            Jermaine Whitehead cited for driving 110 mph on way to Packers practice.

May 24, 2017


 :coffee: ....
Green Bay Packers safety Jermaine Whitehead was recently pulled over for driving incredibly fast on the freeway in the wee hours of the morning, but at least he was heading to work.

 :popcorn: ....
According to a police report obtained by Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Whitehead was cited on May 19 for driving 110 mph in a 70-mph zone. It was 3:39 a.m. at the time, and Whitehead said he and the two teammates he was riding with needed to be at the Packers’ team facility by 8 a.m.

 :bs: ...
“Jermaine originally said he was going 75 to 80 :whistling: when I asked him how fast he was driving,” deputy sheriff Chad Baumann wrote. “I told him his speed (110 mph) and the fact he was passing a semi at a high rate of speed. He did not contest this speed.

“I learned he and the 3 occupants were heading to Green Bay as they have to work at 8 a.m. I then learned they were Green Bay Packer players.”

Whitehead was driving near Milwaukee at the time, which is about two hours away from Green Bay. He was issued a ticket for $515.50 and is scheduled to appear in court on June 14.


Whitehead spent most of the 2016 season on the practice squad with the Packers, appearing in just two games on special teams. He’s fortunate to have only been written a ticket (like another professional athlete who recently caught a break) for driving that fast, as he could have been arrested. It’s unclear if he managed to get to work on time. tut_tut-3315.gif

:scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

 :police: ...
Da cops didn't realize that he was "SPECIAL!" :bonk: :bonk:

:reporter; Ex-NFL  RB Green arrested after child abuse accusations.

 :doah: ....
Former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green has been arrested in Wisconsin on allegations of child abuse, according to Paul Srubas of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Green was reportedly arrested at his home Sunday evening. As Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper notes, jail records show Green has been charged with child abuse-intentionally causing harm/cruelty toward child.

Green starred for the Packers from 2000-06, topping 1,000 yards rushing six times, and he remains the leading rusher in franchise history.

Green also played for the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans.


      "Stupid is as stupid does!" :banghead:

   Vikings' Floyd gets day in jail for house arrest violation.

by USA Today Sports

 :reporter; .....
Michael Floyd will be headed to jail for a day as penalty for violating his house arrest.

 :bonk: ......
Floyd had been on house arrest as part of the penalty terms for his December extreme DUI. He committed a violation when he tested positive for alcohol two weeks ago.

His penalty for the violation is a day in jail and five more days of house arrest. :banghead:


 :coffee: .....
The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver claimed he had alcohol in his system because of kombucha tea. The team sent a letter taking responsibility for having the tea at their facility. :scratch: :doah:


:coffee: ... more

Vikings' Floyd expected to be sidelined to open season.


A preliminary Minnesota Vikings roster projection by Matt Vensel of The Star Tribune doesn’t include an active Michael Floyd.

 :popcorn: ...
The reason being is that Floyd could likely be facing an NFL suspension for a December 2016 drunk driving arrest. Per the report, if Floyd gets suspended he will not count towards the 53-man roster.

 :doah: ....
This is taking into consideration that Floyd is still a member of the Vikings once September rolls around. Floyd was involved in another incident where he is disputing that he did not fail a recent alcohol test. He is currently on house arrest with a zero tolerance alcohol policy.

The Vikings’ current wide receivers that round out the rest of the projected 53-man roster include Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright and Rodney Adams, per Vensel.

 :banghead: ...
Floyd’s future with the Vikings at the very least, looks to be suspended in mid-air. He was an original 13th overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2012. The Cardinals immediately cut him when news of December’s arrest broke.

Fortunately for Floyd, the New England Patriots quickly signed him and turned him into a one-time Super Bowl champion.

We will see soon enough what the Vikings plan to do about Floyd with a possible suspension looming.

Floyd needs to be sent in to finish his sentence in jail. He would have known that the tea was likely to become alcoholic by not refrigerating it. He is just acting like all the other "DINDONUFFIN"s crying I didn't know. Jail his azz and get someone who can follow the rules.

:reporter; Lions' Robinson, Buccaneers' Benenoch sued for $9K nightclub tab.

8/1/17

 :coffee: .....
Detroit Lions defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson and Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch are being sued for the remaining $5,332 of a $9,332 nightclub tab accrued in March.

