That's all I need to hear. Contrary to the ignorant nonsense you might hear about me thinking "OSU is God" or whatever, I want Holmes off the team. He never pulled this shit before, and now that he has, I don't feel he should be treated any differntly than any of these other POS players who THINK they can get away with anything.

Sign and trade. Hell, the Bengals are probably chomping at the bit right now...

wow. i wouldnt go that far yet, but being that w. reid may have beat him out on the depth chart in training camp anyways, im not too worried. i say we give our #1 pick a chance. especially since we traded up, only to pass on a possible superstar in lendale white. to think that s. holmes did cost the steelers l. white + ko simpson, and possibly, m robinson does make you scratch your head. i agree with the poster who said not being with the team in mini camps and ota's has hurt him.

Does anyone know who Holmes' agent is? If it is someone like Rosenhaus (who has ties to the south Florida ball player community) then I doubt there is much hope in the agent talking Holmes out of career suicide.

OTOH, if it is someone who can attempt to reason with the kid (although that probably is less likely with someone who already has such lack of self-control that he already has three kids out of wedlock) a deal hopefully can be struck with the Columbus DA and whichever mom he roughed up last night, after which they hire whoever wrote Ben's mea culpa last week to do a "forgive me Steelers Nation" press release, get Holmes to Pittsburgh to work out at the team facilities for the next month, and then hope he has is done acting out his vision of what a NFL first round choice does and gets down to business.

I know the party line is he never had problems before, but do not underestimate the ability of boosters at a high powered program such as (but of course not only) OSU to sweep a lot of dirt under the rug.

The three kids (if nothing else it shows the moron does not have enough sense to protect himself) should have set off warning signs for the Steelers.

Searching the Internet for Holmes' Wonderlic - will post if located.

This kid is really working his way into the dog house. I know and understand that we don't know the specifics but, come on at least space out your incidents and make it seem like your not a problem child. The situation is up in the air, but don't these kids even know what they are up against?

There seems to be conflicting reports. One that the "alleged" victim wasn't harmed, the other saying she was. If Holmes did physically abuse her, then why, oh why, would she request he be released at the arraignment? If some guy abused me, there is no amount of money that would keep me from pressing charges, and I sure as hell wouldn't want him near me again. I just want to slap some of these women! Don't they have any respect for themselves? Guh!
