Slauson is Sorry.
Well, good for him. I think it takes a real man to own up to his mistakes, especially on a national level like this. Cushing doesn't have to accept his apology but I think it shows great character to reach out and try to apologize.
Take it with a grain of salt because Im pretty sure that right after it happened he was being a dbag and wasn't sorry AT ALL.
Slauson was getting owned in that game and he resorted to a cheap tactic. He's a POS in my book, and I was happy when the Texans rocked Mangold's life later in the game (give him credit he soldiered through it) karma is a ***** and Im sure Slauson will get his. Im glad Cush didnt answer the phone.
Normally I'd say "Good for him."
But not this time. Screw THAT guy.
Apology effort does not make up for what was not just a "bad decision," it was a frustration moment and it cost us our best LB. I think it cost us a lot.
This is the sort of thing where you wish our team was maybe a little bit nastier. Might as well level the playing field, at least let teams know payback will occur.
What did he own up to? That Cush was injured? Nowhere in that statement did he admit that he made a jackass play.
It's as bad as a "I'm sorry that you're offended."
I hope he still burns in a lake of fire.
He said "it was a frowned upon block", "I think about it all the time", sounds like the guy genuinely feels bad for the guy. He went out of his way to track down Cushing's phone number and tried to call and apologize to him personally.
All I'm saying is that I respect someone who is willing to offer an apology. Seems like a lot of you would have preferred if he didn't try to apologize to Cushing at all. To each his own.
May the LORD rain down burning coals and brimstone on the wicked! A whirlwind is what they deserve!
Cool first post guy.
I think this is the most telling part of the quote
Translation: PLEASE Mr. Cushing, Sir... don't take my face off next time you see me on the field! ...okay..??
It looks like he tried denial of fault, it didn't clear his conscience, so now he's moving on to acceptance and apology. Even d-bags can possess sympathy. There are very few people in civilized society who truly lack sympathy like Albert Haynesworth. Now that guy is a POS.
Umm, he dove at Cushing's knees from behind. It was premeditated no doubt, and no amount of crocodile tears will change that.
I saw it as a guy sorry for what he did. Some of you people show the world you never played a down in your life.
That is great and all Slauson trying to apologize, but Cushing doesn't really seem to me like the type of guy to kiss and make up. Slauson should be afraid. Very afraid.
I'd be more willing to believe him if he said this within a few days of the incident, not 5 months later. He appealed the fine too, and clearly didn't think it was illegal:
Yeah, **** this guy.
