    Wow thoughts and prayers to the Philbin family. This will sound selfish maybe, but lets hope this is nothing or this is a bad distraction.

    Did Cullen Jenkins brother or dad or something disappear around the time of the Super Bowl? This is like Deja Vu all over again!

    Prayers for the Philbin family. We got Joe's autograph when we went to Green Bay this year, he seems like a really cool and down to earth guy. Hoping for the best.

    Doesn't go very well with this story either.. since Philbin's son was last seen at 2 am Sunday.

    I'm hoping/praying for the best, but this does NOT sound good. :(

    All I know from my years of ice fishing is that lake ice can be very safe; river ice can be very dangerous. Walking on ice that is more unpredictable and has a current that can move you from the break-through point is very risky. I hope that nobody did go through the ice and that either way, Joe's son is found.

    At least McCarthy calls the plays so if this isn't resolved by Sunday, Joe won't have as much pressure to concentrate on the game.

    those bitches would not dare - this is Amish country


    Doesn't sound good with the Fox River search going on. Is there people fishing the river at this time of the year? Thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. As far as Packer distraction - stuff like this puts a silly game in perspective.

    Horrible. Horrible timing for him, and the preparation of the team.

    This kid has been trouble before, sadly, just like Andy Reid's kids.

    My thoughts are with this family, regardless of the outcome. Hopefully it will be a good one.

    It is. He was 17 years-old and had a party (girls were also "over the age of 16")...he did a really bad thing but people are jumping to conclusions elsewhere, that he is a "child molester" going after "little girls" - when it sounds to me like it was a case of a teen taking advantage of peers who had too much alcohol. Don't get me wrong - it's bad - but not the same kind of bad, imo.

    Its relevance to this story escapes me, but the media is including the snippet about the conviction in every report...but without details, so it sounds like he's some sort of child predator. Already saw a couple of people say they felt bad until they realized that's what he was.

    Adding: Here's a link to another J/S story on it.

    Well, he was 18. I will admit, I lost sympathy when I saw this. Who knows, maybe he became a better guy after this.

    The link I posted says he was 17:

    According to the criminal complaint, Michael Philbin, who was 17 at the time, hosted a party at the family's Sonoran Court home near Southwest High School on Aug. 21. The Packers flew to Denver that day to play the Broncos the next evening in an exhibition game.

    I think non consensual sex or contact is all on the same level. It's all bad no matter who does what to whom whatever the ages and circumstances.
    If that's the only way that he could have sex with girls, passed out, that is just wrong in all sorts of ways and on so many levels.
    You just don't do that. Take advantage in the worst way when the victim is asleep and can't defend herself.

    I'm beginning to feel the same way.
    I don't wish him dead but if he is I probably won't feel so bad about now that I know the wrong he did to innocent victims.
    Ignorance really is bliss.

    I agree that it's all bad (and I said so), but: You don't think there's any difference between a 17 year-old taking advantage of drunk teens at a party and, say, what happened at Penn State?

    People who do what he did serve jail, not prison sentences, for less than one year. If it were the same, and just as bad, do you think that would be the case? Do you think he should have gone to prison?

    It is. Still waiting to know whether it's him, but I can't imagine it will be long now. Whoever it is, it's an awful thing. (I lost a brother to drowning in a Wisconsin river in the winter; it devastated my family.)
