Albert Haynesworth on E:60


Quite a couple weeks for the Redskins and E:60. Last week, there was the very nice Chris Cooley feature with Rachel Alexander; watch it here. And Tuesday at 7, the program will have a segment on Albert Haynesworth, with Jeff Chadiha reporting. The promo is above, and the ESPN description is below.

With questions looming over him due to his past, Albert Haynesworth became the highest paid defensive player in the NFL when he signed with the Washington Redskins. The $100 million man can indulge even more in his high priced hobbies, including a super-sized jeep with 50 inch tires, a new yacht and 44-foot, fast-flying catamaran. Haynesworth invites E:60 on board of one of the flashiest speed boats in the country, with speeds up to 170 miles per hour and an $80,000 paint job.

As E:60's Jeff Chadiha reports, Haynesworth is trying to prove he is worth every penny the Redskins have gambled on him. His most notorious moment came almost three years ago as a Tennessee Titan when, while in a rage, he stomped on the bare head of a Dallas Cowboy, earning the longest suspension in the NFL for an on-field violation. E:60 explores what drove Haynesworth before and after that defining moment, what propelled him to the ranks of nine-figure players, and why his critics still believe he could be an expensive risk.

Haynesworth will the the FIRST defensive player to need a rest.

Has he really been faking injuries to catch his breath?

As long as he doesn't have an injury that makes him sit out of games completely, this guy is worth the money. He has played up to expectations so far.

If you were 6'6" and 350 you'd need to catch a breather too. I hope '92 doesn't refer to the fact that you're 17 years old and trying to talk trash to an All-Pro.

Fat ALbert is a punk and a waste of money. Jsut think what he could do if he was in playing shape. Fat Albert an all pro what a fing joke.

I bet his boat would do 200mph if his fat a*rse wasn't in it.

Someone needs to compare how many plays Fat Albert is on the sidelines to the average and then to average of All Pro's at his position.

I would put Fat Albert on a conditioning program in the off season. have him play rubgy as a forward once a week during the off season and run 3 miles in 18 minutes the standard for most rugby players.

Hey, hey, hey its Fat Albert trying to get off the field of play. her comes Fat Albert to the sidelines again!

Hey hey hey, I wonder how many sideline breaks Fat ALbert had to take while filming that

Steinz, your last ten posts have been about the Redskins. Is this still a general DC-area Sports Bog or have the Post's IT folks just been dilatory about renaming it "Redskins Insider II"?

HAYNESWORTH FACING LAWSUIT OVER PURPORTED CHARACTER ASSASSINATION

A memo sent last week from Bill Cosby Enterprises to the Washington Redskins Front Office puts the so-called football team on notice that the famed comedian intends to sue the team for defamation of character, as well as libel, slander and infringement on his trademarked properties.

Cosby is reportedly seeking more than $100 in compensation for specified damages, plus another $100 million for the compromise and loss of his protected intellectual property rights.

The lawsuit alleges that while Mr. Cosby has invested a significant amount of time and intellectual capital into establishing Fat Albert as a somewhat portly but loveable, helpful, kindly and conscientious soul, the Redskins have presented him as an fat, lazy, overpaid and out of shape parody of a pro football player who remains just one bad moment away from another lengthy league suspension.

The so-called football player is also cited for continuing to fake a series of non-existent injuries as a smokescreen to cover his lack of participation in team practice, as well as his continuing disregard for his personal fitness and conditioning, and a lack of preparation and readiness for most game situations.

The plaintiffs note that NFL game officials have been instructed to flag this blatant malingerer for repeatedly delaying the game, misuse of certain medical resources that might actually be needed by other players who suffer from real injuries, and extraordinarily bad acting and other melodramatics.

Thus far, Redskin team lawyers have declined to comment on the pending lawsuit, explaining they are currently engaged in several higher priority cases, such as suing penniless little old widows for failure to renew the season ticket plans of their deceased husbands.

I agree with that completely. When he's in the game, he's been a monster, but he takes a lot of plays off.

What I don't get is why anyone is surprised by this. That's EXACTLY the player that he was in Tennessee. There's a reason the Titans didn't sign him to a massive long-term deal.

I don't see how it's Big Al's fault if the Redskins decided to pay AH like the player they wished he were rather than the player that he actually is.

Um, "wished we was."

Should have quit while I was behind.

Gonna go out on a limb and say the segment was shot in a Golden Corrall and Fat Albert was on a gurney that was slid up to the buffet table?

Am I right?

I bet Big Al will get tired just from watching his E:60 piece and have to take a timeout before resuming watching said piece.
