    I love the article "still looking for blood on the field. After all, he had just been flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness on back-to-back plays. He still had work to do, you know?"

    Parcells is going to have a field day with him. What an idiot.

    If he isn't released at the end of the season, I'll eat my hat...

    Then again, I don't have one.

    I was wondering if Sparano was indeed yelling at Porter. CBS got a pretty good shot of him and an assistant screaming, and then they showed Porter. This was right after the unsportsmanlike Porter was given, so I'm not surprised this is the actual case.

    What a piece of work. I would love to see him get his clock cleaned.

    I feel the infamous "She" word coming from Parcells now or some derivative of it!

    Was watching the game with some friends and tried to imagine what would happen if he was a patriot.. at least inactive for the next game.. what a tool, he really believes he is bigger than the team...

    Yeah, I saw Sporano yelling at Porter to come off the field. This is why I wouldn't want Porter on this team. He is a loose cannon. Sporano has no choice but to suspend Porter for the next game. He needs to show that it is his team and not Porter's.

    This reminds me of LT and the NY Giants when he was getting out of control off of the field, if you read the books about BB, he has worked hard not to allow one player to be above the law and bigger than the team as was the case with LT, it will be interesting to see how Parcells and Sporano react.. I suspect it may wind up being the classical failure to communicate.. or one of those classic handled internally things.

    I did too. Porter is a great player but man does he have issues. Does anyone know why he got that unsportsmanlike conduct penalty? The announcers didn't bother to elaborate.

    Joey Porter was basically rendered absent yesterday:D and I couldn't be happier. No idea exactly what he did but it's amazing to me that he got away with not leaving the field. No doubt Parcells will take care of it :popcorn:

    He should have been hauled off and made an example of like Singletary had the balls to do.

    Like others have said, with Parcells I'd be surprised if that slides.

    The Pats seem to have that effect on teams. Remember the Ravens game last year. Throwing the penalty flag into the stands and the ensuing kickoff
    from their 40 yard line......

    Their 35-yard line, actually; they managed to add a false start penalty to make it even more hilarious. ;)

    What does "tried to bench Porter" mean?

    Did Porter just refuse to leave the field?

    They sent Ray Anderson out to replace him. Porter sent Anderson back to the sidelines. The cameras flashed to Sporano yelling to someone to "come here", but apparently Porter refused.

    He was too busy complaining to the refs about an unsportsmanlike penalty. Earlier in the game a ref can be seen telling him to "be quiet" after another Miami penalty. He's not making any friends.
