    I would say Bennett. He's the backup, or junior rep, or whatever it's called. Could be Mawae, or both.

    Bulluck. Clearly. Posts on another message board said Keith's picture was already blown up to replace McNair's in the Coliseum, should he be released or traded.

    Damn, how much does a Reynaldologist have to bribe to get his image on the stadium.

    Always, and who wouldn't? This was poorly handled and this marks back-to-back seasons of sorrow in the offseason. Not gonna be the same without 9's stability...oh well...another 4-12 season with number one pick PacMan still getting used by every receiver he sees...cuz he's 5'2! how about drafting a bigger corner who can help? Ok....lemme stop ranting...

    Well when those people lose their insurance, or are forced to work longer hours with no OT, or something of that nature, I hope they dont call union reps to help them out. You dont have to agree with everything a union does, and a lot of times they do take advantage of situations, but the idea that a player isnt going to stick with his union is ludicrous. Especially considering the MLBPA is probably the most powerful union in the world, and the NFLPA might not be quite as powerful, but as a player, it would be idiocy to not stick with the union.

    Ya know I understand why Sirmon would have the official position he does regarding the matter, probably marching orders from NFLPA.

    But the guy has already proven himself to be a spineless girly man by faxing a resignation letter right after the Titans signed another OLB.

    He should keep as low a profile as possible IMHO

    Well, Im not going to defend the resignation letter deal, that was stupid. But, the Titans dont want to be a team that looks like they dont play well with the union, if that happens then say goodbye to any future free agents. Any union rep would have done what Sirmon did, and its in the teams best interest not to hold a grudge against him.
