What do you think?
In Lavar's mind he will always have 6.5 million reasons to hate on the Skins.
All Malcolm is upset about is that the team said he was healthy enough to play and he felt that he wasn't.
The interview is up on BRBN for those who want to hear it, its under CBS Wash - (audio) Malcolm Kelly Discusses Shanahan

RIP Bubba, you are missed (gone three years March 16th)
What could possibly be the "real" reason. If he could play, he'd have been playing. If he's not healthy enough to play, then he deserved to finally get cut. Now, last year I believe the team mishandled the situation, which basically cost him the season. But that's got nothing to do with this year.

I am really sorry we had to part with the Comb.
"The exact term for Kelly’s release is “waived injured.” Under collective bargaining agreement rules, Kelly — as a player released while injured — would be added to an injured reserve list if he clears waivers, as expected. Once Kelly is physically sound in the judgement of team physicians, he would be released."
In Malcolm's case, I think the team believes his sore foot will be good enough to obtain another job in a week or less, where-in an injury settlement might cost more than just holding onto him until he says "I'm good".
Normally, I believe a team reaches an injury settlement and THEN waives the player. In Malcolm's case, the injury may not have been large enough (or diagnosable enough) to be considered for a settlement, and they might just be willing to wait and see if: 1. The doctors can figure out what the **** is going on, or 2. Kelly ever gets better, though if he continues to say "my foot is sore", and they can't find any proof that his foot is injured in any way after running an enormous amount of neurological tests (since the physical testing hasn't shown any results) then it will turn into a legal issue and it could drag on longer.
I doubt it does, but if Malcolm continues to say he's hurt and the doctors can't find any reason for it (not to say either group is wrong or right), then that will probably be the road. And the injury settlement will be based on someone finding out what's going on with his "sore foot".
That's my best guess.
Man, some of ya'll are real sweethearts. People get hit with uncontrollable, unwanted health or medical issues all the time... even professional athletes. His body hasn't been durable enough. That's all. Some of you make it sound as though he's asked for this. Now if it comes out that he self-inflicted a Nancy Kerrigan, I'll change my tune. But that seems pretty damn silly.
A close friend of mine was fairly recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis... Guess I should berate her and constantly point out how completely useless she is? Oh, you fell down the stairs again? Idiot. Jeez, what a ****ing stupid ***** for having it.
Hmmm.... I'll wait and see what he "reveals in a few days" before I go too hard on him. Who knows, he may be waiting for test results/ second opinion on some degenerative bone disease.
I would presume its what Chris Russell from the other radio station, 980, says like a broken record about Kelly which is he's furious that they stashed him on injured reserved last year, and Kelly thinks its wasn't right considering he was healthy from about game 3 on. So I'd guess its a combination of Kelly thinking they didn't properly go by the spirit of rules with how the injured reserved system should work -- meaning its not supposed to be used as a way to stash players away -- and Kelly could have shown the NFL he could play last year, etc.
