Apparently got arrested for theft at a casino. Not good considering hes a face of the Nflpa
Kudos to Jonathan Kraft for the brilliant setup and entrapment!
Blubbergutz McToesniffer found out and sent the Jets bus to pick him up...can never have enough thieves,rapists,child molesters,drunks or deadbeats on the Jet roster...
Disagreement about a bar tab...at 5:20 AM.
NFL.com news: Chiefs LB Vrabel charged with theft in Indiana casino
geez...they should GIVE AWAY beer and drinks just to get you in ANY establishment in that cowpie infested blot on the landscape known as Indy....
Bartender is obviously a bitter Colts fan still upset over the Pats dominance of the Colts during Vrabels time with the Pats.
After seeing what the actual offense is, you should probably apologize (figuratively) to Vrabel for automatically lumping him in with rapists and child molestors
Or at least for insinuating he could become a Jet. That's low, man...
What he said..... :rocker:
Pretty clearly not a "theft" as we generally understand it. That said, when even the supposedly mature, responsible union reps are getting arrested for fighting over bar bills at casinos at 5:00 am...yikes.
Thanks for the context.
"Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone."
thief? rapist? child molester? I'm glad no one's jumping to judgment here.
the rapist and the serial underage child fondler are already on the Jets...along with about 40 other perverts, preverts,introverts(oh wait,they finally cut Goatston) and miscreants....
I was referring to lumping Vrabel with them...
Rapists, child molestor, Jets...
Calling someone these names is just wrong. Clean it up.
So if I get this right- Vrabel had a losing argument over the number of beers on his tab and decided to take 8 more out of the deli for compensation?
i find it funny that most media outlets describe Vrabel as "ex-Patriot LB, Mike Vrabel"...instead of "KC LB, Mike Vrabel". That hate for all things Patriots is in full force yet again
In this case I just chalk it up to most people know him as a former Patriot rather then a KC Chief. Just like you wouldn't say former KC Chief Joe Montana even tho that's the last team he played for.
Agreed. He won 3 SBs as a key player on the Patriots' defenses. As a Chief, he's been a veteran presence on bad and decent teams. I wouldn't be surprised if the average NFL fan doesn't even realize that he doesn't play for the Pats anymore.
Also, if Brandon Meriweather had done this, people would be freaking out over how terrible of a person he is. Since it's Vrabel, it's, if anything, funny that something so asinine could be considered a felony. Funny how this forum works sometimes.
Is that the story?
Being reported now that he took 8 beers,
Vrabelâ€™s arrest arose from eight bottles of beer | ProFootballTalk
Hope it was not crappy beer...
If his union hadn't decertified they could probably file a motion demanding this case be remanded to Judge Doty's court in Minnesota...where they would successfully argue that under the terms of the SSA of 1993 the owners were supposed to pay for all the beer.
Yes, but he did not steal anything.
He should hire Meriweathers attorney proclaiming his innocence.
Interesting that in a middle of a lockout, one of the most prominent players decides to get arrested over eight beers.
A time where the players are suppose to not look greedy. Vrabel "steals" eight beers.
Who teaches these guys PR?
you might want to ease on hi ma bit. considering he and his merry gang started at 100 bottles of beer in the fridge, they may not have been coherent enough to realize what was going on by the time they got down to 8 bottles of beer :bricks:
On a more serious note, with Vrabel being front and center of the CBA issue, this doesn't help their cause and no doubt this was more of a misunderstanding than anything else (like entitlement).
Who the hell goes to Indiana to party and go to Casinos??
Especially if you have professional athlete jingle!
What a ree-tahd!
I have a gambling problem- I never win.....except at the Indiana, Ohio River casinos. The way they are setup on the river creates good competition and they do have pretty good payouts.
The riverboat casinos are actually pretty fun and this one is an easy day drive from where he lives. Maybe Mike Vrabel is confident enough that he can interact with the flyover types.
Yeah, except this is Mike Vrabel, not ordinary guys and gals like us. He can go to most casino's and get his alcohol fully comped, as well as a comped room if he promises to tell his teammates that he had a good time at their casino.
Taking 8 beers at 5:30 am is pretty stupid. Then again, a player rep participating in a PR war with owners probably shouldn't be out gambling and drinking at 5:30am...
Who really should be? But we all do it from time to time. Gambling and Casinos bring out the best in us.
His only mistake was not going to Vegas because we all know what happens there stays there
I agree on the the stupidity of the actions.
My post was in response do someone questioning going to Indiana vs say Vegas/ Atlantic City or Foxwoods.
My point is the riverboats are pretty fun and the numerous family members I did take to them compared the boats favorably to Foxwoods and Mohigan Sun.
