Another Buccaneer lands in hot water

Drew Brees, Alex Magee AP

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have become a quality team in a short period of time.  But they also have had a significant quantity of off-field incidents.

The latest comes from defensive end Alex Magee, who was arrested on Monday for possession of marijuana and for driving with an expired tag of greater than six months, according to Victoria Lim of Bright House Sports Network, via JoeBucsFan.com.

Magee was traded by the Chiefs to the Buccaneers in 2010.  He’s the tenth member of the organization to be arrested since January 10, 2010.

    Lol the pic

    Please god please, stop the Buccaneer players from committing more crimes that they will blame on the lockout because they don’t have the structure of the off-season workouts to prevent crime.

    To be fair to the Bucs, he won’t be on the team when the season starts. He’s part of the reason they drafted 2 DE’s in the draft.

    How do you feel about changing the team name to the Accapulco Gold Bucaneers? I think its kinda catchy.

  4. madenatewell says: May 9, 2011 10:55 PM

    Weed and guns…what’s funner? Dumb people making too much money…they need to learn to grow up faster…

    Wow, another dumbass. I used to smoke pot in my car too…… back in high school… smoke it at home or a friends place like the rest of us responsible adults. And 6 month expired tags??? I just can’t understand how some players can be so stupid, it’s mind bottling!

    I have a couple problems with that first sentence. Grammatical issues aside, not sure I would classify TB as a quality team. Ten wins against the league’s bottom feeders(OK they beat the Saints) does not make you a quality team. Lets see how they handle next year’s schedule before calling them anything but average.

    this is what happens when you have a player coach. the only reprecussion players have suffered in the morris era is the same reprecussion for everybody else, no new contract.
    Here is a hint: their is no discipline…

    theres are basic adult life tasks like registering your vehicle… this guy is dumb as dog sh!t

    “Ten wins against the league’s bottom feeders(OK they beat the Saints) does not make you a quality team.”

    Yeah, but its enough to make Atlanta great? OK

    And there were plenty of arrests under Gruden, everyone. That whole “players coach” line doesn’t hold water.

    Driving while expired – now there’s a Wonderlic winner.

  11. loytomaki says: May 9, 2011 11:17 PM

    Did someone tell the team they have a mascot to play the part of the Buccaneer and they are not real Pirates?

    Or am I the one who has it wrong?

    Maybe they are real Pirates… which makes sending them to England in the fall a lot more sense… One last chance to pillage the crown!

    Then again, will any of them still have access to their passports by then?

  12. whatswiththehate says: May 9, 2011 11:18 PM

    What, no postings of, this is the reason we need to legalize marijuana? Or, possessing isn’t the same as smoking it, excuses…Where are the excuse posting for this player?

    Also, did he have a friend in the Car? Maybe he can try the “it’s my friend who owns it not me,” line. It seem to work well for rich kids of former NFL players.

  13. FinFan68 says: May 9, 2011 11:26 PM

    When almost 20% of your team has been arrested within the last 18 months (some multiple times) it is fair to say there is a discipline problem.

  14. nflwatcher says: May 9, 2011 11:29 PM

    If I was young agent starting out I would offer to handle all registry business for free to players if they signed with me. Magee would never had been stopped if his tags were valid and now eventually will lose game check money once he pleads. A good agent should make sure his client is legit on the road at least.

    “Smoke it at home like the rest uf us responsible adults?” Huh??

    By the way…it’s mind boggling, not mind bottling!
    Wow…..I just don’t know what to say about that, except that I laughed so hard when I read the mind “bottling” comment. Your command of the English language is frightingly similar to Mike Tyson. THAT’S NOT GOOD!!!!

    Get off the icky now, dude!!

  16. slickzmoney says: May 9, 2011 11:32 PM

    @grudenthediva I did not call Atlanta great(how do you even infer that?) but I would call them quality.

  17. melonnhead says: May 9, 2011 11:40 PM

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have become a quality team in a short period of time.

