    [size=14pt]Giants suspend wide receiver Burress for insubordination[/size]
    Posted: Wednesday September 24, 2008 9:48AM; Updated: Wednesday September 24, 2008 2:56PM

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for missing a workout earlier in the week. His agent insisted the receiver had an undisclosed family emergency and will appeal the ban to the NFL Players Association.

    Because the unbeaten Giants have a bye this weekend, Burress will miss the Oct. 5 game against Seattle if the suspension is upheld.

    The Giants refused to say why Burress was suspended, but agent Drew Rosenhaus claimed the nine-year veteran did not attend Monday's workout because of a family emergency that has now been resolved.

    The suspension took effect immediately, meaning Burress will not be allowed to return to team activities until the day after the Seahawks game. He will miss two paychecks, totaling $235,294.12 of his $2 million annual base salary.
    Ahhhhh....douchebag!
    On KFAN they also said that the team didn't hear from him until this morning, and calls placed to his agent and his home went unreturned on Monday and Tuesday.

    Sound familiar to anyone?
    Sounds like Troy "Hands of Stone" Williamson, except Plax doesn't suck.

    Everyone has emergencies. Workout?! We are talking about workout. Not a game. Workout? Not at a game that he goes out and plays 110%. We are talking about a workout.

    He still has a responsibility to inform the team.
    How hard is that?

    It is as hard as taking 1 minute out of the 1,140 provided in a day.
    It would involve pressing 10 digits on a cell phone.
    For a million dollar baby - impossible.

    I work at a fast food restaurant and we have teenagers who make $8/hour who are able to call when an emergency comes up...

    From the sounds of it the cops have been called on him and been out to his place a few times in the last month due to his wife calling the fuzz.
    He was most likely busy entertaining them or having make up sex with the wifey...Just a guess of course
