Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

There is no excuse for this. What? He didn't have the money for a cab? BS.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

I don't take DUI's lightly. I lost a friend to a DUI and not just "a person I know". Myself along with 15 other friends were involved in it. myself, and one other were the only two able to walk (thats how bad the wreck was). So him getting a DUI is a big deal. I have a special breed of hatred for a drunk driver.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

Disappointing, no doubt.
Most importantly, thank goodness no one was hurt because there is no excuse to be in that situation NFL player or not. Alternatives are too easy to keep you from driving drunk.
Surprising? Not even slightly. This type of behavior is common place when these kids come into NFL money and fame.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

I mean obviously Payton cannot be responsible for every single thing that every single guy does during their off hours, especially during the off season, but this is HIGHLY un-Saints like behavior -- you have to kinda wonder if maybe Morgan hasn't had that much time in the Sean Payton world, with Sean Payton actually in the building. I mean, his first year, he goes down on IR in preseason, then he comes back and is on the team for a whole year WITHOUT Payton around... If you ask me, he's never really seen what the players and character/off-field behavior of this team and Sean Payton is REALLY supposed to be like. This makes me shudder to wonder what sort of other wild, undisciplined, stupid things were going on last year, off the field, that we don't even know about. Incredibly dumb move on his part.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

a cab is $50. This likely will cost him several hundreds of thousands in salary and make him unmarketable for endorsements further limiting his earnings potential. To pile onto the sentiment,

you can't fix stupid.

He will lose from a game check to $50k for a fist offense.

You're probably right, but he wasn't actually driving when he was arrested. None of us know exactly what happened because we weren't there. The only thing we know is he was sitting in his car drunk as a skunk. Now if he were actually intending to drive before he passed out, then he's an irresponsible moron and I want nothing to do with him.

I worked bars for years. If you left the bar, went out to your car, put the keys on the floor and went to sleep drunk then a cop found you....

The assumption is you passed out trying to get the keys in the ignition...

Because obviously if I had passed out trying to start the car I would just say "fell asleep: ..


If you intend to sleep it off in your car, the keys need to be put in your glove box.... and DO NOT sleep in the drivers seat!

You can not get behind the steering wheel drink with keys close enough to reach.


Sleeping it off on the side of the Highway is well unsafe?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

Bad mistake, it will cost him a ton of money, time, and now he is tagged. People do dumb things all the time. By no means am I trying to defend him, I hope this is a slap to the face. #19 just might be back, and ole Joe is back on the sideline......I just want DH back that's all
