According to the article from the Post Gazette, Faneca has voiced his displeasure with his contract negotiations, coaching changes, and the way they have handled other veteran players (Porter). He asked to be traded but his requests seem to have fallen on deaf ears. From the tone of the article it seems like we would have a better chance of the Pope playing left guard for us next year than Alan Faneca! I respect the guy and I wish him all the best but from the team standpoint, an unhappy and disgruntled player can be like a cancer thats eats at the team from within. Let him go (by trade of course)or pay him! Article is on the home page.
