NFLPA president tees off on Albert Haynesworth

To the extent that the NFLPA eventually may have to defend the ability of Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to keep all of the $21 million he received in April after skipping a mandatory minicamp this week, the president of the NFLPA has done nothing to assist Haynesworth’s position.

“I mean, if you don’t want to be there don’t take the $21 million contract,” Kevin Mawae told Bryan McGovern and Gil Brandt of Sirius NFL Radio.  “How things turned out it’s no surprise to guys that have played with him in Tennessee.”

(Translation?  “Turd.”)

“You know, what do you say?” Mawae said, right after saying all that he needed to say.  “I mean, you’re getting paid a ton of money to play less and you’re complaining about it.   At the end of the day it’s one thing to be a football player and get paid lots of money but there’s a whole lot more to be said about being a man. . . .  [H]e can be one of the best in the league and I’ve said that to him in his face before.  But to this point he doesn’t want to do it on a consistent basis.”

Dear Redskins, sign Kevin Mawae right now.  And put his locker right next to Haynesworth’s.

    I thought that all of this was the reason that the NFL does not Guarantee contracts. These Signing bonus’ and Guarantees are going to bit some owners in the Butt. Albert Haynesworth is a turd.

    (Translation? “Turd.”) – PRICELESS!!!!
    Thanks Flo!

    Just curious from fans of other teams out there, is there any interest for this guy right now? Not because I’m grasping that the skins will get some sort of compensation, but I’ve never seen anything like this in sports, and I can’t imagine this guy playing football for anyone at this point. He doesn’t strike me as the type of guy to take an incentivized contract either, so what’s the end game for Fat Al?

    “if you don’t want to be there don’t take the $21 million contract”
    Is there anything else to say?

  7. Blackbeard says: Jun 18, 2010 2:02 PM

    Isn’t Mawae unemployed and jealous? Haynesworth has a job that he hates, and he is doing it half-asses and being paid well for it…

    Albert Haynesworth AKA “Alice Haynesworth is a piece of ______! I hope the Redskins play him into the ground. Trade him, Hell No. I’d make him run windsprints until he was 195lbs. But that’s the weight of that sucker’s head.
    He’a a swolled up, 12 pork chop sandwich eating, bloated, whining, disgusting, no-heart, SOB! I don’t wanna play nose tackle, Alice whined through his agent after he took the money and run. He faked injury last season only played in 12 games. Half of which he was laying on the sidelines sucking for air. Alice Haynesworth can go catch up the hershey highway for I care. Hey Alice give the Redskins their $21 million back and go play in Canada where you can gain fame as “Alice BIGFOOT Haynesworth”.

  9. Cut Da Jokes says: Jun 18, 2010 2:03 PM

    The end game is….he becomes best friends w/ Antoine Walker….

    I hate lazy mondays

  11. rpiotr01 says: Jun 18, 2010 2:07 PM

    The Vikings would love to have him – they’d need to deny it for a few months before hand, of course, ya know… just to keep with recent protocol… but I’m sure they’d love him.
    The Lions are desperate and would take him in a heart beat as well.

  12. wxwax says: Jun 18, 2010 2:07 PM

    Wow.
    Getting called out by his own union. That’s about as low as it gets.
    Except that if you’re Albert Haynesworth, no-one can take away your dignity because you have none left.
    I remain curious as to whether this very public shunning will have any impact on him. It would most people. But he’s already proven he’s a different sort of animal.

  13. TampaBayBucs6and10 says: Jun 18, 2010 2:07 PM

    Orakpwnd – The Bucs had him listed as the crown jewel of the Free Agent Market a few years ago but NOW around here he is used a punch line to show what kind of players the bucs target in free agency. I think he is going to be used durring the contract talks as an example of why players should not be given any money up front. Sorry Dude

  14. NashvilleSeahawk says: Jun 18, 2010 2:08 PM

    Even more reason to love Kevin Mawae. He is completely a class act and should be signed by any team for his leadership alone. Not to mention he’s a pretty damn good football player.

  15. Sportnman says: Jun 18, 2010 2:10 PM

    As I mentioned in a previous post: ‘Well played Mr. Turd, Well Played!”

  16. brownsfn says: Jun 18, 2010 2:10 PM

    Ya why the hell did he take the 21 million dollars a couple of months ago if he wanted to get traded or released…what s SCUMBAG this guy is…

  17. Jeff says: Jun 18, 2010 2:11 PM

    Orakpwnd, I am a titans fan and I most certaintly would love to have this guy back. If he gets released he will have gotten the money he wants and he can come back and play for coaches who know how to motivate him and light a fire under his @ss. Plus I think so many people have trashed him for works now he will play more motivated than ever. When Haynesworth plays motivated there is no better DT in the league (i.e. his 2 contract years in tennessee).

