    After seeing the pics I can’t see why Clemens son and his friend are only suing for 200,000…should be more like 2,000,000.

    If there is video and the guys story is true the bouncer who did that belongs in the slammer.

    But there are two sides to every story. So the boys were not drunk which is certainly in their favor but not being there we do not know what else precipitated the event. Could have been a “discussion” that got out of hand.

    If the bouncer was really jacked and big could have been a case of ‘roid rage.

    Yeah like we actually believe Clemons son got the crap beat out of him for NOTHING, guaranteed he used the old Phuck you I’m not moving do you know who I am card and the bouncers were like yes we do here take this!

    So joe …

    Johnny Manziel was known to party daily. Was not 1st person in building or last to leave. Teammates didn’t have much to say about him. He would sleep thru meetings and on couch at team facility. Disappeared from team at times to go to Vegas. Didn’t work hard. Manziel was a diva / head case who roughed up his woman But yah. He is awesome.

    Desean Jackson sleeps thru meetings and didn’t kiss Jameis butt. He wasn’t happy about not getting football like any diva receiver so he wanted out. Yet he is the devil.

    Good morning kettle. I see you are still black.

    I mean just wow. I would love to hear the response on this. Please chime back.

    Roger Kingdom will coach speed and conditioning.

    Anthony Piroli will be the head strength and conditioning coach.

    This is great news!! Hopefully, this gets rid of our massive injuries every frickin season.

    I don’t believe that Roger Clemens’ son just complied and did absolutely nothing either. Knowing they weren’t drunk doesn’t mean much. The beating definitely seems excessive but I guess we will know more as witnesses and other details come out

    I’d rather have Bridgewater

  8. Clodhopper Says:

    Jay and Silent Bob are not welcome at 7-11 in NYC.

  9. Clodhopper Says:

    What’s causing all that heart disease? Easy: Fake food and sugar.

  10. Buccfan37 Says:

    Can I place my bet on the SB at Publix yet?

  11. stpetebucsfan Says:


    You make an excellent point. Our diets and lack of exercise have done nothing for our health.

    But the sudden spike in heart disease came from writing new guidelines that bumped high blood pressure from 140/90 to 130/80. If you take that out of the equation heart disease grew by a whopping 1.7%. Great article about this in the weekend edition of USA Today.

    Ahh. I see. I should have known better. I’m actually embarrassed I fell for it.