 :popcorn: ..
Richard James Harrington hosted both players at Hyde Sunset Kitchen and Cocktails in Hollywood, where Robinson and Benenoch ran up a $9,332 tab. When it was time to pay the bill, both Robinson's and Benenoch's credit cards were declined. :bonk:

Harrington paid the bill on the condition that both players pay him back for their expenses. It's stated in the lawsuit that Harrington received $4,000, but the duo is refusing to pay the remainder. :moon:

Benenoch believes they met their responsibilities, however.

"We did our part," Benenoch said via ESPN's Jenna Laine and Michael Rothstein.

"This is all I'm really going to say on it - I'm focused on football. I'm not really worried about what they've got going on. The legal system is going to play itself out. I'm focused on what we've got going on here."

Robinson declined to comment :moon:  :reporter; when asked by ESPN.


                                  :sorry:
                        But I'm broke ma brotha :confused:

  Falcons' Jalen Collins Suspended 10 games for PED violation. :tut:

3 hours ago:

 :bonk: ...
The NFL suspended Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins 10 games without pay for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.

 :crazy: ...
It will be the second year in a row that Collins will be suspended to begin the season. He was banned for four games last season for violating the PED policy.

 :popcorn: ...
Collins, who was the team's second round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, is eligible to return to the team's active roster on Nov. 21, and can participate in all preseason practices and games before the first week of the regular season.

 :angry2: ....
“We are extremely disappointed that for the second straight season we are dealing with a suspension for Jalen. Such are the consequences when certain choices are made. Our decisions going forward will be based on what Dan and I feel is best for the team," Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement.

The 24-year-old Collins played in eight games last season, totaling 31 tackles, 10 pass breakups and two interceptions. :moon:

Falcons' Jalen Collins Suspended 10 games for PED violation.

Yes, the articles are saying 10 game suspension for Performance Enhancing Drug violation now.

However, back in 2015 he was entering the NFL substance abuse policy for multiple failed drug tests.

I wonder if this latest suspension is for steroids or if he is not able to stay off the drugs.

   Zach Randolph arrested on felony weed charges.

8/10/17
45 min ago


 :coffee: ......
Sacramento Kings power forward Zach Randolph was arrested in Los Angeles early Thursday morning, according to a breaking news report from TMZ. Randolph was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell, according to the report.
 
 :police: ...
Three people were detained -- including Randolph, who was eventually arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell, A FELONY. We're told the "intent to sell" part was due to the large amount of weed found.

Recreational marijuana is legal in California, but there are limits on how much you can have for it to be considered recreational. Weed is also still considered illegal at the federal level, and is a banned substance in the eyes of the NBA.

 :confused: ...
We’re obviously still in the dark about how this will all play out, but it’s a disappointing start to Randolph’s Kings career. Even if he avoids jail time, we can probably expect the league to suspend him for at least a few games.

 :reporter; .....More as this story develops.


"I ain't done nuttin they got da wrong guy" :confused:

   Lynch sits during national anthem vs. Cardinals. :bonk:

 :coffee: ......
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest athlete to not stand during the national anthem ahead of Saturday's preseason game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

The Raiders star, who sat out the 2016 season and came out of retirement this spring, is the latest NFL player to protest during the anthem, joining Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins - who will continue to do so this year - and free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, among others.

No other players joined Lynch on Saturday. :happy1:



 
The protest came amid a day of violence, with a group of white nationalists storming the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville. A vehicle drove into a group of counter-protesters, killing at least one person and injuring numerous others.

     Seahawks DE Michael Bennett remains seated during national anthem

 :reporter;10 hrs ago.....

  :angry2: Anudder douch bag .....
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett sat alone on the team's bench during the national anthem as the Seahawks opened the preseason in Los Angeles on Sunday.

After the song concluded, Bennett rejoined his teammates on the field who were standing with locked arms.


Bennett's silent protest took place one day after Oakland Raiders running back and former teammate Marshawn Lynch remained seated before the Raiders 20-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Like Lynch, Bennett received a mix of hate and praise for his protest.







The move from Bennett doesn't exactly come as a surprise.

The Pro Bowl defensive end has been outspoken about social issues that matter to him before and is currently writing a book called "How to Make White People Uncomfortable."

Bennett is also good friends with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick,  :bonk: who began sitting during the national anthem last September. He recently said he believes Kaepernick is being "blackballed" in regard to the fact he has not yet been signed by an NFL team.

Kaepernick worked out for the Seahawks this offseason, but the team later decided to sign Broncos free agent Austin Davis instead.
