    Nothing good comes out of West Virginia.

    Just see this guy, and Buckwild as examples.

    Really? A former West Virginia player and current Bengal arrested? Wow, didn’t see that coming. Hope she’s okay. Hope he enjoys the court time and his upcoming time w/the Commish…freaking dumbass.

    Just to let you guys know this happened about 2 days ago so it did not happen during the offseason

    Who cares? All I saw today in the pregame is stories about a LB that stabbed a man in a limo, lost his white suit, and lied to the police. Moral character is looked over in the NFL

    The Bengals are this centuries Raiders, the only difference is that the Raiders won three superbowls and beat people on the field.

    I love how you didn’t report this Friday went it happened. Love to start drama about the Bengals.

  17. bricktop02 says: Jan 6, 2013 7:08 PM

    Why would you give this nobody any notoriety? He is a roach.

  18. fanofevilempire says: Jan 6, 2013 7:10 PM

    the holiday spirit has ended………

  19. mazblast says: Jan 6, 2013 7:32 PM

    Hits a woman harder and more often than opposing players. He’s a Bengal, all right.

    None of you bums would see me out in my bengals gear and say a word to me. All of you are cowards and hypocrites.

  21. 561bengal says: Jan 6, 2013 7:51 PM

    The crime was grudens playcalling

  22. bengals78 says: Jan 6, 2013 8:31 PM

    As sellout1983 said, I’ve never heard of this guy. So some marginal, non-contributer is accused of something. So what? And are we really pretending like the rest of the NFL doesn’t have a crime blotter clicking like crazy over the past year? Really?

  23. cardsfann1 says: Jan 6, 2013 8:43 PM

    Well its time to reset the days without an arrest timer… 14 days was a lifetime considering these guys in the NFL…

  24. raiderapologist says: Jan 6, 2013 8:55 PM

    Just another Bengal player trying to “earn” a contract extension.

    You wear Bengals gear? Yeah, I wouldn’t say anything. I wouldn’t be able to stop laughing long enough to get a word out.

    Like Sands through the hourglass, so are the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Typical Bengals…

    Mike Brown must be getting a tax break by employing all these convicts.
