Mike Sims-Walker Was Too Busy Getting His Freak On to Help the Team
Many a fantasy team was hurt on Sunday by the surprise inactivation of Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker, who had been a stud in weeks 2-4, catching 19 passes for 278 yards and 3 touchdowns. Luckily if you had been listening to Sporting News Radio the hour leading up to gametime on Sunday you would have heard the news courtesy of the sports update guy. Anyway, considering there were no signs of Sims-Walker having any medical problems during the week, this news was quite a surprise and all we were told was that he broke a team rule.
Since the the Jags were in Seattle over the weekend, you had to figure Sims-Walker violated curfew and now it comes out that was exactly the case:
Sims-Walker missed bed check Friday night due to a late-night rendezvous with a lady friend, according to an NFL source, who described the situaton by saying, “undefeated and untied.”
OK, this might be a dumb question but … “undefeated and untied,” is that referring to Sims-Walker’s record with the ladies on the road? Anyone? Anyone? And dude, you think having 52 guys, a coaching staff, and a fanbase is bad pissed at you is bad, wait til you see what the thousands of fantasy owners who were screwed by this sharade have to say.
Next time you want to get your socks blown, Mike, do it earlier in the night or wait until after the game. C’mon now, you can’t be acting this irresponsibly when you have an entire country of fantasy owners relying on you! See what you do to Maurice Jones-Drew??
