Default Chris Rainey waived by Steelers after being arrested for Battery

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/88...attery-florida



I hadn't heard about it prior to today, I guess because I haven't watched ESPN in a few days.



Anyways, it's disappointing to me because he had a seemingly bright future.

Not to pile on but every time he got in trouble in Florida they would always let him get away with it. Seems that sort of thing has consequences.

That's a very odd way to describe him in my opinion.

That's how Urban Meyer ran the Florida program. Things were covered up, punishments were minimized or strategically placed (ie Holding Jarvis Moss' one game suspension until the following game against Western Carolina), and if a player was good enough they could do things unimpuned. Percy Harvin did whatever he wanted while at Florida.

Perception isn't always reality. 'Every time he got in trouble in Florida' was once. And he was suspended for 5 games as a result and was only able to return after he earned his way back on the team. I wouldn't call that getting away with it. Granted it was pretty stupid, so it probably seems like he got in trouble more.

Hey, I'm with you on Meyer, he did seem to have certain players who could do no wrong, on or off the field. But you used a couple of bad examples. What dirt do you have on Percy? The guy never got into trouble at Florida. And Jarvis Moss failed 1 drug test. That was the only time he ever got in trouble, so the punishment must have been enough for him to learn his lesson, right?

You don't think that kind of stuff goes on at every school? I know uga did something similar to us this year (waiting to suspend a player). Whatever though, i really dont think a player should be suspended for a big game for a 1st or minor offense. How much trouble did Stephen Garcia get into in his time at USC? He got so many second chances. And I just addressed the post you quoted, rainey didn't get away with anything, he was suspended for 5 games for sending a stupid text message.

Rainey should have learned to play QB and he wouldn't have had an issue.
