    Remember when a visit by Redskins Nation inspired interest because playoff seeding depended on outcomes, or because NFC East bragging rights were riding on this, or at bare minimum saving face in this fierce rivalry mattered.
    Tashard Choice disabused everybody of that last point of interest, when he pulled back the curtain on the ugly truth of pro sports. Fans carry games with them way longer than athletes. While Tashard was giddily asking for Michael Vick's autograph like a tween at a Justin Bieber concert, fans were upset.
    He says y'all just do not understand. He plays, he does.

    What I want to tell Tashard is fans pay for him to play the game, so he might want to listen when a lot of them get riled. Because while his genius friends might believe autograph anger is a manufactured media story for personal gain, my column does not need him. Nor likely do talk radio or TV news.
    Third-string running back minor controversies do not induce traffic.

    one thing they have in common with Dallas is an egomaniac as an owner.

    Five years from now she'll still be referencing Wade in nearly everything she writes.
