Recommended Posts

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/chi-0...1,2708780.story

hmmm...3:30 in the a.m...drive your $350k car into a post...vanish...mebbe had a few drinks, anyone think?

This part from the article is important:

The vehicle had not been reported stolen, Whittier said.

Has not been reported stolen YET! A few more hours, and that may change.

Nothing bizarre here, just more of the same. Drunk NFL player cracks up sports car in the middle of the night. In fear of how Goodell will deal with his drunk and disorderly behavior (see: Thurman, Odell and Henry, Chris) in a free agent year, he abandons car and has a friend pick him up.

Today, every reporter in Chicago is looking for 1) a bartender at the club he left at 2:45, or 2) the video from the tollbooth he drive through showing he's at the wheel.

From what Chicago sports talk said this morning, he should thank God he's alive after what he did to the car.

He also better pray the media (and then Goodell) can't place him behind the wheel of that car.

If that was a Bengals' players' car, how huge would the outcry be today?

Bears have had damn near as many legal run-ins, but their organization gets a pass. Hypocrites is as hypocrites do.

I can only think of Tank Johnson, which has been covered quite a bit. Additionally, they've not yet proven that he was driving the thing, nor what the hell happened. So let's hold off on the accusations.

Local reports say there are three clues found at the site:

-- a pack of "doctored cigarettes."

-- a torn piece of a Bengals jersey with the letters "Ode" on it.

-- vomit on the passenger side door.

Accusations?

You think the media would restrain itself were that a Bengals car in that situation? Seriously?

And, prior to Tank, there two more gun issues with them last year in August as I recall (different players). There's been other stuff too.

Oh trust me, nobody in Chicago has heard about or cares about Michael Vick today (lucky dogs). The only story in Chicago today is their moron, Briggs.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Why teh hell is any millionare driving himself?????

I now offer my serves to any NFL player to be their personal driver. You want to be out until you close down the bar? No Prob, by me a Coke and I'll wait in the car. Need someone to drive you and the 3 hookers somewhere and not say anything, no prob. Just cover what I usually make at my regualr job and hire me full time.

MORONS.

Any player that wrecks a car after it's dark is a MORON.

So what's your conspiracy theory here, that the national media just hates poor little Cincinnati? If the players brought extra attention to themselves, it's their doing. Did the Bears manage to get 10 players arrested in a year? I don't know, but I doubt it.

November '05, brawl at shooting range leads to FBI investigation:

Tank Johnson one man army thing

Now this. My God, a team out of control. We all live in fear. There's been other stuff too, that's just the highlights.

My point stands, yes, the media is hypocritical. Hell, even the stats they shout about the Bengals' arrests are not true as to timeframe or numbers. The MNF crew just f**ked it up again tonite.

Per the MNF update mid-first-quarter Briggs was driving and has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident...

...gee, wonder why? :wine:

Nah, it was just, like, for him a wrecked Lambo isn't worth it, so why bother with it? It's like when you're 17 and your car drops its transmission on the road and you just walk off. On a relative basis, it's about the same, right?

I dunno, a $600k Lambo here, a $600k Lambo there, pretty soon you're talking about real cars, right? :lmao:

They found 'em...

I don't know what's worse. The bartender dropping a dime on him, or the fact the car was just 3 weeks old!

Unlike "Under Cover Brother", Lance can't drive. Truth be told, in real life neither can Under Cover Brother! :lol::rolleyes::P

Now that brother REALLY knows how to go high dollar when he prangs a brand new super luxury sports car!

My favorite part of the story?

Immediately after the accident Briggs called the police and reported the car was stolen. He's since admitted that he called them back almost as quickly....ten to 30 minutes....and admitted that he was driving and had left the scene.

No word yet about whether Briggs initially claimed the car had been stolen by a black man with a gun, but that's the punchline I'm hoping for.
