No comment from me other than BULLSH!T


Vince Young will not be suspended

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on July 28, 2010 8:15 PM ET
In the end, the reports indicating that Titans quarterback Vince Young was unlikely to face a suspension for his strip club altercation this offseason proved correct.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that the league will not suspend Young. An announcement from the NFL is expected later this week, possibly Thursday.

The news should come as a relief for the Titans, although the decision was not unexpected.

The Titans open with a home game against Oakland in a game that my Raiders fan friend at NBCSports.com swears the Raiders should be favored in. The news that Young will be available won't help the chances of the Silver and Black.

Of course not. Would you expect anything different?

Nope, it doesn't surprise me at all. I may be moving to Tennessee next month, so I'll be sure to go to that game and watch Jimmy Hate break his leg.

Yeah, I read through those. Most of them were spot on too. This is such a sham IMHO.

I'd like to but where's the link?

Btw, for you or anyone else who doesn't have it, here is Roger Goodell's number. Give it a ring!

Vick? Well he didn't stop another grown man from walking into a party(stupid idea) and probably argued about the guy showing up and trying to get him in trouble... and the guy was shot. Maybe because he lied about when he left?

Vince.... well he punched a guy at a strip club. Tons of scholars and noble men hang out at stripper clubs and he actually punched one of them. The horror....

Ben in a bathroom...no video...no charges = 6 game suspension

VY in a strip club bathroom...incident caught on tape...charged with battery = No suspension

MAKES PERFECT SENSE!!!! :HeadBanger

if ben is held responsible for the real ages of the girls and not the bar they chose to enter

why wouldn't vick be responsible for the people at his party having weapons??

a man he was previously accainted with did get shot, right?

He put himself in harms way with a questionable party when he was told he had a very short leash. He tarnished the shield when he was questioned in the shooting of another person.

as part of his reinstatement agreement he was to have no further association with anyone from his dog fighting days. he gets into a verbal altercation with his old homie and then storms out... couple minutes later, homie gets shot..

lol...he had a birthday party where someone came who was uninvited and created problems. He had nothing to do with the incident. I don't know what to say to those who can't see the difference in this and Ben's incident. I do find it compelling though that the only guys who really know about the situation all agreed to the suspension.

My understanding is the guy came uninvited and the verbal altercation was because he came uninvited.

I don't know the details to be honest. but to me, that's hearsay, as much as some sorority sister saying her friend had been raped... I take what convicted criminals say with a grain of salt.

and in the end, we KNOW that someone got shot at Vicks party. we don't KNOW if someone was raped at a club in Georgia. one is indisputable, the other isn't.

Here's my 2 cents!!!!!!!

1. Big Ben tried to get layed at a bar with a college girl!!!!! Who hasnt tried this before???? I mean really.........she doesnt even remember the position she was in but knows he raped her....LOL...give me a break..........BUT BEN is in his 20's and actually is buying shots and having a good time with NORMAL AVERAGE WOMEN!!!!!!!!! No beauty queens or models........he gets 6 games!!!!! He puts a bad image on the NFL, the Steelers and himself so ok 6 games......ok...check...

2. How many times do we read about players visiting these strip clubs???? What in the world does this do to the image of a team, the NFL, or a player???? Again i bring up the VIKINGS yacht full of women!!!!! This stuff happens all the time.........so basically a player can go get a lap dance, slap the dancers butt in the back VIP room but BEN who is trying to hook up with a drunk "REAL" college chick is worse???? I just dont get it........she wore DTF badge, followed him to 3 clubs, waited in a dark room and then decided to say no we shouldnt and when he did anyway she can't remember in what position????? I'm so confused on all of this and there is no REAL STANDARD!!!!!!!!!!

Another way of looking at it is like this: How many wives would get angry if we went to a strip club with our buddies????? Compared to how many wives would get angry if we went out drinking at a bar with our buddies????? Which one would a wife rather us do??????? So if the NFL is the WIFE!!!!!! Shouldnt they be cracking down on the guys who are going to the strip clubs????? Add in the fights with strippers and other customers and I just dont get it.............YET NO SUSPENSIONS are given unless someone gets shot or arrested!!!!!

