That was the running back for Cincinatti. His name was Stanley _________? and was found in a closet with a crack pipe the night before or morning of the super bowl some years back.

It was also Barret Robbins for the Raiders prior to the Tampa Bay game.

Just not a crack pipe. Mexican drinking binge?

It would be interesting to find out if Robbins ever did anything about his disease since he disappeared right before the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.

From the stories I remember, he forgot to take his medicine. When you do that, the symptoms can come on pretty quickly. He was seen in a bar the night before drunk off his tail and crying uncontrollably.

If anybody remember Justin Strzelczyk from the Pittsburgh Steelers back in the mid-90s, ESPN just did a story on him. Apparently he was suffering from the same symptoms of bipolar. Ended up driving himself into a tanker truck at 90 MPH.

I wouldn't wish this disease on anybody.

Sad .. the downward spiral continues for Robbins.

"Former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins was charged Wednesday with three counts of attempted felony murder...."
