    The Bengals are a disgrace to the league. I mean seriously.....just a disgrace to the NFL.

    Ahmad Brooks is the latest Bengal who thinks he can act above the law.

    Let's move all the remaining bad eggs to Cinci and change the team name to Mean Machine. They can get Mike Vick on a work release program, Carson does not have any felonies.

    Every year they can draft from the prison system..you might as well go to the source.

    You know, the Bengals really are appropriately named. Striped Cats after all...

    The Cinci Bengals are a Bail-Bondsman Dream.

    OK the first thing that came to mind was ..."Mama said knock you out".

    My question is why is he only being charged with a 4th degree assualt? Seriously an unprovoked punch to a woman and being the size he is he could have seriously hurt her.

    heh, I was going to say something similar. What a sad state of affairs for a team. Character issues can make or break teams, and fortunately, this has been a quality high on Mr. McNair's list as he's built our team.

    Too bad he is a professional athlete, so he won't see the inside of a prison cell.

    He will probably get probation.

    Ahmad Brooks is scum.

    If any franchise is worthy of the "Death Penalty", it's the Cincinnati Bengals. Think about it, Roger.

    Man, this is just ridiculous. What is in the water at Camp Bengal?

    drugs, guns, beating up women, DUI, and bar room brawls. I guess they still have homicide left.

    right after the draft too. if anyone deserves to demand a trade its Carson Palmer. that place is a mess and its not gonna get any better.

    this guy should be cut immediately to send a message. after all, they just drafted squeaky clean Keith Rivers so BFD.

    Why would you feel that way? I could've sworn that you wanted low character players in another thread to play dirty because you think that's the only way to win. Seems like the Bengals would be a perfect fit for your boy Haynesworth.

    I was listening to Pat Kirwin on Sirius NFL Radio and he stated that the problem with the Bengals is that they don't take any players for bad conduct off the board. Most of these players that the Bengals drafted had some problems in college. And most NFL teams will take many of these players off their draft board. Well, he stated that the Bengals will draft them in a later round even though they have all these question marks. They did it again this year. They don't learn.

    This is totally expected.
    Ahmad Brooks was kicked out of UVa for similar violent crime incidents, and was put into the supplemental draft

    The Bengals drafted him KNOWING that he had a history of this kind of offense

    They should get the punnishment as wlel as Brooks

    I'm not too familiar with him/the situation(s) but I think you may be on to something. If you start making the teams more responsible for their players actions (on and off the field) we will probably start seeing less incidents from NFL players.

    Think about it. Players will absolutely know that if they do something stupid that not only will they get in trouble but their organization will to. Teams are much more likely to cut/release or not sign players that do dumb off field stuff like this. Players will eventually realize that they need to stay out of trouble because they will get "fired" and that another team down the road is likely NOT to "hire" them for fear they will get in trouble when something happens again.

    See how the leauge fined both Bilichek AND the Patriots for their actions. This is much different than a fight, failed drug test, etc. but maybe it's time to see something similar in the team and player both getting fined.

    This also would make teams invest more time and commitment to the players as far as having programs or meetings, or something, that prevents them from being idiots. A team will invest $ in this to save themselves $ down the road.

    Sometimes you have to hold 'higher ups' accountable when the perp is an animal, not an adult, insane, etc. I think fining teams will continue to get the message across of 'quit drafting and/or signing thugs, problem childs, or evildoers'.
