    Request a trade in middle of season
    Publicly apologizes
    Cryptic tweets about snakes in grass directed at organization
    Busted for PED and masking

    What am I missing here?

    The Captain wants out, rips team, and gets busted for PED's.

    It's all on him.

    Crybaby PPat, good riddance, buddy.

    He gone in two years anyway, once free agency starts. Unless he screws up again somehow, then he will be gone sooner.

    Who is showing him sympathy? all of his negativity stems from his own actions.

    Well, it seems, a lot of fans default to criticism of organization for not reworking his contract, and Bickley defended him too, welcome back week 7.

    Reap what you sow, PPat

    He does not want to be here, his trade value is diminished greatly, just a cluster he created.

    But he wants to blame others.

    I have not seen anyone criticize the team for not reworking his contract to save him money for failing his drug tests.

    Turn on 98.7.

    I made it 5 mins on today’s morning show before I turned it off. Every excuse imaginable was brought up

    I could care less about the morning show hacks. I assumed he meant on this board and I have seen ZERO sympathy on this board.

    Almost as brutal as listening to Gambo breathlessly hype the new Bento Box at Pei Wei, or his "friends" at the Lund Mortgage Team.

    No sympathy unless you are equating not giving him away for pennies on the dollar in trade as sympathy.

    I don't get why PP would think the Cardinals would re-work his contract to cover his suspension costs when he said that he wants to be a FA in two years and refused any talks of an extension.

    1. Last year mid-season he demanded a trade
    2. Does a 180 at golf tournament claiming he wants to follow Larry's footsteps and be the "Face of the Franchise" (he probably knew then about the PED suspension)
    3. Tells Keim to rework his contract so he wouldn't have to take a hit financially for the suspension but won't agree to an extension

    PP has made millions from the Cardinals and is showing his true colors with his actions contradicting his words.

    Great player, but a narcissistic greedy diva.

    I cannot listen to Gambo. He makes my head hurt.

    There’s not sympathy, there are apologists. Different. Apologists refuse to believe their team can ever do any wrong and perform mental gymnastics to find any way to absolve their team and players of wrong doing.

    Of course there is a possibility that PP taking the banned suppliment was simply a mistake, but we also doon't have proof that it was.

    He should just accept that he messed up and he should accept that he will lose some money as well.

    The league has to approve of all contracts, and would never approve of a coordinated restructuring solely for the purpose of avoiding the financial impact of his fine/lost pay for suspension. He wants to go full Boldin.
