    Let's see, a recent Penn State football player is charged with murder. It's not even a large, or very surprising story. The theme, according to the press report, is that he was so torn up by failing to make the NFL, that he kills somebody.

    Carson Palmer is speaking out (again) about so many of his teammates being arrested:


    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/nfl/01/31/bc. fbn.superbowl.palmer.ap/index.html


    Jack Wilson, the Pirates starting shortstop, has publicly called out 2B Luis Castillo in recent days for being overweight, lazy and nonchalant last season. Maybe white athletes are finally getting fed up enough to begin speaking out. Let's hope it's the start of a trend.


    Also, while the Bengals are singled out for having so many affletes arrested, Chargers safety Terrence Kiel was just arrested for urinating in public, his second arrest in eight months (the first one was far more serious, five felony drug charges). That makes eight, count 'em, eight Chargers arrested just since April, just one behind the Bengals' torrid pace.

    You know its has become a very sad state-of-affairs, when there is a statistical category for who's team has the most arrests in a season. They might as well include the actual category for it on NFL.com, and create an award for whatever team has the most jailbird affletes on it. lol... I got it! The award will look like the Heismann, but with an old fashioned black and white prison outfit and a ball and chain.Ahahahhaa.

    But, in all seriousness, this time I DO blame the coaches. Because years ago, Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry wouldn't have stood for any of their players behaving like criminals. According to my father, these two coaches were the kind of strong White men that would pick up your equipment and throw it into the parking lot, if you didn't want to play by the rules. These men commanded respect, and players NEVER stepped out of line with them or disrespected them in any way. But today's coaches have NO balls. They're basically neutered, and recieve no respect from their players. Its a real crying shame what has happened to this league and the caliber of people in it.[​IMG]

    It is hard to believe than the only problem in the past was Paul Horning or Max Mcgee missing curfew.

    The delightful Marshawn Lynch, expected to be the second running back selected in this year's NFL Draft, has domestic violence charges against him dropped:


    http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/breaking_new s/16574906.htm





    A judge dismisses an assault charge against the oft-arrested "Pacman" Jones:


    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2750900





    And Chris Henry cops a plea and serves all of two days to settle one of his many arrests over the past year:


    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2744994


    Man, the justice system is so tough on blacks. It's obvious that we might as well still be living in the antebellum South the way blacks are picked on. No wonder they're so obsessed with race and think "the system" is out to get them.

    I blame law enforcement. It's plain to see they've been profiling NFL players.

    Back in 2000 I won the championship of the fantasy football league I've been part of for many years when on a very fluky play Jets FB Richie Anderson scored on a 40 yard reception, so this one hurts. [​IMG]
    <H1>Anderson arrested in police prostitution sting</H1>


    The Arizona Cardinals fired first-year wide receivers coach Richie Anderson on Monday evening, just four days after he was arrested for allegedly soliciting an undercover Phoenix police officer who was posing as a prostitute as part of a sting operation.


    Head coach Ken Whisenhunt announced the dismissal of Anderson, who was hired in late January, in a statement released by the team.


    "I wanted a chance to review the details of the situation before making any decision," Whisenhunt said. "While it's disappointing, I've decided that this is clearly in the best interest of our team in this particular instance. Our focus now is on finding a replacement and I am confident we will be able to do that relatively soon."


    Anderson, 35, was one of five men arrested last Thursday evening at the Pointe South Mountain Resort, the site of the sting operation. He was taken into custody without incident, police said, and held at the Fourth Avenue Jail for a short time before being released on bond.


    Police have not released any further details of the incident.


    Anderson played 13 seasons in the NFL as a fullback for the New York Jets (1993-2002) and the Dallas Cowboys (2003-05), appearing in 161 games. The former Penn State standout was one of the league's most accomplished receivers out of the backfield during his long NFL tenure.


    He caught 400 passes for 3,149 yards and 14 touchdowns and carried 318 times for 1,274 yards and four touchdowns. He holds the Jets' franchise record for most receptions by a back with 305. Anderson was chosen for the 2000 Pro Bowl game.


    In 2006, Anderson served as the Jets' assistant wide receivers and tight ends coach.

    Never let it be said that Pakis don't take their cricket seriously. From off the wire:


    Pakistan's cricket coach, Bob Woolmer, was strangled to death in his hotel room after the team's shocking World Cup loss to Ireland, police in Kingston, Jamaica said yesterday. Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious in his blood-and-vomit-splattered hotel room in Jamaica a day after his team's upset loss sealed Pakistan's ouster from the tournament. He was later declared dead at a hospital. Pakistan cricketers were fingerprinted and interviewed yesterday by police investigating Woolmer's death.

