View Full Version : Lmfao... I Wonder Why!!!!

Gee... I wonder why the city of Kansas City doesn't like this guy.

Per PFT:
Chiefs running back Larry Johnson, whose status has gotten lost in the shuffle of a G.M. search, an evaluation of former head coach Herm Edwards, and an effort to find a new head coach, has reiterated his desire to get out of town.

In an interview on 610 Sports in Kansas City, Johnson made his case for a “clean break.”

He said that Kansas isn’t “a fit for me anymore,” pointing generally to the “environment and things that went on.”

“No sense of delaying the inevitable . . . I think it’s time for us to break ties,” Johnson said.

The interview began with a quote from the film Scarface, which Johnson specifically requested.

“You’re all a bunch of f–king *******s,” Al Pacino as Tony Montana said in the quote. “You know why? You don’t have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your f–king fingers and say, ‘That’s the bad guy.’

“So, what [does] that make you, good? You’re not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don’t have that card. Me, I always tell the truth, even when I lie.”

So how did Johnson explain the reason for requesting that quote? “That’s sometimes how I feel when I go in and out of Kansas City,” Johnson said.

Ugh.

“They can easily release me. They can easily trade me,” Johnson explained as to a question regarding the team’s ability under the cap to clear out his big-money deal, signed less than two years ago.

Johnson’s venom was vaguely directed at the “organization,” but not at the players or the coaches. He complained that, when Dick Vermeil was head coach, the team tried to trade him to Tampa.

Johnson also complained about the fact that the team tried to trade him last season.

Citing a “code of ethics,” he objected to his perception that “they’ve been trying to trade me ever since I got there.” (Except, of course, when they gave him that huge contract that he’d now like to ignore.)

As to Kansas City itself, he said that he heard boos when he went to a local basketball game, and boos and “snickering” when he went out in the Kansas City area.

“At a point I didn’t even want to leave my house,” Johnson said.

He insisted that he’s not “misunderstood,” claiming that the team has made no effort to understand him.

Johnson said that one of the “suits” in the organization once told Johnson’s father that the running back “walk[s] around like a rapper.” Johnson complained that the organization has been worried about things other than football.

He made the case for not being a “cancer in the locker room” based on his contention that his music always plays before games, and that teammates ask him about clothing, lifestyle, and where to go on vacation.

“That’s not being a cancer,” Johnson said. “You get that information from guys who don’t want me here.”

Johnson said that he hasn’t spoken to new G.M. Scott Pioli, and that Johnson doesn’t plan to. Johnson also said he hasn’t spoken with any of his teammates.

He said that he prefers playing for an East Coast team, even though his mom apparently would like to see him be a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

Despite the fact that his comments are coming more than three weeks before the launch of free agency, when the big money tends to flow, Johnson doesn’t seem to be insisting on a trade or a release before February 27. And he never said that he won’t show up for mandatory offeseason activities or training camp.

It’s a smart move on his part, given that he is signed for four more seasons. Like the Bengals proved a year ago to another player previously named Johnson, the player doesn’t have the right to fire the team.

Still, we think that Johnson should be a bit more open-minded regarding his position on this. Calling the Chiefs a “rebuilding” operation, Johnson said: “I’ve done what I’ve done for Kansas City, and I’m not getting no younger and the team is getting a lot younger.”

Former Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor felt the same way a year ago as a new regime took over in Miami, led by the father-in-law of the guy who’s now running the show in Kansas City. Nearly a year later, we’ve got a feeling that Taylor would have preferred staying put in the town that Tony Montana once ruled.
*****************************

Uh, here's a hint LJ. Don't go around spitting drinks in women's faces and assaulting them on a regular basis and people won't boo you or whisper about you. You've had two good seasons with the Chiefs. You pouted for a few seasons when you first got here, played well for two seasons, then got hurt, then suspended and STILL almost put up a 1000 yards for a team who "doesn't use you or want you." Get a clue jackass.

You're supposed to be this football historian. Tell me, how many of your childhood idols acted the way you did? OJ Simpson doesn't count. He was already retired before he kill..err drove for a long period of time while being pursued by the entire LA police force for doing nothing wrong. He was also retired before stealing all that crap from Vegas. So, you can't use him.

What have you done to earn the respect of this community? Carried the ball over 400 times in a season? Really? That's supposed to offset all the other bullsh!t you've brought to this team? You said it yourself. You're not getting any younger. You didn't get a quick start to your career. Your chances of going down in history as one of the greatest RBs of all time are slim to none and slim is trying to distance himself from you because you're such an A-HOLE!! I've got an idea, how bout you shut the EFF up, be happy with that huge *** bullsh!t contract of yours and quit assaulting women who hurt your feelings.

