NFL will not fine LaRon Landry for alleged spitting incident vs. Eagles

By Rick Maese

The NFL Friday decided not to fine or punish Redskins safety LaRon Landry for allegedly spitting at Philadelphia center Mike McGlynn in Monday night's loss to the Eagles.

Landry denied the charge and the NFL, after investigating the allegation, said "there was no conclusive evidence to support discipline." Other Redskins players said they did not see Landry spit.

Emotions ran high before and during Monday's game. Players from both teams also traded barbs during pregame warmups.

Our boys are 7 point dogs this week. Considering our injuries, the fact that we're really just not very good, and playing on the road following a MNF game that gives us a very short week, I'd say we would be very lucky to cover 7 points. I'm thinking a double digit loss on Sunday.

Gawd this team is a mess.

First, we allowed a Dog Killer Convicted Felon to come into OUR HOUSE and to EMBARRASS us.

Second, not only did we lose to the Dog Killer Convicted Felon, but we showed no pride or effort in limiting the damage.

Third, our highest paid players produced so little that we now know that we can play without them. We are going to lose with them, so what is the point of retaining their services another year?

Fourth, these coaches are not adapting their schemes to the players they have. It is obvious that the offense isn't keyed to the players on the field, we have talent on the practice squad that is being squandered while we maintain roster slots for players WE KNOW ARE NOT THE ANSWER, and our defense is an utter disaster - hellbent on its application because it is HASLET's WAY.

Fifth, precious roster spots are being consumed by Albert Haynesworth, Joey Galloway, Roydell Williams, and Clinton Portis that could be used to bring in young talent that we can mold. Haynesworth is worthless - he is an arrogant, spoiled, egotistical, lazy jerk. Even after we've accommodated his lack of talent as a nose tackle, he showed us with his belly flop and three excuses for staying down that he is unwilling to be more than an anus. Clinton Portis is now an injury liability and cannot be counted on for another season.

I thought this team had heart. We found out Monday nite this team is a fraud - the coaches are a fraud - and Redskin fans have been deceived. This loss on Monday hurts more than last year because last year we at least knew our head coach was over his head and we had management who selected awful players. This year we believed we had better. We find out now that our head coach is a lying, manipulating jerk and our defensive coordinator is a brash arrogant fool.

HTTR. On the weekend that even the Cowboys pulled their heads out of their collective backsides and showed some pride, our Redskins showed that they are only two wins better than those jerks. That hurts. Every Redskin player, coach, manager, and owner should accept that they are complicit in this fraud and should honestly look at what they are doing and look around the league and see how modern football teams are built, coached, and managed. And when they see the light, I hope their embarrassment feels as bad as mine does admitting I'm a fan of this horrid team.

What really hurts is that the cowpies will probably win more games than we will this year. What a slap in our face...
Looking at the schedule and the way we're playing, we very possibly could not win another game. 4 - 12 is real probable. Man, Snyder should just clean house again. I think Shanny's not what everyone thought. His ego is too big, and he really only won with Elway. Hell, I could coach Elway. Snyder should throw a blank checkbook at Cowher, and walk away. Let him do whatever he wants. At least we know he's a tough, smart, football guy. Start over.....again. And DRAFT like the Patriots do......that's how you build dynasty's.

Tough week for the NFL.

First they can't find any evidence of LL's alleged spitting.

And then when they went to the tape to find any evidence of hard hitting or aggressive tackling, they came up empty there too.

At least we now understand why Billy Ray Cyrus was in town for Monday's game -- to personally sing a few verses of "Achy, Breaky Heart..." to poor Laron.

Trouble was, Laron was actually hoping to get some quality time with Billy’s little girl, Hanna Montana.

So who could blame poor Laronfor losing the plot when DeSean Jackson told him that Hanna had already given the Iggles wide receiver a "very personalized" autograph -- while also admitting to being Jackson’s biggest fan.

Not to be outdone, Laron started trash talking about his own close and personal relationship with Justin Bieber.

Which left Jackson feeling incandescent, because he knew for a fact that Bieber is down as one of Michael Vick’s big dawgz.

So following a few more pre-game pushes and shoves, and a little alledged spittle, both teams retired to the locker rooms.

On the first offensive play of the game, Vick just laughed at Landry while he threw Jackson an 85 yard touchdown -- and the rest, as they say, is history.

That clown wasn't close enough to spit on anyone.He should be fined for giving up an 88 yard touchdown on the first play.How often do you see that?
