"Mr. Class" Larry Johnson uses what's left of Earl Campbell as justification for hold out

Getdafuck outta Earl's way.


Larry Johnson tells Whitlock that he may hold out of training camp (or further) if he doesn't get a new contract. We feel ya, LJ: man's got to take care of business. But then he has to drag Earl Campbell's name into the mess.

[L]ook at Earl Campbell. He’s not complaining, but he can barely walk. He’s sitting in wheelchairs. He can’t sit at banquets for a long amount of time before he has to leave. It’s sad to have to watch him go through what he has to go through. You look at me; I don’t want to be like that. But I may end up like him.


If by "like" Earl Campbell, LJ means "in the hall of fame," there's not much chance of that happening. In the meantime, if, as they say, Johnson wants Peyton money he better hope the Chiefs have forgotten all about a guy named Priest Holmes.

[Note: also, we are geeked at the prospect of more Big Sexy on Foxsports.com.]

pretty sure fucking flubby could've run for close to a 1,000 yds behind willie roaf

Unsilent Majority said...

Earl's one of my all time favorites...but LJ reps the ROC.

I'm torn.

flubby said...

No lie: my HS coach told me I ran like "an old woman."

lieutenant winslow said...

i stand by my earlier statement

Burnsy said...

LJ was on ROC? I thought that was Charles Dutton.

Earl's holding that ball like a loaf of bread...

BeaverFever said...

they don't make facemasks like they use to. anyone else notice the pony's earl is wearing.

also, lj is free to retire whenever he wants.

LJ should pay a visit to Asante Samuel's tattoo artist. I hear getting the phrase "Get Paid" tattooed on your body makes a team more likely to give in.

lieutenant winslow said...

thank god carl peterson isn't an inflexible, stubborn prick notorious for cutting off his nose to spite his face. i'd hate to see LJ back himself into a corner and have to hold out through training camp only to be traded for draft picks in late august

Shoopmonster said...

It doesn't matter how much LJ makes. If the Chiefs keep pounding him that much, he will be the tortoise to Earl Campbell's hare.

Jackin'4Beats said...

Whatever her gets paid is still more than we'll ever see in a lifetime. The point is like shoopmonster said is that the Chiefs have no idea how to balance their offensive attack so they don't need to run him 400+ times in a season.

Blame the GM - if he can't put together a decent team, why should LJ want to be the next Jamal Anderson?

Josh said...

I still have no idea what you see in that fucktard Jason Whitlock. Besides a lot of fat.

Weed Against Speed said...

Say what you want about Earl Campbell, he probably can get around better than Whitlock will be able to at Earl's age.

Otto Man said...

As a Chiefs fan, this has been a delightful off-season. I'm assuming the next step is Tony Gonzalez being mistakenly deported by the border guard.

What? No faith in Brodiave Grohyle?

Carl is Crockett

Beaver, excellent call on the Pony's. Also, it appears to me that Earl is rocking the infamous "t-bird" face mask. From what I'm told, anyone who played HS football at a public school should know what I'm talking about.

BeaverFever said...

swolestice, if you are as old as i am you probably owned a pair of pony's. and yes that facemask did bring back memories of h.s. football back in the 80's
