Word has it from a somewhat unreliable source that Marvin Lewis, head coach of The Cincinnati Bengals, is fed up with all the Bengal arrest for alcohol or drug related issues and is ordering the entire team to enter rehab.
“It’s really easier on Marvin to tell them all to go,” said a source who states he once saw Lewis. “I mean with so many of them under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he can’t keep track of who’s straight and who isn’t.”
Nine Bengal players have been arrested over the past 13 months. A drug dealer in Over-the-Rhine recently told this reporter he sells crack to Bengal players on a regular basis.
“Ain’t no big deal to me, ya know?” said the crack dealer who seemed to be smoking the stuff himself. “They come on down here to Vine Street all the time, got plenty of money on ‘em to buy the stuff. Shit, a couple of ‘em gave me their autograph.”
In a related story, reports are coming out of South Florida that several Bengal players showed up at Dolphin Stadium this past Sunday, thinking that they were to play in the Super Bowl.
“They were totally shit faced,” said a drunken South Florida resident. “They were all dressed up in their uniforms. All dressed up with no place to play. Kind of sad if you ask me.”
That less than reliable source tells me drug or alcohol rehab for the players should begin some time late this week.
“It’s not going to be easy rounding up these guys,” said the source. “Many are so stoned out of their minds, you can’t even find them. They forget where they live half the time.”
