You can take the Browns out of Ohio but you can't take the crime out of Baltimore.

So what have we learned? Aside from the Ravens being goons, of course, we always knew that.

The lesson is that nothing good ever happens at strip clubs. One would think that Pacman Jones demonstrated that quite amply, but apparently this guy decided that the lesson needed to be reinforced.

Shootings at a strip club and KOing your woman aren't really a team distraction. Now, a shooting at a male strip club, that'd be a warrior's code distraction.

Apparently you can take the crime out of Baltimore.....you just have to drop it in Florida.

Jah Ried barely counted as a Raven, he had very little playing time.  He is now an ex Raven

And now we've learned what it looks like when the pot calls the kettle black. Show me a team in the NFL that hasn't had a player get into legal trouble in the past year.

Looks like "playing football" isn't the only popular NFL pasttime the Texans suck at.

Steelers:  multiple players sentenced and in court from 2013 instances of assault, drunk driving, etc
Cowboys: Josh Brent, July 2013, drugs
Fins: Are we splitting hairs with the definition of "legal trouble" here?  Incognito ring a bell?
Skins:  Fred Davis arrested DUI within the last few weeks?

Those are just the ones I cared to google.  I'm sure there are more.

The database you're using does not include everything.  It's often cited by the media for the teams you listed as proof that their players are clean, but it's not comprehensive or up to date regarding "legal trouble".

Sorry, that should have read "in 2013" regarding Steelers in court.  The legal issues following these incidents tend to carry over for a long time.

Steelers: Such as?  Only thing a google search shows me is the Mike Adams story, where he was the victim in a carjacking.
Cowboys: Brent hasn't played in the NFL since 2012
Dolphins: It's pretty well come out that Incognito was an asshole (as if we didn't know that already) but there's been nothing of any substance that has come from any source outside the NFL against him
Redskins: I'll admit that I missed the DUI stories.  Probably just passed them over assuming it was the banned substance stuff.

Excluding the Dolphins and Redskins, that's still 8.

Willful ignorance, or Pittsburgh fans just unable to use a computer?

As of June 2013, the Steelers were in the top half of the league -- that's the wrong half -- in player arrests since 2000. The kettle and pot are both black and yellow this time.

Brent was still a Cowboy at the time regardless of playing time.  If that's the criteria then how much of a Raven is Reid?  Incognito was facing possible legal action at one point and has had the police at his house as recently as the last few weeks.

Here's one Steeler who was in legal trouble last year, again only via a quick google search:

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/9133561/alameda-taamu-pittsburgh-s te elers-gets-probation-crashes

In addition, you're phasing out players from the list who are just barely outside the 1 year hypothetical criteria, if only by a few weeks.  You think there's a big difference between 12 months and 13 or 14 when talking about the NFL's problem with crime?  You're splitting hairs to make a useless point.

So really there are maybe 2-4 teams, barring any real investigation, that can maybe say their players have kept their noses clean for any significant amount of time.
 
2014-03-10 03:41:46 PM  
Does professional football have something like college football's Fulmer Cup? If not, they should. Might be a problem to decide which coach or team deserves the dubious honor of having the cup named after them.
