth's actions and apologized after the game. King believes Haynesworth will receive a severe fine but not a suspension.
