Default odell thurman suspended another year

Even before the Bengals held their first team meeting of the season, the NFL stunned them with Thursday's decision to lengthen Odell Thurman's suspension for another year, according to a Bengals press release. He may reapply for reinstatement after the 2007 season.

Thurman had been expecting to be reinstated in time for the start of training camp, which opens Thursday with the Bengals reporting in preparation for Friday's first practice. For the past month, Safarrah Lawson, one of Thurman's representatives, has been saying that Thurman met all the requirements of the league's substance abuse policy.
LOL. they tacked on another year just for him being an idiot i guess. i bet chris henry puked as soon as he heard the news.

poor bunglefans. thats what they get for wishing a suspension on good guy joey porter for performing a community service.

Default Odell Thurman Denied Reinstatement

This is the biggest bull**** I've ever seen. Odell Thurman has to sit out 2 years for failing two drug tests? He already served his one year suspension...let him back in the league already.

This is ridiculous...Pac Man paralyzes someone and no telling what else and gets a year suspension. Odell Thurman fails a couple of drug tests and is basically banned for life? And you can't tell me he's done anything worse than Chris Henry.

Roger Goodell needs to get the stick out of his @$$.

LOL, this is excellent news.

I would say this decision might make Chris Henry think twice before he decides to get arrested again, but it's Chris Henry.

Was there a specific reason why the suspension was extended? Did he violate the terms of his possible reinstatement going into 2007?

hes probably still drinking and got caught. i bet you marvin lewis had a 12 pack on ice to welcome him back to the team.

goodell is on a roll today though. he also told adam jones he cant come to training camp.

Well let's see the scumbags list.....

In the 06 season he was suspended the first four games for violating the substance abuse policy.

Later in 06 he was arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired. He blew a .17 (more than twice the legal limit).

On June 5 of 07 he was wanted for assault. Those charges were conveniently 'dropped'.

or the bengals need to just stop drafting scum.

but i agree...throw henry, jones, thugman, and vick out of the league for good, and then let the law deal with them in an appropriate manner.

I probably left out another arrest or two on the P.O.S. Feel free to add on if there are more.

I have the feeling that this wouldn't have happened had Vick not gotten into trouble.
