    3. Nothing illegal can be proved.
    1) You don't think he's a "diva"?
    2) Nothing...As long as it's not the week of a playoff game. So do you think that ODB did everything he could prepare for for that game?
    3) True but the optics certainly look bad.

    Again, I am not a hater, and I do think overall the cancer talk is way overblown. Just saying that I can see why some fans are turned off.

The team's comments still actually stand.....no one is untradeable on a 3-13 squad. The media ran with their "interpretation" of that saying the Giants are seeking to trade him....THEN stuffed words in OBJ's mouth on top it saying he would no show for OTA's. This was 100% media driven.....lunacy to think otherwise.

      Again media driven BS.....sadly there will be more to come once they near actually hitting the field.
      That's not the point. The Giants can do whatever they want. I was just pointing out that this particular item was not the typical blind source, speculative news articles. It was driven by actual comments by the team. They knew what they were doing...The team wanted everyone to think there was some uncertainty.

        It served their purposes not to, and perhaps served their purposes well, contrary to popular opinion. He showed ip, and that's all that really matters for the time being. Oh, and he's still on the roster.

            Not the week of a playoff game?? So it would have been better for him to stay home?? What if Odell did everything he could to prepare for that game but just stunk it up?? It happens bro.

            Let me ask you a question.....did Eli do everything he could to prepare for his 1st playoff game against the Panthers in 05??

              The whole purpose of this post from the OP was to heat things back up again. This Odell obsession is really disgusting. Oh my goodness, he had a bad playoff game. No other Giant has ever done such a thing. Trade him, immediately.

                Lmfao! I know right? That game was two seasons ago and some are still dwelling on it.

                  I grew up on a lake and had a boat, parents still do. We used to go out in that boat all the time, sometimes even the day before we had work or school!!! Luckily my parents employer never found out about this, could imagine the punishment wed face at work for sitting on a boat the night before work?

                  My god, the fact that some of you still think that was an issue is unbelievable.

                    Its crazy isnt it?? On his day off which was 6 freaking days from the playoff game. Now because he was on the boat trip......he apparently wasn'tfully prepared for the game. Very comical I tell ya.

                      1) What says Odell is a "diva"???

                      2) Honestly, i dont know what Beckham did to prepare, but the loss wasnt soley on him

                          Let me be clear...I think Odel is great and I am hoping the Giants find away to keep him long term...Also, I agree that he's really done nothing to show that he's bad for a team or is a cancer. My main point is that he's certainly done some things that warrant concern and that I hope he changes...However-

                          1) I guess we can agree to disagree here. A diva is someone who is temperamental and/or hard to please...You don't think his antics are being a diva?
                          2) I don't know either, but taking a trip to Miami certainly could not of helped. Do you think any of his teammates were watching extra film that day? Do you think they were running light drills to keep them sharp?
                          3) That's the entire point of the word Optics...I am saying that he may not have done anything wrong, but posting that pic certainly does not make him look in a positive manor.

                            Good post.

                            I guess i stray from using the word Diva if the player is loved by teammates and doesnt cause the team to suffer. Yes, he has alot of antics, but i dont know if i would call him a diva

                            As for the boat trip, sure i would have LOVED it if our whole team hunkered down and locked themselves in the film room for 12hrs in preparation, but it was their day off and while i cant fault them for doing what they want on their day off, id rather they didnt do the boat trip

                              Because he went on a boat trip on his day off?? Ok gotcha. At the end of the day it is ONLY YOUR OPINION,..so i will leave it at that.
