Winning isn't everything?
Ex-Patriot and current San Francisco 49er Cassius Marsh is tired of suppressing his feelings towards his former employers. Marsh, who was claimed off waivers last season and subsequently signed to a $7.7 million extension, spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle about the love and loyalty he feels for his current team. Cassius Marsh forcibly asked coach Bill Belichick to hand him his papers, after growing tired of being played out of position as coverage linebacker (as opposed to a defensive lineman).
"I confronted (Belichick) about all the things that were going on," Marsh told the Chronicle. "I won't get into detail, but it was B.S. things they were doing. I just wasn't a fan. And so I, basically, without asking to get cut, I kind of asked to get cut. ... I had confidence that I would have an opportunity elsewhere and I would take advantage of it."
Marsh was so unhappy under the Belichick regime that began to question his desire to even play football. "They don't have fun there. There's nothing fun about it. There's nothing happy about it," explained Marsh, about the misperception of how the Pats do business. Marsh hopes his message will get through to stubborn Patriots fans who refuse to acknowledge the negative aspects of their favorite team's culture.
