Default Re: Marvin Lewis: 'Cincy Police Profile Players'

I had the impression, some time ago, that Marvin was actually a pretty good guy.

Turns out he is one of the most destructive influences this Bengal organisation has to contend with.

In the past they were a bit of a laughing stock, being a Patriots fan I know what thats like, but the blatant attempt at 'short circuiting' the process that build great franchises has made them even more heavily derided.

I don't know how far up the ladder this lazy, shortsighted ethic towards franchise building goes but if some guys are disturbed by Marvins continued blinkered view (and they should be) of player discipline then you have to feel that he may be on a short shrift if he can't deliver a playoff win or 2 this year.

Just think - if this is the stuff the Marvin openly acknowledges to the media - who knows what craziness he preaches to the team in private.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I'm going to venture a guess and say quite far, considering the questionably flawed characters that the F.O. keeps signing...

Totally agree with the second statement....but I have to wonder if Marvins ability to bring this team to .500 puts him at God status in this city.

Not quite - he has achieved "Black Jesus" status, though!

Hold on,let me get this straight:

They were profiling Henry when he served alcohol to underage girls,got caught firing a gun,got caught with unregistered guns,when he was caught with marijuana,when he was caught puking out the window of Thurman's SUV because he was drunk.

Joseph was being profiled when he was caught with some weed.

Steinbach was being profiled when he was caught operating his boat on the ohio river while drunk.

Okay Marv...it all makes sense now.

To be fair, it's not really the race card. White Bengals can't stay off the police blotter either.

If the Cincy PD really is profiling Bungholes, that's good police work. They ought to keep the media guide next to the mugshot book for photo lineups.

Thank you Ron Cook....

Ron Cook: Too many people play blame game
Tuesday, May 29, 2007

By Ron Cook, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Personal accountability got an early jump on the long holiday weekend, shamelessly vanishing Thursday from two different parts of the sports world. It's hard to say what was more despicable. That the father of dead St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Han**** filed suit against just about everyone even though his son was a drunk driver in the automobile accident that killed him in the early hours of April 29? Or that Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis insinuated the nationwide perception that he has a team of criminals is, at least partially, due to profiling by Cincinnati police?

I haven't been this offended since the Stella Liebeck case.

You remember Stella Liebeck, don't you?

She's the Albuquerque, N.M., woman who was awarded $2.9 million by a jury after she sued McDonald's when she was scalded by a 49-cent cup of coffee.

Can't we all look in the mirror, folks?

Just once?

The view from here is Han**** is responsible for his death, no one else. His blood-alcohol level was 0.157, nearly twice Missouri's legal limit, when he rammed into the back of a flatbed tow truck stopped in a driving lane to assist a driver from another accident.

The overwhelming grief Han****'s family must be feeling is understandable, but it doesn't seem right that Dean Han**** has filed suit against a St. Louis restaurant, claiming that its employees kept serving his son drinks even though he was impaired. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the suit alleges that Josh Han**** "regularly became visibly intoxicated" at the restaurant -- that's some admission, isn't it? -- and his intoxication "on said occasion was involuntary." What does that mean? Involuntary? Did the restaurant staff put a gun to Han****'s head and force him to keep drinking? Did the employees force him to go outside and put his key in his sport utility vehicle and drive off?

The elder Han****'s suit also names the tow truck company, the tow truck driver and the other accident victim as defendants, claiming they failed to remove their vehicles to the side of the highway in a timely fashion. The exact time frame is in dispute, but the tow truck had its warning lights flashing, according to the Post-Dispatch. It seems reasonable that Han**** might have been able to avoid the accident if he hadn't been intoxicated, if he hadn't been going 68 mph in a 55 zone and if he hadn't been talking on a his cell phone with a female acquaintance about meeting at another bar. (Han**** was not wearing a seat belt and marijuana was found in his vehicle, although toxicology reports showed he had only alcohol in his system at the time of the accident).

It would be harsh to suggest Han**** got what he deserved, but not by much. Thankfully, he didn't kill someone else, either at the crash scene or on the drive to it.

The story involving Lewis and the Bengals also is disturbing. On an ESPN radio show, Lewis accused the Cincinnati police of profiling his players after troubled wide receiver Chris Henry was pulled over in his vehicle for not signaling a turn. "I think there's profiling, no question," Lewis said.

At the time, it sounded very much like Lewis was playing the race card, but he vehemently denied that later, saying his remarks were in the context of his players being public figures. He also apologized in a statement released by the team and in a private telephone call with the Cincinnati police chief, saying his "comments did not illustrate the high regard I have for the Cincinnati Police Department."

Is that called covering your behind or what?

I don't profess to being an expert on profiling, but I do know if you are doing nothing wrong, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Profiling wasn't the reason nine Bengals were arrested over a nine-month period; poor judgment was. Henry, who has been suspended by the NFL for the first eight games of the 2007 season, was arrested four times, not once in Cincinnati.

Now that the long weekend is over and a new work week has begun, it's nice to think personal accountability will return.

You probably won't want to hold your breath, though.

You know how it works these days.

Why blame yourself when you can blame someone else?
