In response to MileHighMike's comment:
The New England Patriots have long been "notoriously known" to have been less than truthful in any number of situations regarding their players, "interpretation of rules" and, of course, injury reporting. Here we have Talib and Spikes both making claims about the patsies cheaing ways.
Sure sign of "oxygen deprivation" in the Mile High (Pass the doobee!) city.
1) Spikes, never to be confused at this point in his career, as a sure fire HOF, or even Honorary Mention, missesd a team meeting. That's a big "no no" in Patriot land. In fact, that's a "no no" in the real world in the majority of businesses (I'm sure that when the Pats hold a meeting, it's an "all hands" event). Skip the meeting and it screams "I really don't want to be hre.", as you most assuredly will be terminated. This MEntal Midget never denies missing said team meetring.
2) The Mentally Challenged individual admits he was hurt "needing time to heal". Nuff said on the IR placement, especially when he skipped the team meeting. Too hurt to attend the meeting, then too hurt to play. Only recourse is the IR. Should keep Mr Brain Ddad happy... he got ALL the time he needed to "heal". Can't see the complaint here. Looks like the Patriots honored his request to time to heal. Mr Yahoo wanted it both ways.
3) Until Mr Spikes actually finds himself in a position to be the signer of pay checks, his opinions as to what happens to him is a moot point. As the Rock says: It doesn't matter what you say!" Patriots have rules regarding team meeting, which need to be followed. Decide to take matters into your own hands and you're arunning the risk of being toast. Now, I'm sure there are exceptions to team meeting, but I doubt of Mr Boo Boo was given one.
4) He was let go at the end of the season, so what's his complaint? He didn't like the way he was treated, and signed elsewhere. Looks oike a win/win to me. (Maybe you've got your Scooby Doo's in a knot because the Brokebacks didn't have the chance to sign him, to pick his brain cell, having no real intention in actually keeping him for future roster purposes?) It's obvious that he's much happier in Buffalo where there's no apparent pressure to win and conform with team rules, especially when his self evaluation of an injury varies greatly with what the team medical staff says it is.
5) Now, tell us all that the Brokebacks have NEVER played "roster games" at any time,a nd we'll try hard to keep from splitting our guts in laughter. Go on..... We'll wait.
Have a great (looooonnnnnggg inhaling sound inserted here) day!