    —————————————————–

    Think so? How many winning teams did they beat last year (not counting the Saints, who pulled starters out early in the final game of the season)? The answer is -0-. And 5 of their 9 wins against crappy opponents were by 3 points or less.

  18. thefiesty1 says: May 9, 2011 11:41 PM

    ….and another one bites the dust. What are the Bucs trying to do, take away the rep from the Bengals?

  19. peanutbutter&jelly says: May 9, 2011 11:49 PM

    i made a post a little while back and it was a story i read about a guy that went to prison for 4 years for a felony he committed. he did his time got out and went to trade school and learned hvac work and opon completion he discovered he could not obtain a license to do that type of work because he was a convicted felon. and i strongly feel that all celebrities should have to be licensed to do thier type of work and when they become convicted felons (like so many seem to do) thier license gets revoked and they can no longer do whatever it is they do untill they are pardoned for thier crimes and yes that would include pro football players.i look at it like this,if an average joe can’t go and make an honest living with out jumping thru a bunch of hoops then why in the world are so many celebrity types givin every opprotuinity in the world time and time again to make millions and still screw it up? the same standard should apply atleast as far as i’m concerned

  20. veraky says: May 9, 2011 11:54 PM

    @duece5

    First off, the smoking pot at home part was a joke, basically pointing out that this guy could be much smarter about his habit. Secondly, google “mind bottling” it’s a reference from a movie that I figured most people would get but apparently not….

  21. mike106 says: May 10, 2011 12:13 AM

    owners can yall please let this guy go to work so he can afford a tag for his bently.

  22. truzt says: May 10, 2011 12:42 AM

    LOL irony. Mind “bottling” that’s hilarious. Pot, meet kettle. As to the issue at hand, yeah he’ll be off the team due to sucking, not because he smoked some dope. This coming from a guy who’s never touched the stuff. Aqib Talib and Tanard Jackson are worries, Alex Magee is not.

    Care to list that almost 20% of the team or are you just pulling numbers out your butt? I think I know which it is.

    not sure I would classify TB as a quality team. Ten wins against the league’s bottom feeders(OK they beat the Saints) does not make you a quality team. Lets see how they handle next year’s schedule before calling them anything but average.

    And who outside the divison did the Saints beat? Oh that one win over the Steelers must make them a quality team, the loses to the Cards & Browns (more loses to teams with losing records than the Bucs had) mean nothing.

    You play the schedule you are given, the Falcons were lucky to walk away with a sweep, that very nearly went the other way.

  29. hedleykow says: May 10, 2011 3:15 AM

    The arresting officer found little humor in Magee’s story about a recent Cheetos endorsement he claimed to have landed.

    It has since been asserted by the Bay Area District Attorney that really strong Cheeto breath, in combination with heavily Cheeto stained car seat upholstery establishes probably cause to search.

    Frito-Lay is crying foul.

  30. tjacks7 says: May 10, 2011 3:41 AM

    expired tag of greater than six months.

    Over 6 months, really dude?

  31. leroysbutler says: May 10, 2011 5:40 AM

    Maybe they should change their name to the Tampa Bay Bengals.

    At least their quarterback hasn’t raped anyone – yet.

  32. relaxitsmax says: May 10, 2011 5:50 AM

    @veraky

    You just called someone stupid then used the phrase “mind bottling”. Good work.

  33. xmgmx says: May 10, 2011 5:55 AM

    The ‘mind bottling’ comment was a Will Ferrell reference, I hope, because I laughed. :)

    They should go back to wearing orange…. that’s the color of prison jumpsuits right?

    @Melonhead,

    for ur information the saints pulled the starters with 5 mins in the 4th nice try bashing the Bucs tho idiot

  36. rgwhodey says: May 10, 2011 8:15 AM

    @thefiesty1

    Actually the steelers took that role from the bengals.. and now it does look like the bucs are making rapistboerger look like a choir boy..

