    Ehhhh, great. They're finally getting around to this. I guess it was a matter of time.

    If there's a criminal attorney on the board, can you verify that there is such a thing as misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. Seems like if you assault someone with a deadly weapon that it would constitute a felony. :icon_shrug:

    That was the first thing that caught my attention too. Maybe they concluded it was 'accidental' or otherwise lacking malicious intent or something. I thought I read somewhere that the bottle was "dropped"... m'kay....

    Does Cro have any kind of existing rap sheet? If not, depending on the severity of the charges he could get off with as little as a hefty fine, community service and a long probation. I wonder if a little jail time would give this knucklehead a clue before he completely destroys his career and his future. It's hard to pay child support for seven kids when you are flipping burgers!....idiot!

    Yea no kidding. Doesn't get much stupider. Is it too much to ask to keep yourself out of trouble for at least the football season, especially when things are going your way?

    Just the fact that these asshats were out partying it up like they won something just pisses me off. So unfocused. You haven't won ****. Act like it *******.

    Don't get me started on the 7 kids he has. You would think after the 3rd or 4th one with different women he might start thinking about using a rubber. Nope. DUMB AS A BRICK.

    And the Patriots will probably pick him up and watch him go back to Pro Bowl caliber and stay out of trouble.

    (That's not an endorsement to keep him, I'm just being cynical)

    It's a bit like Moss at NE...sometimes these guys with inflated egos need to see their career right on the line before shaping up.

    Oh and as an aside, did everything start to go wrong for Cromartie once he let Neon Deion tell him he was the next big thing? Stupid Sanders, it's fine that he's got a big ego, he doesn't need to go around giving it to other guys.

    AJ's 1st round picks the last 5 years.

    05' Merriman - Steroids, off the field issues, injuries.
    05' Castillo - Decent player, but lots of injuries, and is not quite worth his huge contract.
    06' Cromartie - Inconsistant to say the least. Off the field issues.
    07' Davis - Complete bust.
    08' Cason - Lost the nickle role to Gregory, getting minimal playing time right now.
    09' English - ??? To early to tell, but I like him so far.


    In AJ we trust? I give him a solid C+ in the first round in recent years.

    Intent, degree of injury and the intensity of a charged assault would all figure into it. The bottle was apparently thrown, causing slight injury. Cro may not even have been targeting anyone in particular, just throwing it in an angry gesture. If he had swung the bottle when he hit him, the charges would likely be different, since he would have creased the guys skull.

    Was it really worth it? Was the champagne really that good like a Louis Roederer Cristal, or was it Andre' Cold Duck?...

    Well said.

    But what breaks my heart is that Merriman has that natural born talent to be a Seau/Lewis type of team leader. Much like those guys, not only is Merriman great but he make everybody else around him great!!!

    Then again... Lewis rebounded from the possibility of going to prison.
    Difference... despite of what happened (or didn't) that night, the jury pleaded not guilty. Since then, he's put it behind him, faced the consequences (from fans and media), and has continued to kick major a**!!!

    Merriman... Are you going to step up and face these obstacles or tuck your head between your legs and kiss your a** good-bye?

    I like to think that Shawne will sort it all out and keep out of trouble from now on. Man, I hope we keep him here...

    If Ray Lewis can do it (and still continue to be a major impact player)... what's Shawne's excuse?

    For the Cromartie haters, he has the same problems now that Jammer did for his first 4 or 5 years here. Jammer was a physical specimin that people thought would suit better at saftey, he often got lost in coverage and beat deep, and sooner or later the mental side caught up with the physical gifts and now he's a shut down corner.

    I think it'd be stupid for AJ to let Cromartie walk if he can continue to get better like he has recently, but another relapse like last season and ****em'.

    Yeah, give us Cro, we'll straighten him out.

    We'll also turn him into an arrogant jerk that doesn't shake hands after the game, though?

    I guess not shaking hands is better than assualt with a deadly weapon...........

    So far he's given no excuses. Since the Tila incident he's been fine IMO. What exactly are you implying with your "what's Shawne's excuse?" comment?
