Bengals' Special Delivery

Recommended Posts

He's probably the team supplier. I mean, if I played in Cincy, I'd want to be stoned all day too.

Ok. I guess I'm being dense here but I don't get this at all. :???:

I've read a couple of articles about this and saw it being discussed on NFL channel. What am I missing?

Quotes from article:

Police said a package containing 2 1/2 pounds of marijuana was delivered from Eureka, Calif., to the suburban Kentucky home of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson on Tuesday, where authorities say they conducted a search and found six more pounds of marijuana inside.

They had it all set up to receive supplies of high-grade marijuana from Northern California, and from there, it was being distributed from that residence," LaNier told California Watch.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said he had heard rumors of the bust but had no further comment.

"There’s nothing of substance in the development of rumors that we’re aware of," he said. "There’s nothing to hang a hat on at this point."

If they found six lbs of pot why is this noting but an unsutantiated rumor, and why was he not prosecuted?

They were talking about this on JMV yesterday afternoon the guy who JMV had on said one of the major contributing factors to why the Bengals always have people in trouble is because of how cheap their owner is. His scouting department is so bare bones that they can not even do basic background checks like other teams do. So they may know this guy is good at football, but they do not know if the guy is in * in his life outside of football.

It explains a lot when you really cannot look into a players personal life and see who he is. It is one thing to have a knuckle head or have someone do something stupid because you are going to have 50+ guys on a team. One is bound to do something stupid, but when you repeatedly have guys in trouble there is definitely a problem.

EDIT: It blocks out id10t? Really? That is a bit much.

Cool, another person thrown in a cage and stripped of his freedom over a silly plant.

These bureaucrats need to be strung up from the tallest tree and burned while they strangle at the business end of the rope. Sick freaks that will do anything to keep their perverted bureaus alive. "National Marijuana Initiative"...lol right..

Yeah Benson is in trouble too, but I believe he is appealing it. These Bengals are *. Pretty consistently too. I wonder if the team has three or four jail cells on reserve at all the local facilities.

Nope, no reason to have that much unless you distribute. Regardless of ones opinions, until the laws change, one cannot excuse such foolish endeavors. Especially being run out of a home owned by a guy that makes way more than anyone needs to simply get by.

I will say, however, that if the penalty for speeding was to have your foot chopped off, than we would likely rise up and put a stop to such egregious penalties. As it is with weed, the penalties outweigh the crime. Despite the federal governments claims, nothing brings their wrath more than people making money without them getting a cut.

It was estimated that in 2009, just from the revenue generated from illicit sales of marijuana, if legal, the government of California alone could have gathered upward of 1 billion dollars in taxes.

For a state that is broke to the point where they cannot fund their schools ($42 billion deficit), yet they can dump $150 million annually into combating the existence of a harmless plant, what are we thinking as a nation? Where do our priorities lay?

Simpson is being allowed to play. What a joke. The NFL rolls around in hypocrisy like a pig in mud.

That's just Goodell being Goodell

    • Brissett's already better than he was in 2017.  2017 Brissett doesn't deliver in the red zone the way this year's version does.   He's learning.  It'll take awhile before he's got his game fully under control but he is learning.
    • We are indeed young.  That said, the team has looked competitive so far.  It's a long shot, but if we avoid making major mistakes, we could be contenders this year.  I'm certainly not going to concede anything without a fight, that's for darn sure.
    • Gee, it couldn't be more clear. We have as good a run blocking line as there is.  Your coach says we are going to Run the Damn Ball. Simple.   Think Seahawks and you will get it.   NOTHING is happening in just a few weeks. We are young.
    • As a colts fan from up north, Im not really familiar with the colts media, can y'all recommend some good reporters to follow on twitter for team news ?
    • I agree I'd like to get Campbell more involved, it's going to come down to Brissett establishing a comfort level with him.  Right now that's the big thing holding the team back, is that Brissett is still getting comfortable with the team's receiving corps.    One of the reasons TY is getting so many balls thrown his way is because TY is one of the holdovers from Brissett's run in 17 and there's some residual comfort factor there.   I think that'll work itself out given time. Brissett's just gonna get comfortable with some of his younger options.   That said, if we're in the playoff hunt at the deadline I do think Ballard is going to make a move for a veteran target.  We don't have a lot of physicality in our receiver corps, especially without Funchess.  With a non-elite QB I see that as a need that will have to be addressed.
