    Hindsight is 20 - 20, but to answer your question = Burfict... Bc

    I'd rather not have shitheels on the team.

    I'd like to think the FO feels that way, too, and I think the results speak for themselves. Feel free to carry on as if character doesn't matter; thankfully we're here in the cheap seats and you're not hurting anything.

    Pollard was likely released due to the 'mutiny', not his toeing-the-line play.

    They are going to go over to Houston in the Wildcard round and he's going to pull some stuff like this, and get caught, and it's going to crush any momentum they have up to that point. Book it. In the playoffs, this type of stuff gets exposed.
    Stone wasn't a good player, and Brown's incident didn't happen in a playoff game.

    No, I don't want bad players with a propensity to take penalties after the play. But that's not relevant to the discussion about Burflict.

    Remembering the wrong Zeus incident I think. 2 unnecessary roughness penalties late in the 4th quarter of this game: http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs03/series?series=tenbal

    Yes, Brown's incident did happen in a playoff game. The year that Jamal ran for 2000 yards, Tennessee came to town for the Wild Card playoff round.

    EDIT: Okay, I see now, that we are talking about two different incidents. You are probably talking about when the ref hit him in the eye with the flag. I am talking about the two personal foul penalties against Tennessee.

    Sorry about that, I thought I put it in the right one. How do I move a post?

    I think both played a part in his departure.

    Pollard is a 15-yard penalty machine. If he keeps trying to demolish receivers, he's going to be suspended.

    He's not Aaron Hernandez or Suh. Still a great player I'm sure the coaches wish they got.

    Maybe Burfict just wanted to see what the dude was packin' ?

    For all we know the GB player did something earlier that made the cup check necessary. The fact Burfict had the nads to do it right in front of the ref without getting caught is high school prank funny.
