    Unless this is what you're referring to: "Players are reporting tonight, and we expect him," Bruce Allen said. "We expect everybody." If so, that's not being "confident" Trent was gonna show up for camp. that's little more than saying "until he's not here, we expect him to be here." It's basically a non-answer to the question of whether or not Trent will hold out.

    1) Why should a player's talent level dictate his trustworthiness? 2) I don't remember Allen saying Trent would be in training camp. He may have, but I don't recall him saying it. I remember Allen saying this, though: “I know what Trent told me so I know what the truth is," Allen said Friday. "I’ll leave my conversation with Trent between the two of us.”

    I personally think Trent made a decision based mostly on the emotion of the moment. There were sooooo many other ways he could have handled this and still reached his goal of being off the team, if not this year then next, AND he could have brought attention to any medical staff issues at the same time. he may have also felt that by being traded he could work out a new deal with his new team in which there are guarantees over the next 2 years, something he knew (or believed) wouldn't happen with Bruce. I'm not of the belief that not talking about anything until now in order to not make Snyder look bad was all that smart of a move, either lol...with all the criticism heaped on the Skins during his hold out--and a ****load more heaped on now after ending his holdout and giving an interview--he definitely did not achieve that goal.

    Bills 20 - Skins 17 Haskins looks promising. AP gets another TD to add to his career total.

    Here's another blurb about what happened about 3 yrs ago--Ii think it's the same timeframe that Casserly was talking about, but this (if accurate) fills in things a little more: "As retold by Williams, Redskins medical staff downplayed the condition as “something minor” and just a “cyst.” His comments also suggest that the team’s medical staff declined to order tests that would have revealed the seriousness of the condition. Williams went on to explain that team medical personnel eventually had the excess skin removed. When the skin was examined, the team learned that the cyst had a cancerous growth. The Redskins then sent Williams to see a specialist. By that point, the growth was “far more advanced.” "...Williams would need to prove that he was harmed in a legal sense. Even if Williams could establish that the Redskins acted unreasonably, he would not prevail in a lawsuit unless he also proved that he suffered damages. He might argue, for instance, that the delay in diagnosing him led to an expansion of the growth and greater nerve damage in its subsequent removal. Williams could also maintain that the delay makes him more susceptible to a recurrence of cancer in the future (he would need expert testimony to establish that kind of point). Alternatively, he might claim that the experience has caused him psychological distress and that such distress has negatively impacted his NFL career. His holdout, which Williams says reflected distrust of the Redskins, cost him about $7 million. On the other hand, there is no allegation (yet) that the Redskins refused to pay for any health care expenses related to Williams. Likewise, there is no reason to believe the team failed to handle costs in retaining a specialist or denied Williams a chance to obtain a second opinion. Also, the team has not released William and has been willing to pay him his contract so long as he reports to work (if the team cuts Williams, that could trigger a separate grievance procedure under Article 44 of the CBA). The Redskins can also maintain that a decision to holdout is one made by the player, not the team. Along those lines, Williams and the NFLPA could have filed a grievance against the Redskins months ago to address his concerns, long before he held out and lost money." https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/11/01/trent-williams-redskins-victim-medical-malpractice?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=themmqb&utm_medium=social
  7. Seriously what?...That I asked a hypothetical in order to get some discussion going that had zero to do with Trent's head? lol...

    While that remains true (the part in bold lol), the point I was wanting to convey was that this whole shebang didn't start when Bruce decided not to trade Trent in the summer, and it wouldn't have ended there, either. So lemme rephrase it a bit more accurately: I wish Trent had done more in terms of follow-up on health--including keeping appointments the team made for him, if true. Because if what he's saying now (or yesterday) is also true about not trusting the team anymore, doing so probably wouldn't have eroded the trust to this degree and holding out probably wouldn't have crossed his mind. Naaah, I like the first way I wrote it better lol

    Is psychoanalyzing him based on a video on the innnernets any better, though? lol...

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    I wish Trent had kept the appointments the team made for him so that he wouldn't have wanted to hold out to begin with. Or at least if he did hold out it would be obvious that it was about money and not "almost dying' due to team neglect.

    They didn't set him up...right now, it looks like they just left the door closed lol...

    Regardless of what happened, Trent should have approached this a bit differently. Seems like there are gonna be more takes like this on the horizon.
  13. I'm thinking of the people who fear ending up 4-12 because "we may not even end up picking in the top 10!" lol...mind you, they fully want Haskins to ball out, they just want the Skins to keep losing while he does.

    It would be easier and quicker for me to show you the people on my twitter timeline and even in this thread who were not doing that lol..
  15. Out of curiosity, since Haskins is now starting....let's say he surprises and leads the team to a 6-2 record the rest of the way. Are you pissed? lol...

    What's wild to me (although it shouldn't be) is that there's been an almost 180 degree turn in the narrative among fans here and on twitter. Or rather, it's gone from "Bruce Allen and the Redskins disgust me, this should get him thrown out the door, how can anyone defend this garbage franchise?" nonstop on my twitter feed, to... Nobody is saying **** anymore lol...the few tweets I run across about how disgusting and dysfunctional Bruce, Dan, and the Redskins are were posted 22 hrs ago. I assume word is starting to get around that there are legit reasons to--at the very least--not jump to any conclusions yet about what Trent said or about how "disgusting" this proves Bruce really is. And you KNOW the pendulum is gonna swing back the other way in a few more days lol... That's why I think it's best to just ride things out and wait and see what develops.

    To be fair, he's been rather neutral on this from what I could tell, and that was before the Casserly/Keim stuff.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    You asked how Casserly would have seen Trent's medical records...I pointed out that nothing he said would require him to have seen them.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    You don't need to see anyone's medical records to know if someone was advised to get an issue checked out further and they never set the appointment.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    yeah, I said something similar about 274 pages ago lol...this thread has taken off. However, his change of perspective doesn't change reality. Playing without any guarantees is the result of him signing the contract he signed. If he had a career-ending injury 30 minutes after signing it he would be paid a boatload of money for not playing a down. That would be a consequence for the Skins for signing him to that contract. That's what they're doing now with Smith. If Bruce took the same attitude towards guaranteeing Smith's salary after his injury that Trent it taking towards not having any guaranteed money, fans would destroy him and ridicule him by saying "That's why you never should have signed him to that contract, idiot!"

    That Casserly clip is rather damning...it was almost as if the other three guys in that video were taken off-guard lol. And he's right about signing a contract knowing ahead of time the last two years were not guaranteed. He and/or his agent should have put triggers into the contract that would guarantee each of the last two years in some form or fashion...like makes the Pro Bowl and plays 90% of the games or some ****.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Actually, flipping the question would be do you think Cousins misses the Redskins fans?
