    Yesterday on the pre-game show, Boomer Esiason told us that he has two sources that told him Chad Johnson took a swing at the head coach last week during halftime. Of course he had to follow up with how much he liked Chad Johnson and how big of a fan he is of Johnson.

    I heard the same thing.

    Not surprising since Chad Johnson admires T.O. At least Boomer said that he thought whatever happened between Lewis and Johnson contributed to the Bengals meltdown in the second half.

    I'm wondering if anything else will come out about the incident.

    Johnson also reportedly attacked the team's wide receivers coach before taking a swing at Marvin Lewis. But of course it was excused as black dysfunctional behavior always is: "That's just Chad being Chad." If it had been Kevin Walter swinging at Lewis (who has become St. Tony Dungy Lite) I don't think it would have been excused quite so easily: "Oh that Kevin, what will he do next," chuckle, chuckle.

    My local paper had an article about Sean "the spitter" Taylor the other day and the headline was "Taylor commits another gaffe". Yeah gaffe! A gaffe is a small mistake, were talking about a guy that has been busted for a felony among some other "gaffes"!!!

    from wikimedia:
    Taylor's short NFL career has been tarnished, however, by repeated run-ins with the law and controversy. He has fired two of his agents, walked out of a mandatory NFL rookie symposium for which he was fined, and was accused of spitting on a Cincinnati Bengals player, who later called Taylor "a punk," during a 2004 game at FedEx Field. However, after an investigation, the NFL found nothing to substantiate the spitting allegation.

    On October 27, 2004, Taylor was arrested at 2:45am for driving under the influence of alcohol following a birthday party for Redskins' receiver Rod Gardner,

    In May, 2005, Taylor, seeking a new contract with the Redskins, was the only Redskin who refused to appear for a Redskins' training mini-camp. Redskins coach Joe Gibbs acknowledged that the Redskins had had no contact with Taylor since he returned to Miami in January, 2005, and that he had failed to return repeated phone calls to him by Gibbs and other Redskins' coaching staff. Despite his legal and other difficulties, though, Gibbs has defended the drafting of Taylor, calling the preparation that went into his selection one of the "most researched things in the history of sports."

    Taylor's agent is fellow University of Miami alumnus Drew Rosenhaus, widely considered one of the most aggressive agents currently representing NFL players.

    June 4, 2005: Arrested for armed assault in Miami
    Events:

    On June 3, 2005, Taylor was named publicly as a "person of interest" by Miami-Dade County police in regard to a Miami assault case involving firearms, and was being sought for questioning. "We need to speak to him, we don't know if he's a victim, witness or suspect," Miami-Dade police spokesman Mary Walters said. Taylor allegedly was present at, and possibly involved in, an incident on June 1, 2005 in Miami, in which bullets allegedly were fired into a stolen vehicle.
    As of June 4, 2005, Taylor was still missing and had reportedly been sought by police for over 72-hours. Miami-Dade County police were expected to issue a warrant for his arrest.

    On June 5, Miami-Dade police issued a statement indicating that Taylor had been arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm (a felony) and battery (a misdemeanor), for allegedly pointing a gun at a person over a dispute over two ATVs that Taylor claimed were stolen. Taylor then allegedly left the scene, but returned shortly and punched one person.
    The Associated Press reported on June 5 that Taylor was held in detention at Miami's Turner Gilford Knight correctional facility and released the evening of June 4 after posting bond of $16,500. The Miami-Dade County Clerk's Office announced that Taylor would soon be officially arraigned on the charges.

    The Washington Post reported on June 5 that Taylor's arraignment on the charges has been scheduled for June 24, 2005 in Miami. In related developments, Redskins' coach Joe Gibbs announced that he was excusing Taylor from voluntary pre-season practices and a mandatory pre-season mini-camp with the Redskins so Taylor could focus on his legal issues.

    Taylor, along with fellow teammate Clinton Portis, were fined in a few games for violating the NFL dress code by wearing socks that did not match the Redskins' standard uniform.

    Taylor had a day of ups and downs during a January 7, 2006 Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although Taylor scored a touchdown that eventually proved the Redskins' margin of victory, he was not on the field for the end of the game. Taylor spit on Bucanneers' running back Michael Pittman following a play and was subsequently ejected from the game. He was subsequently fined $17,000, the same amount as his game check.

    Chad Johnson has surpassed his cousin Keyshawn as perhaps the most
    obnoxious player in the NFL. While not quite as overrated as Keyshawn
    (who has been the definition of a pedestrian, "possession" WR during
    his career), this guy is not in the same class with Moss, Harrison and
    Owens, although the media tries to pretend he is. As for Sean Taylor,
    he will now go on to receive the "celebrity special" under our vaunted
    system of injustice. Assuming he is found guilty of anything, his
    "sentence" will be community service and/or a suspended sentence, just
    like all celebrities.

    A Miami-Dade Circuit Judge postponed the upcoming trial of
    Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor, who is charged with aggravated
    assault and battery.




    The trial, originally set for Tuesday, has been rescheduled to March 20.



    Taylor, a former standout football player at the University of
    Miami, is accused of pointing a firearm at someone during a dispute
    last June over an allegedly stolen all-terrain vehicle.




    His attorney, Ed Carhart, filed a motion asking Circuit Judge Mary
    Barzee to postpone the trial for several reasons, including ''his
    presence is greatly desired, hopefully, for the next month'' by his
    employer, the Washington Redskins.




    The Redskins are set to play the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle on
    Saturday in a semifinal National Football Conference playoff game. If
    they win, the Redskins would advance to the conference championship. A
    win there would send Taylor and the rest of the Redskins to the Super
    Bowl on Feb. 5.





    Pathetic.
