    Bengals | Locker room scuffle breaks out
    Thu, 17 Nov 2005 11:45:51 -0800

    Mark Curnutte, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports a locker room fight occurred at Paul Brown Stadium Thursday, Nov. 17, while the media was present. DL Carl Powell picked up CB Reggie Myles and threw him down. The incident occurred in the equipment room, adjacent to the locker room, and touched off a 20-minute shouting match that spilled into the locker room and involved several other Bengals players. The confrontation was believed to be the result of horse-play gone too far. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said through the team's media relations department that he had no comment on the incident and that it would be handled internally. Rookie LB Odell Thurman got into a shouting match with some of the veteran players who had led Myles out of the equipment room.

    I think it's interesting, especially in the wake of the Bears O-line fight and the TO/Douglass scuffle.

    Odell needs to keep a cool head.

    He has been a heck of a player this year so far and has shed some of that description of being trouble from his college days.

    He is too good to start getting in trouble and ruin it for himself.

    Not saying he caused any of the trouble...just that he needs to stay out of any trouble.

    So...does anyone think it was a towel whipped across someones bare butt that really cracked and left a welt that started it all? :laugh2:

    Don't know if anyone remembers, but the funniest "fighting teammates" story I've ever heard was when Mario Bates and Lorenzo Neal were together on the Saints and were apparently hanging out at a bar. They got into a dispute and I believe Neal broke Bates's jaw with one punch and knocked him out in the process.

    The Michael Westbrook-Stephen Davis incident that was caught on video that one training camp was also pretty graphic. I wonder if they ever got to the bottom of the story on what led to that, does anyone know?

    Someone needs to remind them that they are 7-2...not 2-7.

    You only imagine how big the Clint Longley/Roger Staubach scuffle would have been if the mass media and the internet were nearly as prominant back then.:laugh2:

    Geez. The way that story paints it, Myles either started something serious or got a whole lot of crap for something small.

    Lucky for Powell he won that battle, can you imagine the hazing he would have gotten if he let a CB beat him up?

    This, in a nutshell is why Kevin Burnett is a Cowboy instead of Odell Thurman. Odell served a couple of suspensions in college and had a number of off-field issues with fighting etc.

    You just aren't going to see Ware, Spears, Burnett, et al. involved in this sort of stuff.

    I witnessed a locker room brawl over that one time but the towel hit a much more vulnerable place. If you know what I mean.
