LaRon Landry Discusses His Current State With The Redskins With Bleacher Report


Check the link, read up. Apparently LaRon Landry insists the team isn't telling the entire story, and won't pay for his treatment because it wasn't the treatment he wanted. However, he wants to remain with the team and maintains the treatment he is going through is the best for him, his career, the team, etc. He'd rather do this before going under the knife and losing a year & a half before he can even begin working out again.

From that perspective, if 100% truthful (and I can only take LaRon at his word right now), I can see where LaRon is coming from. It supports this rumored theory that perhaps 30 is afraid of surgery (who isn't?) although I won't speculate further on that other than to say he never said he was against having that done, but he'd rather it be a last resort. I prefer seeing LaRon get healthy at any cost, but I'm a fan.

I assumed earlier that this treatment didn't work last year, but the timetable we had said he would have recovered and Landry told people his achilles was eventually at 100%, so why the breakdown? Did the treatment not work? Or was he never really at 100%? Either way, you might be able to call foul on 30 for that one. However, perhaps he felt like he was there and it wasn't. 95% and 100% is hard to differentiate when you're anxious and fueling an adrenaline rush.

As a fan, I hope LaRon does get healthy and I hope he does get another year at the very least to work this out with the team. What I took from this is that he felt hurt and almost betrayed that they wouldn't let him seek his best interests, and I get the sense that LaRon genuinely cares for this team, organization, coaches, and this city. That belief will be tested if the team offers him a contract and he makes his decision; but I'd hope LaRon would be smart enough to stick around here and get everything sorted out and earn his massive payday and redeem whoever is to blame in this situation (assuming anyone is to blame for anything).

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
