    This might be old news, but I thought the reason for Mattias Askew's arrest and subsequent hit with a taser was quite telling. From The Cincinnati Enquirer:

    Askew decides to pick up the latest gangsta rap CD, but there is no parking. What's a professional football player to do? "Well, park on the sidewalk muthaf***a! Sheeit, this ma Escalade biotch. Cain be parkin' dis sheeit on da street like some cracker. I plays FOOTBALL, man!"

    The police ask Mr. Askew to move his vehicle, but he continues to add to his collection of gangsta music. When the police inform him he is being ticketed, he decides its time to leave, but - no dice. The police will not let him leave now without his summons. So Mr. Askew gets out of the car, and assumes a 'fighting stance.' I don't think they mean the crane stance from the Karate Kid, but nevertheless, the police feel threatened and subdue the 6'5", 302 lb. Askew by taser.

    Of course, this is undoubtedly the fault of the police department, overzealous as they are about keeping vehicles off the sidewalks in Cincinnati. And of course, no one told Mr. Askew that he could not park on the sidewalk. Nor did the NFL or the Cincinnati Bengals offer any driving courses or lectures on responding to police requests. His university professors did not spend enough extra time after class with Mr. Askew, either, to ensure that he knew the ins and outs of civilized behavior off campus, as we all know that college life is nothing like real life.

    Mr. Askew will probably retain counsel and file a lawsuite against all of the aforementioned parties for lost wages and punitive damages, once he is inevitably cut from the Bengal's roster.

    Personally I think it's the stripes on the Bengals uniforms. [​IMG] If you dress like a criminal you act like a criminal. Which come to think of it may explain some of the more suspicious officiating.

    You just gotta love Mikey Holmgren, prolificpurger of white talent and proud Great White Father figure to numerous blacks. Holmgren publicly professed his love of Koren Robinson on previous occasions when Robinson was arrested and otherwise screwing up. Now here's what Holmgren has to say after Robinson's arrest yesterday: "When he was with us, I rooted for him. I tried to help him. I felt I kind of failed the kid somehow," Holmgren said. "He's got to get a grip on this before something bad happens."


    Apparently Holmgren doesn't consider driving drunk at 100 mph and fleeing police "something bad." And considering the daily blotter of black athletes raping, pillaging, and beating wives and girlfriends, maybe he has a point.


    Here's what Robinson's attorney has to say of his client: "Mr. Robinson is a fine individual," Tamborino said. "He takes these matters very seriously."


    Hell, then let him off. But how "seriously" was he taking it when he was "smiling" at reporters in the courtroom while shackled and in an orange prison jumpsuit? He probably figures he'll get off scot-free like almost all black athletes do when caught committing crimes.

    I have a friend who thinks that the white pro football players of the past were just as badly behaved as today's players. "They covered it up back then," he says. I reminded him of pro football players past and present accused of murder (Simpson, Carruth, Lewis). He hemmed and hawed, "Well, they just covered it up. Players are scrutinized so much now." My friend also thinks that hockey players are the "dumbest athletes in sports, and I knew white football players who were illiterate." He will not accept that black athletes behave worse than white athletes.

    With another arrest of Koren Robinson there is some doubt over whether he will be a Viking very long. The new coach is talking tough but lets see what he actually does. How bout replace Robinson with Ryan Hoag?

    Theismann and crew were kissing Robinson's ass big time on MNF the other night during the Vikings - Raiders game, praising him for taking responsibility for his alcoholism, being a stand up guy, a wonderful personality... Wonder what they'll say about him now at the next Viking's game now? Think he'll take a beating like Favre or Rush Limbaugh did for their addiction to pain killers?

    Just an FYI Ryan Hoag has a black parent. Lets go with Aaron Hosack or Kevin Kasper. Or both!

    Thanks for the info voice. I actually meant to say Hosack. I do remember a thread on hoag where that was discussed now that you point it out. Kasper would be awesome too.

    BTW, Koren Robinson should recieve a 1 year suspension for his third substance abuse violation, but I bet that he won't.Edited by: Kaptain Poop

    Hosack should already be an established starter in the NFL. Let's see if he makes the Vikings roster as a backup even if Robinson is suspended or waived.


