LenDale's uncle: "Someone's not being honest"

Free agent running back LenDale White has been quiet since the Seahawks cut him last month. But his uncle, Herman White, has become something of a spokesman for LenDale, and he says he thinks the whole truth hasn’t been told about why LenDale is no longer in Seattle.

“All I know is what he’s reported to me, that things were going good, that he was happy,” Herman White said of what LenDale told him. “Either he’s not being honest, or someone’s not being honest.”

Of course, it’s also entirely possible that LenDale is being honest when he says he thought everything was going well in Seattle, but that LenDale just doesn’t realize that in reality, he wasn’t working hard enough.

Herman White also said LenDale missed voluntary activities when he had a death in the family and when he was dealing with damage to his home from flooding in Nashville, but he doesn’t think that should be held against his nephew.

“He missed some, but those were voluntary,” Herman White said. “If those are being held against him, they should have to take that up with the league.”

Herman says LenDale is working out and hoping to catch on with another team. If Herman wants to see a team take a chance on his nephew, it would probably be wise not to make any more public comments.

    You may remember Uncle Herman from old television clips. But that was before the family moved to Colorado and changed the surname from Munster to White. For obvious reasons.

    Then fat boy better run faster if he’s wanting to catch on…

    Is anything ever going to be LenDale’s own fault? I mean, just asking because so far, I haven’t heard him or his retarded uncle ever say anything that has befallen him has been his own fault.
    It’s always the same ol’ story: someone’s out to get him, he didn’t get a fair shake, life isn’t fair, that others may have leapfrogged him because they DID show up to OTAs shouldn’t be held against him, the sun is too bright, the night too dark….. C’mon.
    When you hear that from people, when they never admit anything negative that happens to them is they own doing, you’re dealing with someone who is emotionally immature. Or just a jerk. Or in the case of LenDale, probably both.

    LenDale has learned, T.J. Housh has leared, anyone else care to try?

    Translation:
    Pete Carroll promised my nephew the same money he was making at USC, taking inflation into account, and reneged on the deal….Doesn’t matter that he’s a fat overated player, who will get in shape when money is involved, until then I as the uncle, am the official “excuse” spokesperson…

    Can’t you all just STFU and report on the story… we don’t need to read the opinions of you idiots at PFT… you all have proved time and time again that you don’t know $hit about $hit!

    LenDale needs to learn that he has to earn a roster spot , and one isn’t just given to him based on the fact he used to play for Carroll in college . I was pleasantly surprised when I heard about the weight he’d dropped and how he had gotten himself in shape . After what happened in Tennessee , you’d think he’d relish the opportunity to come in and prove himself again . Instead , there were reports of him arguing with assistant coaches , staring practices late and quitting early and in general just walking around the VMAC with a diva attitude .
    … he’ll catch on with another team this year as soon as injuries start happening in training camps and pre-season games . It’s too bad , because I honestly think he could’ve helped out the Hawks running game this year , but I applaud Carroll for setting an example for the rest of the team of what kind of players he’s looking for and what won’t be tolerated . He didn’t play favorites with one of his own , and that should lend some credence to what he’s been saying about constantly competing to earn/ keep a spot on the roster . There are no free rides ; if you want to be a Seahawk , you better bring your lunch pail everyday .

    why does everyone try to rip on the writers of these articles? There is nothing goin on right now in the NFL. Half the comments posted are by ignorant jerks that can’t spell or find anything else to do but bitch.
    and this is me bitching i guess. . . . . . at least i can spell correctly

    I think bringing too many lunch pails everyday was part of the problem.

    I agree with his uncle. It’s my belief that he got Quincy Cartered and they had to make up something to get rid of him because of the drug suspension that’s coming. I don’t know if the CBA changed since that happened but Dallas had to come up with an excuse BACK THEN to dump QC because of a positive drug test.

    Not being honest = Pete Carroll.

  16. normativity says: Jun 9, 2010 4:54 PM

    LenDale is not being honest here. He should have told his uncle that he closed down several buffets in Seattle and asked for his signing bonus to be paid in cases of Patron. The Seahawks couldn’t handle that so they had to cut him.

    I suppose his drugs were from tainted supplements also…..

  18. enik says: Jun 9, 2010 5:07 PM

    tacious – if you don’t want to read their opinions, why the hell do you read this site? The writers here always give their opinions. Get a life and go shine Lendale’s shoes.

    So what happens when you use one to clean up a crime scene? You get to be less than insignificant?

    Uncle Herman Melville’s tale of the great White, LenWhale.
    Wow. It works on so many levels.

    I demand a PED test immediately.

    You guys keep bashing Lenny and he’s gonna take out a belt & whup some ass…

  24. brasho says: Jun 9, 2010 5:51 PM

    How come there’s no mention here or in the interview of the fact that LenDale is to miss the first 4 weeks of the season for using banned substances. Great journalism at its finest!

  25. SoCal says: Jun 9, 2010 7:02 PM

    Carroll and Co. knew about the possible suspension when the trade went down. So that had nothing to do with his release. It was simply the fact that he felt entiltled and the starting job was going to be handed to him. Carroll has said from day one that he wants to create competition and if you didn’t want to compete you don’t need to be here. Entitlement + Laziness = BYE BYE

    My sources tell me an “informant” at Top Pot Doughnuts snitched him out to Pete.
