LaVar Arrington joins Washington Post

LaVar Arrington is taking his talents to The Washington Post, where he'll write a blog and be my co-worker, I guess.

On Mike Wise's 106.7 The Fan radio show Monday afternoon, Arrington said that he was being courted by both The Post and TBD, and that The Post's efforts included phone calls from both Don Graham and Michael Wilbon. He compared his decision to the moment when he sat in the green room at the NFL draft, waiting to be selected, and said he had been mulling his decision for a couple weeks.

This whole thing was supposed to be a LeBron send-up, especially this part:

"My talents and my ability, I think they would best be served at the Washington Post," Arrington told Wise. "I do think that they do have the dream team with yourself, Steinberg (ha!) and Mike Wilbon, so I kind of feel like LeBron in the sense that I probably couldn't win any type of writing championship by myself. So I figured I'd join a group of guys as distinguished and well-respected as you guys are."

Amazing. Welcome to LaVar's blogs -- which he hopes to call Hard Hits -- and also to Cindy Boren's The Early Lead, for that matter.

From the press release, which somehow landed on Riggo's Rag first:

The Washington Post will add former Washington Redskins All-Pro linebacker LaVar Arrington to the ranks of its sports commentators later this month. Arrington will write a blog on sports topics that will be featured on washingtonpost.com. He also will be a regular contributor to sports video commentary on the site and be a panelist on the Post's weekly Redskins webcast.

"I love the people of Washington, D.C., and now, teaming up with the Washington Post, I will have the largest platform I have ever had in staying connected with the true sports fans in the Washington area," Arrington said. "Being part of the Washington Post is almost as exciting as it was when I joined the Washington Redskins. I'm poised to give new and interesting perspectives on D.C. sports."

And I'm poised to fight him for Web clicks, I suppose.

Dan - it's a big move, but I only smell upside for you (which is technically odorless, but you know what I mean).

LaVar's on your turf now - he's the Dez Bryant to your Roy Williams! Time to insist on the following:

* Series of Web videos where you challenge LaVar in the WaPo shuttle drill: 300 words in 70 seconds or less.

* A Siskel/Ebert-style breakdown of the latest Eastern Motors commercial.

* LaVar has to start reading your copy on his radio show.

LaVar is becoming a one-man media conglomerate... what with ongoing interests in radio and TV and now newspaper columns and webcasts. Should be interesting, but hopefully not too redundant.

Now if we could just get an FM radio station in town to cover the Redskin games... since the current AM band doesn't even reach to the city limits.

The Post must be cutting cost, it is obvious that they do not want to invest in real sports reporters so they have collected (are collecting) people from the streets to act as such. LaVar can barely put a sentence together, though bless his heart he does try. Last year the city had the best hockey team on the nation but the worst and laziest reporter covering them. Wise is reject from other newspapers with a brain as big a flea but not as smart. Wilbon can write but he is a joke and not a serious reporter - the Jesse Jackson of sports. The ladies do try, but can you really taken them seriously? Although there is one (I shall no name) that is very good. LMAO on the joke this paper is playing on its readers.

Until the day LaVar Arrington renounces his paranoid-delusional hallucinating fantasy that Dan Snyder intentionally deceived him out of $6.5 million in a contract bonus, then it will simply be impossible to take anything he has to say about the Redskins whatsoever seriously.

Expect more Redskin bashing from another ex-Redskin. It would be nice if the Post realized people like to read positive stories on their sports team. I loved watching Lavar & Riggins when they played but I can't listen to them because of their constant beat down of the Redskins. They just come across as bitter.

This is laughable. Lavar Arrington has to be one of the biggest gas bags out there. No value added comments on his radio show and just your typical athlete that's trying to come across as intelligent. And when is he ever going to go to diction lessons? Dreadful enunciation...absolutely dreadful.

What a joke. I am surprised that Lavar can even write. The guy was a complete disappointment as an NFL player, but somehow he keeps managing to find a job somewhere despite such a disappointing career as a player.

I would rather see him join the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

I wrote him off ever since he tried to disrespect Joe Gibbs. While he was a very good instict player, this pre-madonna could not be coached. One thing you NEVER do in Washington DC is say something negative about Joe Gibbs. I even have Lavar's jersey but he lost me when he began acting like a panzy. He pointed the finger everywhere else when he got hurt and was unproductive. Giants got a taste of him and it didn't take long for them to get rid of him.

Posted by: brwilson20 | August 2, 2010 3:15 PM | Report abuse

I can't believe anyone expected more, if anyone did. The post used to be the penultimate in reporting whether sports or otherwise. They supported their local teams and personalities and though they have always been up for a bit of controversy, they never just let windbags spout stupidity.

This has changed in the last few years where they seem to just trot one bum after another out there to fail. At least go to the local colleges and have a contest or something to find someone who can write more than drivel. Not all are bad but enough to make you shake your head and then this. Arrington on staff. Well I guess this is what the blogesphere brings out. I for one will never complain about it, because I will never read it. Mike Wise and Wilbon aer also on that list. I like some of the contributing journalists that do not have regular columns, but that is about it. Among the others Steinberg is about the best. I didn't mind El Bashir but I guess he too has moved on. Just about anyone who has covered the skins the last several years has reeked. The Wizards and United not much better. I don't read about the Nats so I can't comment.

Unfortunately now thay are about the only game in town unless you change teams and get the Sun. I would have preferred Brian Mitchell who is also pretty sarcastic and nasty but at least gives credit when it is due and isn't just bitter over being an almost was, or could have been.