    BTW, I don't believe in alcohol prohibition and therefore don't think Robinson should get a suspension for alcohol consumption. But receiving a suspension for driving drunk at over 100 (the police hit 120 and he left them in a cloud of dust) and fleeing police on top of his previous legal problems, that's a different story. If the league were truly concerned with doing what's right, assault, sex crimes and any felony offense ought to result in long suspensions and/or expulsions rather than smoking weed and drinking. But if the NFL suspended all its criminals only lowly whites would be left to man most positions and we certainly wouldn't want that to happen.

    10th Bengals player arrested

    June 18, 2007

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Running back Quincy Wilson was charged with disorderly conduct for failing to disperse after a weekend wedding party, making him the 10th Cincinnati Bengals player arrested in the past 14 months.

    The former West Virginia star was with a wedding party celebrating outside a downtown bar around 3 a.m. Sunday when he and 13 others refused a police request to leave, assistant prosecuting attorney Lora Maynard said Monday

    Some were charged with disorderly conduct, others with obstructing justice and underage drinking, police Lt. Hank Dial said.

    The running back was booked at a jail and released Sunday afternoon. He is scheduled to appear in Huntington Municipal Court on July 19.

    Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said it was inappropriate for the team to comment on Wilson's arrest because the matter is unresolved.

    Dial said police wanted to disperse the crowd because some shots had been fired about 30 minutes earlier a block from the bar. None of those arrested with Wilson were thought to be connected to the shooting, Dial said.

    Wilson is the 10th Bengals player arrested in the past 14 months, a streak of misconduct that drew the attention of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, resulted in three suspensions and made Cincinnati an example of players gone bad.

    Wilson is the third former West Virginia player in the NFL to get into trouble in recent years. Wilson was the Mountaineers' leading rusher his final season.

    Atlanta drafted the running back in the seventh round in 2004. The Bengals signed him off the Falcons' practice squad later that year, and he spent the next year on Cincinnati's practice squad.

    Wilson got into three games last season, carrying two times for 2 yards in an Oct. 1 loss to New England. He was waived on Oct. 19 and signed back onto the practice squad.

    Wilson, who lives in Weirton, was a teammate of receiver Chris Henry, a Bengals player who has been arrested four times. Goodell suspended Henry for two games last season for misconduct, and has suspended him for the first eight games of the 2007 season for his most recent convictions.

    Another former West Virginia player, Titans cornerback Pacman Jones, has been suspended for the entire 2007 season. Jones was being sought by police as a witness in a shooting early Monday involving members of his entourage after a fight at an Atlanta strip club.

    Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman was suspended last season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He has yet to be reinstated.

    Last month, linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge in northern Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. The Bengals released him three days later

    With Wilson gone, things should like brighter for Dan Burks. Maybe Ryan Englebert will be signed back as well. Any news on Englebert? I heard he had a good showing for the Bengals, but perhaps he's gone into the white back abyss like many before him.

    From the Bengals website:
    http://www.bengals.com/team/player.asp?player_id=161

    Finished career as school's No. 2 all-time rusher with 2,277 yards ... best single-season effort came in his sophomore year when he gained 880 yards and earned third-team all-conference honors ... after coming on scene in 2002, he was hampered by injuries in 2003 and was redshirted ... played in only three games in 2003 before shoulder injury ended his season prematurely ... had a career rushing average of 4.7 yards per carry ... had 35 career receptions to rank No. 6 among UAB running backs all-time ... a hard-nosed runner.

    They just HAD to add that at the end didn't they? If he's a white back, what else could he be other than hard-nosed?

    A Kentucky woman has accused Bengals LB Ahmad Brooks of punching her in the face. Yet another charmer on Team Affletes.


    Despite all the questions about the team's "character" problems, it appears Marvin Lewis just can't help himself. Cincy drafted three more "character problem" players last week. Then again, given the rigid racial rulesof the Caste System, it's difficultfor a team to have a draft with nocriminals and quasi-criminals.

    "A Kentucky woman has accused Bengals LB Ahmad Brooks of punching her in the face. Yet another charmer on Team Affletes."

    Hahahaha, charmer. Honestly, what the hell? I'd say this stupid woman didnt "deserve it," but these morons chicks are just as moronic as their male counterparts. The Bengals are becoming as bad as the Raiders and Cowboys in terms of thug-recruiting.

    To put things in perspective.....David Pollack literally broke his neck for this f*cking team of stupid ******** like Ahmad Brooks and the like. A good and decent man like David will never play another down in the NFL....all while Brooks will probably just get 20 more chances to succeed and start over more deserving white players (they just released Anthony Schelgel).

    This league (and country) is way too f*cked up to continue caring.
