Que the fans ****ting on the guy. Main reason why I wouldn't give a damn about the "fans" if I was a NFL player.

I'd bet most don't give a damn about the fans anyway.

Hell no! It's all about the money. The minute a player is traded he becomes the enemy there is no loyalty.

And the ones that appear like they do are just playing the politician card. But they don't owe the fans anything more than a good show anyway.

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

Why would Sproles care?
He's on a 3-1 team vs. a 1-3 team.

Queue the fans? Whatever.
Haven't seen our fans slaughter any former players as much as they have slaughtered and defiled our own Quarterback this season.

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

If anything, I'd say the Saints completely respected him. We signed him at a later stage in his career, made him a big part of the offense and he was able to set the NFL AP record. That's not going to happen on another team.

It was impossible when all things are factored in to keep him...other contracts, trying to balance youth with age on the roster, trying to get as much value out of a player before there is none left. The only people who disrespected him were the Chargers when they limited his touches.

Re: Darren Sproles says Saints disrespected him

I like Sproles he's one of my favorite Saints and I'm disappointed the relationship couldn't have ended in a friendly manner.

But it is a business and Sproles should know that. He was due 5 million a year and played on a team with several promising running backs. He had to see it coming. Sean Payton explained to him that the team had to go in another direction BEFORE they told anyone else. It's unfortunate that the trade was leaked but in today's information age, it's difficult to keep anything a secret. He comes off as bitter and unintelligent.

I wish him the best where ever he goes.
