What a weird guy. See ya! :3w:

Why does that make him weird? He probably grew up without a mother father figure and his grandma is all he has.. aint no shame in that. some of us arent blessed with a luxury of always having your family around. Honestly he looked depressed that he was leaving as if he didnt wanna go. I mean if he was static to pack his bags and leave i doubt he would have asked who he got traded for? Im guessing he asked for the simple fact that he wanted to see what his value was to the dolphins. kudos for the way ireland handled it with him. vontae's voice seemed to crackle as he said he was gonna call his grandma.. sad day in dolphins history but we gotta move on now and hope theres brighter days coming for the miami dolphins

I have no ill will toward Vontae. He had been with the team for three years - he probably had settled down here, started a new life. If you were told you had to, essentially, move away from your home overnight, how would you react?

It makes him weird because as soon as Jeff told him he was being traded, his first reaction was to call his Grandma! Vontae was going to call her in Jeff Ireland's office! At least have a conversation with the guy about why you were traded before you do that. Can you imagine if Ireland had to sit there and listen to Vontae telling his grandma he is headed to Indy? THAT would have been great television.

You're missing the point

Not every millionaire is like Mitt Romney, without emotion or pause. Vontae was visibly shaken when Ireland told him. He probably wanted to get in contact with his grandma to let her know what's going on. She may be a parental figure in his life.

How many of you guys would like to hear someone tell you they are moving you to Indianapolis within the next few hours Basically out of no where. THe kid is 24 with a psycho hammer murdering brother and a Grandmother that is probably one of the only people who keeps him grounded.

You want to talk about a human with emotional feelings? How about Les Brown who worked his ass off WAY harder than Vontae. And he found out he was being CUT, not traded. He spoke with Ireland and told him that he wasn't going to give up and that we would see him again. All Vontae wanted to know was what we traded him for. Give me a break.

Well put. Sad that some people on this site find it so funny that he was scared and wanted to call his grandmother. Athletes might have more than we have in terms money and fame, but did others here ever figure you had things in your life that Vontae could never imagine.

Completely agree. His reaction was bizarre, as was his play on the field (the horrific penalty last game). Lets hope Ireland can do something with that early (hopefully) 2nd round pick next year.

He is obviously in shock, doesn't know what to do, and he just verbalizes the first thing that comes to his mind; he wants to call the person he is closest to in the world. And what do you clowns do? Make fun of the guy?

This is the first time I've ever even began to agree with the sentiment that Miami has the worst fans in professional sports. Now watching you douchebags make fun of a 24 year old kid for wanting to call his grandmother to help him process the fact that his entire is changing overnight has me realizing that maybe that wasn't too far off. 20 years of following this team, and this is the first time I'm ashamed to be a Dolphins fan, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the team itself.

Nubs, that's not rude. That's a confused kid not knowing what to do, and going straight to what he has probably done his entire life; call his grandma. I'd stake my entire education in psychology that it had nothing to do with being rude, and everything about instinctively doing what he has done his entire life...

Wasn't intentionally rude by Vontae, but that is the way it comes across. Perhaps it is just immaturity or not knowing how to deal with these kind of things, but in the business world that is not the way you do things. I understand the NFL isn't your typical business, but it is still a business. If Reggie Bush would get traded tomorrow, I doubt the first thing he would say in the meeting is that he needs to call his grandma. I think he would understand that you finish the meeting with Ireland, than call grandma once you leave his office.

Not a big deal though, I am not going to justify the trade by what he said in the meeting with Ireland, it just shows to me that the talk that he is immature is true.

Gentlemen, he's a kid. A kid whom we can assume from family history may not have had the opportunity for the best education regarding edicate in specific situations. A kid that got what probably is the most stunning news of his proffesional career.

It was blatantly obvious that the reaction was one of anxiety. He was uncomfortable, shocked, and his natural reaction was awkward, one of reaching for something that would better assist him to cope.

It would have not killed Ireland to let the kid make a call and let the situation settle, sink in before shuffling the youngster out of his office. i do not like the way Ireland handles people. He comes across completely artificial IMO. it wss nice to hear about his history. For someone who spent so much time around football players, Ireland seems as awkward as a stunned boy trying to call his grandma in the midst of stunning news when talking to them.

Hey, how about someone tells you that you need to leave your entire life behind and move somewhere else tomorrow. Nope, you get no time to wrap up any loose ends or say goodbye to anyone. You're leaving. Tomorrow. End of discussion. Imagine that for just one minute. Is it still hilarious?

Reggie Bush has experience in the field of trades.

Your point is absolutely ludicrous and appears to be guided by some sort of bias influencing your opinion. In no way, shape, or form did Vontae's actions come across as even remotely rude. it wasn't even somewhat implied. It could have been clear to a blind person, for Vontae's voice was just as awkward as his reaction.

