    I doubt that's the whole story.

    He's not the type of person to start fights.

    He's selling his "Five-Six" club, this was a club called "Wet" in Appleton.

    " He was subsequently arrested for battery and was confined to the Outagamie County Jail a few blocks away. "

    Sorry but the jails name is just plain funny, :rotflmao: even though I doubt he will be suspended for any amount of games. You never know though with Mr. Goodell and his itchy trigger finger.

    Women's
    Entertainment
    Tavern

    Is this the same WET??

    "WET is an exclusively women's entertainment venue. Men are not permitted after 3pm and should not attempt to enter the club."

    He must have been picking someone up for a ride at closing time.

    This is absolutely, downright disheartening.


    Unbelievable.

    I hope the butcher is getting ready...

    if he really did assault someone, and doesnt get cleared.... thats a sure fire suspension with Goddell.

    that would be devastating.

    Damn, the mugshot makes me think the dude might have been drunk.

    But the most important thing right now is that Barnett may face the new commissioner's wrath. I don't think he'd miss more than a couple of weeks, maybe 4 tops. Surely if Tank Johnson only got 8 weeks, Barnett won't get anywhere near as that.

    I wonder what MM plans to do about this.

    This is the first sort of incidence like this under his watch, so I'm more interested in seeing how he responds to this. I hope at the very least, McCarthy has a few words with Barnett to remind him that he should be more responsible when going out and partying.

    drunk a-dap? ya think?

    fighting at 2 am in the club...im sure everybody was sauced up.

    as far as what MM will say to the media.

    "we don't condone that type of behavior here blah blah blah. nick made a mistake blah blah blah. i believe this will be an isolated incident blah blah blah. the packers will take steps to ensure situations like this won't occur again blah blah blah..."

    what MM will say to Barnett.

    "hey Nick. don't do that **** again."

    Oh I thinks there's a very good chance for a small suspension, no question.

    No way he gets suspended. Getting in a fight at a nightclub is no big deal. I got in a fight last wednesday. jerramy stevens has committed repeated offenses. a lot of guys have been arrested for fighting charges. any other incidents by barnett could trigger a suspension. but i think the commish will give him one more shot. one fight is nothing compared to tank johnson, chris henry, pacman, or odell thurman.

    suspension or no suspencion, it's irrelavent. What is relavent is this guys history. If I were in his shoes, I'd stay as far away from the things that get him in trouble as I could. If the man can't handle his drink, then don't drink. He's a professional football player, sometimes idiots decide to challenge a guy to make a name for themselves. You have to know that happens, so get the hell out of there at an earlier hour so you're not there at the time things like this happen. Go back to your hotel and party there. Barnett is a grown man and he should know better. The fact that he doesn't, is what concerns me.

    I was hoping to see Hodge get some more playing time this year, but hopefully it won't come at the expense of Barnett being suspended. This sucks.

    Barnett is a fine player. Sometimes he's a little too aggressive on the field and over runs plays instead of staying home and taking care of his assignment. Apparently he has those same tendencies in his personal life.

    ohh come on pack... the last thing we need in green bay is people tellin the players to stay in a room and party.

    jesus christ its already hard enough to get free agents in wisconsin... now your saying that some drunk redneck can talk junk, spout off and then sue him when he hits him in a drunken stupor.... and its the players fault??

    i mean we need to see all the details... but NFL player or not... bar fights happen, and if your choking someone its usually more of a defensive tactic than throwing haymakers.

    Players go out and party, its what normal 20 somethings do. you cant tell 20 somethings to stay at home and dont go out, or youll never sign another draft pick. much less free agents.
