Can't We Still Be Friends?

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Fri Aug 04, 2006 1:42 pm

Interesting, but non fantasy related story about Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas...

Can we still be friends?

Apparently so.

At least that was the word out of Miami Dolphins training camp when reporters asked if defensive end Jason Taylor and his soon to be ex-brother-in-law, linebacker Zach Thomas, can co-exist.

Thomas' sister, Katina, is divorcing Taylor, her husband since 2001.

``As far as the question about the locker room, to be quite frank, I think it's ridiculous to me that anyone would even think that,'' Jason Taylor said. ``We're professionals, guys.''

Coach Nick Saban said he isn't worried about the two veterans staying peaceful.

``The guys involved in this situation are as professional as you can get, in terms of how they represent this organization, in how they respect one another, in how they played together in the past and handled any circumstances they had to deal with any time in their career, including now,'' Saban said. ``I think they have a tremendous amount of respect for each other as professionals.''

Thomas knows first-hand the strains an NFL career can put on a relationship.

Hey, it's nothing like the situation that supposedly took place in New Orleans. Rumor was that Willie Roaf, while playing for the Saints, got Joe Horn's wife pregnant. 8-o

Hey, if they were going to fight over this it would've been when Taylor said "Hey Zach, I wanna take your sister out." I'm pretty sure judging from when they say his sister married Taylor that it was a clear violation of the male code of ethics, one punishable by severe beat down if not worse. Seeing how Thomas let that slide...
