some players never learn


(Editor's Note: This story was orginally posted on our 'mothership' site, The full article and recent updates can be found here.)

While we await the findings of the Chiefs internal investigation into what Larry Johnson did, or didn’t say, and how long he’ll be suspended, we can sit back and enjoy the outburts of former KC coach Marty Schottenheimer. Here’s a taste of what he had to say on his SIRIUS NFL radio show today:

“Maybe he thinks that he can force his way out (of Kansas City). Let me ask you this, of the other 31 teams in the National Football League, who in the world is going to bring him into their locker room?

“Whether they’re losing or, certainly they won’t if they’re winning. But, to me, the guy doesn’t have the skill level to warrant the kind of b.s. that they’re putting up with out there and I would not be surprised to see them run him right out of town.”

Just a sec, Mr. Schottenheimer: you mean to tell me there wouldn’t be 31 teams lining up to sign a 30-year-old, 2.7 YPC running back? You jest.


Chiefs To Larry Johnson: Keep Away

Considering how Larry Johnson spent his past two days -- lashing out against his head coach and directing homophobic slurs at both a fan (via Twitter) and the media (in person) -- it is hardly surprising that today the Kansas City Chiefs told him to keep far away from the team.

Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been asked to stay away from team activities, and he is not at team headquarters today as Kansas City returns to practice.

It is not a suspension but is similar to the punishment Johnson faced after last year's bye week, when the Chiefs benched him after a series of arrests.

The official statement from the team:

The Kansas City Chiefs and the National Football League are continuing to investigate the alleged comments made by Larry Johnson. Until that review is complete, the Chiefs have instructed Larry to refrain from practicing with the Chiefs or participating in other team activities. A decision regarding Larry’s status will be made once the investigation has concluded.
