JaNourmos Russell, a damn shame! He can clearly say goodbye to a second change at least for the 2010 season. Best move the Raiders did this offseason was releasing this fool

Clear as day, I felt myself urinating into my pants while chatting in my chair. I popped up and said... holy shit! I just pissed my pants! I immediately flung my pants and boxers off then sit right back down as if nothing happened and resumed chatting. My friend was in sheer horror screaming at me what in the hell was I doing. I was like nothing man. What's the big deal? YOU'RE NAKED YOU'RE NAKED! Oh yeah. My bad.

Only time I ever tried bars. Never again.

A Sting operation!

Quote:
Ex-Oakland Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell arrested in undercover sting


1 Recommend A bad offseason got worse for JaMarcus Russell on Monday when the former Oakland Raiders QB was arrested and alleged to have possessed a controlled substance.

Police in Mobile County, Alabama, alleged that Russell was in possession of codeine, a prescription painkiller. Sheriff's spokesperson Lori Myles told the AP that Russell was arrested as part of an undercover investigation.

The arrest comes two months after the Raiders cut Russell, whom they had selected with the first overall selection in the 2007 draft.

Russell was released after posting $2,500 bail. He is due in court on July 20.

Russell hasn't yet made a comment about the arrest.

Myles said Russell was arrested at his home early this afternoon during an undercover investigation. Police did not find a prescription for the drug during their search, Myles said.

Other people were at the residence, but Russell was the only one arrested, according to Myles.

Although I haven't found it confirmed yet, the "codeine syrup" referred to is most likely a mixture of codeine syrup along with promethazine (Phenergan), well-known on the streets as Purple Drank (which orriginated and first hit the streets here in our own city). Watch this video that explains Purple Drank.

I was referring to that but could not remember the spelling. Very popular at UH.

Default Re: JaMarcus Russell arrested for controlled substance

It was a joke type of article that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle back in March. But now the piece appears to be just plain prophetic of recent revelations.

Quote:
This is a story that's got legs. In fact, the story is moving quicker than the guy it's about.

Gary Peterson, in his Bay Area News Group column Sunday, wrote that Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell was "rumored to have spent part of the offseason at a clinic being treated for lethargy addiction ...."

That joke refers to Russell's notorious work-lite ethic, and to reports that he has been in Arizona at an athletic training program. I, too, have written lines that were so cute that readers missed the joke. Peterson's jest was taken literally by one Bay Area TV sportscaster, who reported Russell's "treatment" as news.

So it's been in print and on TV - JaMarcus is in lethargy rehab. From the e-chat at various Raiders' fan sites, it's clear that for many, the jest has morphed into fact.

Russell did go to Arizona, although if he actually enrolled in a shape-up program, it's news to Raiders' execs.

The interesting thing is not that a columnist's jest was misconstrued, or that a TV reporter misconstrued it. What's fascinating is that Russell's body of, uh, work in three NFL seasons makes the jokey report totally believable.

Russell has become the poster dude for lethargy, a condition waiting to be clinically approved.


Soon doctors will explain that lethargy isn't a character fault, it's a disease. If a golfer can be addicted to sex, why can't a quarterback be addicted to sloth? At least Russell is a recovering non-workaholic.

By the way, on YouTube I saw a clip, "JaMarcus spins twice & slings it 53." Russell, then quarterbacking LSU, and a good 50 pounds lighter than the Russell of today, makes a dazzlingly nimble escape from a pass rush and completes a bomb. If only he could move like that now ...

I need to cover myself here. Maybe Russell really did check into the Lazy Star Dude Ranch & Lethargy Clinic in Phoenix. If so, I wish him luck making it to the meetings.
