ok .. so:
1. Either you didn't read this thread and now look like you're incompetent; or
2. You just simply can't read.
.. WHERE in any of those articles does it say Beast was a cancer in the locker room or that he walked into Riv's office after the Giants game asking to be traded?
The closest any of those articles comes to saying anything that even resembles what we have discussed thus far is where it's mentioned Beast said he knew he had talent and could benefit a team somewhere and Carolina made that happen
so you're just gonna add all that to that paragraph? hahaha - nice try
so, again - where's your link? And please do not say NJPanther
While I've popped in and out of the thread, no one needs to read 16 pages of posts to fulfill your specific request of providing proof that Beason requested a trade and may have been more negative than the organization lets on. Since you continue to argue your incorrect point, let's try this again with something a bit more blunt - http://espn.go.com/b...name/jon-beason
The decision to trade Jon Beason began with an 8 a.m. Thursday conversation between the linebacker and Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera at Bank of America Stadium.
During their heart-to-heart, Beason made it clear he could still be viable as a starter even though the Panthers had opted to replace him with Chase Blackburn.
By early evening, a deal to move Beason to the winless New York Giants, pending a physical to be taken on Friday in New Jersey, for a late-round draft pick was well in the works.
Rivera would not say whether Beason asked to be traded, but acknowledged the three-time Pro Bowler broached the topic of playing somewhere else. Knowing how proud Beason is, how badly he wants to remain a starter . . . well, you read between the lines.
Through it all, Rivera said Beason remained the ultimate professional. As upset as he may have been about things that were being written about him the past few weeks, that never was a factor in the support he gave to the coaching staff and his players -- even the one that replaced him.
Per Rivera, Beason was completely professional, as fans of his entire career would expect. I made no assertion about him being a cancer, only that he requested the trade and that if he can admit that he's an MLB at heart, then casual fans need to realize it as well. However, if you re-read some of the comments in my first link, one could reasonably conclude that Beason harbored some negativity during his final weeks here (http://www.nj.com/gi...ters_wrong.html)
you just admitted the Giant's gamble was "small"
so you're saying a "small" gamble on a former probowl MLB potentially in his prime for a 7th is a win/win? lol
also do you realize there likely will be occasions where we will play the Giants to advance in the playoffs or to win the wildcard?
man - people start getting nasty when they are getting run over and can't find anything else to say - feel better?
This second point is subjective and I'm not the one getting nasty - you have simply been proven wrong on Beason asking to be traded, you disagree with those who view Beason's value differently than you, and now are the one calling names. Yes, getting anything in return for a player who is no longer in an organization's plans and who after 2 full games back following consecutive season-ending injuries *may* only be a shell of their former self is a win. Yes, getting a player with a glaring recent injury history and having them appear to be healthy and elevate your defense is a big win. Thus, win-win.
