    "I don't want to walk away from this game letting a general manager or a coach or an offensive coordinator or quarterback who may be mad at you that week dictate how many balls you get or how long you're going to play this game," Brown said. "If I had stayed in Oakland, that's what it would have been. I didn't want to go out like that. ... I don't want to give anybody that kind of power over my life."

So if the GM, the coach, the offensive coordinator AND the QB aren't allowed to dictate how many balls the guy gets (because the nasty bastards might happen to conceivably possibly be mad at poor little Tim for a presumably unjustified reason), who in the blue hell DOES decide. Lemme guess. Tim Brown!

And there was me thinking the Bucs binned Keyshawn for that sort of logic.

If one of the 4 have a problem with you I can see the claim but then the other 3 could over-ride that ruling, but if you have an issue with all 4 of them maybe the problem is you Timmy... It will be interesting how he does back with his old coach playing for the Bucs

Whatever happened to keeping your mouth shut. Prove them wrong on the field but for God's sake could athletes occasionally act professionally and not like spoiled brats.
