Lawerence Tynes Sues Bucs

Former Bucs kicker Lawrence Tynes, who has not played in the NFL since he contracted a MRSA infection with the Bucs in the preseason of 2013, has filed a lawsuit against the team, claiming he lost in excess of $20-million in "expected future earnings."

Tynes' lawsuit, filed Monday in Broward County Circuit Court, claims that "unsanitary conditions" at the Bucs' facility constituted negligence on the team's part, and that the team "failed to disclose and actively concealed ongoing incidents of infection" among other people at the facility. Tynes was paid his full salary of $905,000 by the Bucs in 2013 after the team placed him on the "non-football injury" list.

Tynes' lawsuit alleges that former Bucs trainer Todd Toriscelli had a MRSA infection before Tynes did and "admitted to close friends" that his own infection was the source of Tynes, having used the same hot and cold tubs and other therapy devices and equipment. Tynes' infection came on the great toe of his kicking foot, which became "red and swollen with puss oozing out." Nearly two years later, the lawsuit claims he has suffered "permanent damage" and is unable to play professional football as a result.

The Bucs declined to comment Monday afternoon, citing a team policy of not commenting on pending litigation matters. The NFLPA did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment, though a grievance had been filed by Tynes after his infection in 2013.


In excess of $20 Million in expected future earnings? Really?

Well, that helps to explain that situation.

So it was Toriscelli? That's how Nicks and Tynes got it? Wasn't there a DB or WR who also got it?

If true, that's pretty bad. He was with the team for 17 years, IIRC.

Just another line on the ledger about how poorly this organization is run.

Thia guy is the biggest douche bag on planet Earth , and his wife is a vindictive whore, rooting against the Bucs pubically on twitter. The MRSA probably came from her vagina. Stop blaming the Bucs for your shitty failed career.

Piss off Tynes Family.

I don't care, if he's ever been right about one thing in his life it's the comment about Tynes and his wife.

How can you be the Director of Sports Medicine / Head Athletic Trainer and show up for work with MRSA, then proceed to use the same tubs and facilities as the professional sports team you are employed by?

Nobody around the league is looking at this the way Bucs fans are, firmly entrenched on the team's side.

If true, it's a joke that players would ever want to join this organization as free agents.

...Well it's the Bucs who have a punter on a 6 year 19.5 million dollar contract and they just agreed to pay a safety 4 million dollars to play for another team.

If I went to work one day and caught a disease, because of conditions at that business, that ended my career where I had the potential to earn millions, yeah I'd be suing for every penny I could get. And I hope my husband would have my back against the business that ruined my career. He waited his whole life probably to play in the NFL and through no fault of his own cannot fulfilled his dream or support his family. I hope the Bucs settle this suit in a way that is exceedingly fair to Tynes.

This.

If it's true that our training staff was working with MRSA and spread it then the guy is going to rightfully get paid. This is an embarrassment to OBP if true.

Not to mention that this crap cost up a pro bowl guard in Carl Nicks.

It will be very easy to prove....if it is true....the Glazers are fucked

If not (that it came from the trainer)

I hope the trainer he accused sues Tynes for every penny he has

Seconded.

I don't understand why people are attacking Tynes. None of us know what actually happened inside One Buc Place. If the allegations are true, then the Bucs ruined this man's ability to provide for his family. He deserves to be compensated for that. If it's not true, then sure, take him to task...but don't condemn the man just because he feels wronged by the sports team that you love. You don't have to defend your team to support them. They have high priced lawyers to do exactly that.

LOLz. Sounds like I'm still in someone's dome after all this time. To set the record straight , I left "larryland?" because it is completely dead. No one posts there , it's boring.


As for Pewter Report , Mark Cook has gone to banning anyone who is telling the truth about their hack journalism . Lot's of people have been complaining about how far downhill the site has gone , and rather than fix or even consider the criticism, Cook has gone the Vladimir Putin route and decided to silence anyone who dare speak out against Mother Pewter. It surprised everyone because anyone who's posted there knows that board is basically anarchy - no moderation - and then suddenly Mark starts flailing away like a 13 year old girl on her 1st period when the jokes turned his way . That's why lots of us have been showing up recently. Good times.
