NC-11: Heath ShulerI mentioned some time ago that Heath Shuler (ex-Tennessee Volunteer and Washington Redskin QB and currently real estate guy) is running against the horrid Charlie Taylor for the 11th District congressional seat in NC (happens to be where my parents vote). A blogging buddy of mine sent me the link to StopShuler.com and it certainly didn't surprise me that such a thing already existed. But after reading it, it turns out that the site is run by a Deadskins fan who has a hate on for Shuler the QB, not Shuler the potential Congressman.
One thing we want to reiterate -- this has nothing to do with politics. This is about football, and the city of Washington. If he was running for governor, we wouldn't care -- he wouldn't be coming back to DC. We dread the day we're pounding a few at the Hawk & Dove and we run into him. We'd really prefer he stays where he is.
So they hate him because he sucked as a QB for the DC team and they don't want him back in town. Sheds a much different light on things, don't it?
