The Bengals? Trust they would be first in line to lose any picks, they just recently resigned Chris Henry and Cedric Benson as well as everyone else in the past few years, nobody is going to get punished before them.

THANK GOD

Edit: Playfulness that turned into a brief scuffle, huh? I can see this cover up story was really well thought out.

In the last two season no Bengals player has been involved in any incident that has resulted in a conviction. There has been 4 incidents involving players, and 3 of the 4 players no longer play for Cincinnati (Chris Henry being the only player here).

As far as Benson goes, well, the grand jury failed to indict Benson on both arrests. This is a pretty clear statement of innocence and the NFL said they won't discipline him.

Many teams have been far worse than the Bengals as of recent. I'm not saying we are the most clean team, far from it. But I doubt we get arbitrarily punished first.

according to the police spokesperson on irvin's radio show:

2. fight was broken up before police got there
3. alcohol was involved, but not to the point of intoxication

This is one of the most pathetic attempts to make a story out of nothing that I have ever seen. If anyone is interested, this unofficial team blog, which is very good and objective almost to a fault at times, had this commentary on the situation:

Quote:
So Adam Jones had a fight with his bodyguard.

Sure.

So the local scribes are climbing over each other to see which can be more sanctimonious and sanctimonious first.

Whatever.

Life goes on. If it’s with Adam Jones, so be it. If it’s without him, so be it.

He’s been a steady cornerback, but life will go on. Terence Newman will return at some point this year. Orlando Scandrick has looked good. Mike Jenkins has taken his lumps but is on a rookie learning curve. They have a good secondary coach. The Cowboys will endure.

Somebody, likely the Pac, passed gas in the theater. It’s unpleasant, but ignore the idiots yelling “fire!” in your face. Resist the call to stampede. The smell will fade, and so, eventually, will the idiocy and mock outrage.

I’m just tired of the encompassing phoniness. We saw it in ‘06 when T.O. took the wrong supplements and spent a couple of hours in an altered state on his couch. His publicist had to milk it for her fifteen minutes, stepping in it so badly that T.O. had to take over her P.R. duties, which he did spectacularly, dousing a blowup with the Dallas P.D. that Simple Kim was intent on lighting.

And then there’s the Dallas P.D.

They must give leaking lessons with the basic training there. Nobody was arrested, but every last detail that can be dribbled out has been dribbled out. No charges will be filed, but Department sources will do their damnedest to make sure Jones is tried in the court of public opinion.

And, of course, the usual suspects in the Metroplex punditocracy, who no doubt have the squeakiest of clean pasts, deign to lecture the Cowboys and the rest of us on morals, ethics and public decorum.

Yawn.

Let me point out something to the younger, and perhaps the older hands here. When I lived in Wisconsin back in the mid-’90s, at the height of the Cowboys/Packers/49ers rivalries, no writer, not even one of the Packer-covering locals, was more popular among the Cheeseheads than Randy Galloway. Every time the Cowboys would trip up, or a player would do something stupid, he’d hammer out something venenous and predictable, in his inimitable one-sentence-per-paragraph sarcasm, and the national press would eat it up.

I had Packer-backer friends who loved to wave his screeds at me, saying “Randy Galloway is my favorite writer.” He and the Dales and Eds aren’t popular because they’re offering you any great insight as to why the team wins or loses. They’re popular because they’re useful idiots, whom the rest of the Cowboys-hating world runs to at moments like this because they’ll fling poo at Valley Ranch on cue.

Look at the headline on Pro Football Talk right now. It’s Mike Florio’s breathless “Randy Agrees With Me” pile on. This is exhibit A that men love melodrama just as much as women. The only difference is the type of romance novels we read. The ladies like theirs with busty, bodice-ripped damsels and ab-ripped heroes. The most inclined among us men folk love ours in column length, with musky, hypertrophied jock protagonists, who drive fast cars, date faster women and thumb their noses at the Commissioner.

This grocery store tabloid has too many fourth-rate divas, and a threadbare plot. It’s more like the typical four minute Saturday Night Live skit that’s being dragged out to 100 minutes for the multiplexes. And the principals are trying to convince us we should pay $8.50 to sit through this turkey.

I give it two thumbs down.

Now, back to the Cardinals. There’s an actual interesting football game coming up in three days.

That, my friends, is the real entertainment.

I thought that summed it up nicely.

Of course anything that this idiot does is going to get blown up by the media, especially after his ridiculous history and him now playing for the Cowboys of all teams. Come on, this can't be surprising in the least. Other than it took until Week 6, I guess.

Wade Phillips is melting at his presser now, wow.

Hey, you reap what you sow.

Vela and Villaronga are back? I missed them so much. The DMN blog is garbage and also "Bloggin' the boys" has been bad recently.

The subject at hand is punishing teams who sign troubled players, and you guys just signed Benson and Henry when at the time your team would probably be leading the pack in terms of players who have continually gotten in trouble with the law over the past 3 years...My point was that Cincy would be well in line to get something handed down before anyone else, I don't know why your surprised, when the GM continually drafts bad character players and continues to sign them thats the downside of it.

It isn't about signing troubled players, but it is about knowing the risk of troubled players, signing them and then they get into trouble. I agree that if Benson or Henry do some crazy stuff again, then the Bengals should get in trouble. At the moment, they haven't done anything since being signed. The same can be said possibly for the Vikings if Jared Allen ends up getting another DUI. Goodell is not punishing teams for the act of signing the players, but for the act of teams knowing the risks of signing the players and then those players screw up after they are signed.

Since he is no longer part of the Titans organization, I could care less what mess Pacman Jones brings upon himself. He obviously can't stay out of trouble, and doesn't understand the consequences of his actions.

But in all seriousness, this will never end.
