Vince Young Has Been Temporarily Banned From Titans Facility
Yet another twist in the constantly turning Vince Young saga. Reports out of Nashville now indicate that when Young showed up at the Titans facility at Baptist Sports Park, he was asked to leave by a team official.
Via The Tennessean:
Young expressed frustration and was visibly upset, according to sources, but he eventually left without incident. Indications are Young showed up at the facility for team meetings and was told he wouldn’t be needed.
Sources said Young showed up for a team meeting and was told he wasn’t needed.
The source said he has not “necessarily been “banned” from the facility, and he could return at a later date.
Ug-ly. Young, who the Titans are expected to place on injured reserve at some point in the near future due to a thumb injury which requires surgery, appears to have finally worn out his welcome with the team, in light of his erratic behavior over the past two seasons, a troubling issue which was blown wide open after a run-in with head coach Jeff Fisher in the locker room after their game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Young reportedly got in a verbal altercation with Fisher and allegedly said, “I’m not running out on my teammates, I’m running out on you.’’
I don’t know, but to me that sounds a little bit too much like that pot-smoking kid in that 1980s PSA – you know the one, “I learned it from watching you, Dad!!!” Or maybe, just maybe, it’s more like the slacker character Doug from The State (“I’m outta heeeeeere.”) And if that’s the case, hoo boy, perhaps Young is in worse shape than originally suspected. I mean, who bases their actions on a character from a 1990s sketch comedy show? Although I suppose it would be a much more dire situation if instead of Doug, Young began imitating Louie from The State and started going around saying: “I’m going to dip my balls in it!” You know, with the whole drunken, shirtless thing and all. Not pretty.