It's becoming more and more apparent every year that this guy never "took the diapers off." He whines more than my 9 week old puppy. The two or so seasons that LJ was able not to NOT take a dump on the city seems to have been a fluke. Somebody go get the pampers and the pacifier... you know what, forget the pacifier, I've got something else this jackass can suck on.

L J is a problem child, but does not appear to be a locker room cancer since the other players don't complain about him. he is still productive considering he was behind one of, if not the worst, offensive lines in the nfl yet still managed to be the leading rusher in 7 of 16 games this year. add in our defense ranked last against the run he was the games leading rusher not the CHIEFS leading rusher in those 7 games. not lookin as bad as everyone said. can't trade him for enuf value otherwise he'd be gone. if we settle for a little just to get rid of him, Charles could gain the yards but won't last the season, then we have taken one step forward and two steps back. i fear we are stuck w/him for another year

I wouldn't mind keeping him for the rest of his career. I agree. I think he's still going to be quite productive for a few years to come. He just needs to quit this childish BS and shut his mouth. He hasn't earned the right to act like this. Period. I can take it a little more from TG. He's ALWAYS a class act in everything he does. He's a perennial Pro Bowler and will go down as the best TE in history... LJ's resume doesn't even deserve being mentioned in the same book, let alone same sentence or being on the same page. LJ has a great contract. If he's not a cancer in the locker room, he needs to make some new friends in there and hang out with those guys so he's not being picked on so much.

LJ at one time was a productive back. He signs for 47 mil, runs into blockers and falls down or makes a beeline for the sideline. LJ is done in KC.
Maybe someone else can get a couple years out of him. I'm tired of LJ spitting on our women - and sh!tting on our town...

he says its easy for the chiefs to trade him or let him go, why doesnt he renegotiate his contract so that thats actually true?

What a doucher! If it wasnt for his ridiculous salary I would say cut him, but becuase of it, we are stuck with him unless he is willing to renegotiate with the trade team for less money. And I think we all know how likely that is to happen.

I'm tired of this guy as well. LJ's teetering on the edge of being washed-up within the next few years and hasn't done enough in his career to establish himself as one of the NFL's historical greats. Terrell Davis has more legendary status and is more deserving of rememberance than Larry Johnson. (I don't think either guy will ever make the HOF because they both had very "flash-in-the-pan" success though Davis' career was cut short due to injury.) LJ hid behind the NFL's best o-line for two seasons and let his head swell (even more than it already was), as a result. It really is a shame that somebody with so much natural talent and physical strength can't keep his ego out of the way to keep from tripping over it.

I say we keep him. Why loose money and production just cause he doesn't want to be here?

Keep him. Get his *** in gear and actually use him. Since what happen the only game where we actually used him this year? Oh ya he ran all over the Donks.
He is still one of the best backs in the league right now when he is used. He even said himself he needs 20+ carries a game to get going to tire down the defense enough to break thru for the big yards. He also said himself he despises loosing. Hence his bad attitude. I respect the guy he wants to win. I wish alot of others on this team had his passion for winning cause maybe we would have stuck out those close wins this season! His off field antics are BS yes and he has apologized and hopefully keeps his nose clean.

We won't trade him and he will show up and work just like he is supposed to and nobody will ***** about him in the locker room cause he keeps to himself when he's upset hence you always see him on the sidelines by himself. I respect that. I love LJ and will be extremely upset if he leaves.

i agree about his head and ego, but he is no more or less on the verge of being washed up than tomlinson. remember he was the games leading rusher in 7 of 16 games this year, the last two seasons Priest played L J averaged 2yds/carry more. there is still a couple two three seasons left in him. if we could get a second round pick for him , take it, but i doubt if that will happen.

LJ and LT are both approaching the twilight of their careers. That is what I meant by on the verge of "being washed-up". I should have worded it differently and with more clarity. They both have a few years left but I don't think LJ will accomplish enough in that time to establish himself as one of the league's all-time greats or a HOF'er. LT, on the other hand, has probably already accomplished enough in his career and with a little padding of his stats, should be a lock for the HOF in the opinions of many.

i'll agree, L T has a much greater body of work/career than L J and would certainly deserve cosideration, while L J should not even get a mention. now if he rushe:lol: s for 4,000yds each of the next two years i'll change my mind.

No, he's not a cancer in the locker room. All this whining about not wanting to be on the team has a great and positive attitude in the locker room. His running up to the line and falling down, yeah those are the things teams are made out of. His constant getting on the air and telling how much he hates Kansas City and would rather go somewhere else, yeah all of those things are great team building techniques and go a long way in showing all these younger players what it means to be a pro football player!

Johnson, you are not misunderstood, we understand your type perfectly well. You are a whiner that did not get you A$$ beat enough as a child and never learned about work ethic and what it means to be a team player!
