    Koren Robinson suspended for 1 year

    According to ESPNews.

    Kind of makes me happy but its sad that he's throwns his life away.


    There's the article.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson was suspended without pay Tuesday for a minimum of one year for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

    The league's action came hours after Robinson pleaded not guilty to charges of drunken driving and fleeing police stemming from a high-speed chase in August.

    Robinson was taken into custody earlier Tuesday because of a warrant in Blue Earth County for a previous traffic violation. He was released a short time later, after his attorney went to a bank to withdraw $1,000 to post bond.

    The more serious charges came when Robinson was with the Minnesota Vikings. His car topped 100 mph as police chased him from St. Peter to the Vikings' training camp headquarters in Mankato on Aug. 15. Police say Robinson's blood-alcohol content was 0.11 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08.

    The Vikings cut Robinson, and he signed with the Packers in September.

    This month, Robinson was sentenced to three months in jail for violating probation on a separate drunken-driving case in Kirkland, Wash., last year. He plans to serve that sentence after the season.

    Robinson already had been suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy in 2004.

    St. Peter is about 57 miles southwest of Minneapolis, and about 10 miles north of Mankato.

    Probaly needs to spend time off the field. He screwed the Vikings but I hope he gets the help he needs.

    It's about frickin time that the league stepped in and suspended him!

    No doubt.
    At least the Packers locked him into a contract before he was suspended.
    Now, maybe he can join Chmura and have a little sideline fun in the Klink too.

    Sad that he threw his life away... but I am glad the NFL didn't waste any time suspending him once he plead guilty.

    Finally.

    I have no sympathy for Koren. He brought this all on himself. He is getting what he deserves. Maybe after the one year suspension and then the jail sentence he will truly get the help he needs. Maybe.

    He plead not guilty, but since he is a previous drug policy violator they can suspend him and I figured they would have done it a lot earlier than they did.

    Don't forget he should get prison time added on to that.

    It is too bad, but hard to have empathy- he's done it to himself. Glad to see him not benefiting further by being allowed to play out the season in Green Bay. I also think it's funny that they signed him knowing what a mess he's made of things...
