    A National Football League player was cited for misdemeanor battery after he punched a league rival in the face Sunday night at a gaming table in the Palms, Las Vegas police said.

    Linebacker Joey Porter, a longtime Pittsburgh Steeler who signed a five-year, $32 million deal with the Miami Dolphins this month, was cited for the brief fight he had with Levi Jones, an offensive tackle with the Cincinnati Bengals, in the casino about 6:55 p.m., Las Vegas police Lt. Kevin McMahill said.

    Yet another bengal adding to the "thug life" mentality that is Cincinati Pro football.

    Whenever a young black man has a fist fight he's labled a thug. Yeah I said it.

    I think that's bull IMHO...

    People have fist fights all the time, in all age groups, and every race. But becaue theses guys are young, well known black men, they get labled "thugs". Granted some of these guys are thugs, but I don't think we know enough about some of these athletes to assume they're thugs because of a freaking fist fight.

    I made that statement in reference to what the Cincinati Bengals players have been caught up in for the better part of a year. If it were a white guy i would have made the same statement, has nothing to do with both of the guys being black, jeez.

    I quoted you because you used the word "thugs"...I was making a general statement, because my reading comprehension is fairly good and I realize that you weren't calling anybody anything.

    But I stick by what I wrote.

    Not sure if this was sarcasm or not, but assuming it wasn't...


    Fist fight in your mind = thug ?

    I don't agree.

    Nalen, Romanowski, Wisniewski, Widell, Gogan, etc.

    All thugs. None are black... but they might all be Polish or something.

    None of those guys were called "thugs" or associated with "thug life" or being a "gangster"...

    I'm not asking you to agree. I'm telling you how it is.

    If a young black athlete does something wrong...fist fight, drugs...whatever...He's called a thug...

    No other race is.

    I'm not really going to debate it, and I'll pretty much leave this topic alone because I don't want to get into it, just adding my two cents.

    yeah i was busting your balls actually because of the oversimplified look at things, but that seems to be your thing.

    ya see, this "thug" label is applied anytime there's "thuggish" behavior. "thuggish" means a very aggressive behavior, and always in a group. this is why these NBA fights are called "thuggish" because it's a bunch of dudes ganging up and throwing hands. that's why he called the bengals "thuggish" because it's almost a group-mentality with all of their crazy antics. if there's just a fistfight between two guys, whatever.

    Guess I am going to get into it...

    You're making stuff up as you go along....sorta writting your own "rule" book....



    Why aren't baseball players considered "thugs" when they have bench clearing brawls ?

    Why aren't hockey players considered "thugs" when they fight, and almost kill eachother on the ice ?

    Why is it that only the two perdominitely Black sports, get players labled as thugs when they have mis-haps with the law ?

    I think you need to look up the definition of "thug" in the dictionary.
