Good. Should be an open and shut case:

Browns: We suspended him because we didn't like him speaking up and shaming the organization.

NFLPA: You already brought shame to the organization by knowing about Kellen's condition and then trying to cover it up.

Grimace (Crennell): I concur.

Arbitrator: Case dismissed. Kellen can play this week.

Grimace: All right! Now where's the buffet?

I'm not buying the he's a victim garbage.

When he was playing Evil Kinevil in the parking lot of Cuyahoga Community College and wrecked his bike, tearing up his knee....the Browns could have easily cut him without paying him anything. They could have withheld the $4M roster bonus he was due later that year. Instead they kept him, paid him to rehab, and paid him that roster bonus.

To play devil's advocate (and being in the military, there is a certain amount of "organizatinal thinking" to take into consideration.)

He wants the players to know what happened, he could pick up a cell phone, type out an email, go to their houses. Any number of ways of communicating to the players.

What he didn't have to do was talk to a reporter about it and make it seem like using the media was the only way to ensure that all of his fellow teammates knew he had Staph.

While I don't know what the FO was thinking, I'm pretty sure that they didn't want the media to know about this (for obvious reasons.)

We'll be lucky to bring in any halfway decent FA's next year, keep any halfway decent ones next year, etc...

Scouts better get the next few drafts right, because that's likely the only way we'll get players in town until this Staph crap goes away.

So what exactly does that have to do with this? They covered up his illness to the team, the fans, and the media. What exactly did Kellen do wrong?

While it's not wrong for him to disclose his illness, the presentation of it was.

He tried to make it look like it was the entire FO's fault for nobody knowing what was going on. Why did he wait until now to say what he said? What was to keep him from making a statement (through his agent) that was strictly to the point.

Kellen Winslow has contracted another Staph infection.

Unless you believe that he was forced to hold his silence by the FO. I somehow doubt they had him bound and gagged for this entire time frame.

Keeping quiet is not covering anything up. It's just not shedding light on things. Covering up would be falsifying medical documents, lying to the media, fans, playerst...etc...
