Jim McMahon: Bill Belichick’s a “lying piece of sh-t”

“After training camp [Belichick] called me in and says, ‘Hey we’re gonna have to release you. We’ve got a lot of guys hurt. We need some roster spots,'” McMahon said on 850 ESPN Cleveland. “Then he said, ‘Hey no. But we really want you, we need you here.’ I said what are you telling me, Bill? He goes, ‘I want you to move here.’ If I’m gonna be here. I move my family here. They’re gonna be here for six months with me. I gotta find a hockey team for my sons. They were big into hockey at the time. So don’t screw me around. And he said ‘We’re gonna take care of you. . . . We’ll pay you to sit out.’

If true, that alone reflects a violation of the rules. Obviously, a non-player can’t be paid by a team to be available to the team whenever the team wants to sign him.

“So I called my attorney and said, ‘Can I trust this guy, he said they’re gonna pay me to sit out? He said it’s probably only gonna be one or two weeks.’ So I ended up finding a house . . . to rent, found a hockey team for my sons. So I called in the first week on a Friday to get my check and get the runaround. I’m thinking first week jitters. The second week I called in for my check, got the runaround again. I sat here for seven weeks doing nothing in Cleveland. . . . They finally signed me back Week Seven or Eight.

“I dressed three games — the eight, nine and ten weeks — and I got those checks. I confronted the G.M. at the time, what the hell was his name, Lombardi? He’s coming down the hallway and I said, ‘Hey man, I need my money. My wife was just in a wreck and I don’t want to deal with insurance.’ He looks at me and says, ‘Well, maybe we’ll pay you, maybe we wont.’ And I lost it. I just snapped. I grabbed him by the neck and threw his head against the wall and said, ‘You’re gonna pay me my money.” Then I started realizing what I was doing and I’m looking around the hallway to see if there were any cameras. I stopped hitting him and he slid down the wall.”

“I walked into the training room and called my attorney and said, ‘Hey get me cut right now.’ He called me back within two minutes and said they’ll release you if that’s what you want. So I had just walked out of the QB meeting to go to the rest room and all this had just happened in ten minutes. So I walk back into the QB meeting — it was Vinny Testaverde, myself and Eric Zeier and just said ‘Hey boys, I’ll see you all later. I’m outta here’ The coach said, ‘Have you talked Bill?’ I said, “You can tell Bill to kiss my ass. He’s a lying piece of shit.’ Then I was gone. The very next day I was up in Green Bay.”

I'm not surprised by the story. I am surprised we don't hear about this more often. Belicheat and from other teams.

As I (and others) have said before, winning gets bad behavior ignored.
It doesn’t surprise me at all.
What I wish was, to be there when he slammed the creep against the wall. I would have loved to see the look on the GMs face, as he got the snot knocked out of him!😁

One side of a self serving story.
Another guy out of the limelight trying to stay relevant.
At the very least, if true, he and his agent were complicit.
Naturally, McMahon has no recorded phone calls or documentation to prove the allegation.
I am skeptical...nor would I put it past Belichick.

Any story told from more than five years ago must be taken with a grain of salt. And when the story is decades ago, and from someone who says he suffers from concussions/CTE, you have to take it with a larger grain of salt.

Jim McMahon routinely has to one-up the aura of "Jim McMahon".

That aside, I wouldn't be surprised at all if teams ask players to hang around and assure them they will be signed at a later date. If you ain't cheating you ain't tryin'!! lol
