Green Bay Packer accused of acting like Minnesota Viking
First it was Spencer Havner crashing his motorcycle, possibly after knocking a couple back. Then Johnny Jolly violated his probation and got accused of dealing drugs. Now Brandon Underwood is a sexual-assault suspect.
Could we get training camp started early before we lose our entire roster to boredom, bad judgment and plain old stupidity?
Rape is a very serious accusation, which is why I’m not going to make any jokes like “Why couldn’t it have been Jarrett Bush?” or “Well, I guess he did learn something from watching all that film of Ben Roethlisberger after all.” No, sir. Just because the players we root for sometimes exercise poor impulse control doesn’t mean we, as bloggers, must do the same. Also, Bush is pretty decent on special teams.
Charges have yet to be filed, but the Journal-Sentinel beat writers have already looked into the matter and concluded that Underwood is guilty, at a minimum, of not being Packer People:
When apprised that the investigation centered on Underwood, 23, several players who wished to remain anonymous said he had been a problem since he was drafted in the sixth round in 2009 out of Cincinnati. Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt talked last season about Underwood being immature early in his rookie season.
It’s amazing/depressing to look at how hard a guy like Al Harris is working to stay in the league, and then turn around and look at how hard so many young, healthy guys are working to get themselves tossed out of it.
