So Long, Dirty Player
First Tom Brady...then Laurence Maroney...now Rodney Harrison. As the stars of the New England Patriots slowly fall down, has anyone stopped to think maybe these guys got what they deserved? Brady is a cocky S.O.B. and everybody knows that. Maroney gets a pass here since he is young and has no super bowl rings. While Brady is my most hated athlete in sports, Harrison is a close second. Does anyone remember he was suspended last season for using HGH? For some strange reason, Rodney seemed to get a pass when it came to his use of illegal performance-enhancing substances. While the entire universe looked down upon all the baseball players mentioned in the Mitchell Report, everyone failed to notice that Harrison was abusing these substances just as much if not more than the next guy. The human body tends to break down following years of steroid and HGH use and this is exactly what happened to Rodney. The Boston Globe and other media outlets are reporting today that the torn quad suffered on Monday night has ended his season and "for all intents and purposes" his career as well. No tears being shed today by RV99 for the self-proclaimed dirtiest player in football. Harrison is not a first ballot hall of famer, he is not a pro bowler anymore and he is far from a class act. I hope the man disappears out of the game and we never hear from him again. Good riddens, dirty player!
