    ESPN - "The Herd" - Dolphin fans believe they lost because Jets weren't "moral"

    I was listening to "The Herd" on ESPN earlier today, and Colin Cowherd was talking about some Dolphin fan emails that he received.

    The Dolphin fans believed they lost because the Jets didn't morally do the right thing and suspend Edwards. They believed that the Jets put victories before the image of the team.

    I got pissed because not once did any Dolphin fan stop and realize how stupid and ignorant they sound when whining like this.

    We all know about Ronnie Brown, apparently the Dolphin fans are grasping at straws in light of their loss.

    Cowherd didn't agree with suspending Edwards, and said that morals belongs in a church. Until judicial action is complete, Edwards has every right to play.

    A million threads on this, but another example of how big of a bullseye the Jets are in everyone's eyes - even though they're all hypocrites.

    i guess it wasn't enough that we were playing without Revis, Pace, Jenkins & Holmes. I can't wait to play them at close to full strength in Dec

    I didn't really used to like Cowherd but after having listened to him a little bit he's starting to grow on me. I do appreciate that he isn't a biased jerk, he just tells it like it is. And I agree 100% with his view. I'm glad he's the ONLY guy in the media that seems to be sensible.

    Fact is that NO TEAM has suspended a player for a DUI. We actually just set a significant precedent. Everyone needs to get off our ass. They just want us to fail and that's all it is because they know we're for real and they're just grasping at anything they can to demean us because they certainly can't for our play on the field.... geez how nice is it to say that right now? For once they can't criticize our play on the field but instead throw sh!t at us for petty reasons and holding us to some made up standard that no one expects the 31 other teams to adhere to. It's really just blatantly obvious.... the nation hates the Jets. As if we didn't know this already.

    This offseason one of their players beat his girlfriend...that was pregnant and carrying his child. Don't bring morals into this Dolfags.

    Edit:

    Miami Dolphins' Phillip Merling charged with felony battery on pregnant girlfriend
    July 20, 2010|By Linda Trischitta, Sun Sentinel


    FORT LAUDERDALE The Broward State Attorney's Office has formally charged Miami Dolphins defensive end Phillip Merling with felony battery on his pregnant girlfriend.

    In the early morning hours of May 27, Merling, 25, was arrested at his Weston home by Broward sheriff's deputies for aggravated battery on Kristen Lennon, police said.

    With this charge, police allege that Merling knew or should have known she was pregnant, according to a complaint affidavit.

    The Dolphins defensive end was released on $15,000 bail. He has filed a not guilty plea and a demand for a jury trial. His attorney, Edward J. O'Donnell Jr. of Miami, was in court Monday and not available to comment, an office staffer said.


    Lennon was two months pregnant with the couple's second child, the complaint states, and had redness and swelling to her face and a laceration to her lip the night of Merling's arrest.

    If convicted on the second-degree felony charge, Merling faces up to 15 years in prison, a fine of as much as $10,000 or both, according to Broward State Attorney's Office.

    Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said the team had no comment about Merling and the formal charges that came Friday, other than to say, "He is on our active roster and is one of 80 players under contract in open training camp."

    The NFL could suspend or otherwise punish Merling for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. A league spokesperson said Monday that the NFL is "continuing to review the incident under our personal conduct policy," and has no further comment.

    Merling, who was the first pick of the 2008 draft's second round, enters training camp penciled in as the Dolphins' starting right defensive end.

    A notoriously poor practice performer, Merling began camp as the starter last year before losing the position to Randy Starks after one week of practice.

    This year Merling, a former Clemson standout who has 59 tackles and 3.5 sacks in two seasons, will compete with rookie Jared Odrick, the team's first-round pick, and veterans Tony McDaniel and Lionel Dotson.

    The May arrest became troublesome for the Sheriff's Office when Merling was allowed to leave jail from an exit that bypassed waiting reporters and cameras.

    The special treatment continued when Merling was given a ride home in an unmarked vehicle by a BSO employee.

    "I cannot defend the indefensible," Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti said at the time. "That's just not appropriate. We're not in the business of giving people we arrest for felonies a ride home."

    Sheriff's spokeswoman Dani Moschella said Monday that an Internal Affairs investigation of the courthouse personnel supervisor, Cmdr. Alvin Pollock, continues.

    Pollock was transferred to administration of the agency's fleet service system until the investigation is completed.

    Staff writers Omar Kelly and Sofia Santana contributed to this report.

    If a player on Buffalo gets a DUI, will people call for his head, or will it just be a minor story.

    And I thought this thread was going to be about Westerman and the injury.

    As Rex might put it..."We're going to play Edwards...we're going for the Supe...and we don't care if you like it or not."

    And I thought it had to do with the score of the game.

    But really, the Jets are under no moral obligation to the Dolphins to do anything in regards to player discipline.

    Any fan who complains about the other team's lack of morals is a loser.

    Plus, LOL. The Jets are without Jenkins, Pace, and Revis, and the Fin fans are crying that the Jets didn't bench their starting WR? LOL.

    How bad are the Fins that they need the Jets to be without 4 starters just to have a chance???

    if the just counted the sanchez td they'd be complaining about something else. main problem is that the dolphins fans think the team is better than it actually is. they'll get another dose of reality next week when brady lights them up too.

    Not to mention they had 5 player arrests in the last year alone. It's funny how these Dolphags fans overlook their own team when judging others...

    If I was forced to live in Buffalo, I'd be drunk all the time.

    Didn't Leroy Butler play in the Denver-Atlanta Superbowl after getting arrested the previous evening on prostitution-related charges?
