Good. One less dangerous receiver for the Steelers to have to contend with in their march toward their 6th superbowl victory this upcoming season.

"His conduct can no longer be tolerated."

- Bengals President Mike Brown

So, that means it was being tolerated the first four times?

It appears so since they did not take action the first four times. Anything else we can clear up for you today?

I think this report is about the actual NFL, not your fantasy league!

Re: Bengals players dont get arrested - 04/03/08 05:59 PM

This was the right decision.

As for being tolerated the first four times?

This time appears to be moderately serious, being an assault charge.

The time previous was, heaven forbid, an expired tag for his vehicle. That's a horrible offense, isn't it?

The time prior to that was an assault and theft charge that was later proven to be a scheme by someone who wanted a payday by blackmailing him.

Most of what he has been accused of has been minor. Unfortunately, it's gone too far, and he's a blight on the city, the team, and the NFL as a whole because he can't stay where he won't get in trouble. He puts himself in situations that whether he does something wrong or not, end up putting him in the paper for issues.

Quote:
Henry was arrested four times between December 2005 and June 2006, for possession of marijuana in northern Kentucky, carrying a concealed weapon in Florida, drunken driving in Ohio and providing alcohol to minors in northern Kentucky. In that case, he served two days in jail in 2006 after pleading guilty to a charge of letting minors drink alcohol in a hotel room he had rented.



yeah, but he was only convicted once...the Bengals don't have problems, we all know it...

I really like this quote:

Quote:
The Bengals tried for an extended period of time to support Chris and his potentially bright career,” Brown said. “We had hoped to guide him toward an appropriate standard of personal responsibility that this community would support and that would allow him to play in the NFL. ... But those efforts end today, as we move on with what is best for our team.”


so, 4 must be the internally set limit...someone should notify you know who...

Sure, since you've got the time - Maybe why some posters deny that the Bengals were, in fact, tolerating malevolent behavior, and, while you're at it, why you felt the need to take such a tone. Thanks!

Yes, by not taking action, do you mean the 8 game suspension, or the sitting on the bench for a game for a speeding ticket? He's been disciplined.

Marijuana possession and providing alcohol to minors - no big deal so long as you play for a team that BF supports.

But if you are not a Bengal, well then watch out.

Please, take a look at the number of players on the Bengals with "malevolent" behavior vs. other teams. That's what I've been saying for a long time. I'm not excusing Chris Henry. On the other hand, what about other teams?

Giants Antonio Pierce - Animal Cruelty

Steelers Cedrick Wilson - Assault
Steelers James Harrison - Assualt and Criminal Mischief

Texans Jacoby Jones - DUI
Texans Jerome Mathis - Choking his pregnant girlfrield

Titans Lendale White - Destruction of Property, resisting arrest
Titans Pacman Jones - Need I say more?

Panthers Dwayne Jarrett - DUI

Broncos Marcus Thomas - Felony Cocaine Possession
Broncos Andre Hall - gasp, not an expired license!

Vikings Bryant McKinnie - Aggravated Battery, Resisting Arrest

Patriots Kevin Faulk - Possession
Patriots Willie Andrews - Possession with intent to distribute

Raiders Fabian Washington - Domestic Violence

Eagles Mike Patterson - Possession

Bills Roscoe Parrish - DUI

Bengals Chris Henry - Assault, and an expired license

That's for the months of February and March of 2008.

Nope, it's typical for the Bengals, and the rest of the NFL.

And before we put the blame on the NFL, let's look at other sports. The NBA, for example. Wasn't long ago that we had serious issues there either. Oh wait, let's look at the NHL where fighting is expected. If you look at any professional sport you have these very same issues.

Once again, NO, they do not lead the league. New England and Tennessee lead the league, but they talk about the Bengals because of Chris Henry alone.

I invite you to feel free to show any evidence that the Bengals lead the league in anything.
Posted By: straw

Re: Bengals players dont get arrested - 04/03/08 06:22 PM

No, they talk about the Bengals because of the rampant nature of the issues on the Bengals.

And if you supported a different team, you would say the same thing.

And I will say you are correct, you support a team that doesn't lead the league in anything, especially wins, titles, championships, pro bowls, hall of famers.

Should I go on?

Re: Bengals players dont get arrested - 04/03/08 06:23 PM

Straw, once again, please show me PROOF of your accusations. I've listed the police blotter for the NFL to show who's getting in trouble. Where's your proof?

PS: I take it back, the Broncos actually lead the league this year in arrests.

How about the NFL implement a harsher punishment policy? Since these "role models" think they are gods.

Well, I must admit I do owe BF a major apology. I was completely incorrect in saying that the Bengals lead the league in arrests.

I found this link that compiled NFL player arrests from 2000-2007.

http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/nfl...CPIorderby=Date

The link shows BF is correct. League leader in arrests during this decade are the Vikings at 28. Next is the Bengals, with 27, which includes today's arrest.

So I extend an apology to BF for casting aspersions on his beloved franchise. They are actually only the second worst group of thugs in the league.

Dear Jay,

If your posts were more memorable, perhaps I'd remember my response to them. At any rate, the only person who could consider themselves a recipient of any tone from me in my original post was a Bengals' official - if you're related, my apologies.

Sincerely,

Jokerman

Now go through that list and recalculate your numbers counting the number of problem individuals. Nearly a quarter of your counts all fall on one individual on the Bengals, who was cut today after being given chance after chance to avoid trouble.

I'm not making excuses. I'm trying to point out the same falacy as always. Because of ONE player, the Bengals franchise looks worse than the rest of the NFL. Your spreadsheet supports that even while you're trying to make it do the opposite. Plus you neglected to remove people who were acquited of the offense they were charge with as well, and that's not even including those where the charges were simply dropped.

PS: You're also saying they did nothing about these "thugs", yet....

Tremain Mack - Cut by team.
Deltha O'Neal - Suspended
AJ Nicholson - Cut by team
Chris Henry - Cut by team
Odell Thurman - 2 year suspension
Neil Rackers - let go at the end of the season.
Vaughn Booker - cut as soon as he was off IR (you can't cut someone on IR)

OK I see bf. So we are the ones who decide what constitutes the actual arrest. Dont forget that the Vikings had about ten arrests all relating to the boating incident. So, if you take that off, the Bangels are #1.

How many INDIVIDUALS were arrested, Harry?

Re: Bengals players dont get arrested - 04/03/08 08:03 PM

So, what I see here is that the Cincinati Bangels would be a much more effective team if they did not have to cut half their players for misconduct. Perhaps the GM needs to review his decisions toward if he should extend a contract to someone or not.

In which incident. The Vikings or the Bengals? I am not sure what you are asking. Sorry.

Re: Bengals players dont get arrested - 04/03/08 08:05 PM

You invited me to show evidence that the Bengals lead the league in anything. I have provided evidence that they are one arrest short of leading the league.

You can put whatever qualifiers and explanations on the evidence you would like, but the evidence speaks for itself.

what you fail to recognize is the thread is called bengals Players don't get arrested. Doesn't talk about convictions, or the number of players arrested multiple times, or the result of any arrest, or anything else. Simply about number of times a player was arrested. Unwad your panties and get over it. You don't own the team, and it really has no bearing on anything that really matters in the world. (And in case you haven't figured it out, even though Straw spelled it out for you, most of us are doing this because you get so riled about it...it's actually funny)
