  • BENGALS FANS BUY BILLBOARDS TO ATTACK OWNERSHIP

    Posted by Josh Alper on November 12, 2008, 2:10 p.m. EST

    A group of Bengals fans have rented space on four billboards around Cincinnati to plead with the team to make changes to the managerial structure. One of them reads “Dear Bengals, Hire a general manager. Love, your fans.”

    The billboard buyers are trying to raise funds to keep the messages up via a website called WhoDeyRevolution.com. They hope to raise $4,500 and are taking donations through the site. It’s the second phase of what they’re calling “Project Mayhem,” whose two stated goals are disrupting the natural order of Mike Brown’s Bengals and reducing Mike Brown’s profits. The first phase was calling the team’s “jerk line,” designed for reporting unruly behavior at Bengal games, and reporting Brown as a jerk.

    As you can tell from the billboard, it is Brown’s refusal to bring other voices into the decision-making process they find particularly galling. “18 seasons of Mike Brown making football decisions have led the Bengals to a record of 98-183, the worst winning percentage of all professional sports teams over that stretch,” they write. “Einstein’s famous quote “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” should be framed and put above the door to Mike Brown’s office.”

    • WARREN SAPP CALLS KEYSHAWN JOHNSON “A BITCH”

      Posted by Michael David Smith on November 12, 2008, 7:11 p.m.

      On this week’s installment of Showtime’s Inside the NFL, Warren Sapp uses some rather colorful language to describe his former teammate, Keyshawn Johnson.

      Sapp was asked during the show’s “Ask Warren Anything” segment whether he would watch Johnson’s reality show about interior design.

      Per NFL.com, Sapp answered, “Me, watch Keyshawn on an interior decorating show? Keyshawn, I knew you were a bitch. And thanks for making it all clear.”

      Wow.

      Sapp and Johnson were Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates from 2000 to 2003. This is far from the first time Sapp has criticized Johnson; he has previously referred to him as a “malcontent” and has assessed Keyshawn’s skills as a wide receiver by saying, “Keyshawn said, ‘Give me the damn ball,’ and he averaged 8 yards a catch. That’s not even a first down! . . . I watched him work. I watched him come out of the huddle and go the wrong way.”

      But Sapp hasn’t previously used such colorful language to describe Johnson. At least not publicly.

      Sapp also addressed the reports that he’s making a pain of himself on Dancing With The Stars.

      “I’ll tell you what,” Sapp said. “I have to be honest about the diva thing. I am a little eccentric at times. I like cold water and in California they like it room temperature. And as a 300-pound man I needed a little cold water. So they gave me a big cooler and they put “Warren’s Water,” so I guess that’s where they get that from. If a big fella needing cold water is being a diva, then diva I am.”

      But apparently Sapp thinks it’s better to be a diva than a bitch.

        Is that true? If so, that's just odd IMO.

          Yeah I'm not a room temperature water fan either. I wonder if they just handed them those water bottles you can get at Cosco unrefrigerated and he wanted to have his chilled. I would probably prefer it that way too...

            I'm kind of a freak about my drinks. I need them ice cold. Can hardly drink milk without ice in it.

              • LAWYERS SUE PACMAN

                Posted by Mike Florio on November 13, 2008, 1:18 p.m. EST

                Gone (for now) but hardly forgotten, suspended Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones has yet another legal challenge.

                He’s being sued by his lawyers.

                Per TMZ.com, Pacman allegedly owes $23,000 in legal fees. Though TMZ doesn’t name the lawyer(s) who have sued Pacman, one of them likely is Manny Arora, who severed his agent relationship with Jones several weeks ago.

                UPDATE: The fine folks at TMZ.com tell us that the lawyers suing Jones are located in Las Vegas, the site of one of Pacman’s various legal entanglements.

                    • UNVEILING THE BONG-AND-COKE PHOTO

                      Posted by Mike Florio on November 13, 2008, 8:45 p.m.

                      We never dreamed that there would be such an uproar regarding the story of an NFL player who had an image of himself land on a family member’s Facebook page. The player in question doesn’t have a high degree of name recognition, and we badly underestimated the degree of curiousity it would create.

                      We were concerned initially about posting the photo and identifying the player because our information was based only on our source, and because it wasn’t obvious that the player was who we were told he was. We have since obtained information from two more sources, so we’re now confident that we can post the photo without fear of getting the NFLPA treatment in a court of law.

                      But we post the photo and identify the player with this disclaimer — the picture appeared on the Facebook page of his younger sister, and she has since claimed that she Photoshopped it. (An if it’s truly Photoshopped, then we should fire Taco Bill and hire her.)

                      We’re also told that the player is not in trouble with his team. (That said, another source said that the picture was taken down only after the team became aware of it.)

                      The player in question is Eagles cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, a 2008 fourth-round draft pick who tore an ACL in January and who has been shelved for his rookie year. He was regarded as a potential first-round selection before being injured, even with pending criminal charges arising from the theft of an Xbox (the old kind, not a 360). He reached a plea deal in the days leading up to the draft, but the arrangement cratered when his brother, also charged in the incident, refused to accept it.

                      Here’s the photo. He’s the guy on the right with his hand over his mouth, Photoshopped or otherwise. (And as several readers have pointed out, the powder apparently are crushed up pills — most likely aspirin — and not cocaine. We’ll defer to Matt Jones of the Jags for a final ruling.)

                            He has 3,155 yards on the year.

                            He is on pace for 5,048 yards this year.

                            He has to be considered an MVP candidate....the Cards are 7-3.

                              Tenn is 10-0 but the Cards might actually be the first team to clinch a division. San Fran is in second place with a 3-7 record.

                                Yep. He's looking like the Warner of old again. I'd have to say he's the best QB in the NFL right now.
