    Palmer: Arrests have got to stop.


    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/nfl/01/31/bc.fbn.superbowl.palmer.ap/index.html

    "I don't know if I got angry," Palmer said. "I got more and more frustrated. When something happens once, you hope that a slap on the wrist will take care of it and things would resolve themselves. ... We're professionals. We're all supposed to be professionals and handle ourselves like professionals. That didn't always happen with our team."
    Understatement of the year.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    To bad that Palmer has to go through that all the time.. He is a class act player, and he plays with a bunch of delinquents that get arrested all the time, and make a bad name for the orginization..

    It is sad that the Bengals have to go through this crap. They are making moves on the playing surface trying to turn around the franchise and some bums come along and mess things up. I feel bad for players like Palmer and Johnson,as well as the other players on the team following the rules and acting mature.

    CHAD QUESTIONED IN MURDER INVESTIGATION
    pft.com

    Various published reports indicate that Bengals receiver Chad Johnson has been questioned by police in connection with a recent murder in Miami.

    The story was broken by the Miami Herald on Thursday night.


    The victim, Curtis Tavares Dopson, was shot and killed last Friday.
    He has twice been convicted of felonies relating to the sale of cocaine and marijuana, and Johnson reportedly knew Dopson from "around the neighborhood."

    The specific reason for the meeting between police and Johnson was not known.

    Said Miami Detective Delrish Moss:
    'In any investigation of this magnitude, you have to talk to everybody, no matter how seemingly insignificant they may or may not be.'

    But Johnson tells the Cincinnati Post that he has no useful knowledge.
    "I don't know anything about [the murder]," Johnson said.
    "I know of him because that's my area, that's where I grew up.
    I got the call [from the police] and I rushed down there and talked to them."

    The Bengals also have released a statement on the matter:
    "Chad has confirmed to the Club that he cooperated with the Miami Police earlier this week as part of an investigation.
    Police have characterized this as a routine procedure and have stressed that Chad is not a suspect or even a person of interest in this case."

    (Apparently, the team's policy not to comment on pending legal matters is more flexible than it would appear.)

    Our take?
    Wait and see.
    Though we've got no reason to believe that Johnson is under any type of scrutiny, we really don't expect anyone to say so at this early stage of the situation.

    Chad Johnson - questioned earlier in the week about a homicide - is not a suspect, person of interest or witness in the fatal shooting of a childhood acquaintance.
    ??? Then why even question him?

    To find out more about the victim.

    They probably asked Chad questions about the victims friends, who he hung out with, if Chad knew if he was still dealing drugs or did he know if anybody was after him.

    The more the investigators can find out about the victim gives them a better chance to find a lead that might lead them to the killer.

    Because he was spotted doing the river dance where the victim was last seen.

    If that were the case, wouldn't he have been considered a "person of interest", which he was not?

    No a person of interest is somebody they would expect had direct involvement or knowledge of the murder.


    Like I said they interview acquaintances and family of victims to find out more about the victim and to possible give them leads to other people.
