    Default Bengals' Benson Not Suspended

    More Bengal news from "Your Friendly Neighborhood Bungle Basher"...
    ---------------------------

    Benson grateful to Brown, Goodell for hearing his side with no suspension
    7-30-2010
    By GEOFF HOBSON

    GEORGETOWN, Ky. - When Bengals running back Cedric Benson sat down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after his arrest on an assault charge, Goodell took Benson by surprise and told him to map out his NFL experiences.

    [IMGL]http://i28.tinypic.com/o6mx09.jpg[/IMGL]“I never met him before and I think he just wanted to get to know me,” Benson said. “They had a list of the encounters I had on paper and instead of formulating an opinion based on paper, they took the initiative. What’s all on paper is negative. Of course, he could have done the opposite and I really appreciate that.”

    Before practice Friday afternoon here at Georgetown College, Benson indicated Goodell wouldn’t suspend him, a report that later surfaced on ESPN. Benson wasn’t too surprised, considering he felt he was in the right and his head coach had already told the world he had been jumped and sucker-punched.

    Plus the fact that it was Benson that called the police that night in an Austin, Texas bar. And for his troubles he ended up wondering if his career had been blown up again. But when the Bengals ended up coming to his defense, he was relieved and he feels that puts the exclamation point on the journey he explained to Goodell in his New York office.

    “He’s got my back,” said Benson of Bengals president Mike Brown. “When I got arrested, I was nervous. I thought I was going to get the same kind of reaction from this team that I got in Chicago. I was just amazed at how different it was. They took the time to look into the facts. Just took more of an initiative. We’re not just invested for what the type of player you are. What you can give us on the football field? But, we are invested in you as a person. That’s the impression I got. You can’t ask for more than that.”

    Benson had a rough go in Chicago as the the fourth overall pick in 2005 and it ended when he was arrested on two alcohol-related charges in the spring of ’08. But the circumstances were so shaky that a Texas grand jury didn’t indict him. Benson told Goodell just how different it is with the Bengals.

    “I explained to him a little bit of my situation in Chicago,” Benson said. “And how when I first got there they weren’t really welcoming and some of the players felt they shouldn’t draft me. I was kind of expressing how it’s night and day. Not only from the staff and (management), but the players as well between here and Chicago.”

    Benson, in the last year of his deal, has made no bones about wanting to return to the Bengals. Especially now. He was made aware of Brown’s comments earlier this week in which Brown praised Benson for how he had carried himself here since he signed early in the 2008 season.

    “It makes you feel at home,” Benson said. “It makes you feel good about what you’re doing here, working in this town, working for an owner like Mike. It makes you feel good. It brings out the best in you truly.”

    He's been in trouble before.... That's why Chicago cut him and the Bengals signed him....

    More like 53 clown, no rings ever circus.

    They let Young off too. Plus I haven't heard anything about that lineman from Indy either. No consistency from Goodell. Not that I expected any.

    Well yeah but there is also a theory that the Rooney's themselves had a hand in the punishment. If you think about it, it could make sense that they wanted to give him punishment to chill the fans a bit and also teach Ben a lesson. Who knows but in don't think they ever intended on setting a precedent with this and suspend every other player because of a weekend that got out of control.

    I guess the same thing to say is anything is really possible especially with Goodell as Commish. Look at the way he's handled everything since becoming a Commish. absolutely no consistency whatsoever. The guy is a ****ing hack and it started with him turning the cheek at the Patriots and Bill Belichick

    I didn't really take that as Les calling me out because I wasn't inferring that it was race related at all. In fact if it was race related that would denote some consistency. I just think race is such a touchy subject that it is a no win situation and the reason we don't get into it here. I guess in am in trouble now!
