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
[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]
[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]
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.

Ricky Manning Jr (Bears former Panther)
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."
