JEFF REED GOES BONKOS OVER AN ABSENCE OF PAPER TOWELS

Thirteen days ago, Steelers kicker Jeff Reed was preparing to win his second Super Bowl ring.
Little more than twelve hours ago, Reed was gettled saddled with two criminal counts.
All due to an absence of paper towels.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Reed “threw a tantrum” because of an empty paper towel dispenser at a convenience store.
He began yelling loudly, and used profanity.  He also banged on the dispenser, and damaged it.  Reed continued to use profanity after leaving the store.
The 29-year-old kicker eventually was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
The Steelers likely won’t take any action against Reed.  Especially if he needed the paper towels to clean up water that had been spilled during a nearby baptism.

  1. Dr. Florio,
    The word is “bonkers”. There is no such word, expression, even slang that suggests the word “bonkos”. Nice try, Napoleon.
    Fortunately for all of us, you’re over 18 so at least you won’t respond, “whatever”.

  2. And a 200 fine later the story is dead and burried . He will go to camp and sign a long term contract . And all is well with Steelers nation . lol gotta love em .

  3. Wait…before any steeler fans say..Florio, this is a non-story….if it was a Raven it would be a story!!

  4. Dude….dry your hands on your pants like the rest of us do….
    It’s really convenient, plus if you dribbled a little bit (or were “sprayed by the sink”) you can just rub the water all over and be like “They are out of paper towels.”

  5. well, i guess not getting arrested for drugs, shooting yourself in the foot, having too much fun in a strip club or drunk driving is a positive thing….

  6. Yeah I bet the dumb fans that post here will come to the conclusion that Reed’s tamtrum screwed the Cardinals out of the Superbowl since the refs didn’t flag him for this, 2 weeks after the game.

    That method is only approved by Browns players….and many many staph infections later…

  8. Wow, I can imagine the uproar if this had been a Cowboys player. Thanks for providing the link to Dan Rooney letting the world know what a hypocritical piece of shit he is. He shouldn’t have tried to rationalize keeping Harrison. We all know why they kept him, but it’s extra-strength stupid to try to excuse the fact that he beat the shit out of a woman that’s less than half his size.

    Now i understand why that Ravens player spit in his face.

    It was the punter Mitch Berger, and it was his mouth. Reed was the one that went after Walker like he was a towel dispenser.

  10. He should have kicked that paper towel dispenser over the store and into the street. Then Big Ben could have thrown it through the window. Stay classy Steelers!

    Bonko’s is a Seinfeld reference. Regis Philbin kept saying it about Kramer and his coffee table book.
    Same thing happened to me this morning as Reed. Only difference is I shook my hands and wiped them on the inside of my coat. Then I left.

  12. That is called a tiny overreaction. Pretty funny for us but he is probably kicking himself in the nuts right now.

  13. The ravens guy spit in the face of the punter. He’d be too scared to spit in Jeff Reeds face – Reed would go bonkos.

  14. TeddyBayer…his use of the term “Bonkos” comes from the episode of Seinfeld when Kramer appears on Regis and Kathy Lee….Regis referred to Kramer as “Bonkos”……if your an avid reader you should know Florio uses Seinfeldisms all the time…..google the word Bonkos and you would have seen it right away…..

  15. this dude is an idiot…he’s like a worse mike vanderjagt…i live in pitt…and he is a kicker he is always out getting hammered and taking his shirt off…and thinks hes a god

  16. Ravenmanic has got it bad.
    But his last statement “I want my mommy!” – we will attribute that to him speaking of himself.
    It says it all…

  17. Mother Mary Of Jesus.
    Leave the guy alone. At least he washed his hands.
    82% of all virus’s are successful from with in 30 yards of the bathroom.
    68% of all virus’s come from out side the 40 yard mark.
    And a real good kicker, who does not wash his hands, can give you a virus about 55 yards from the bathroom.

  18. If I didn’t know better I’d say that sounds an awful lot like Roid rage. But, no way a member of the Steal-ers would be on roids. It’s not like their team Doc for 22 years bought $150K worth of testosterone or anything.

  19. If he was arrested why wasn’t the days without arrest counter reset?
    More proof Florio is a Steelers lover like the rest of the media.

  20. Isn’t he the guy that sent a pic of his junk to some chick he had met in a bar that night? And isn’t he the guy that looked like Lance Bass’s lover at the Superbowl? Who says kickers have dull lives.

  21. Hey Florio, didn’t the Steelers bench Santonio Holmes for a game when he got caught with pot, and didn’t they cut former starter Cedrick Wilson when he got arrested.
    Are you suggesting they cut Reed over a misdemeanor? Foolio = idiot

  22. He wasn’t arrested. He was issued citations whare no worse than speeding tickets….at least that’s what ESPN is reporting.

