Jeff Faine = Captain NegativeFebruary 17th, 2011
Joe’s had about enough of Jeff Faine spewing a bunch of garbage as the Bucs players union representative.
First he was slobbering a bunch of BS about health insurance (which he keeps doing) and now he’s going all negative on Josh Freeman’s goal of practicing as a team during a lockout. Per his recent interview with Rick Stroud of the St. Pete Times, Faine urinated on Freeman’s plans.
“You’re not going to see Josh Freeman and our receiving corps down at the University of Tampa soccer field,” Faine said. “They might go out there and run some routes and throw. But you’re talking about getting an entire receiving corps together being able to work against an entire defensive backs corps. It’s just not going to happen.”
Nice job, Faine. What the hell kind of captain are you? You think Freeman can’t pull it off?
Why is it so unreasonable to put a quarterback and four receivers and four defensive backs on a practice field?
Answer that, Mr. Notre Dame grad.
For Joe, Faine lost credibility when he rambled the union talking point about the hardship of players expecting babies during a lockout, which Joe has written about before. (Faine did it again with Stroud.) These guys will simply excersize their federal government protected option of paying monthly for their health insurance policies already in place. Surely everyone can afford it, and the union can pay for those few who can’t.
Funny how Faine never mentions how much said players expecting babies will have to pay monthly for insurance.
Joe has no love for the owners in this labor mess, but Joe suspects they wouldn’t be so brazen to say Josh Freeman can’t organize 10 guys on a field.
