  • In Regards to Odell Thurman

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=090...o&confirm=true

    I've been reading about this for a while on PFT and it seems like he got cut because he basically took too long mourning his grandmother's death.

    The, "His grandmother's been buried for quite a while. Don't get into his whole family structure," quote from Marvin Lewis really bothered me because my own has been in intensive care for about 3 weeks with a torn aorta and my family was at one point informed he was basically brain dead. (It's cool they were wrong).

    It's crazy because I scoffed when Joey_Potter called them the worst franchise, now I believe it.

    It's a buisness, I don't blame them. You need production, not sensativity.

      Thurman has been out of football for two years, and they're implementing a new defense. He isn't showing up. I don't care why, or if he's really with his family grieving or not. He won't be able to make an impact this year, and maybe not next year, because of all the time he's missing. The Bengals are heartless to cut him, but it's the logical decision.

          Its harsh, his grandmother raised him, most people dont get over that in a week. Plus Thurman obviously had talent, the Bengals waited 2 years for him to get back from something stupid but they cant wait a month for him to get back from this? They should have given him some support, not fired him. Can you fire someone for missing voluntary OTA's?

            what i heard was that he wasn't there enough since april 21 when he was reinstated, so this last bit was just icing on the cake. teammates said his head just wasn't where it needed to be.

                  In the real world, a person generally gets 5 bereavement days for the death of a Parent, and 3 for a Grandparent. It's harsh, but they were within their rights to let him go.

                      He should sue the Bungles, but I hope for his sake he can latch onto another team. Teams would be crazy to not give him a look.

                        I just read GM Thomas Dimitroff wasn't interested in him.

                              He will find a team. He is a real good player.
