    I will give you credit for giving them to your employees but that is all

    again you have no clue about what I am thinking. I have said from the start he isn't worth that much money.

    Heck at this point they can trade him. Lets see how many teams give up their top draft picks plus have to come up with a salary that he is looking for. I doubt there would be any teams interested esp knowing what he wants.

    I don't believe there was racist comments. You do but neither of us know for sure. Only one way to prove it is for him to post them which won't happen

    Could have been the same person or even the same comments- who knows?

    I'll admit there is no way for CJ to "win" clarifying or defending this tweet, especially until the ink is dry on his BIG, FAT, SUPER-RICH DEAL :greedy: he is about to score. He'll see more money than either of us will ever see...........and he'll probably waste more money than we'll ever earrrrrrrrrnnnnn.......... :D

    boo hoo...are you really THAT bent out of shape about it?

    He made a bad tweet, realized it, and tried to cover it up. Stop crying and find something else to care about than CJ's twitter..

    Terry McCormick seems to think they're close.

    http://ten.247sports.com/Article/Titans-and-Chris-Johnson-appear-to-be-close-to-an-agreement-37913

    "Barring setbacks, a deal could happen in the next 24 to 48 hours. Earlier this week, Titans coach Mike Munchak said the deal probably needed to get done by this weekend in order for Johnson to be able to contribute fully in the season opener in Jacksonville on Sept. 11.

    Another league source indicated to TitanInsider that there was “definite movement” in the talks which reportedly picked up again Tuesday and Wednesday after a face-to-face meeting last week in Nashville proved mostly unproductive."

    I just hope we can ALL move past this CJ bashing once he signs. I don't necessarily think ALL of us will, but a man can hope. We are ALL Titans fans, and CJ is the biggest star we have. It would be a shame if people hold butt-hurt grudges over a holdout that will already be a thing of the past. Please let it go and support ALL of our players!

    Kaeotik ... nothing moves fans passed grudges better than a big play. One 40 yard CJ td and all will be forgotten. Hell look a Vick for example .. everyone hated his guts and now nobody even talks about it.

    I know what your talking about. I saw the tweet as soon as it was posted thanks to whoever posted the link trying to prove Jesse wrong.

    The point being made was that if people were making racist comments in the comments of the article, its highly likely that there were racist tweets as well.

    See the connection? Keep up ;-D

    I don't get why people care so much about what he's paid. I, for one, could not care less as long as he's on the field week one(that includes his current salary, too). I think it's a forgone conclusion that he won't get Fitzgerald money.