I'm ok with the suspension, I really am......but i'd rather have our QB chasing hot young college women than visiting a strip club or getting a yacht full of escorts........Our sexually frustrated QB is gonna tear it up this year.........You wait and see!!!!!!!!!!

GOOO STEELERS!!!!!!!!

As predicted. Goodell made his human sacrifice to the media lynch mob. He took the heat off himself at the Steelers expense after getting the ok from the Rooney's.

VY = no suspension.

Looking into the crystal ball:

Cedric Benson = no suspension

Phillip Merling = no suspension

Yo Shawn, this thread wasn't intended to focus on Vick the Dick, but I can see the correlation, so here goes. Vick is a convicted felon, and is still on probation. As such, not only is he prohibited from being in the company of other felons, he cannot drink or do drugs...at all, or he goes back to the clink. Do you honestly think that Vick is partying down with all his homies on his birthday, drinking lemonade? How old is he anyhow? Does he need throw himself a party? Even Tony Dungy, who's been one of his most staunch supporters said he was completely out of line even having the party.

As for Vince Young, he physically assaulted an individual. It's a violent crime, for crying our loud. One could argue, why do they suspend players for smoking a little ganj? Well, they have a Substance Abuse POLICY. What's the league's POLICY on this other stuff. That's the whole problem right there. The commish is flying by the seat of his pants on this stuff, and basically is doing whatever the hell he wants. What's worse, smoking a little pot with your friends or punching someone in public during a drunken rage?

I don't know, some folks just don't look at these things logically.

BTW, this isn't VY's first brush with the law either, he was caught carrying a firearm illegally last year.

So you believe the hearsay that paints Vick in a favorable light but only believe the hearsay that is damning towards Ben?

Wow.

Btw, Vick had people at his party (not just the "uninvited" person) that he was forbidden to have contact with as a condition of his parole or probation or whatever the hell it is that he's on. A player on probation and/or parole...that's certainly not a tarnish to the NFL's image! And a player violating the terms...also certainly not a tarnish! :roll:

Sorta like some sorority girls who followed Ben around and weren't invited. I don't think Vick did anything wrong either ... just like Ben. The no suspension for Vick would make perfect sense if Ben hadn't been suspended. Now do you see some of the similarities between the 2 incidents?

You say that you can't compare the two but.........

Most here agree that Ben's greatest crime was putting himself in a position to be accused when he already had Nevada hanging over his head. He should not have been hanging out in a college town bar buying drinks for any skank who just wants to get drunk. Bad things can and did happen.

Mike Vick also has something hanging over his head. In his case it is not a pending charge that may at some point go away, but it is a felony conviction that will stay with him forever. As well, he has been given instructions from those above him to stay away from certain people. By the same standard that we are holding Ben to, that doesn't just mean that he should not seek them out but he should not put himself in position where it is this easy for them to come to him.

It is all about the optics. He did not have to send out an engraved invitation - or an evite - to be held accountable for Philip's presence. When you are Mike Vick you have to put greater safeguards in to assure that you are not in violation of your league probation.

He held a party at a public place. I would think that word must have got out to people that the party was being held. What was done to make sure that this would not happen? Were bouncers placed at each entrance with a picture of all people who Vick is supposed to avoid and orders to keep them out if they show up? I think that at this point we would all want Ben to safeguard himself that way in order to avoid another incident.

Doogie I think most women are a little more disturbed hearing about a rich football player at a college bar assaulting a 20 year old in a vip bathroom than a football player in a fight at a strip club.

I also think the video helps VY because it doesn't even look like it happened at a strip club. The lack of video for the public to see hurt Ben IMO. They say the video was reviewed and erased but that sounds fishy to most skeptics. I repeat.... most skeptics.

Now as far as strip club vs college bar? Hmmmm. I say the strip club wins out with most wives. Sure its T and A but how many guys bag a stripper when they are out with the guys? Not many... And the ratio is usually 10 guys for every stripper.

Now drunk college chicks? Those were the days. Those youngins are a real threat to most married women.
