    NFL (and NBA) misfits

    This is out of control.
    These athletes have no sense of the position they are in.
    Punishment for them would be to get a real job, not fine them or suspend them.

    Chris Henry suspended 2 games
    http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/CIN/9709627

    [size=6pt]CINCINNATI (Oct. 6, 2006) -- Bengals receiver Chris Henry received a two-game suspension from the NFL for violating its conduct and substance abuse policies, making him the second Cincinnati player suspended this season for misconduct.

    The second-year receiver also was fined $20,000 by the league. The Bengals have their bye this weekend, so Henry will sit out games against Tampa Bay and Carolina later this month. [/size]
    Stephen Jackson and the gang of Pacers?

    [size=6pt]INDIANAPOLIS -- Stephen Jackson of the Indiana Pacers fired a gun in the air, apparently in self-defense, outside a strip club early Friday after he was slugged in the mouth and struck by a car that sent him tumbling onto the hood, police said.[/size]
    BTW, Kenoy Kennedy, Lions D player, out for this weeks game, was picked up for DUI, I think last night.
    I can't find a story on it, but I saw it on ESPN.

    Heck, we have a KROB thread about DUI.

    We have a Albert Haynseworth head stomping thread.

    Can't forget these 2 boneheads also.

    Odell Thurman (Bengals)

    [size=8pt]Bengals | Thurman officially suspended by NFL for one year
    Wed, 27 Sep 2006 11:48:09 -0700

    The Cincinnati Bengals have announced LB Odell Thurman has been suspended by the NFL for violating the NFL Substance Abuse Policy. Thurman's current four-game suspension has been extended to a one-year suspension. Thurman can apply for reinstatement prior to next season.[/size]
    and

    Ricky Manning Jr (Bears former Panther)
    http://www.deadspin.com/sports/nfl/ricky-manning-jr-will-bludgeon-you-you-freaking-nerd-169113.php

    [size=8pt]
    May 2006
    Over the weekend, soon-to-be Chicago Bears cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. -- the Bears signed him just last week to an offer sheet the Panthers aren't likely to match -- was arrested shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday in Los Angeles and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

    What happened, exactly? According to police reports ... well, we'll just say we're glad we went to bed early Saturday night.



    According to [LAPD officers], Manning was in a group that attacked a man in a Denny's restaurant after teasing him for working on a laptop computer.



    "The group began by making comments that the victim looked like a geek or a nerd,' Lewis said.



    The victim asked the group to stop and then complained to a Denny's manager before someone in the group punched him in the face. He then was punched and kicked by multiple attackers until losing consciousness, Lewis said.[/size]

    might be tougher to find who aren't misfits in the NBA and NFL these days.
    "Johnson, we will keep on beating them until morale improves."
