Hasta La Vista, Larry!

Somehow I find it ironic that Larry Johnson would get released the same day LeGarrette Blount was reinstated by the University of Oregon. I also find it ironic that he would have the nerve to call others the three letter “F” word while posing in such a gay fashion with a teammate. But hey, that’s Larry for you!

As for those Kansas City fans that never warmed up to Larry, and there were plenty of them, this particular nightmare is finally over. After several years of embarrassing himself, the team and most of the city, the Larry Johnson era is officially over.
“Thanks, Larry! And don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way to irrelevancy!”

We could all see this one coming, couldn’t we? I mean you just don’t insult your boss the way he did and expect to keep your job. And believe me, that’s exactly what this is about. The Political Correctness of punishing him for using a gay slur was simply window dressing. It gave the team an easy out… a socially responsible excuse for getting rid of a troubled has-been that wasn’t producing on the field and who was a distraction off the field.

Let’s face it… if Larry were putting up Chris Johnson or Cedric Benson numbers, he would still be with the Chiefs. But Todd Haley knows his team is going nowhere this year, and Johnson isn’t in his plans for next year. So why not cut bait? It’s smart to move on and give someone else a chance to distinguish themselves.

If Larry hopes to ever make something of himself again, he should take a page out of LeGarrette Blount’s hand book for rehabilitating one’s image. If you get another shot, then keep your mouth shut. And if you do open your mouth, deliver on what you promise.