    “Dear Redskins, sign Kevin Mawae right now. And put his locker right next to Haynesworth’s.”
    That would be a good plan, if Haynes-worthless ever decided to actually show up

  19. Eduardo Andrade says: Jun 18, 2010 2:26 PM

    NFLPA: strike and I’m off of Pro football for good. NCAA football on Sunday will gladly do it for me. There’s plenty of passion and good games at the college level.
    People like Jamarcus and Albert are reason for which CBA has to be watered down

  20. Dapollock says: Jun 18, 2010 2:27 PM

    Actually, the Skins should hire “Duece” Davenport for a day and assign him a locker next to Al’s. Hopefully, it’ll be burrito day at camp that particular day, so Najeh will only need to be employed for an hour or two.

  21. NashvilleSeahawk says: Jun 18, 2010 2:32 PM

    Jeff, it wasn’t the Titans coaches that motivated him. Do you not remember the previous 2 years before he left how Fisher would comment about Albert not having any work ethic? Remember Albert stepping on Gurude’s (sp) head? Remember Albert attacking another player at UT with a fence post? Remember Albert causing wrecking a guy into the concrete median on I-65 when he was driving over 100 mph and leaving the scene? Those are the incidents that define Haynesworth.
    You are correct about him being the best DT in the league IN HIS FINAL CONTRACT YEAR with the Titans. That was his motivation. He was in the final year and wanted to get paid and he played all out. He got paid and now he’s done giving it his all.
    Final year of contract = motivation. Not coaches.

  22. v6volume says: Jun 18, 2010 2:34 PM

    After a 45-12 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night in 2009, Haynesworth questioned the scheme of defensive coordinator Greg Blache, and stated that he could not “survive another season in this system if it stays the way it is.”
    And then it changes and he’s unhappy. What a POS

    LMAO!!!

  26. chhutson27 says: Jun 18, 2010 2:50 PM

    I’d run him into the ground until he won’t take anymore, then trade him to Oakland or Detriot so he can play for a contender.

  27. snnyjcbs says: Jun 18, 2010 3:27 PM

    That is why Unions are such garbage organizations. They elect all these people that cannot count to 10 to represent the Union and deal with educated people from the other side.
    Nothing worse then a washed up player that cannot find a job so pissed off at the HUGE MONEY that another player was given that they let the hatred come out and tarnish the Union they claim to Represent.
    Get over it bum, you are washed up and no team wants you. And here is a little wake up call for you, it has nothing to do with you working for the Union, it has everything to do with you are over the hill and washed up.
    Your contracts even when you played did not total the interest that Big Albert collects on his money.

  28. PackAttackBackMan says: Jun 18, 2010 3:31 PM

    Why don’t the Redskins just call his bluff and let him sit out?….. Then fine his ass and try to get some money back…..Then if he chooses to retire, get all of that bonus money…..
    Either way….seems win win if he sits out…..

  29. kingmj4891 says: Jun 18, 2010 3:31 PM

    We don’t want this turd in Detroit. We got Suh and Williams in the middle so Hanyesworth can go jump off a bridge for all I care except that might cause a devastating tidal wave.

  30. 1nationraidernation says: Jun 18, 2010 4:48 PM

    you’ve got it wrong florio….dear raiders sign Kevin mawae right now, and put his locker next to haynesworth

  31. gurnblanston says: Jun 18, 2010 5:31 PM

    Gotta love the union stomping on this piece of crap. Every player should be out there saying the same thing, because you know Goodell and the owners can’t wait to talk about this during the CBA talks. He will cost all players money – not job Fat Albert!
    As for the Redskins – It’s the Curse of Vinny Cerrato! Little Danny has one last pile of crap to roll in from his racquetball partner.
    Let Fletcher and his teammates handle him. Run his ass off in camp. Nose tackle reps all day, every day. Punt coverage teams. Kick coverage teams.
    Maybe the crybaby, who has already sacrificed the last two years of guaranteed money, will break and not show one day. Then, maybe he’ll break again. Get the money if you can.
    But, what I really want to see is the Redskins hold firm and not give him what he wants. He either plays for the Redskins (the term playing being used loosely), or he retires. Do NOT accomodate him via trade or release. If he is the biggest crybaby ever – let that 4 sack season in 2009 be his last!!! Hail!

    I hope that whatever it is you do for a living brings in more money than Mawae’s made over his career…otherwise you just came across like a real big dipshit.
