Reacting to the latest Bengal arrest, Carson Palmer released a statement on the Bengal's website today:"It has to stop," Palmer said hours after he heard the news. "If it doesn't stop, we're not going to have any fans left and I don't blame them. It's ridiculous. We can't get through a month without getting a guy arrested. It happens on another team and they're shocked and surprised to hear about it. With us, you hear about it and it doesn't surprise you and you just shake your head and say, 'Another one.' "
"Talent isn't everything, and we've got talent but we're sitting home for a reason and we have to do something about it."
What set Palmer off and put the Bengals back in the crosshair of jokes came overnight Monday when Joseph was arrested in Boone County, Kentucky overnight on a marijuana possession charge.
Joseph became the ninth Bengal to be arrested since Dec. 15, 2005.
Really? I thought 4 years at SUC would have prepared Palmer well for playing on a football team that gets frequent flier points with the local bail bondsman.
BTW, Carson, you shouldn't worry about losing fans. I mean 1) all the arrests at your alma mater didn't stop all the lemmings jumping on the bandwagon; and 2) are there really Bengal fans out there?
Maybe the Bengals can become our new savior by coming to get KD to clean up house. I mean, he can't coach worth shit, but hey, he'll make sure your team doesn't turn into the Raiders or SUC. It's not like the Bengals win anyway, so at least they would solve one problem.
