    Total prick on the field, but like so many others we don't know their whole story off it. Just like people we think are honest but turn out to disappoint, it's probably better to hold off on judging the person by how we perceive them.

    I've compared him to Bruce Bowen many times in the past and I still think the comparison fits...I type this before I even click on the link provided by the OP..I already was aware of his charity work and work in the community (exactly like what Bowen does).


    Still can't stand him though...sorry. Just like I can't stand Bruce Bowen. I do have somewhat of a respect for them though, because atleast both players recognize their shortcomings, realize they have to play a part to make it in the NFL/NBA, both were long shots but had long productive careers, and both players play that heel role perfectly. They're both dirty as hell though and the only thing that would've been better than watching AJ ***** slap Innegan, would've been able to watch the Dream ***** slap the shit out of Bruce Bowen.

    Oh well...I guess I'll have to settle for Andre and his "giant" can of whoop ass...not a bad consolation prize. :)

    I'll never respect Innegan. I don't care what kind of a guy he is off the field because on it, he is nothing but a dirty sob.

    What's there to admire about someone who aspires to be the dirtiest player in the league? The comparison to Bowen is apt, but where Bowen has an ounce of talent, Finnegan gets by on playing chippy and facemasking during the jam.

    Bowen got by doing the same exact thing. He would kick, scratch, and employ some of the dirtiest tactics that ended up injuring other players. Bruce Bowen was even dirtier than Cortland Innegan.