    CBS free-lancer on Masters arrested in bank robbery


    A freelance editor from Alabama who was hired by CBS to help cover the Masters golf tournament this week was one of three people arrested Monday and charged in a bank robbery, authorities said.


    A man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and an Atlanta Braves sun visor entered a Wachovia bank branch on Gordon Highway shortly after 9 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money, said Sgt. Richard Roundtree of the Richmond County Sheriff's Department.


    A red dye pack mixed in the money exploded in the parking lot, he said.


    After an anonymous tip, investigators arrested Michael Alan Crane, 31, at a nearby Holiday Inn and found clothing stained with red dye in his room, along with an undisclosed amount of money taken in the robbery, Roundtree said in a news release.


    Two alleged accomplices from the area, Jawone Reginald Bennett, 31, and Shelby Lee Wills, 28, were arrested a short time later at a lounge, he said. All three were charged with robbery by intimidation and held in the Richmond County Jail. . .

    Steve McNair was charged with a DUI even though he was only a passenger in his vehicle, which was being driven by his brother in law. It's possible they may have switched seats after the police lights went on, but still this is yet another stupid, totalitarian law, part of the ongoing "back door" attempt to bring back Prohibition.


    America's Greatest Living Leader was alsocharged with a DUI and gun possession in '03, but of course the charges were dismissed, by a "white skin privileged" judge.

    Caste System announcer Bill Maas busted on drugs and weapons charges. Maas was always one of the very worst broadcasters as far as religiously mocking the athleticism of whites and glorifying blacks. I don't know why, but former linemen seem to be among the worst offenders. I have no sympathy for this jagoff.

    Another charming afflete gets some hard time:


    A judge has denied a request by former Giants defensive end Jeremiah Parker to reduce his 10-year prison term for a child endangerment conviction.


    During the hearing Friday, state Superior Court Judge Randolph Subryan, who presided over Parker's trial, recounted details surrounding the death of Elijah Kelly, the 4-year-old son of Parker's ex-girlfriend, Tauleah Kelly.


    "For the last few weeks of his young life, Elijah Kelly was subjected to torturous beatings and assault at the hands of this defendant and Tauleah Kelly," Subryan said, in comments reported by The Record of Bergen County in Saturday newspapers. "I still get goose bumps when I think of how that young child suffered."

    Another despicable case of "student"-affletes doing their thing:


    Prosecutors call it rape at a drunken party which was caught on cell phone video. They have charged University of Minnesota cornerback Dominic Jones with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

    However, WCCO-TV has confirmed that another U of M football player who'd been kicked off the team actually organized the party.

    Robert McField had been convicted of two armed robberies but was somehow still living in campus housing the night of the attack. . .

    Bill Maas (posted above) is white and I'm not "shocked." If you check the Crimes and Buffoonery section you'll find equal opportunity articles when it comes to alleged perpetrators; it just happens blackathletesare involved far more often than white ones in crime, especially serious crime.


    Sinceyour main mission here thus faris to nitpick everyone's posts with a finetooth comb and publicly correct their occasional errors, just make sure all of your postsare factually perfect.

    I remember the Marichal-Roseboro incident well. It was very big news when it happened at the height of the NL pennant race in August 1965. Marichal was suspended for nine days and lost two pitching turns. As it turned out, the Giants finished two games behind the Dodgers.

    This isn't a crime but maybe it should be:
    <DIV =articleTitle>Travis Henry at ease with big fatherhood statistics
    <DIV =articleByline><A class=articleByline href="mailto:mklis@denverpost.com?subject=The Denver Post: Travis Henry at ease with big fatherhood statistics" target="_blank">By Mike Klis
    Denver Post Staff Writer</A>
    <DIV =articleDate>Article Last Updated:08/26/2007 06:56:42 PM MDT


    Broncos running back Travis Henry knows the sports world will not be able to resist having fun at his expense.
    <DIV =article>


    If Steve Garvey had to endure "he's not my Padre" teases for fathering two children out of wedlock with two women, then Henry can expect considerable sarcasm now that it has been revealed he has fathered nine children from nine women.


    "People can judge me all they want," Henry said as he watched his team warm up for its preseason game Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns at Invesco Field at Mile High. "But only God can judge me."


    Henry's personal life was recently revealed after he received a child-support judgment in a DeKalb County, Ga., court. It's not the first time a professional athlete has been involved in such controversy. Former NBA star Shawn Kemp has seven children with six women and Derrick Thomas, the late linebacker of the Kansas City Chiefs, had seven children with five women.


    Nine children with nine women is a new standard.


    "A lot of stuff that's been put out there isn't true, but I'm not going to get into that right now," Henry said. "The important thing is I want to take care of my kids really and truly. It's all good."


    Henry, out with a first-degree sprain in his left knee, is expected to start in the regular-season opener Sept. 9 against Buffalo, his former team.
