‘Q Parker’ of 112 Has Not Lost His Touch of Vocally

Posted December 7, 2010 6:04 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Ummmm,.............. nothinUmmmmm……………….nothin.

I remember getting into an argument about who was better vocally; 112 vs Boys II Men.  My vote was always and always will be 112.  Those boys will kill a song live at the drop of a dime and they wont break a blood vessel to do so.  With that being said,  B2M has to try too hard and 112 doesn’t.    Those brothas can actually sing.  Look in my “Flashback Friday” archives……………  Q and Slim……………..who can touch these guys vocally?

In Dayum News: Albert Haynesworth Supended for the Remainder of the Season

Posted December 7, 2010 3:48 PM By Deirdre B Pride

The highest-paid defensive player in NFL history is now the highest-paid player to ever be kicked off his team in the middle of the season.

After months of ongoing drama, the Washington Redskins suspended former All-Pro Albert Haynesworth(notes) for the team’s final four games of the season. The official reason was the mercurial star’s “conduct detrimental to the team.”

Haynesworth, who signed a massive deal with  Redskins in the opening minutes of the 2009 free-agency season, will not be paid for those games. That will cost Haynesworth more than $3.5 million over the next month.  Please remind yourselves  that he played  20 games for the Redskins for a total of $34 million before we go on.

……………..and people are not sad about it.  The big homie has not performed in a team like fashion.  This is just what I heard okay?  Let me fill you in on the details that were presented to me.

He was benched for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, where his teammates anonymously slayed his a** to local D.C. news.

Haynesworth refused to attend offseason minicamps despite accepting a $20 million roster bonus in March, and then continued during training camp when Shanahan put Haynesworth through a series of public conditioning tests that he did not pass.   He missed games for various reasons this season, including this past one, in which he was benched on gameday without any advance notice.

These are things that you just don’t do.  He needs to remove his arse off his shoulders and respect the game.  Respect and appreciate the opportunity.  There are guys crying begging to play for the NFL and he rolls around like this???????  These guys need to quit taking their God giving skills for granted. The crap displayed is not conducive to what I would want my future baller to display.  I’m just saying.

In a statement he said:

“Despite the club’s numerous attempts to persuade Albert Haynesworth to abide by the terms of his contract, he has repeatedly refused to cooperate with our coaching staff in a variety of ways over an extended period of time. Among other things, he has consistently indicated to our defensive coaches that he refuses to play in our base defense or on first-down or second-down nickel situations. He has also refused to follow the instructions of our coaches both during weekly practices and during actual games as well.

“[Monday], when Albert was at Redskin Park, he told our General Manager Bruce Allen that he [Haynesworth] would no longer speak with me. Although suspending any player is not a decision that a head coach enters into lightly, I believe the situation has reached the point where the club clearly has no alternative.”

*shakes my head vigorously; then wakes away*

My cousin is trying to play in the league and this mess just makes me mad because my baby does not roll this way.
