As for appealing the suspensions, the PA also seems to be in agreement with the commissioner so I doubt the suspensions will be reduced. The commish can do whatever he now wants especially since he has the PA on his side. I like the move and hope he continues to do stuff like this to other players in the league.
Why don't you do that with Chris Henry? He has a huge amount of talent, sadly he's too immature to use it to his benefiet.

They haven't because somebody else would have picked him up and it might have come back to haunt the Bengals.
They say idle hands are the devil's workshop. Looks like he won't be able to practice with the team once the season starts. That's a lot of time on his hands. I guess we'll see how he handles all that free time.
These professional athletes that are from WV are maing us look bad. Next OJ Mayo will be in trouble when he makes it to the NBA.

He now has more free time on his hands to think about his life and what his goals are. Hope he uses that time wisely and not get in more trouble.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Anyone who thinks the Bengals couldn't have gotten rid of Henry one way or another is deluding themselves. They could have dressed it up any number of different ways and there's no way the Player's Association is going to get into a public and protracted battle over Chris bleepin' Henry.
They kept him for one reason and one reason only: He's a hell of a football player and possesses a level of talent that is nigh-impossible to replace.
I just hope Marvin has a twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week baby-sitter picked out for him. Seriously.
At this point I'd actually almost be surprised if Henry ever plays for the Bengals again. Not sure how willing Marvin is gonna be to play him again.
I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
