So a few years ago we all thought it was strange for Blount to do what he did to get out of Pittsburgh only to be swooped up by the Pats. Well last week Martelius Bennett told the Packers doctors he needed surgery on his shoulder and couldn’t play, then went on to bad mouth said Packer doctors who said he was ok. Packers of course believed their doctors and cut Bennett early in the week. Then of course the Patriots claim him on waivers cause they knew he was ok and of course he was ok cause he played Sunday night. Wonder if Bill made a call and said we sure could use you if you can find a way to get cut we will sign you, wink wink. This is the type of shit them damn cheaters get away with time and time again.

This plus this:

Outliers are outliers for a reason

I read this story earlier and find it very interesting. The fact that all of these Packers are coming forward and backing up the packers doctor is kinda damning of Bennett.

Bennett seems like a strange dude tho.

Yea, him and his brother. I just find it odd an NFL player under contract would risk getting cut and therefore not getting paid unless he knew he would get taken care of once cut, hence a prearranged deal with the Patriots. Everyone knows those bastards will do whatever is necessay by any means necessary, even if they get caught.

Yes, agreed. Something about this story doesn’t add up.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure this is a case requiring explicit collusion.

Dude's agent probably easily calculated NE would be a buyer....then schemed with Bennett to make himself available. You know NE makes these moves when they have a need, so they don't have to resort to any sort of tampering.

I'm not sure how you police this. And, once again, NE is somewhat unique in that they, far more than anyone, somehow easily plug-n-play guys on both sides of the ball.

Also, Bennet's salary this year was already guaranteed at this point. So he loses nothing if he's cut and isn't picked up (I think). GB, for their part, only gets relief for the remainder of his salary this year (I think) if he's picked-up. But given how his deal was structured, I don't see where GB saved anything (his deal was basically vet min in salaries this year). So for whatever reason - why reward/incentivise this behavior? He wants to IR himself, fine do it and then ban him from the team and facilities for running his mouth.

I wish the Steelers would cheat like the Patriots and I wish Art2 had half the drive Kraft has.

Bennett and his brother are both scumbags with a ridiculous level of victim mentality. They are what's wrong with the world. And before you whine and moan about their charities, I don't give a fuck about their charities.

If not for the Pats constantly beating our asses, the Steelers would probably be the outliers.

Witch Hunt. The NFL will do nothing. Look like malcontent envious fans with an axe to grind. Better to just Get over it and move on. JMO
