Pro Football Talk is reporting the following:



Per numerous media reports, including the Las Vegas Review-Journal, newly-signed Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was cited for misdemeanor battery on Sunday night after allegedly punching Bengals left tackle Levi Jones in the face.

The altercation started at a gaming table at the Palms casino.

Per an e-mail from a reader who claims to have witnessed the incident, "They started talking sh-t, Joey Porter saying he'll always be a Steeler. He showed off the Super Bowl ring and Jones got up to him, and Joey Porter pretty much kicked his ass . . . . Jones never got a shot in."

I had pondered if someone as passionate about the game as Joey was equally passionate about the Steelers to the degree that he would not play for a rival such as the Bengals. Maybe this incident sheds some light on that. Now that Joey has his money from someone else he is free to continue to let his true feelings show.

Right or wrong, I grinned real big when I read this story!!
