I think he would have been in camp if not for the commisioner stepping in and handing out some discipline. That team is in disarray, and until this latest vince issue with his wanting to sleep with his own blankey, they have shown little or no backbone in dealing with their players.

(heh . . . those two hits of sunshine that I dropped that night made it a reaally nice concert )

I can't believe that was fricken 30 years ago . . . Holy ****!

This apparently wasn't Young's first infraction...............when you're a rookie and the team leader and QB.........you can't even be responsible for being on a team flight?:


Quote:
As for the off-field issues, remember this is a man who missed a team flight but was allowed to play last year. It was only a preseason game, so coach Jeff Fisher didn't hesitate to force him out against Washington for going home when he was supposed to stay at the team hotel. Young bolted the locker room without talking to the media, another blunder. Stand up for your mistakes, Vince.

I doubt his dalliance is treated as anything more by his teammates than an opportunity to razz him about getting caught. These are young guys who joke around and break rules sometimes. This was a minor thing and I doubt he'll be doing it again. I'm absolutely positive Texans have broken curfew rules during training camp too.

I think there is a lot more excitement and discussion of the seriousness of his action and the interpolation of what it all means here on the board than the Titans' locker room.

He must really be ruining that team. I don't know how he'll ever be able to lead them to victory again.


The Titans certainly aren't a starched shirt corporate team, that's for sure. I know they've had/still have a couple of glaring bad apples, but still they are mainly a bunch of guys with similar ethics/morals as any team, even the Texans. I don't think they'll fall apart over Vince's bad example.

I just think it's kind of funny. What was the crime? He slept at home. He better hope the Feds don't catch wind of it. I'm sure there may be a little more to the story too, but I doubt a lot more.

I understand he may be setting himself up to be perceived by his teammates as being above the rules, and I know that can be a bad dynamic. A lot of stars get prima donna treatment if they win though; that happens across all sports.

Rules are for mortals. Vince is above all that nonsense. The sooner the Titans FO realizes their mistake of trying to harness Football God, the sooner they can get on with the business of winning the next 15 Super Bowls.

I wonder ...

I also wonder if any Texans have ever broken rules ... except for motorcycles, wreckless driving, DWI, girls in rooms at the hotel, etc.

Just training camp hijinks - I should have said "girl" and "room" singular. I can't make it any less diaphanous than that.

Nah - just in the double standard.

Everyone likes to hold Vince to a higher standard while at the same time stating he is less than special. I'm surprised the cognitive dissonance doesn't make people's heads fly apart.

Disclaimer: I did not want to choose Young in the draft, and his play has surprised me at the pro level. I admit that he's a lot more effective than I expected this early in his career.

I don't hold The Greatness to a higher standard. He is the higher standard!

People that state he is less than special will be sacrificed at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday for blasphemy.
