As an NFL Player, What Is The Worst News You Could Get?

J HartmanCorrespondent IOctober 12, 2009

Imagine you get to your locker and "the note" is taped to it saying "see me in my office"!


You know it's something big but you have no idea what!  You haven't been in the dog house, you have played okay lately, you didn't sleep with the coaches wife......


The coach says "come on in Joe, have a seat"  You can tell by the look on his face that life is about to get ugly!  The coach says...."ummmmm, Joe, I'm sorry to tell you this but you've been traded to (pick the worst organization in the NFL)".  So what is the worst thing he could say at this point?

Detroit?  Detroit is a terribly nasty city with no glimmer of hope of being better any time soon.  The weather sucks, however, they do have the Red Wings and the Lions are looking up....right?

Oakland? Oakland is near the ocean and has pretty nice weather, but they have Al Davis and their head coach may go to jail soon!

Cleveland? Cleveland is also a nasty city with no hope of getting out of their own way any time soon.  The weather sucks but the fans are willing to fill the stadium regardless of how bad the organization is.

What news would make you want to work at McDonald's?

Where can I comment?
