    Happy Birthday, Bengals.

    Nate Webster was convicted for having sex with a 15year old today.

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/80...years-sex-case

    What i found interesting was the headline on ESPN's homepage that said "Ex-Bengal Webster Gets 12 Years....". He played for the Patriots for 4 years and the Broncos for 3, but the Bengals for only 2. The last team he played for was the Broncos. Why is he an "Ex-Bengal"? Maybe it's because this was in Cincinnati, but i just found that odd.

    I am taking a complete stab in the dark here, but my guess is because Cincinnati has had so many players with off the field issues. ESPN probably thought this was a better headline, as it would likely stir up feelings by others of, "there they go again."

    Exactly which is lazy and unfairly paints an incorrect picture of the current Bengals. Yet I guess that will draw hits to their site.

    Webster played 4 out of his 99 career games with the Bengals and spent the the last two seasons in Denver. I've yet to see him referred nationally as ex-Buccaneer or ex-Bronco - only ex-Bengal.

    The Bengals will always be the red-headed stepchild of the NFL, at least until the NFL gets a commissioner willing to crack down on media darling/noted thug teams like the Steelers and Pats.
