Bout time! He was more trouble than worth. Had a few good years but I am glad he didn't beat out Holmes for the record.

Only thing bad about it is the salary cap hit next year, that is, as long as we get the CBA done.

Best move of the decade.

We can win or lose with out LJ. Jamal Charles 6 carries for 36 yards, avg 6 yards a run. Way better than than LJ.

Actually, I do not think it will have any effect on our cap number for next year. I believe we are off the hook and could have cut him at anytime without consequence, due breach of contract/legal issues.

I have the same feeling..... Larry will get signed somewhere, and now he's got a chip on his shoulder. He always runs better when he's PO'd and has something to prove.

Not that I want him on the Chiefs roster.... but some team out there will take advantage of this.

My only hope is that some dumb team picks up LJ this year, to save the Chiefs the 2.4 million.

I don't care if he rushes for 2000 yards somewhere else. If he's not productive with the Chiefs, he can leave. Simple as that.

The numbers will go down once defenses realize he is a threat...............think....plus they are totally different RB's. Charles isn't even really and every down back either.

You all got what you wanted but I feel ashamed to be affiliated with Chiefs fans atm. The petition was embarrassing. A lot of teams deal with "problem players". It seems we can't and then we name call him.

And the preserving Priest Holmes record thing is pathetic and a disgrace to Holmes.

LJ will do well on another team.

LJ was a cancer to this team from day 1. I know you think highly of his on the field play but look at his rankings. Yes hes number 2 in yards and TDs but hes number 1 on carries all time. So he had more chances with the ball. His arvage per carry was not as good as Priest. LJ was let go becuse he a selfish player not for the record. ITs that simple.

You come off as an LJ fan, not a Chiefs fan, at least to me.

The guy was averaging 2.7 YPC and is turning 30 in 10 days. He was on pace to have the least efficient season of any starting running back in NFL history. What exactly does he do for this football team that gives them a chance to win a football game?

THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best news I've read all season. :yahoo::drunkhb::bananen_smilies046::fan_wave2:

For those who think this will come back to haunt us or that LJ will get a chip on his shoulder and run like he did a few years ago? :lamende: That may be, but that will only last until something else doesn't go his way and the pouting party begins all over again. The only consistency LJ has ever shown us is his ability to be a little b!tch! Good riddance and I am so glad Priest still holds our rushing record.

Umm No. I think my favorite player wouldn't say Succop up there or have the great Stenerud as my pic, plus the sig. He has been under performing but most of it is because of a poor Offensive line and bad play calling. Just like all the Cassel fans blame the offensive line for his sub par performance. Read the sig.

I just don't like to be affiliated with the fan base anymore. Except some of you.

Dont you get it? LJ HATES YOU AND EVERY OTHER CHIEFS FAN. YOU ARENT RICH SO YOUR DOG POO IN HIS OPINION.

Whats disgraceful about wanting a stand up citizen, and a great player/man to hold the record, rather than a selfish man-child WHO HATES THIS FRANCHISE.

Not to mention, that petition had NOTHING to do with LJ's release. It was locker room turmoil coupled with HORRIBLE PRODUCTION.

Didnt you say he would break the record whether we like it or not?

While that won't ring true, this will; Whether you like it or not, your boyfriend is outta here.

I only saw LJ blaming "the coach". Should have kept it to himself but you can't help how you feel. I'm sure there are other frustrated players. He shouldn't have done it but I don't care.

It was very unprofessional, and in the end, contributed greatly to him losing his job.

I think there are some people on the planet that instinctively enjoy being disliked and a catalyst of negativity. I've seen it a hundred times.

With that in mind, I get why you like LJ, Kilo. I really do.


On topic: Adios LJ. Maybe Al Davis will give you a shot... though he's not exactly in need of an aging half back.

LJ could end up having a great run the end of this year, but he'd have to select a team based on the team, not on money. His previous character doesn't show such insight so I highly doubt he selects a team like New England, Green Bay or Houston where he could join a winner, play a role and have a great season.

I see him taking the biggest $$ offer which will likely be a team which can't give him a chance for success.

I highly doubt that LJ will have the luxury of selecting the team of his choice. He'll be lucky to get an offer from anybody.

From USA Today (http://content.usatoday.com/communities/thehuddle/post/2009/11/larry-johnson-chiefs-losing-led-to-his-bad-behavior/1)-

"Johnson blamed his inappropriate conduct on his anger with the Chiefs' poor on-field performance."

""If anybody likes losing, they shouldn't be playing this game," Johnson told Patrick."

This is why LJ will go to some subpar team and if he's lucky he'll be a 2nd stringer. He can't take responsibility for his emotional behavior. It has, and always will be, someone else's fault. LJ, no one likes to lose games. But it comes with the territory of competitive sports. There's always a loser and a winner. Unfortunately, your daddy never instilled in you that things don't always go your way and that your character counts, win or lose.
