Default Faneca a no-show at Steelers practice

Faneca a no-show at Steelers practice
Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers guard Alan Faneca did not show up today for the first of 14 voluntary workout session scheduled for the next few weeks.

Faneca, unhappy with his contract, lashed out at Steelers management at the opening of the team's mandatory mini-camp May 12, then sat out the next day's morning practice. He participated in two more practice sessions.

Before flying home to Louisiana, he said he would not return until training camp starts July 23 -- if he's still a Steeler then. He has asked to be traded.

The practices now under way at the Steelers' South Side facility are officially termed organized team activities. Unlike minicamp, however, those are not mandatory and players cannot be disciplined if they do not attend.

Has anyone looked behind any of the buildings because I'm sure Alan is behind one of them doing this Sigh I guess 4 million dollars just isn't enough for him.

He said he wouldn't attend,so as far as I am concerned,this is a non-story.

ya know the guy who was made the highest paid player at his position during his last contract extention, you would think he'd show a little more class than this

he's just bitching because the linemen that were sign this FA yr like leonard davis and other decent money got paid like they are actually good... it did help when teams over over pay players

It's a free country. I'd be ticked if I was making 40k/yr & someone who I was better than was making 70k/yr. I realize we're talking millions but whether a million a year is enough or ten million is that persons decision. Anyway, the good news is if he doesn't shut up & play, it could seriously affect his contract next year. I think when the time comes he will fall in line & play like the pro bowler he is.

By acting like a little boy stomping his feet in defiance, the only one he is hurting is himself.

Not surprised. I hope somebody took the liberty of changing his diaper on the flight back to Louisiana.
