Britt’s dad wants Kenny out of New Jersey

9494328-large

We’ve mentioned once or twice the connection between the lockout and players being locked up.  Though we’re not excusing bad behavior, the fact remains that the arrest rate for NFL players tends to go down when they have the structure that comes from being with their teams.

Sure, arrests still happen during OTAs and training camp and the preseason and the regular season and even the postseason (including the night before the Super Bowl), but they are fewer and farther between than when the players are left to their own devices.

In the lockout, the players indefinitely have been left to their own devices.  And the father of the NFL player most recently arrested wishes that wasn’t the case.

Jack Britt believes that his son, Titans receiver Kenny Britt, needs to be out of his hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey and back in Nashville.

“I’m worried about him all the time,” Jack Britt told Conor Orr and Matthew Stanmyre of the Newark Star-Ledger in an article that takes a thorough look at Britt’s history of off-field issues.  “But my concern is not with Kenny, per se, it’s more with Kenny’s friends, and he knows that.  He has too many friends with too much free time.

“He needs to be around more positive people.”

One of those friends is Albert Robinson of Jersey City.  Britt posted bond earlier this year for Robinson after he was accused of shooting a teenager and throwing him into the Hudson River.  The teenager drowned.

Ideally, Britt wouldn’t be hanging out in Bayonne right now but training at the Titans’ facility and thereafter hanging out with teammates who have a vested interest in keeping him out of trouble.  That won’t happen until the lockout ends.

Lockout or not, Kenny Britt soon will be returning to Nashville, with one of his brothers.  Still, even if Kenny Britt is out of Bayonne, he’ll still have too much free time of his own.  And he has shown that he’s capable of finding trouble in Nashville, as evidenced by his involvement last season in a nightclub brawl.

Meanwhile, the Titans can do nothing for Britt, thanks to the lockout.  They can’t check on him, and they can’t help him in any way.

It’s not a reason for either side to cave at the bargaining table, but it’s another reason for both sides to quit treating August as the 11th hour and start realizing that the 11th hour has already come and gone.

    Yes. It’s not little Kennys fault. He is not an adult with free will. He has to do what his friends say. Let’s blame everybody we can except the one who is actually at fault.If he’s a pos in “Joysie,” he’s gonna be one in Tennessee too. Maybe it’s Dads fault. Maybe he should have done a better job of raising him and instilling good values and morals in him.

    Yes it’s all his friends fault, he can’t rid himself of being stupid…..When i have free time i usually try and cap someone and throw them in a river……When boredom sets in….

    Who wouldn’t want to be friends with someone who shot a teenager and threw him into the river to drown?

    I mean, really.

    children are dependent on their surroundings and others…these idiots are adults (at least by age) and need to know a thing called “responsibility” lockout or no lockout…absolutely zero sympathy from me and im sure most others

    Maybe Mr. Britt should be talking to Kenny and not gibberish to the press.

    Can i use PFT the next time my son needs some growing up to do?

    Mr. Britt,

    Kenny’s ultimate goal is to end up in the can ala Rae Carruth. Please don’t interfere with him achieving this goal. He’s almost there.

    This guy would find trouble living in the mountains of China with Buddish monks. Its not the arrow, it the Indian.

    It isn’t the NFL’s fault that the morals of a good many of the players are corrupt. It is the undisciplined youth of this country to blame as they are raised with little or no guidance. Everyone is so eager to push the blame on racial issues instead of the home. You become who you associate with and if your friends are criminally inclined you will be also regardless of your income. Look in the mirror thats who is to blame.

    “Britt posted bond earlier this year for Robinson after he was accused of shooting a teenager and throwing him into the Hudson River. The teenager drowned.”

    Kenny, what were you thinking?

    “My lil Kenny would never do such bad things. He is a nice, polite lil boy with good manners. All his friends are no good though. they are bad influences on my lil Kenny.”

    How many times has a parent uttered those words about their own spoiled, conniving kids?

    Lil Kenny was never held accountable his whole life by his daddy, and is still not being held accountable by his daddy. I have been saying for so long that this is the exact reason these jacka$$es act the way they do.

    Too many of these players are just overgrown children. Most of them come from poor socioeconomic backgrounds in which they were falsely taught that becoming a professional athlete was the penultimate accomplishment in their lives. When they achieve it, they figure they’ve self-actualized, and don’t have to do anything else to earn and keep respect and maximize their potential.

    Stop idolizing athletes, people. Some are good people, and some are terrible people. But they’re just people either way.

    The underlying message here is that we don’t need to feel bad when he gets himself killed spending the offseason .
    I think Pops should send Ray Ray up north to have a “conversation” with little Kenny.

    Not as badly as New Jersey wants Kenny Britt to leave.

    What’s with these guys and their “possies”? These hanger ons always seem to get these guys in trouble. They need to tell their “friends” to take a hike. Are these guys really that stupid? Take you medicine an own up to your responsibilities.

    Deb, are you reading this?

    As much as you can try and blame Britt’s dad for not instilling good values, you have to appreciate the fact that hes not joining in on family shooting sessions. Hes top 5 for NFL parents listed on PFT so far.

    Another proud member of the NFLPA* Open the books!

    Way to go dad..blame his friends. He already proved he can get in trouble OUTSIDE of Jersey.

  20. scott8nj says: Apr 17, 2011 12:36 PM

    Great comments. To bad the after school program for adults is not available to save these idiots from themselves. Another sad story of a kid that has the world at his feet but will throw it all away because he never learned right from wrong.

    Way to raise a son there, “Dad”

    Take Snooki with you.

    you got it Mike; the lockout is entirely the owners fault, and now all the actions of the players is the owners fault.
