    I had not seen any other posts about Haynesworth's interview on ESPN. I was flipping channels and just came across it on the pre-game show yesterday. He used the worst excuse possible in saying that he did not even realize he did anything. It was not until he watched the game film that he knew what he did. That is a bunch of bull and an excuse I have heard often when guys lose it. I thought up until that point that Albert actually made an attempt to seek forgiveness and accept what he did, but that just went out the window. He would have been better off not saying anything more.

    Actually, what he says would be pretty consistent with someone who has an anger management problem. Folks with anger management issues regularly report blacking out or not knowing what they did. It doesn't excuse the act at all -- it does indicate that he needs help.

    sounds a little like a case of roid rage too. not accusing him of anything but something had to be wrong with him to do something like that, seriously.

    Did anyone see the cheapshot by the Denver Center last night. He went after Castillos knees on a QB spike to stop the clock.

    Castillo forearmed him to the back of the helmet a couple of times and got ejected, but it was the Center who should have been ejected if you ask me.

    Bingo.

    I've been in fights where I just started swinging and didn't know if I got hit or not.

    It's easy to blank out in anger.

    agreed.... that's typical of bronco players....

    Wonder if Schottenheimerdinger apologized for getting in his face after watching the tape?

    doubt it.... Just because somebody attempts something on you doesn't mean it's right to retaliate. It takes a bigger man to not throw a punch, right in front of the ref and get ejected.

    I guess that just depends on how many times the Broncos lineman went after that players knees throughout the game. A forearm to the back of the head is light retaliation for someone trying to threaten your career!!!

    what about when a linebacker is coming on a blitz and a RB dives for his knees and takes him out?!?! Or when a RB is running the ball and instead of wrapping up a, tackler simply dives and nails them in the side of the knee?!?!? Or how about when it's goalline and the linemen dive at the Dlines knees to knock them down so the RB can jump over the pile!?!?!! It happens all the time in football {diving at somebody's knees} it's different when it's done for malice but it's still not a huge deal unless the player is tangled up with another player and is unable to get his leg off the ground and it snaps from the force.

    That was totally ridicilous, Nalen knew they were spiking the ball but went for the guys knees anyway. Completely uncalled for they both should of been ejected.

    So you don't think that the center went after his knees for malice - after all it was a spike to stop the clock - the center did know that!!

    All the center did was dive to hit him {poorly I might add} I haven't seen a replay of it since last night yet but from memory it wasn't like he was diving at the side of his knee and then driving it into the ground, that would be an attempt to end somebody's season/career. Lineman are getting hit on their thighs, knees, and shins all the time, that's my point. It was an attempt at a cheap shot to knock a guy down not an attempt to break somebody's leg. Find me a video of the dive and if it looks like he's trying to end the guys career I'll agree with you and say that he deserved to get clubbed in the back of the head.

    Bullpoopie, he knew what he was doing. He lifted his foot up and stepped on his face. He had the presence of mind to argue with the refs. You don't conveniently drift in and out of amnesia.

    The play was already over and he went for his knees - what else do you need to see? If he just hits him straight up - no problem, but why go low when he knew the play was over?

    because it was a cheap shot, I'm not denying that. I'm trying to say it was dumb to get ejected for throwing a punch when he could have simply got his revenge on the next play. Stick a forearm in the guys chin, drive his arse into the ground. But clubbing the guy in front of the ref and getting ejected is dumb.

    I saw the replay. Seemed like a cheap play by the center. The ball was already spiked from what I saw, with the linemen on both team not even really trying to make a play, then all of the sudden he dives at his knees.
