Talking From Cinci: this week the winner is.......Odell Thurman!!!

Bengals LB Thurman accused of assault

NFL.com wire reports



CINCINNATI (June 5, 2007) -- Suspended Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman has been accused of kicking and hitting two men in his Georgia hometown during the weekend. He has not been charged with a crime, but a magistrate will hear testimony June 8 to determine if charges should be filed.

The NFL suspended Thurman for the first four games of 2006 after he skipped a drug test. The suspension was extended to a full season following his arrest on a drunken driving charge in September. Thurman is one of nine Cincinnati players to be arrested in the past year.

Two men filed a complaint June 3 with police in Monticello, Ga., southeast of Atlanta, accusing Thurman of assaulting them early June 3 following an argument at a home, Jasper County Chief Magistrate Ken Jackson said. The men accused Thurman's brother, Willie Thurman, of threatening them with a gun.

"Evidently, this was some type of party in the wee hours of the morning," Jackson said.

Because the allegations were not reported quickly and police were unable to conduct an immediate investigation, Jackson said, a county magistrate will hear testimony to determine if anyone should be charged.

Messages seeking comment were left with Odell Thurman's agent and with the NFL.

Thurman pleaded no contest to the drunken driving charge in February. Last Friday, a judge in Cincinnati suspended all but six days of a 90-day sentence and ordered Thurman to serve those six days at a treatment center.

Thurman played two seasons at Georgia and was drafted by Cincinnati in the second round of the 2005 draft. He led the Bengals in tackles that season with 148.

Thurman can apply for reinstatement for this coming season, although earlier this year coach Marvin Lewis refused to talk about whether Thurman still figured in the team's plans.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team had no comment on the latest allegations.

"His situation is controlled by the league, he's not officially on our roster," Brennan said. "Since his possible reinstatement is in the league's hands, we would defer any comment to the league."

IOW, they've run out of excuses.

I can't stand it. Please make it stop. It's like a train wreck that gets worse and worse. It's incredible. The team has enough distractions as it is.

The Thurmanator strikes again!!!
It starts with the little things like getting kicked off your college team for selling your SEC Championship ring.

in other news carson shows what a team "leader" he is:

Quote:
Palmer and other veterans have urged Lewis to crack down on players who refuse to act responsibly. Palmer reiterated during minicamp that the Bengals have enough talent to be a title contender, if they can get their act together.

"We can be one of the better teams in this league, and we should be one of the better teams in this league,'' he said. "We just need to go out there and play like it.''

Although it's important for the team's leaders to speak out, Palmer knows that it's ultimately up to the troubled players to change their lives and the team's image.

"I mean, there's only so much you can say,'' Palmer said. "Nobody needs to hear, 'Hey, don't do anything illegal.'

"Some guys made some bad decisions and decisions they wish they could have back, but there's nothing you can really say (to them). You can state the obvious, but that doesn't really do anything.''
uhmmm... it does show leadership.

way to go carson, you puss. he must be afraid of getting his ass kicked.

Mmmm....yep, yep. But that's the number 3 QB in the league after Brady and Manning. And yet the worst people can say about Ben is that he took a couple of verbal potshots at the old regime. Amazing how good we have it. I'd rather have that than a spineless wuss as my franchise QB. He still doesn't get it.
