Media lies about LaVar


CowboySlayer

Recommended Posts

In this morning's Virginian-Pilot sports section, I was elated at the news I saw, quoting LaVar as saying with the signing and retention of the coaching staff and his love of the fans, he was willing to take a drastic pay cut to stay with the team. The joy wore off fast when on the news at noon, he was on there saying he never said that, and although he would love nothing more than to stay in D.C., he didn't see any way it would happen. This is another example of why I hate the media. My day went down the hill in a hurry when LaVar confirmed it was a lie. Why does freedom of the press give them the right to lie without punishment? :mad:

after the seattle game, he said he would be willing to do whatever it takes to remain a redskin, so he might have never said he wanted to take a drastic paycut to stay with the team, but he sure has implied it. Hopefully things will work out and he remains a skins til the end of his career.

I doubt he'd take a drastic paycut but he did say he was open to renegotiating his contract. He also did say that he really wanted to stay with the team. Contrast his attitude with Roland, The Toe or 50-50 and I'm beginning to once again have hope that Mr. Redskin will in fact still be with the team come 2006.

guys, he is not going to take a paycut. No one ever does, and to expect otherwise from lavar is unfair. Snyder signed a contract, lavar should expect him to honor it.

LaVar did say that he was willing to restructure, which is what I think he was implying with his statement about doing whatever it takes. He wants to be a redskin as much as anyone else on the team.

I agree completely. I love Lavar (obviously) and if he would renegotiate his contract it would benefit the team and show some true character on his part.

I would like to see Lavar back but the stats don't lie. Last year we were 3rd ranked defense and LA never touched the field. This year I think we were 8th or 9th. I say we deal Lavar and add a pass rusher or, OL or a #2 receiver.

last time i checked, 4 games counted as touching the field. he didn't get a sack and 18 tackles from the bench....I mean, he's good and all, but nobody is THAT good. We are better with LaVar because of his ability to play almost any defensive position. With LaVar on D, opponents reviewing game tape is useless, because he's an amazing talent, and is completely impossible to stop or predict, because he can be anywhere, and always has been when he's played.

They can also renegotiate his contract, being that 2007 has no cap. DS can do any write off he wants considering he knows something about law, as long as the 2006 season makes the cap on paper, anything can be worked out in 2007.

It's just a matter if LA will go for that or not. :whoknows:

He never said he'd do whatever it takes, he said the lines of communication were open and he's willing to "talk" with the team.

That my friend was due in large part in one Antonio Pierce, not L.A.

Sometimes I think some of you are on drugs. Lavar CANNOT play 'almost any defensive position'. Linebacker is all he plays. He's still a linebacker when he's rushing the passer. Dont try and convince me he can play defensive end and definately dont tell me he can play tackle. He cant play cornerback and certainly not safety, whats left????????? Get off his jock! Yea, he's very talented but GIVE ME A BREAK!

Last year we had Pierce, this year we had Holdman. You do the math.

No. Lemar Marshall played in LaVar's place last year while Pierce played great at MLB. This year Lemar played great at MLB and Holdman played poorly in LaVar's spot. If he had played great, I'm not sure LaVar would have ever seen the field this year.

Is there a link to this, I would like to read the article. That news would have had me feeling good too. Sucks that you had to go through that.

I think he meant the difference between the overall LB corps last year and the one this year is the absence of Pierce and the addition of Holdman...Washington and Marshall were part of both, even if Marshall's position changed.

I don't know about "almost any defensive position" but he had his highest career sack total playing defensive end for Marvin Lewis. Not that I'm trying to convince you or anything. . . ;)
