    NFL Reinstates Koren Robinson

    NFL REINSTATES KOREN ROBINSON
    by Michael David Smith

    Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that the NFL has reinstated Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson.

    Robinson, who was given a one-year suspension in 2006 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, can begin practicing with the team immediately.

    The incident that led to last year's suspension took place in August of 2006 while Robinson played for the Vikings. Robinson led police on a high-speed chase, and when he was apprehended, his blood-alcohol content was found to be above the legal limit.

    The Vikings cut Robinson after that incident. He then signed a two-year contract with the Packers and played four games for Green Bay before he was suspended.

    Robinson is the first player to be reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after such a lengthy ban. Goodell has said suspended players need to earn their way back into the league by showing they've taken proactive steps toward turning their lives around. Robinson evidently has done enough to convince Goodell to give him another chance.

    I wonder how long he'll last this time.

    Boooo.
    The first decision by Goodell that I am disappointed in.
    Robinson has shown nothing except that he knows how to fall off the wagon.
    I suspect that he pulled the wool over Goodell's eyes, just like he did with the people of Minnesota.

    He might not even make it to the next GB/Minny game.

    Stay sober and good luck, Koren.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I wonder what shape he is in or how long it will take him to get in a real game. I know Farve wants him bad. He is a great receiver and could make Green Bay even more dangerous. This is not good.

    I hope for his (and the Packers') sake that he does stay sober. If he does, then the NFL should watch out - IF he's still in game shape.

    Although I don't think the NFL is rigged like some do, I do believe that certain things happen, or are allowed to happen to ensure a certain amount of interest is in play to keep the dollars rolling in.

    In this case, I believe the league would do anything in its power to ensure that Favreeeeee makes it to the playoffs.

    Pitiful my friends, just pitiful. >
