Robinson shows up drunk to serve his DUI conviction. Three days after pleading guilty to a DUI charge, former Seattle Seahawks receiver Koren Robinson was in jail Thursday for allegedly violating a court order to abstain from alcohol.

Kirkland Police accused Robinson of being intoxicated when he showed up Wednesday morning to serve a one-day jail term on the DUI conviction.

I think we're beyond stupid here TEXANS84. I think we've gone to the point of Robinson being genuinely ill. I'd bet the farm that he's a full blown alcoholic who's going to eventually be attending AA meetings for the rest of his life.

The only question here is how ugly are things going to get between right now and the day he figures it out.

I can almost guarantee that he'll either get a 30+ day jail term or be sent to a mandatory drug acohol treatment program for the same amount.

If soap is anything like footballs, and if he does go to jail, he'd better lose that case of the dropsies he's had throughout his career.

Seriously though, obviously this guy needs to dry out. If that's not a cry for help, I don't know what is.

When I read this article, what I feared was reality. He really is on my fantasy football team....thank god he's riding the bench though. Anyone that wants to trade a decent cigar or perhaps a budweiser select for this roster scab, you know where to find me.

This is what I get for forgetting the draft date.

SOOOO TRUE!! Maybe Miami! Look what dumb-a Ricky Wms did, and Miami is still chomping at the bits to get him back.

Or the Raiders. It seems like they always have to have guys with problems on their team.

Make that a case of MGD and I'll take him off of your hands. Just make sure that the case of MGD is iced down when you bring it though.

Man I know he's bad right now but I don't think I should be giving away beer to get rid of him. I'm not the Houston Rockets.

Robinson hoping to play in 2005

Finally realizing he has a problem with alcohol, former Seahawks wide receiver Koren Robinson has checked himself into a 30-day treatment center in South Carolina and plans to be ready for the NFL regular season as a new person.

"I've realized I've got a problem," Robinson said. "I know the path I was going down wouldn't enable me to be a successful person in life and a successful football player on the field. I had to be proactive before I got too bad."

Robinson's career and life have been spiraling out of control for the past eight months. Because of his drinking, he missed meetings late in the 2004 season and had to make a promise to seek alcohol treatment to stay on the active roster. That didn't work. Robinson finished the season on the active roster but was charged with a DUI on May 6 in Kirkland, Wa.

After pleading guilty, he ended up receiving a 365-day jail sentence in which 364 days were suspended. When he showed up for his one-day jail sentence, alcohol was allegedly detected on his breath by two detectives, a violation of his probation from the plea bargain.

That incident was the final straw. Robinson had been in denial about his problems. Last week, he checked himself in a rehab center.

"I will get out at the end of August," Robinson said. "I just know I had a problem. I was in denial for a while. Stuff had to happen to me for me to realize it before anything bad happened. I'm not ashamed of what I've done. I'm thankful it wasn't worse. But I have to put this problem in the past."
