Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry, currently halfway through an eight-game NFL suspension, is in an Orlando, Fla., courtroom this afternoon because of a probation violation.

Henry is on probation in Orange County, Fla., stemming from a weapons charge there following a incident in January 2006.

Word around the courthouse is that prosecutors are trying to have Henry put in jail, even for a few days, based on the seriousness of the original crime.

Henry pled guilty to the charge and was placed on probation for two years.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Henry for eight games because he violated the league's personal conduct policy.

With the league operating under an unofficial zero tolerance policy for off-field incidents, Henry can not be helping himself if he indeed violated terms of his probation in Florida. Henry must re-apply for reinstatement before he could earn the right to play again.

He had hoped to have his suspension reduced to four games.

Henry played with the Bengals in the preseason and, playing against overmatched defensive backs in the second half of the four exhibition games, led the Bengals in all major receiving categories. He had 14 receptions for 195 yards and two touchdowns.
sirius radio reported henry was cleared of EIGHT parole violation charges and is now free to seek reinstatement. eight??? how could he be framed/ set up/ profiled / misunderstood / in the wrong place at the wrong time, on 8 seperate instances?

between him and pacman, i cant wait til "alien vs. predator WVU" are banned for life.

He might leave on his own, but he won't be fired. You have to remember, consistently going 8-8 is a big upgrade for this franchise and that 11-5 season bought him a lot of wiggle room.

Prior to Lewis, their last winning season was 1990. Here's how they faired in between.

2006 8-8-0
2005 11-5-0
2004 8-8-0
2002 2-14-0
2001 6-10-0
2000 4-12-0
1999 4-12-0
1998 3-13-0
1997 7-9-0
1996 8-8-0
1995 7-9-0
1994 3-13-0
1993 3-13-0
1992 5-11-0
1991 3-13-0
1990 9-7-0

When the NFL Networks buts a whole decade of your team in the Top Ten Worst Teams Ever, you are in pretty bad shape.

Actually.. I am just saddened by it. It shows a total lack of understanding of respect and/or maturity.

This is nihilism at its best. What a shame.

Not surprising, considering most of them went to college solely to play football, become eligible under the NFL's age limit, and boost their draft stock, not to learn.

They went to school to improve their skills in their chosen profession by majoring in football rather than engineering, teaching, accounting, or preparing for non-football grad school.

The NCAA runs the NFL's minor leagues and everyone is quite willing to perpetuate the hypocrisy of calling it "college" football. The system is rotten, not the aspirations of the players who participate in it to learn their trade.

That's why I have always said that no college football player should be allowed to declare himself for the draft until after his junior year. Anything less is too early. And stop educating these kids just to play football!! What's the percentage of current college players who are going to play professionally?? One?...Two percent?

Sorry...didn't mean to get on my soapbox there.

Anyway...as for the Bungles...no disclipline, no sense, no boundaries...all that equals a team that is bound to have chaos.

I agree completely - my previous post sounded more like an indictment of the players themselves rather than the sham that is supposed to be "college" football. The system IS rotten.

I don't agree at all. If the players aren't going to go to college to get an education, why waste their and everyone else's time? It's not like they need a college degree to play football. Let them go straight out of high school if they so choose.

As a fan it isn't the greatest idea, but why should colleges waste time and money on people who don't want/need to be there?
