And the Negrodian Award Goes To...

Last Thursday the San Diego Chargers traded 25-year-old (keep this in mind) Antonio Cromartie to the New York Jets. Last weekend it was revealed that the Jets advanced Antonio $500,000 of his $1.7 million 2010 salary (keep this in mind, too) to help him catch up on his child support payments.

During a conference call with reporters on Friday, Antonio said this: "I have seven kids that live in five different states. I made some wrong decisions in my first two years in the league. Now I have to take on the responsibility of being a father to my kids. I can separate my personal life and off-the-field issues from football ... The mothers [and I] try to work out a schedule where I can see my kids. I talk to them on iChat and Skype. We try to find different ways for me to be in their lives, no matter how it is.''

What?!? Seriously. WTF?!?

Sidebar: His seven kids are with six different women! It's also interesting to note: His five-year contract with the Chargers was for $5 million. Don't look at us, we don't know what the eff he was doing with his money, either.

I'm glad he is taking responsibility for his chldren, but this kid is 25 years and already has 7 children by six different women. SMH.

The very next thing he should do is get a vasectomy and ask God for a miracle to keep him healthy and free of injury so he can play until he's 50.
