If the Patriots win the superbowl, does Hanysworthless get a ring?
Isn't it up to the team if the player is no longer on the team? I would guess the answer is, "NO WAY IN HELL." But that is just my uneducated opinion.
Why would you reward a fired employee ??
Fat Albert doesn't, but Mushmouth and Dumb Donald definitely will get one. Jury is still out for Weird Harold.
I dunno. I don't know the rules. Wasn't sure if it is automatic if you play in a game you get one? On the team at some point? Or if the team gets to decide?
It feels like such a long time ago that Al was on the team.
It really is too bad he couldn't have gotten in shape and kept his attitude in check; the potential to have an awesome DL was there.
I'm pretty sure there are no rules about such things.
There are, however, customs and expectations.
According to a recent Reiss chat, the team decides who gets rings. My guess is that Albert doesn't get one, nor does he deserve it.
What about Rudy?
I certainly hope that fat idiot doesn't get a ring. He doesn't deserve anything from the Pats.
Can we shake hands with trees and watch elephants fly? anyone?
Terry Glenn didn't get one in 2001.
Didn't he refuse it?
I would send him one purely out of spite.
I'd send him a ring that I found in a cracker jack box, but that's about it.
He got traded by week 4 or 5. BB decided not to give him a ring.
After the first Super Bowl victory I think all Patriot employees got a ring (including people who hand out programs).
I hope he gets one. That will be one entertaining episode of pawn stars once he blows through his 100M in career earnings and is forced to sell it.
We have to win the game first before anyone gets a ring.
Thank you for that insightfully contribution.
Just sayin', don't put the cart before the horse.
I'd rather have that guy who plowed over the light post in front of Gillette on live TV get one, than Hainesworth.
I would rather him than Sergio brown but to each his own.
I had a question regarding superbowl rings.
I can't asked that because we might lose.
Alright, I was being a wise-*****. I think he will get one based on his PT even though he got released judging from what the organization has done in the past.
Budeep a bubba da beep my lubba.
My hebba hurts.
Nope, although he was quoted as saying had it been offered he would have...
I believe the league pays for rings (or pays a predetermined amount to cover the cost of) for the players on the 53 man roster (and probably the coaching and FO staff). Who gets one beyond that is up to the team (to pay for) and/or the players. I believe the players voted on who on IR or otherwise inactive or on the PS got them in 2002 - possibly along with SB $$ shares. Katzenmoyer was offered one but declined. The team certainly would never have offered one to Glenn, he was trying to sue them over his signing bonus at the time - a suit he had to drop as part of his trade to GB. But he didn't have much support in the locker room, either. Many players believed he was faking injury to avoid playing in addition to not taking any responsibiity for his screw ups. A lot of guys in the NFL grow up under difficult circumstances and don't allow it to become an automatic excuse.
They cut Albert and if it ended there someone might have tried to make a case that he tried to help and was just not healthy. But then he went to work in TB and did the same damn thing so... No, if they win he will not get a ring.
They didn't all get the same ring for openers and I doubt anyone on suspension or cut in week 5 as a program hander outer got one either
I don't know what the conventions or traditions are for this but Haynesworth did nothing here to earn that bauble. In fact some of his play allowed an easy TD to be scored against us as I recall and after that he caught hell from Pepper Johnson. Soon after that he was gone. I suspect he gets nothing.
Because they contributed to the success of your season to one degree or another. I'm not saying this is my feeling specifically about Albert but I think there can be people who are no longer with a team who deserve one.
If Ross Ventrone isn't on our team anymore do you think he deserves one?
