Meet Albert Haynesworth, one of your newest Patriots. He's been characterized as everything from the best D-lineman in football, to a team cancer, to the worst person in football, and, I'm just assuming, he's in the running for worst human being in America...He better be damn good at football.
-Albert Haynesworth on being a multi-millionaire: Fresh of signing a $100 mm contract and receiving a $21 million signing bonus: "I guess in this world we don't have a lot of people with, like, backbones," Haynesworth said. "Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want or whatever. I mean, does that mean everything is for sale? "I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but ... that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever."
Very good Albert, that doesn't make you a slave. It does make you an employee though, and I have a feeling you don't quite grasp the employee-employer relationship.
-Albert on His Pending Sexual Assault Charge: After a waitress accuses him of grabbing her boob in February... “I didn’t touch her,” Haynesworth responded, according to the document, adding that he doesn’t “even like black girls.”...“I know what this is about, she is just upset I have a white girlfriend. I couldn’t tell you the last time I dated a black girl. She was trying to get with me.”
Frankly I'm inclined to believe him, you'd have to be an absolute moron to offer that up as your legal defense unless it's the honest to goodness truth.