Could it be deemed unproffesional? Sure. Were you ever fired when you were a kid? I was fired from AMC theatres when I was 16 and to have called me unproffesaional would have given me more credit than I deserved.

He reacted as a scared child who seemed to be vulerable and sincerely affected. He showed more humanity than most wanna-be tough guys and sports intellectuals in this forum have perhaps ever showed. And it wasn't funny or rude or entertaining. It was sad and embarrasing and uncomfortable and everything any human being would not wish upon any other for the mere sake of ****s and giggles.

Interesting perspective. Im going to have to watch it again because I saw it as he didn't care.

Edit: rewatched the trade. Still think vontae came off as he didn't care. Had my wife watch it and she thought the same.

I swear some of you are much more childish mentally than what you claim Vontae to be.

24 is not a kid? Where did you grow up, Russia? It's a new world, guy. With the technology, kids do not have to grow up as fast as they used to. So unless you joined the service, had to help pa plow the field to make ends meat, or were arranged in marriage to royalty- 24 is still very much a kid.

Don't try to spin this as an age thing. Vontae is definitely extremely immature and childlike for a 24 year old. He clearly has issues that are not normal.

Some of you are garbage. This thread is shocking. The kid has spent his entire career as a Dolphin, he's devastated to find out he's been traded from them and this is how you react? I am a very different fan than some of you and I'm happy for that. Just a new low.

Wow. You may want to schedule an appointment with a therapist. i am not trying to disrespect or insult you. If you interpreted the look on Vontae's face as he didn't care, you might have some personal stuff to work out. I am not even trying to be funny right now.

Stay away from poker tables, though. (okay, had to try and add a little levity because sheesh)

Vontae had that deer in the headlights look. I mean come on guys, he hears trade rumors circulating then to be called in and the rumors are confirmed to b true. the kid is a bit immature but he wasn't rude. He seemed shocked and nervous. I believe Vontae is a good kid, great athlete that just needs to grow up. Maybe these lessons will help him out. Sad to watch tho. One of our own leaving on these terms

Not that it really matters (it definitely doesn't), but I for one a devastated by this trade. Vontae was one of my favorite players, and I hate that this coaching regime and Ireland think these guys are this easily disposable. If Smith resorts to soft tackling and Marshall shows he isnt a starting corner, then what? The way things have gone I can see us drafting a cornerback in the first round next year. It's ridiculous

Nothing to do with being "too sensitive." it's a tad childish to call someone a "weirdo" because they want to tell the closest family member they have, that they've been traded. A lot of A-holes on this board, if you ask me

The problem with people is that they NEVER stop to think how they would feel if it was them. 'Oh big deal, he's a millionaire', he'll get over it and **** a hot chick'. Yeah, well he's still a human being with human emotions and feelings. It would suck to have to receive news like that, I don't care who you are. That's the biggest problem with most people- they're so quick to judge others without stopping to think how THEY would react in a similar situation. And that's why people ****ing blow.

Did you see the look on Jeff's face when he said we traded Vontae for two pick!?! I need to fly down to Miami for Minnesota and give Jeff a good whooping! Vontae show us fins fans how humble of a person he was by shaking Jeff's hand and patting him on the back before he left!

I can't wait until Vontae and the Colts play us this year and he shuts us down

it definetly looked as if he didn't want to leave. His world was rocked for sure. For him though, it may be a blessing in disguise. The colts will turn their team around long before we do. Hard for him to see it now but I bet soon enough he won't still wish he was here.

i think most of the people laughing and criticizing probably havent seen half the **** in their lives that Vontae has seen. Right off the bat, he was raised by his grandma which means he has no conventional family structure. He is probably closer to his grandma than he is to anyone. Is it really such a big surprise that when he receives some of the most shocking and life altering news of his life, he tries to call her? God damn.

Vontae was rude when after Ireland said he was traded that the first thing he said was that he needed to gall his grandma and pulled the phone out of his pocket. Come on, what professional pulls out their phone to call a family member during an important one on one meeting? The rumors that Vontae is immature appears to be accurate.

probably as professional as asking Dez bryant if his mother was a prostitute.

I agree...im sure the people laughing and criticising have never heard, or been put in a position that can alter your life in a second. yea he has millions, and is a football player, but still human. going to a place, city that you have no clue about is not a easy task and his grandma is probably the only one he feels he can trust you help him through it. If he was a ***hole and idiot like you all are makeing him out to be...he would have called his brother (vernon) and say " dawg guess what, im off this sinking ship "

Speechless. Absolute new low for this board. Short of injury or being straight cut, he just got the worst news he could get as a professional athlete. He is obviously in shock, doesn't know what to do, and he just verbalizes the first thing that comes to his mind; he wants to call the person he is closest to in the world. And what do you clowns do? Make fun of the guy?

