I understand that you're making a joke, but the two situations are completely different, the main difference (in my mind) being that Robinson was out the night before the game, not the night before Media Day.

And, of course, Robinson was arrested for offering an undercover cop $40 for a blow-job; all we can say for sure about Bush is that he was not in bed at 3:30 AM --- which isn't even a violation of his team rules, much less an actual crime. But, for the record, I wouldn't have even cared if Bush was caught soliciting. The reason people made such a big deal out of Robinson's arrest is that he was married with kids and was a proselytizing, Atheletes-in-Action, look-at-me Christian. Whereas Bush is kicking it to Kim Kardashian, 'nuff said.

Best part of Super Bowl will be the 1 million shots of KimmyK Superstar in the loge, worst part is they won't be showing her booty (or anything being put in said round mound of love)

But on the partying???!?!?! does anyone really care that football players are out drinking? That is what they do before they die 20-25 years before all of us. They live hard and die ealry

Eugene Robinson also won man of the year (maybe the Wlter Payton award) for being the best dude in the NFL off the field that year. Irony ensued

Nonstory. Must be a slow news day. I'm surprised FO would even waste their time tagging this as an XP.

If this were Friday or Saturday, maybe it'd be minor news.

But a backup running back chose to enjoy some nightlife a week before a game? Nothing to see here.

The more I think about it, the more this kind of makes sense.
If the Colts stay secluded in their hotel rooms and practice compound all week, watching game films and rehearsing blocking schemes, while the Saints party all week and crawl up the tunnel Sunday on their hands and knees with Tequila breath and bloodshot eyes, we can be assured that both teams are bringing their A-game.
Colts will be Colts, and Saints will be Saints.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez, boys! And Peyton, let's see another hundred snaps before lunch.

Exactly.

The only problem for me would be if the Saints' partying somehow disrupted the Manning-Garcon 3 am film study session, making it run overtime into the Manning-Clark 4 am session, and truncating the Manning-Raymond Berry session slated for 6 am. (Roger Carr and Billy Brooks are still waiting in the hotel/bunker lobby for a slot to open up.)

Then it would confer an unfair advantage on the Saints.

1) It was from Monday night. You know, the day prior to ***gasp*** media day.

2) No one had a curfew on that night, and not surprisingly, no one seemed worse for the wear on media day.

3) Hardly any surprise that TMZ focused only on Bush and no other players.

4) Hardly any surprise that Barnwell, a well known Bush hater, jumped at the opportunity to post this as an extra point. Why didn't you repeat your Reggie Bush DYAR bet this season, Barnwell?

Football Outsiders is much, much better than this. You know it, I know it, and other readers know it. You should be ashamed of yourself for linking to TMZ in the first place, let alone linking to TMZ for a NON-STORY.

Not that anyone said this here, but I love how when photographs are sometimes interpreted as someone looking worse for wear or "blitzed", etc. (The Eli Manning one comes to mind with the beer in his hand). People do realize that sometimes pictures catch people blinking, or yawning, or whatever right? And this sometimes makes them seem "out of it", when they really aren't.

Last week SI had a story on snow/skateboarder Shaun White (the Flying Tomato). He went down to the lodge restaurant and a woman kept trying to get him to hold her drink while a guy waited, poised to take a photo. White left and said just what you said - they'll take 100 photos and print the one where you look ridiculous because you were laughing, or rolling your eyes, or sneezing, with the caption "WASTED AGAIN!"

It's kind of the same deal with Roethlisberger except there they wait and wait for the one photo where he looks sober.