  38. armchairgm9 says: May 10, 2011 8:24 AM

    I hate when people blast a team for not beating anyone good. You know what’s harder? Beating all the teams you’re supposed to beat. And the Bucs did that. The Bucs lost to the Steelers, Falcons, Saints, Patriots, and Lions (on a call even the refs admitted they blew). Who did your team lose to?

    In the mean time the media still takes shots at the Bengals every time they can. Yawn. Pop quiz… When is the last time a Bengal player was arrested? (of course me saying this means one will be today)

  41. peanutbutter&jelly says: May 10, 2011 9:23 AM

    as for the 10 win season for the buc’s, i feel any team that wins 10 games in the nfl deserves credit for a good season no matter who they played.i’d put the worst nfl team up against any other football team in the world and i would bet on that nfl team to win

  42. bunjy96 says: May 10, 2011 9:24 AM

    Must be something in the water down there or maybe its water imported from Cincinnati.

    ==============================

    Ummm………….the article states that 10 Bucs have been arrested since January 2010.

    Assuming a 54 man roster, that would mean that nearly 20% of their roster had been arrested in the last 18 months (actually 15).

    And “mind bottling” is a Blades of Glory reference, and a funny one at that.

    Nice to see the blowhard spelling nazis on here are not only grammar geeks but don’t get out much either.

  44. airraid77 says: May 10, 2011 9:37 AM

    armchairgm9,
    they should have lost 5 of those games against the team they were suppose to beat anyways. and i am being nice. The falcons dont have more talent, they are just better football team. Charlie batch beat you 38 to what ?

  45. greenmeattruck says: May 10, 2011 9:52 AM

    Even potheads are usually smart enuff to not get caught up this way. Expired six months and in possession of the wrong kind of green?!
    Apperently, his income hasn’t been interrupted long enuff to run out of weed. I bet he knows Nate Newton AND Craig Heyward!

    There is no mention whatsoever of the Bengals in the article.

    The Bengals are only mentioned by the posters, who hardly qualify as media.

    You can all blow it our your ass.

    When the ’72 Dolphins went undefeated they beat two teams with a winning record. Does anyone ever recount that fact? No, they recount the fact that they never lose.

    Sorry your team wasn’t good enough to win 10 games, unless you’re a Seahawks fan and you still got to go to the playoffs.

    @kaz

    Ya I was thinking the same thing it was 6 yrs ago they had their non sense and I don’t believe any of those players are still on the team gets old after a while.. I see teams I.e. steelers packers bucs having multi arrests a year but the pundits only seem to remember the bengals from 6 years ago move on every NFL team has its off field issues..

    maualuga would have been the most recent for dui… but I didn’t wanna mention it in fear of jinxing them

    ——-

    Actually there were 11 minutes left in the game and the Bucs were leading 20-13. I was there and if there had only been 5 minutes left when Chase Daniel went in, I would have left at that point, but with almost the whole quarter remaining I stayed.

  55. rcali says: May 10, 2011 1:09 PM

    Anyone won else see the Bucs taking a step back this year? Almost getting to the playoffs might have went to their heads.

  56. psymunsez says: May 11, 2011 11:29 PM

    Just a couple quick comments about the Bucs as a team…

    8 of the 11 Offensive Starters were Rookies, 2nd or 3rd year players…

    8 of the 11 Defensive Starters were Rookies, 2nd, 3rd or 4th year players…

    Rookie Punter…

    Started a total of 8 rookies, and played 21 rookies

    Second youngest team in the NFL…

    Second Year Coach and Second Year GM

    Did they always dominate? No. Do they have a lot to prove HELL YES, but they did damn good for an EXTREMELY young team. Top to bottom.

    As for the arrests, SMH. Aqib was protecting his sister, but shooting at someone is retarded. DUIs are retarded. If you need a DD, seriously give me a call and pay me 50 bucks… it will save you hundreds, and possibly millions. Posession? Dude seriously? All that money and you need to do drugs? For what?
