    Re: K-Rob Going To Jail

    does this mean the nfl will FINALLY suspend him? BJ Sams got caught for a DUI like 2 days ago, and the league is ready to hand him a 4 game suspension..with koren he can do it months earlier and eventually get suspended down the road

    i dont get it though, he was sentenced to 5 years in prison a year ago, but the sentence was suspended as long as he stayed out of trouble..he gets in trouble again after making the pro bowl, and only gets 90 days, this is one of the most rediculous examples of the way the justice system works
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    During the Packer/Eagle game the announcers said that alcohol is not on the list of substance abuse items, but what he did was broke his rehab/counseling agreement. So a year suspension is incoming. They also said the fact that he hasn't been suspended yet was probably due to an appeal.

    So if your guy you mentioned didn't appeal then there you go. Thank the Union. Don't expect fast results.

    I'm sure someone named Bubba will give it to him the way he did the Vikes.
    If I were Koren, I'd probably have killed myself by now.
    What a pathetic human.

    I hope he gets a long suspension from the NFL and an additional jail sentence for the pooh he pulled in Minnesota.

    Plus, I hope he gets taught a few lessons behind bars.

    F!!ck Koren.
    Wow. That's pretty harsh. I mean, I know he screwed us over, but it's just football and he's a person too. Sheesh!
    It's not like I'm not losing sleep over it or anything, but I do think the guy needs the book thrown at him in every way possible before he kills someone the next time he drives like a drunken maniac on the streets of whatevertown USA. Watching him walk out of that Minnesota courthouse with a smirk on his face was just too much. I know he needs to reach his own rock bottom before he can turn his life around and all of that, but from what I can gather, he obviously hasn't hit his bottom yet. I'm just wishing him a speedy descent.
    - I hear ya on that one. Watching the monday night game & seeing him on the sidelines laughing & having a good ol' time. Even though prison is looming, seems like he doesn't care.

    If that was the average Joe, they'd be reporting for jail within 30 days.

    GB will milk him for the rest of the season, unless the NFL suspends him.

    Why hasn't Koren been suspended for a year?


    Odell Thurman was suspended for a year within a week of his DUI arrest, and Koren has also had a 4 game suspension and he has had numerous run-ins with the law, and his latest DUI arrest and fleeing police at over 100 Miles an hour is cause enough to suspend him.

    So is the NFL playing favorites?
    Because he now plays with Favre and Green Bay desperately needs help are they giving him preferential treatment because they want Favre to end his career on a good note?
    Good question whack!

    I thought I heard that it is also based on something to do with folowing through with treatment options.
    Who knows?
    Maybe if he is going to meetings but had a relapse, they cut him some slack.
    Also, did Odell have more than just the DUIs on his record.
    Didn't he have some violence or was that another thug on the Bengals that I am thinking of?

    About the timing of his sentence, I can see why they let him.
    Normal guy has 40 hr/wk job.
    He can go anytime, sooner the better..
    Krobs job is seasonal, he needs to feed his family ("the sprewell take").
    Oh come on!
    Give me a break... shouldn't be special treatment.
    How much does the "normal guy who has a 40 hr/wk job" make?
    He got his million for signing with the Vikes (did he have to /give that back?)
    and got paid for a few games-- these guys make a ton of money and if they can't live off of that that's just too bad.
    If he's so worried about "feeding his family" he should have thought about that the first, second or third time...
    if it was a priority he wouldn't have been so reckless.
    Should make it hurt and make him serve it now...
    what "normal" person would get to choose when they serve?
    He did the crime- the punishment shouldn't be an option in any way!
    Letting him choose just sends the wrong message....

    Nothing is ever going to change unless some commissioner gets the balls and just doen't let someone play.
    These Athletes are rich spoiled brats and seems to be above the law.

    Barry Bonds....still playing
    Ricky Williams....got to go play in Canada
    Terrel Owens...should either be not playing or dead.
    the list will keep getting bigger unless they are started being treated like the rest of us.

    Out of this world. I know a few people who would have liked to put off their DUI punishment for 5 months

    [size=10pt]Released receiver wants his salary[/size]

    http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/sports/football/15690553.htm

    Former Vikings receiver Koren Robinson has filed a grievance against the team seeking a significant portion of the three-year, $12.7 million contract he signed in March.

    Attorney David Cornwell of DNK Cornwell said he and the NFL Players Association filed the non-injury grievance last week and are awaiting a response from the NFL.

    Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, the NFL has seven days from the date the grievance was filed to respond.

    An NFL spokesman declined comment, but an NFLPA spokesman confirmed the grievance was filed Sept. 27. If the rules stipulate seven business days, the NFL's response should come today.

    "There are a collection of reasons," Cornwell said when asked why Robinson filed the grievance. "But the thrust of it was, his release was a punitive act, undertaken in violation of the collective bargaining agreement. The team punished him by waiving him for his arrest, and Koren's conduct is subject to discipline, if appropriate, under the NFL's personal conduct penalty.

    "So the Vikings invaded the exclusive jurisdiction of the commissioner."

    A Vikings spokesman declined comment.

    In early March, Robinson signed a unique three-year, $12.7 million contract. Robinson received an immediate $1 million roster bonus, as well as a $100,000 workout bonus. Then, in addition to his $600,000 base salary, Robinson could earn an additional $81,250 for every game he was on the roster, even if he was injured.

    The Vikings structured Robinson's deal to protect themselves given his previous track record with substance abuse-related incidents and suspensions.

    Robinson was arrested Aug. 15 after a high-speed car chase that ended near the Minnesota State University Mankato campus, where the team holds training camp, and he was charged the next day with a felony count of fleeing a police officer, two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree driving while impaired, and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, careless driving and driving after his North Carolina license was suspended.

    The Vikings released him 11 days later.

    Cornwell said the Vikings cited two reasons in the notice of termination: "In the judgment of the club, your skill or performance has been unsatisfactory as compared with that of other players competing for positions on the club's roster." And, "You have engaged in personal conduct which, in the reasonable judgment of the club, adversely affects or reflects on the club."

    "We believe it's a difficult decision to justify even on skill and conduct, based on comments the club made on Koren's significance to the team," Cornwell said. "Our view is, they simply were punishing him."

    Cornwell would not comment on how much of the remaining $11.6 million Robinson is seeking.

    But when asked if Robinson was seeking a significant portion, Cornwell said, "Yes."

    He declined further comment.

    Cornwell said if they cannot meet and resolve the matter with the NFL, then an arbitrator will make a decision. Given the timing of the grievance, the matter might not be resolved until the spring.

    The Vikings might have a tough time proving the first part of that notice, especially since he made the pro bowl last year. I don't even know why they included that in their notice. He would have been our number 1 receiver.

    The second portion is where they should have him & it should carry a lot of weight in the courtroom. It certainly reflected poorly on the Vikings image, but so has all the other scandals of the past few years & most of those players are still on the team.

    But then again, that clause was more than likely not in their contract.

    Look like K-Rob will be around this season afterall unless the team or NFL inflict more damages.
    He doesn't have to start serving until Feb. 28.
    Plenty of time to get geared up and mentally prepared for some brown-eye action.
    Also, plenty of time for him to get into more trouble.
