Yep. Him his brother, and two other guys. The charges were dropped, and he and the other guys sued the city for false arrest, defamation, etc; he missed the first few weeks of training camp in '79 for the trial, won something like $150k.

Oh, I understand now! You can't talk trash on your own team without knowing the facts, but other teams are fair game to trash talk on without knowing facts. Gotchya'

It's one thing if a pro athlete is arrested for rape or a major felony...it's an entirely different matter for disorderly conduct.

Do I need to remind anyone that OJ Simpson was as guilty as Jeffrey Dahmer, but got off?

oh, we can (koopa does all the time) most just choose not to. all other 31 teams are open season in my book. (not to say i'd start bashing ladainian tomlinson if he were arrested for being black though) depends on the player and team.

I have heard nothing bad before about Santonio Holmes. So I wouldn't prejudge him before knowing all the facts. Like Suit said if he was busted for drugs, rape or pointing guns at people like Sean Taylor and Marcus Vick. Then I might throw up some red flags. I bet by the start of the season this thing will have been long forgotten.

your right. it will be forgotten.

didnt max starks get busted for some bar altercation b.s. right after the superbowl? a few weeks before his U.S.O. tour? nobodys talking about that, infact its pretty much been forgotten. how bout marvel smith being busted for pot smoke emminating from his hotel room while in tempe a few years back? didnt hurt us getting to the sb.

believe it or not the steelers actually employ humans.

Forget what?

Seriously, the pedestrian nature of this "crime" is revealed by the fact that Holmes was released after signing a piece of paper promising that he'd show up for court.

I didn't hear about Max Starks. But I do remember about Marvel Smith being busted for pot. Very good point that these players also being human. Some Steelers fans were shocked and ticked at Ben when those pictures hit the net early this year. I made some jokes about the pics. But Ben is 24 year old young man. He isn't doing nothing that alot of other 24 year young men are doing. So nothing to be shocked or mad at.

I'm sure the Steelers did alot of studing about Holme's character before the draft so no worries about Holmes for me. Plus when training camp starts I'm sure Cowher and players like Ward talk to Holmes and tell him since he is a pro athelete he is under and microscope and to avoid future situations like this. But I don't even know the details so I really shouldn't comment on it before knowing the facts.
