Aqib Talib Suspended

August 31st, 2010

The news just keeps pouring out of One Buc Palace today. NFL warden commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib for one game due to his incident last year with a cabbie.

Last summer, following a night out with teammates to celebrate the end of training camp, Talib belted a cabbie in the head as the vehicle they rode in sped down I-275 in St. Petersburg.

The cab driver spoke candidly with Joe about the details shortly after the incident.

So, no Talib, who is in the midst of a pretrial intervention program, when the Bucs host Cleveland to open the season.

    well its against the browns, so i guess we can survive that one!! i mean, with barber, biggers and lewis i think we can play well against cleveland!!

  2. sensiblefan Says:

    WHAT THE HELL MAN! That was LAST year! What ever happened to the 6th amendment right to a speedy trial?!?!? lol

  3. Steve from Oregon Says:

    As much as we could use him in that game, this suspension is completely reasonable. I really really hope that this is a wake up call for him to get his off the field issues straightened out.

  4. Ash Says:

    I wish he was out for a game vs somebody like the Saints or Ravens. A game we would probably lose anyway. I want him on the field for the Browns, we need that game.

  5. bucfanjeff Says:

    Wasn’t the case dismissed and adjudication withheld?

    Against the Browns..I’d like to think if ANY game was a good game, it was this one or the Rams.

    Well that sucks! Thanks a lot warden Goodell!

  7. Daron Says:

    I’m confused. I don’t agree with what he did, but Shaun Rogers didn’t get suspended and he was arrested for having a loaded gun in an airport.

    we beat the Saints

  9. the_buc_realist Says:

    2-14 looks more realistic every day

  10. Ash Says:

    @goodfellajay, yes we did but the Saints are still one of the better teams we play this year

    Why punish the current team for something that happened LAST preseason?? This is bullsh*t , man….

  12. ZeroExpectations Says:

    How did he only get one game for puncging a cab driver in the back of the head on the bridge going across Tampa Bay?

    What if the driver flipped the car inot the bay?

    Either way, Talib should count his lucky stars that he only got ONE game from punching a Cab Driver in the back of his head. Period.

    Radio Mushmouth said “Why punish the current team for something that happened LAST preseason?? This is bullsh*t , man….”

    Have you ever BEEN a part of a team? You set an example, and put pressure on the other players to police themselves, and each other, building a spirit of discipline and drive.

    Not bullshi*t…Discipline. You sound like you should be a 1990s Cowboys fan.

  14. Dave Says:

    Glad it is only 1 game, but I thought he was clear of that and there would be no suspension. Oh Well. Get’s Mack and Biggers some playing time to see what they got against Cleveland.

  15. oar Says:

    1990’s Dallass Cowboys were South America’s Team! You know, back when they called a Cowboy’s huddle a drug ring!

  16. Eric S Says:

    This sucks. This suspension should have come last season. Come on. The threat of suspension hung over the team like a fog last season. Now it is seeping into this season. This just plain stinks.

  17. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Discipline that is 1 year late Skookum , you moron.

    This is just sad but it is too common in this younger generation. Our society is falling to pieces and it includes our sports stars. I grew up watching Lee Roy Selmon, Scott Brantley, Batman Woods, Gimmie Giles, Kevin House, Rickey Bell and the likes. I never heard any negative things about any of those guys much less criminal. I wish his punishment did not have to affect the team and fans but more than that I wish people would wake up and start having some self control so that this sort of thing would not keep occurring. I guess it is just a sign of the times 🙁

  19. eric Says:

    whoops, Cleveland just looks a lot better +3.

    Hey Mush:

    Wow, the butthurt makes you lash out, huh?

    Maybe you should just pipe down while adults are talking, or we’ll send you back to the card table in the basement at Thanksgiving this year.

    This is total BS and Goodell licks Balls. He should have suspended Aqib last season. Whata POS Commissioner D Bag, @$$wipe, turd-burglar, Cockbite, D!ckbreath, moron, pedophile, Scumbag, jerkoff. Man this sucks. That butthead purposely tried to screw our team, and should have done this before. I hate Goodell. He sucks balls, licks @$$, eats $h!t for breakfast. I hate that POS MF CS DH F AW NG SMF!!!!

  22. BigMacAttack Says:

    This sucks and how unfair to pull this crap so late. Did I mention I hat that MF POS CS Commisioner! What a POS MF. I’d like to punch that POS right in his face.

  23. BigMacAttack Says:

    I had a great day and now I’m totally pissed off. This sucks. F@@k Goodell. He is one sorry MF’r. Brett Favre emails some chick pictures of his schlong and Goodfag doesn’t do $h!t about it. The Buc should appeal this or have a judge grant an injunction like they did for the William’ses. Whata Sorry MF’r that Goodqueer POS @SSwipe is.

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    F this. We have entirely too many MF’n rules in this country. We have a GD rule or law for everything, and then there is a tax on top of it. Then we have a tax for the tax. I’m sick and tired of everybody F’n with the common man, and I’m sick of that MF’r Goodferry suspending players all the time for BS. That is why we have a legal system and Courts, so that people get trials and can defend their actions. F this crap. Who the F@@k does he think he is? God? Does he think he’s GOd? Walks on water? never made a mistake in his life? I’m telling you that Hypocrite MF is going to hell. He passes judgment on everybody. They violate Coaches and Player’s right to frre speech.

    Okay, I’m good now, but this sucks balls, and so does Goodfyukhead.

  25. RustyRhino Says:

    BIGMACATTACK let it all out brother!!!!! I’d love to hear this rant, makes me SMILE and recall my own verbal bursts!!(yoga works for me) It sucks what can we do? Goober Goodall is a peice of work for sure. I’m just glad it is only 1 game not 2-3…

  26. SkookumSmitty Says:

    I think that might be satire…But on this site it is sometimes hard to tell.

  27. eric Says:

    I hope it is satire, otherwise I am sleeping with a gun under my pillow…………

  28. RustyRhino Says:

    @ eric
    I sleep with my 9mm and my wife has her 40 under our pillows every night.. way it is out here in AZ…

  29. BigMacAttack Says:

    Yeah, that may have been just a wee bit excessive.

    Anyway, Sweet Dreams eric and make sure the Safety is in the OFF position. I keep my KABAR close at night, and have well trained Dogs, oh yeah, and my trusty old M40 for what gets away from the hounds. I guess I’m just a redneck, but I don’t live in a trailer anymore, I swear.
