    Tiki blacklisted?your thoughts?

    We're you as surprized as I was that noone even brought Tiki into camp and played him in preseason?His twin is still playing.He is a very low mileage 36 yo rb who retired at the top of his game.Yet,not one team even extended a no risk,high reward invite to camp to even see if he had anything to offer.Hey,he's persona non grata to every Giant fan,but what did other teams have to lose inviting him to camp?I'm sure he would've accepted the veteran minimum from anyone who would've given him a chance.Say what you will about Tiki,but he was a great RB who at 32 was among the best RB's in the NFL.To think that no NFL team took a no risk flier to possibly catch lightning in a bottle is shocking to me.Geez,think about it.Teams bring dozens of unknown FA's into camp.Noone even gave Tiki a looksee.Yeah,32 year old RB's are done at 36.But what if they didn't play for those 4 years.Seems worth a no cost look in camp for someone,huh?I guess he burnt all NFL bridges,not just the Giants bridge.Tiki,the evil twin.Put a fumanchu on him.

    Tiki is old, been out of the game for 5 years and has no heart for the game. He was looking for a payday.....nothing more. There are plenty of young RB looking for a team to give them a chance who are hungry.</P>


    Not surprised at all.</P>

    Am I surprised that people are STILL making Tiki threads 6 years after he retired? Yep.

    The term 'blacklisted' suggests that the Owners conspired to freeze him out of the league. If an Owner or GM had felt that Tiki, with his veteran salary requirements, would have given their team a better shot, someone would have made a move for him. His value was merely found to be lacking - nothing to see here.

    I dont think the mara's blackballed tiki.

    Tiki loved their father and played his heart out for him in the memorial game.

    If you remember Tiki was invited to the Ring of Honor.

    Harooni,don't get me wrong.Tiki was the best RB in Giants history and always played his heart out.It's how he left and what he's said since that I wonder about.Is he in the ring of honor?We usually have a halftime ceremony for that.I don't see that ever happening.

    Let me ask you guys this hypothetical.Assume 2 things.Tiki left under good terms like Strahan.And Bradshaw couldn't return after missing those games.Would you have had a problem if we brought Tiki in,considering he already knew the system?Just curious.

    If AB was out , yes Tiki would have been the best FA we could have pulled. even with the drama.

    the only issue would be TC .

    Plax, TO, Moss, hell even Jerry Rice had a better shot at getting picked up. </P>


    Tiki burned all his bridges and has no legs left. If he left and kept his mouth shut, Im sure he would of found something if he was back in shape.</P>