  23. I wonder if it was his stupid blonde hair that gave him away as being Jeff Reed, kicker for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
    Two Super Bowl rings and he acts like that. Use a Terrible Towel. NFL players use them occasionally to wipe stuff off their shoes. I’m sure it would work to dry your hands off.

  24. Roid rage running prevelent in Pittsburgh. Nothing will hapen to him though because he is an important part of the team

    Dr. Florio,
    The word is “bonkers”. There is no such word, expression, even slang that suggests the word “bonkos”. Nice try, Napoleon.
    Teddy, I normally don’t correct people when they try and play florio, but “bonkos” is from Seinfeld. It’s the episode when Kramer was promoting his coffee table book on Regis and kathy lee.. Regis kept calling him Bonkos.
    Anyway, did anyone see the pics of that cheeseball reed shirtless in every crappy bar and club pic? rockin the bandana and wristbands. Man, that guy is the worst.

  26. Teddybayer;
    It’s bonkos, you tool. Have you STILL not caught on that Florio likes Seinfeld? (It was the episode when Kramer went on ‘Live with Regis and Kathie Lee’ to promote his coffee table book about coffee tables…Regis repeatedly described Kramer as “Bonkos”.)

  27. Go dammit i need TP for my BUNGHOLE!!!
    stupid kickers! I never saw a kicker look like he’s a rockstar. Dont they just beat these dudes up in the locker rooms?

  28. I met Jeff at the Steelers fantasy camp in ’04. He was totally cool. First of all, for an active/current player to involve himself in such a gay thing – you have to give him props. Plus I smacked a 45 yard FG and he was like ‘dude you’re going to take my job’. He was so cool. He spent time and was cool with losers like me – even worse than me – he spent time with total jackasses and was so cool about it. So if he was a little PO’d about some BS paper towel shit- so be it. I know he is a good guy. Not to mention he is the most underated kicker in the league.

  29. Now i understand why that Ravens player spit in his face.
    ___________
    That was Mitch Berger, the punter.

  30. reed is a fool, he tries to pump iron so he doesn’t look
    like a typical kicker, and he has his ridiculous dragon ball-z
    hairdo, cut that guy and get a normal kicker.

    That wasn’t Reed the raven trash spit at it was the punter Mitch, 30 yards net, Berger.

  32. Florio keeps deleting my comments… I bet that wouldnt happen if my name was superSTEELERS 69…
    by the way my comment was
    LO freaking L, even though i hate the Steelers, Jeff Reed continues to be my favorite kicker ever.

  33. Wow, you know what would be hysterical? If I become the 74th person to comment about him using a Terrible Towel do dry his hands!
    Kids, let’s “get real” for a second. He’s no juiced-up kicker, just a drunken kicker. Learn the difference. If you have to be on steroids to do something asinine in public at 2 am, I guess the majority of my college friends were juicing back in the day.

    You can come down off the cross now martyr boy. If it was a Cowboys player:
    a) it would be expected due to a previous record
    b) would go unreported as long as it happened in Dallas
    c) would draw a yawn except for people wanting to rub it in your face and you using all 20 screen names you have to make it look like anyone cares about the Cowboys.

  35. Could everybody please stop writing the same thing over and over again! I get it, it was Mitch Berger, and no he didn’t have a terrible towl, god damn it thats irritating…and Seinfeld sucks anyways, so get on with it…good god… Can we get back to talking football please?

  36. @steelerfan9598 . . . .
    that reminds me of george carlin’s line — “if you need to wash your hands after touching your d–k, shouldn’t you be washing your d–k?”
    i think he also said, “i only wash my hands after taking i shit if i get shit on them,” or something like that.

    What you are failing to realize is that the comments stopped getting posted to this thread for about 4 hours. In that four hours there were no posts about Berger placed in the thread by the admin so everyone that made a comment in that four hours had no idea what the others had said. Lag time on blogs sucks.

  38. This just in……The AP has now learned that the paper towel dispenser did in fact spit into Reeds mouth…
    When asked about the incident, he replied, I only went into the store to get more bleach for my hair….chicks dig that you know…
    The paper towel dispenser denies spitting into Reeds mouth but has said it will hold a press conference where it will announce that it plans to press charges. The AP has also learned that Mike Florio will represent the paper towel dispenser.

  39. Dude even the kicker is on roids! I mean come on, can’t this team be a little more subtle, I know they have a rep to uphold but c’mon, a kicker isn’t even a real player!

  40. These minor legal problems should be the least of his worries. Once Don King gets a look at the pictures of this dude, he may file a copyright infringement lawsuit…
