    I see your point there. That's why it's very important these guys stay out of trouble. All it takes is 1 or 2 more times and the Rams could move on. Even if it's small things like a bar fight.

    Here's the thing: Dunbar knows he's under scrutiny due to last offseason. He's a vet and a leader, and he has to know what that carries. Yes, to freak up is human, and a fight isn't the biggest deal in the world, but here's a guy who is both counted on to be a respected voice in the locker room and who has some recent offseason issues (of a different sort) that have put him under more of a microscope.

    It was a bad choice, and a stupid move. He was arrested. You can't brush off a team leader being arrested.

    Does this mean he's out with the Rams? Probably not, and I hope not. He's a good run-support SLB, which is what the Rams' base D needs. He can get after the QB a little. As long as he's not suspended by the NFL, he'll be back in there preseason game 1 for a series running with the rest of the 1's.

    But let's not act like this shouldn't be called out. Stupid move by a veteran player. Dunbar should seriously know better, and if he's going to make the choice of going into situations with alcohol and lots of people, he should be ready to take the consequences - both his arrest and the subsequent media scrutiny - of what could (and did) happen.

    Just a simple suggestion; How about ya'll shut the freak up until you know the facts!! How about we start this discussion when we know what actually happened.
    Not sure if that's how you do it, tho. Oh well.

    GO RAMS!!!!

    Maybe the other guy deserved an ass whopping?
    Did you ever think of that?
    Maybe the guy was talking trash about the Rams?

    KICK HIS ASS D-BASS!!!

    And look at how it's impacted their careers. We're looking forward to them overcoming their troubles, because everyone loves a reclamation story, but if they do something stupid again - in the case of guys like Britt, Tru and Reid, something stupid that impacts the Rams (for the first time); in the case of guys like Bailey or JJ, something that establishes a pattern - I have to think that people will jump on them pretty quickly.

    Britt has gone from "OMG HOF talent 1st rounder SO GOOD" to a 1-year "prove-it" deal in part because of his stupid off-the-field stuff.
    JJ probably lost the chance to be a top-10 pick.
    Johnson probably dropped at least a round and a half.

    These guys have suffered for their stupid actions. I don't see how that's any different than Dunbar having to deal with the consequences of his bar fight and subsequent arrest.

    I'll reiterate that I disagree with those who think he'll be cut because of this; that's a serious overreaction, unless the NFL finds something suspension-worthy - but I don't see him being held to any different standard than any other NFL player who has run into legal issues.

    Except Leonard Little. No freakin' idea how anyone ever rooted for him again.

    I didn't. Nothing arrest worthy. That's how this works. They play in a system where athletes playing a game are glorified, followed, analyzed, and otherwise revered. They're rewarded handsomely in most cases. They do have to work their assess off, but it is what it is. The trade-off is, if they do things that make them look like a dumb ass, I get to say so.

    Unless Dunbar doesn't make it to TC, I don't see how this effects the Rams in the slightest. It's a bar fight. Unless new details emerge dealing with weapons who really cares? Dunbar's problem here is he's not the star. If it were Quinn there would be far less rose colored glasses flashbacks about how we never did anything like this, or would have never conceived of doing anything like this.
    Fact is, Dunbar doesn't have crap on me as far as behavior goes, and I wasn't rich.

    29 hah, MAN I'm 64 and there are still times I get the urge to jack a big mouth up, it was a fight and probably a pretty good one,but if this sends him back in hiding and he commits to stop clubbin' til the end of the season ,this could end up great for the whole club.
    Ain't like Trent Green just got his knee blown out:cry:

    Any suspension wouldn't apply before the regular season, even if the NFL could gather facts and make a decision before then. We'll get to see in pre-season whether he's worth the bother, (if there is any, and that's a big if). His contract is a 1 year non-guaranteed $751K deal, ($21K over league minimum) plus a $128K guaranteed roster bonus, which says much about how the Rams value him.

    I don't expect this incident to have any impact on his status, other than him losing any team leadership role that he might have had. Releasing him last year was good business. No-one else wanted him and bringing him back at a slightly reduced rate was preferable to giving him a club fine. I doubt that happens this year.

    If it was just a consensual fist fight between two grown ass men. Cops should have stayed out of it.
    Yes its a poor example for the younger players on the team.
    And if Dunbar gets suspended then it's a big deal because it does hurt the team.
    Dunbar is a fringe player, he didn't need this trouble. Makes me wonder if some of these guys are fringe because they lack talent or just stupid.

    Understood and IMO one is not better than the other or vice versa, however, Dunbar is a veteran and a starter and was being counted on this coming seaason. Reid has an outside chance to make the club. If they took Reid away, IMO, he blew an opportunity. I just expected more out of Dunbar. And although he could be totally innocent in all of this nothing good happens outside a nightclub in the wee hours of the morning.

    Everyone Freaking out settle down, all those pointing out every other players transgressions and past mistakes quit condoning and wait and see what transpires.
    Yes Hi hopes for Ray Ray but not sure he is ready to be THE GUY. We will be fine, although thin at LB lets wait for the complete results.
