LaVar Arrington appears to be tired of feuding with Clinton Portis publicly.
We expected a fire and brimstone response from Arrington after Portis’ recent comments about Arrington embellishing his relationship with Sean Taylor.
Instead, Arrington tried to end the feud, take the high road, and move on. Arrington calmly addressed the Taylor topic, and said seemed disappointed by the whole ordeal.
“People are trying to paint this picture that you need to take Clinton’s
side or take my side. It’s not about no taking no sides. It’s not even
about that. It’s very petty, if you ask me. Very petty, and
unfulfilling,” Arrington said on his radio show, via Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog.
Arrington seemed to realize as he spoke that continuing to talk about the squabble wouldn’t do anyone any good.
“I mean, it’s strange to me. Whatever it is that may have turned you
this way towards me, to me it’s very sad. It’s very sad,” Arrington said. “And I just hope
that at some point, you’ll find clarity in whatever it is that you’re
feeling and whatever it is that you’re thinking, and possibly we can sit
down as men without this playing out over the airwaves and on the
internet and over ESPN or ProFootballTalk or anywhere else.”
(Whoops. But hey, thanks for reading.)
Arrington didn’t take any calls on the subject, and finished his segment with this message to Portis:
“I just hope and I pray that whatever clarity that it is that you’re
searching for or that you need in your life, I hope you find it, man. I
hope you find it. I hope you find it.”
