Prison Blues vs Orange Jumpsuits: Tuesday Night's All Right For Fighting

While the legal troubles for Odell Thurman passed (his charges were dropped three days after they were pressed), no doubt the Bengals organization thought they were okay. Surely the team had learned their lesson, right? Nobody would do anything that stupid again, especially not veteran troublemakers.

Commissioner Roger “B. Goode” Goodell has stated that if Chris Henry gets into any more trouble, that he’ll be banished for life. Here’s hoping Chris learned a lot at the West Fuckin’ Virginia University, because he might be cruising for the permanent banhammer thanks to an incident in which he (along with fellow Bengal/prisoner Reggie McNeal) and another man supposedly hopped out of an Escalade and put the beat down on a 16-year-old boy and his 18-year-old friend.

For the record, Chris, you probably ought to not beat up or hump anybody under the age of 18. You might like ‘em young, but you’re getting a bit of an R. Kelly reputation, and nobody wants that. If this pans out and becomes an official accusation, Keyshawn Johnson might be receiving an offer to be the Bengals' new third wideout.

Prison Blues vs. Orange Jumpsuits 2007: Bengal Pride

Odell Thurman, another one of the nine good citizens on the Bengals who was arrested by the evil racist cops in Cincinnati, has managed to get himself in trouble again. This time, in his home town in Georgia, Thurman is accused of punching two men in an altercation. Thurman was suspended four games last year for skipping a drug test, and was suspended for the rest of the year when he was caught drunk driving.

Now he’s getting arrested for assault. I think it’s time for Odell, who is supremely talented, to go the way of A.J. Nicholson and get a pink slip. Given his prior history, there’s no way Roger Goodell doesn’t drop the hammer on him yet again. Cut your losses, Marvin Lewis. I know it’ll decimate the linebacking corps, but sometimes you have to cut off the foot to save the leg.

Bengals 2 (2 arrests, 2 repeat offender bonuses)
