So it's ok for Ben to rape multiple women, but Chris slaps his girlfriend and is immediately cut? Sounds legit.

BucNY:
Well you only get as much slack as your talent affords you. Plus Ben has never really been convicted of any of that has it? I don't remember off the top of my head.

bucs4eva:
I'm guessing you want us to sign Rainey eh JD? I knew you'd post something about him

Well Rainey wasn't convicted of anything either. He was arrested and charged with slapping his girlfriend....and cut a few hours later.

I just think it's ridiculous. Not that hitting his girl is ok, it certainly isn't...but the double standard is out of this world.

 And no, I don't want us to sign Rainey. I wanted Bobby Rainey, not Chris.

I kind of do too to be honest. As you all should know, Rainey was a beast at Lakeland and Florida. Also, he was a good returner in his rookie season with the Steelers. If it weren't for the behavioral issues the kid would be a perfect fit as our #2 back. But if it weren't for the behavioral issues he wouldn't be on waivers either....

I'd take him... Dbag human being but he can play some ball.

Status plays a role in all aspects of like, JDub. This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. I'm actually surprised that you're surprised.

The Anti-Java:
They jumped the gun on him, league rules say he can't be waived until after the Super Bowl.

chace1986:
Seems he had multiple issues this year. Probably not worth the negative publicity, considering he would probably be a bubble player next year.