This is the first time I've ever even began to agree with the sentiment that Miami has the worst fans in professional sports. Now watching you douchebags make fun of a 24 year old kid for wanting to call his grandmother to help him process the fact that his entire is changing overnight has me realizing that maybe that wasn't too far off. 20 years of following this team, and this is the first time I'm ashamed to be a Dolphins fan, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the team itself. For ****s sake...

This ****ty thread should have been closed after this post. Excellent Locke.

The sad part is watching people who literally have no clue what hardships Vontae has been through his life process his reaction like that is an indication of his intelligence. The man's brother is in jail for murder and now his whole life and surroundings are being changed and he's going to the person that raised him for direction and guidance. I just can't see the humility in that.

Maybe because my mom was allowed to go to LA and Vegas when she was younger and I was literally raised by my grandma, in a house of 10 cousins, brothers and sisters. Personally, I have a combination of 3 brothers and sisters and my 2 brothers are in prison while my sister has been out of prison for almost a decade. My grandma has passed on now, but when she was alive I went to her anytime I did anything . . . new female I'm talking to, new car, school grades . . . hell we even talked Dolphins football because she loved them . . .she is the one that always made things that seem wrong, logical and right and that kind of love and understanding is something 99% of the posters on this board clearly will never understand.

Wasn't intentionally rude by Vontae, but that is the way it comes across. Perhaps it is just immaturity or not knowing how to deal with these kind of things, but in the business world that is not the way you do things. I understand the NFL isn't your typical business, but it is still a business. If Reggie Bush would get traded tomorrow, I doubt the first thing he would say in the meeting is that he needs to call his grandma. I think he would understand that you finish the meeting with Ireland, than call grandma once you leave his office.

Not a big deal though, I am not going to justify the trade by what he said in the meeting with Ireland, it just shows to me that the talk that he is immature is true.

This. If you're called into the General Manager's office and he tells you that you have to go to Indy to work in the Indy office of whatever business you are in, you don't immediately reach in your pocket and call anyone, you finish the conversation - collect all the details and then you make all the calls you need when the meeting is done. Vontae is immature..not bad. I wish him well and suspect he will grow up (as everyone does) and do just fine for the Colts.

Reguarless of what he wanted to do at the time he was told by Ireland, Everyone of you who bashed him should be ashamed. He's still a kid and most likely a mama's boy and thats his deal dont bash him for being young.If you all got fired today and didnt expect it youd be devistated. He gave his fair share to us and thats all we can ask for. Good luck in Indy and i hope you prove us wrong.

yes you are right...your first reaction should not be to reach for a phone...but do you do the right thing everytime it happens the first time? Immature??? maybe he is, but not in this situation...he was just in shock and did what any human would do when you get bad news...you reach out to get comfort or guidence. just funny how people can call a person immature but not be in thats person shoes. Immatureity is watching a show, and judging a man without knowing his feelings.

Just by his tone you could tell he was completely sincere and not trying to be rude. The kid is 24 yrs old with likely no family in Miami. I think the first reaction of many people would be to call the only family/support they have.

Here let me simplify it for you-------- when you are paid that kind of money there are expectations placed upon you, which is fair. He didn't live up to those expectations despite repeated warnings to get himself straightened out. Therefore you get called in to the office and told you are traded.
It's that simple.

My point isnt the trade. Trades happen. I know. The point is that its a tough thing for the player regardless of how much money they make. They are being uprooted and told to move on very short notice. Id imagine a lot of players have similar reactions of shock. And lets not act like he was some out of control cancer. Dude was immature at times here, but hes 24. Yes, he shouldnt have shown up for work hungover, but Ive done that. The trade is what it is, but Vontae seems like an OK guy and I think his reaction was probably a relatively common one.

This clip and the Ochocinco clip are surely painful to watch- I can agree with you on that one. It's hard to say if VD will flourish in the INdy system- he has had time here with us, and not much has changed. I don't dislike the guy, but on the other hand it's pretty awesome to see EXACTLY what goes on behind the scenes.

08-29-2012, 11:33 AM
We don't know his story. When you are a kid (albeit with a talent), you still react as a kid... This isn't like you and I getting a different job. He was told to call his new coach because they would want him on a plane right away... He won't get time to pack, find a house, or deal with a grandma he likely supports and might even live with him. For all we know, she could be highly dependent so the change of location on short notice may be VERY HARD to cope with.

The kid has huge talent, and may never realize it because he is not "worldly and mature".

I also wouldn't call someone a millionaire who is set for life based on 3 years of a late first round rookie contract. Guy will have made a few mill, but with family, housing, agents etc, he is not a Bill Gates, just a well to do guy that had his rug pulled out.

I wish we hadn't had to trade him, but either way I wish him nothing but the best. Good Kid, played hard, made some mistakes.

He just simply said he wanted to call grandma, then under his breath he uttered and my brother. He was obviously upset and felt that his family could help him, hell I was upset watching it and haven't been able to shake how upset he was. Seeing a young vulnerable man upset like that kinda makes me wish we didn't do hardknocks.
