Is there a dumber collection of grown men than the one put together by the Detroit Lions?
We think not. The Lions chalked up their seventh arrest of the offseason over the weekend and, here’s a real surprise, the guy who got arrested was already arrested earlier this offseason. The genius in question is cornerback Aaron Berry, who has more tattoos than he has brain cells.
Here’s the kicker. Berry was arrested in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in pretty much the same place as he was popped for DUI earlier this year. This time, Berry was sure to take it to the next level by pointing a gun at a bystander.
Cpl. Kyle Gautsch of the Harrisburg Police Department says Berry was taken into custody early Saturday morning on three charges of simple assault. Gautsch says there “was a weapon allegedly brandished during the incident.”
From what we’ve heard, there were a group of guys leaving a club and they passed behind the car Berry was in. Some words were exchanged, Berry rolled down the window and pointed what appeared to be a laser at the guys, but was really a handgun with a laser site on it. One of the guys recognized this and went and told the police.
If this isn’t some kind of record for arrests in a single offseason, it has to be close. We’ll take a look at the Minnesota Vikings stats and get back to you, since they still lead the league in douchebaggery.
When is the NFL going to start enforcing professional conduct? Players should get one chance to reform, and then they are gone. These players are supposed to be role models, but are no different than street thugs and drug dealers. I don’t care if losing the player hurts the team or NFL ratings. If the Natioanl Felons League would start enforcing conduct rigidly, these issues would be few and far between

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, I’m a fricken Detroit Lion. The Lions are quickly erasing any off field record Cincinnati has ever held.
Now a free agent!
And he was supposed to be a starter too.
The only thing better than this would be if he had done it after a few training camp cuts. Now the Lions have a chance to throw a few band aids on the situation.
No, the Lions definitely lead the league in douchebaggery. The Vikes lead the league in suckage.
Berry got cut for his troubles.
Getting cut from the Lions for thuggery is kind of like getting kicked out of Guns N Roses for doing too much drugs. You really have to be at the next level for that.
Is it me or does Jim Schwartz look like Ed Grimley
