    Make it 9

    According to Lance's blog the 9th Bengal was arrested last night. Johnathan Joseph was arrested for possession of marijuana. Why am I still shocked everytime I hear about this? It will be interesting to see how the new "Tough Marvin" handles this. Joseph is probablly one of the core 5 the Bengals need to build around.

    I want to laugh. I really do. The whole "I'm above the law, I need to portray my culture" BS really irks me. It's seems to be more prevalent in the NFL. The problem is the penalties are of little deterrence, IMO.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    But it's not 9 this year, see... when do we get to move back to 0 on the rolling calendar year?

    Soon? Hopefully? because once we get into the double digits, I fear people might find something to talk about.

    That sucks. It seems he is a victim of the company he keeps.

    I thought it was a rolling 12-month time period....

    So this is the 2nd Bengals player caught with mary-jane this year? I guess it goes to show you what a joke the NFL's drug testing really is.

    A friend of a friend is the brother of a long time NFL QB vet. This vet liked to partake in mary-jane. This vet was informed by his team a good two months in advance when he would be tested. Plenty of time for the partaker to clean up the urine that would be taken. Just goes to show you how stupid or addicted those who fail the tests really are (Odell?). I think it is obvious that the testing is a joke. Look... two Bengals (Joseph & Henry) caught with mary-jane, but no one has failed an NFL administered test. Strange?

    I know for 100% fact that college athletes are told well in advance for steroid/recreational drug tests.
    It's a sham.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Release, please.

    We need a zero tolerance on criminal activity this year, even if it means dismantling the team.

    So funny we are riding these guys for smoking pot but then we are praising alcohol usage on another thread.

    I know marijuana is illegal, but geesh, anybody who has smoked pot knows it's safer than alcohol in many ways.

    So throw away last year's first round pick because he was in a car with a pot smoker? I'm all for tightening up the discipline, but let's not go off the deep end.

    So he got arrested doing something we all have done and know is safer.

    It's not like he raped or beat up somebody.

    I wish it never would have happened and it will be interesting to see how Marvin handles it, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over a marijuana arrest.

    Might want to speak for yourself on that one.
