Default Vince Young has NO class

I will probably get bashed for making this post, but here goes anyway.

If the Texans are looking to keep their "high class" player image they DO NOT want Vince Young. I have really tried to like the guy, but he keeps making me hate him.

1) During his pro announcement he REPEATED over and over how he need to "cash in" on this opportunity. Not to mention the guy can could not even speak proper English and shows up to make the biggest decision of his life with a crooked hat and baggy sweat shirt on.

2) He then immediately starting "cashing in" by charging $80 for non personalized autographs and charged an extra $100 for a picture with him.

OK so even if you overlook those 2 acts and blame it on a bad PR manager or immaturity, what he did yesterday really did it in for me.

The Texas Longhorns are invited to THE WHITE HOUSE to meet THE PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES. As the camera scrolls on CNN all the players are wearing very nice suits and ties until it gets to Vince Young. Vince is wearing some baggy jeans with some tennis shoes and a hoodie sweat shirt.

Who does this guy think he is? Have some repect for your elders, your peers, and most of all the country you live in which is about to let you make MILLIONS of dollars for someone who could not even pass their S.A.T. test.

I DO NOT want this guy as the face of our franchise.

I say we throw him in the river...if he floats he is made of wood...then we should burn him.

The problem with the Texans is they are too worried about the "face of the franchise" and need to find some real football players....mean, nasty and all that 'punch you in the mouth' stuff that comes with real football players. I'm more worried about how they play on the field and not how they look in GQ.

Very small rocks... Anybody know where we can get a duck?

Completely aside from who this player is (i.e. I don't think this is unique or particular to VY but is more a societal thing), kids should be taught and expected to act in accordance with some standards of appropriate conduct. I didn't like it when whatever women's team (softball I think) half showed up to the Whitehouse in flip-flops and I don't like it that VY can't be bothered to wear one of the very nice suits someone gave him to wear to the awards ceremonies and the draft. It is disrespectful, but it is more a reflection on these kids parents and society than them.

VY has a thing about not bending to the what society says he should bend toward. I understand a certain amount of militants and irreverence and as long as VY does not cross that line and begin to embarass the struggle I will be happy to see the guy from around my way do his thing. I think he may need to have a talk with his publicist and become more marketable to white society other than Austin and UT men and women, but right now he is really beginning to cater to that MTV crowd so do your thing. This thread does border a bit on that fine line though.

it has been stated about him getting away from the gang issues he had here when he was younger...if he were to sign an NFL contract here, everyone from his past will be trying to get a piece of him...could be a distraction.

In everyline of work you have to bend to what society wants, its called being professional.

This would be against the NBA dresscode.

There's a difference between being an individual and being respectful...VY doesn't know it.

What fly's in the liberal slanted Austin won't fly in the professional world

Boomer, but its completely beside the point. OU has had 3 QB come out that ran the spread, none were worth a damn in the NFL. Thats the difference, most fans know that someone can be great in college but not the NFL, UT fans haven't figured it out.

But when Bush singled him out, Brown admitted: “He didn’t bring his suit.” Later Brown said a relative failed to get it to Young, who has been traveling.

all this fuss over flipflops and a missing suit....

I agree with you .People are now bashing on VY because he doesnt dress to their standards.I really dont care how someone dresses as long as they get it done on the field.Yall people are just haters.I dont see yall supporting DC for having class.Yall keep saying he(DC) has no leadership skills but yet he does all the proper things like showing class and yall still hate on him.

yeah, imagine that...we might actually have a *gasp!* winning season if we got some smashmouth players.

I'm amazed at the length people will go to bash a player. Dislike him for his on-field performance, but c'mon, dissing a guy over what he wears?! What are we, fashion police?

"Professional" world? As in "corporate" world? Sorry, dude, these guys are FOOTBALL players, not executives, and I'm not buying into this "no class" business.

I'm not a Young homer/hater. I just find takes like this a bit distasteful.

FYI Mack can send him somewhere and get him a suit, it no longer violates NCAA rules.

Glad he's making good decisions on who to let handle everyday affairs

If you go to the White House, you wear a suit. I'm sorry, but you should respect the President regardless of your political affiliations. He had no problem wearing a suit to the Heisman ceremony and college football awards. And if he realized that he didn't have a suit while he was in Washington, he could have bought one. There are tons of stores and malls in the DC metro area, and he would have no problem buying a suit to wear to the White House.

still, its the idea of it all. you have to have the respect for the place and person you're seeing. there is no way that, once he got there, he couldn't have gotten a suit in D.C. somewhere. he's a great althelte but his class really comes into question with this. oh, and when i saw the thing in the newpaper about him charging $100 for a picture, i almost choked on my toast. guy could really use some lessons in humility.

I view it as distasteful and not respecting our government/country by not making damn sure everything is in order when visiting the White House. The volleyball team that wore flipflops is in the same league.

Look at the youth of today, most need a good thwack to the head to teach them some class and how to conduct themselves.
