    I don't. He complained in public while employed by the Chargers, biitched up a storm about being underpaid/underappreciated and went off on A.J. after he was cut.

    Also his rude wife sat in our section a couple of years ago and made an *** out of herself.

    The only thing I don't like about him getting cut is that the Chiefs immediately improved.

    Ya gotta feel for tight end Michael Merrit. Busted for weed, and he loses his job?

    Uh... did he simply fail to "crotch his skunk"? Or was he transporting Nate Newton-like amounts? :icon_shrug:

    Donnie haters have to face the facts and offically eat crow. Our ILB play clearly did not improve after his departure as was so boldly predicted. It got worse, much worse.

    No one can tell me we wouldn't have been much stronger with Cooper having a great cover LB like Edwards next to him over the last two years. If you try to you are simply fooling yourselves.

    Even an old Donnie is better than Wilhem every game, every time.

    How so? You mentioned him complaining in public about no being happy with his contract with the Chargers. Did he go to the media and say that?

    If I recall it correctly, he did mention it to some people and the word got around. But AJ blew it up for everybody to see.

    I think he handled his depart poorly, and he left at the right time. But I do think while he was here contributed and often was a bit under-rated (I remember everyone complaining his tackles always came after gains). But he was a solid player and I think we still haven't found players that match 05 or 06 Donnie.

    He may have *****ed and drank his own kool aid a bit at the end, but he was a solid player and I feel bad for any player when they come to end of a long career, especially one that contributed a lot to this team.

    If my memory serves me correctly, Donnie, was whining to some marines getting ready for deployment to Iraq. I'm sure some kid that will be dodging sniper fire in Baghdad in the next week or so is going to feel sorry for Donnie. How insensitive can the guy be, whining about not making millions when this kid's life is on the line for peanut's.

    If you can't understand that, then there is NO hope for you.
