Cromartie loses grievance

Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie lost a grievance Wednesday filed by his former agent Jason Fletcher, according to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.

NFL arbitrator Roger Kaplan ruled that Cromartie must pay Fletcher at least $32,000 in back fees. 

The 2007 Pro Bowler is currently the subject of trade rumors despite a decent 2009 campaign.

Cromartie claimed in the grievance it was a financial hardship to pay the overdue fees, hinting at deeper monetary problems.  Cromartie has seven children spread across five states and was named in at least five paternity suits, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. 

His current agent, Gary Wichard, said back in July all of the suits have been addressed.  “It’s all part of the simplification process,” Wichard said. “Everyone will be taken care of.”

  1. Wow, guess this guy never paid attention in health class. Wear the jimmy hat. It might not feel as good but it feels better than paying for 7 kids (and potentially 5 more if I understand the article correctly).

  2. Players like Antonio Cromartie and Travis Henry, have they ever heard about a condom?
    Pick up some Trojans on your to the club..
    (Both one year wonders)

  3. If it aint the wife dont tap it if you dont wrap it
    What an ahole 7 kids and he cant keep a job
    Looks like obama has to give away more of my money to share the wealth

  4. His boys sure can swim. By the time I’m dead, 75% of the corners in the league will have the last name Cromartie, I imagine.

  5. “The issue with his former agent hints at possible financial difficulties. Cromartie has seven children spread across five states and was named in at least five paternity suits, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. ”
    Looks like he didn’t apply the “wrap up” to his personal life either!

  6. I never really thought ill of him until you said “seven children spread across five states” … what a dead beat loser.

  7. This loser has made God only knows how much money, but has to claim “financial hardship” to try and get out of a $32,000 debt.
    How simple can it be, dickhead?
    No glove, no love.

  8. I remember when this guy came out of college.
    He looked like an honorable guy when his reason for entering the draft was to help out his mom while she was suffering from breast cancer.
    Now, I don’t care if he goes broke. He hasn’t played like a guy that should be super rich.

  9. …….and stupid ESPN wonders why they want to get rid of him? Quit reading headlines and do your research and maybe you’ll find out.

  10. His sperm must be a lot less afraid of contact than he is. Also, this just in – Shawn Kemp says, “Damn, that’s a lot of kids!”

  11. “Cromartie has seven children spread across five states and was named in at least five paternity suits.”
    Didn’t he know that you need to wear your raincoat when the weather is Unpredictable?

  12. I guess if Cromarties IQ is 60 like the tutors at Florida State claim. He might not be able to figure out how to stop having all these kids. Sounds like he is trying to take over where Travis Henry left off.

  13. Not defending Cromartie ’cause after a guy gets caught once, he should figure out how to protect himself. But some women see getting pregnant by a pro athlete as a road to riches and they’ll do anything to make it happen. I’ve heard pro b’ball players tell stories about women fishing used condoms out of the trash in hopes of salvaging the contents. So it’s easy to say “No glove, no love”–but you guys probably don’t have women throwing it at you morning, noon, and night.
    Maybe the NFL needs to make some kind of “Reefer Madness”-type sex movie for rookies showing crazed women poking pinholes in condoms and selecting potential baby daddies on draft day. They could call it “Invasion of the Semen Snatchers.”

  14. Are you trying to catch up to Shaun Kemp?
    And I’m a hardcore Charger fan cracking on this guy. He needs to be traded.

  15. decent campaign must mean: dreadful tackeling, no heart, lost the confidence of everyone in the front office as well as the locker room.

  16. You guys are jealous that you don’t have strong swimmers like Cromartie. I know I am but I keep it to myself.

  17. Leave it up to an athlete who, in the prime of his career (now), should be making enough money to support him for the rest of his life, is too broke because he couldn’t just a jimmy hat and has at least 5 babies walking around. Poor kids, they deserve a better father.

  19. I’m sure all seven of those kids are going to grow up and be productive, taxpaying members of society. I mean, why wouldn’t they with a role model like him for a father?