First off, Lavar is funny. So even if he barely can speak coherently it will probably be funny stuff to read. Unintentional humor, but humor none the less.

Now more importantly, what the heck is Cindy Boren doing getting a blog? To basically collect the best of Bog posts and then throw together a couple more links? Its a joke. And a terrible read. Blech. Just drivel. Pointless drivel.

Listening to LaVar is like being punished by writing the same sentence over a hundered times for the teacher. Maybe he won't do that on paper. I like listening to Brian Mitchel better. While the both provide gee whiz insights at times, Mitchel doesn't keep repeating himself.

Lavar will offer more of an insiders perspective than the rest of the guys could ever really know. Just cause he uses Stree Lingo on the air doesn't mean he writes the same way. He can be very articulate when he wants it's just very convenient and comfortable to use terms of the street. No big deal, he knows more Sports than Tony K (but who doesn't).

When Lavar Arrington joined the Redskins, he became a player and a Washingtonian. I saw in his face that he absolutely loved being here. Although he briefly played with another team, his heart was still with the Skins. He lived in Virginia and never lost touch. Some athletes do their time, then move on. Not Lavar. He loved this area on sight. I remember one camera shot of him at Fed-Ex field when he smiled and stuck out his tongue and laughed. That told me that Lavar was here for keeps. The Washington Post made an excellent move.

Posted by: skinfreak | August 2, 2010 4:02 PM | Report abuse

Last week, I tuned into LaVar's show just for kicks. He was screaming about "presidents." You know, instead of "precedents." I think that pretty much sums up what his column is going to be like.

LaVar Arrington as a writer/radio guy may do better than Mike Wise. Now I stopped listening to LaVar's show. But that was more because I can't give a cr@p about the skins 365 days a year and a lack of talking on other teams.

What happens when you combine a person with an oversized ego and a communications?

One of the reasons he didn't stay with the Skins is that he didn't want to play within a system. How is he going to relate to players who do? Belittle them for doing so?

Don't be surprised if this thread gets plenty of hits. Love him or hate him, people are going to tune in to LaVar. When he first came on the Fan, LaVar was very open about mistakes he made in how he handled his contract with the Skins. How many people in their 20's have made decisions they later regretted? That LaVar blew in by not reading the contract because he trusted Snyder implicitly says a great deal about the character and world views of both LaVar and Snyder. What I've learned about him from listening to LaVar during his year at the Fan is that he is a down to earth guy from a small town who made the big time. His ability to draw huge guests from his Rolodex makes LaVar a valuable commodity to a News-Entertainment company like the Post. Anybody who calls LaVar an idiot has no idea what they're talking about. He hatched this plan of joining the media during his playing days. Plus, there's a reason why LaVar's Rolodex is so full of big names and he has the ear of a Ted Leonsis. He obviously understands how to build and maintain long-term relationships, and he understand the importance of surrounding himself with the most talented people. That's what smart people do. If he receives help in editing his stories, so do a lot of other people. And by the way, he's not a Skins basher. His critiques of the Skins have generally been dead on, and judging from the changes in how the organization has been run, Snyder has been listening to him.

The last couple of times I listened to Lavar on his radio show I was struck by just how inarticulate he is and how he lacks the ability to form cogent discussion points/arguments 95% of the time. His basic grammar/sentence structure is awful; he contradicts himself, and usually the longer he talks, the more nonsensical he becomes.

To top it off, today, I caught the part where he was talking about how "CONTRARY to a FEW people, athletes are really smart" (yeah, great example you just made).

Journalism continues to decline, even at one of the most respected news brands in the country. Nothing against LaVar or any other ex-jock, but let's face it, most aren't journalists, let alone articulate writers/speakers. The public might be entertained by their celebrity but that should not be a replacement for being a well informed, skillful communicator. Just listen to the radio show and one will realize we're not going to be reading many journalistic gems. And news organizations wonder why they are losing more and more credibility with the public? Their quick-fix solutions to declining circulation, poor ratings or a lack of online hits are short-sighted.

At the end of the day, I will always take substance over style, but I also know that the era of great writers like your own Thomas Boswell is ending.

As I said, nothing against LaVar. If someone is willing to pay him for his literary talents, so be it. I am far more disappointed in the Post for overlooking better writers and journalists, many whom need jobs in this bad economy, in favor of a local celebrity.

LaVar a writer? I dunno...as has been pointed out, he's certainly not great as a broadcaster. (As many ex-jocks tend not to be -- and I can't recall any of the breed getting a regular WAPO gig before either.) But as Mike Wise proves most days, being a good radio host and being a good sportswriter aren't necessarily the same skill, T.K. and a very few others notwithstanding, so maybe L.A. will surprise.

On the other hand, reaction to this Arrington news is entertaining enough in itself, for the number of posts above calling him out for his supposedly deficient language skills while being themselves riddled with unintentional misspellings and incorrect punctuation. You go guys!

BHOANG888, you're stuck on stupid.

Funny how that's the only way LA can get into a sentence with Troy Aikman.

Secondly, you blame Gibby for hurting LA's career? Are you on crack? Here this:

Marvin Lewis - commonly regarded as THE BEST D COORDINATOR ON EARTH the year the 'Skins hired him.

Then.....

Gregg Williams - commonly placed his defenses IN THE TOP 5 EVERY YEAR.

If Arrington is as inarticulate in print as he is on radio, the Post has to hire a top-notch editor to review his blog. My friends and I are thinking about creating a drinking game based on each nonsensical phrase he utters. We love "I am in agreeance with you" and "He set a dangerous precidence." Classic!
