Koren Robinson...

See the Seattle judge sentenced him to 90 days on his probation violation for his MN DWI. But, the judge let him work the rest of the NFL season and then can come in within a certain amount of time after that. Its not unheard of to give a guy a little time to start a sentence, but honestly that's 3 months and its far too long. Preferential treatment to these spoiled millionaire NFL thugs only makes things worse not better with the state of that league. He should be locked up now... What a loser. Great pick up by the wholesome adn rightous Packers huh???!!! HA!

Dawg, you know the deal.

If I, the boilerman, were to do the same thing do you honestly think I'd get the same treatment???

I'm no lawyer but I don't think so. He belongs in jail, but Green Bay is close enough. grin.gif

It still surprises me that Green Bay took this guy on.

Years ago they looked very closely at your off-field resume, and if there were any hints of a problem they kind of quietly shuffled them out the door, for instance Mark Chmura and before that James Lofton. Not saying whay they used to do was a bad thing, however.

I'll be the first to say that I groaned when I saw TT pick Koren up. I commend Childress for sticking to his word and cutting him. I guess I can see how the Pack would be tempted to take him though. One, they waited until after the first game of the season so his contract would not be guaranteed through the year. Two, I'm sure there is very clear wording in his contract that allows them to dump him if they even get a whiff of more criminal activity. Three, I think he is playing for the league minimum right now. So with all of these precautionary measures in place, coupled with only a minor monetary investment, there really doesn't seem much to lose. Even if he gets the Pack a few key first downs, maybe decent field position or even a runback and then gets suspended and is out for the year, oh well. I don't think anybody can dispute that he's a talented player and Vikes fans, correct me if I'm wrong, but he never was really a malcontent, or a poison in the locker room was he? This is just my take on why the Pack signed him. Like I said, if it were me, I would have looked the other way...its not like one guy is gonna take us to the playoffs this year anyway.

Oh and for all the Vikes fans that think he is such a loser now:

I hope Koren does well. He was well liked by the fans and the team. I guess it is kind of like my old girlfriend. She was great, beautiful, sweet but just couldn't seem to stay out of the bed with other guys. It does not mean she isn't great, beautiful and sweet but I sure would not want to date her again.

he does belong in jail. having said that, koren getting three months before he has to start his sentence is not all that uncommon. If you had a decent lawer you would be able to get a simialer deal, if you could could prove contractual prior engagements, even with a probation violation.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson was suspended without pay Tuesday for a minimum of one year for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

The league's action came hours after Robinson pleaded not guilty to charges of drunken driving and fleeing police stemming from a high-speed chase in August.

Robinson's agent, Alvin Keels, said in a telephone interview he was surprised the league didn't wait until after Robinson's legal issues in Minnesota had been resolved to issue the suspension.

Keels said Robinson was disappointed by the decision.

"He seems to be handling it well," Keels said. "I think he's in a state of shock right now. We thought the league would wait. But obviously, they're trying to make a statement."

Robinson, who said Monday that he expected to play in the Packers' game in Miami on Sunday and didn't think his legal troubles would affect his playing status this year, did not immediately respond to a message left on his cell phone by The Associated Press.

Keels said the reason given for the suspension was the league believed Robinson consumed alcohol on the night he was arrested in Minnesota. Under the terms of the league's substance abuse policy, officials didn't have to wait for Robinson's court case to be resolved to suspend him.

Speaking at a news conference in Green Bay, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Robinson had an appeal hearing with the league by conference call Monday.

Under the terms of the suspension, McCarthy said Robinson would not be allowed to work out or practice with the team. McCarthy said he wasn't even sure if he was allowed to talk to Robinson while he was suspended.

"I really have never been involved in this process before, but my understanding is, we're not allowed to be involved as an organization," McCarthy said. "Just in respect to the NFL guidelines, we will follow those guidelines."

Packers general manger Ted Thompson, who signed Robinson to a two-year deal last month, was on a scouting trip and unavailable for comment.

Keels said the fact the Packers knew Robinson could face a league suspension when they signed him, plus the fact they signed him for more than a year, was a sign they would take him back next year after he becomes eligible to be reinstated.

"I definitely think that it's a situation to where he'll more than likely be welcomed back," Keels said.

But, Keels said, "A year's a long time, so we'll just have to see what happens."

Robinson caught seven passes for 89 yards and averaged 21.1 yards on 12 kickoff returns in four games for the Packers this year. He is eligible to be reinstated no sooner than Sept. 18, 2007.

The suspension leaves the Packers without a proven No. 3 receiver. Robert Ferguson remains on crutches after injuring his foot in the Packers' Oct. 2 game at Philadelphia. Ferguson will undergo more tests this week, McCarthy said.

McCarthy expressed confidence that first-year receiver Ruvell Martin and other players would be able to contribute in Robinson's absence.

Robinson is a Pro Bowl-caliber kickoff returner and talented receiver, but his history of off-field troubles with alcohol played a role in his exit from Seattle and Minnesota.

Robinson was briefly taken into custody after his court hearing in Minnesota earlier Tuesday because of a warrant for a previous traffic violation. He was released a short time later, after his attorney went to a bank to withdraw $1,000 to post bond.

The more serious charges came when Robinson was with the Minnesota Vikings. His car topped 100 mph as police chased him from St. Peter to the Vikings' training camp headquarters in Mankato on Aug. 15. Police say Robinson's blood-alcohol content was 0.11 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08.

The Vikings cut Robinson after the August incident, and he signed with the Packers in September.

This month, Robinson was sentenced to three months in jail for violating probation on a separate drunken-driving case in Kirkland, Wash., last year. He plans to serve the sentence after the season.

Robinson already had been suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy in 2004.

St. Peter is about 57 miles southwest of Minneapolis, and about 10 miles north of Mankato.

I'm going back out on Wednesday different lake anyone going out and don't mind me tagging along let me know. Got to use my ion for the first time and it was awesome cut really good still trying to figure out all the settings on my humminbird locator sure is different than the FL20 I use to have going to take some time to get use to.

      It wasn't scott that warned me about the ice conditions another guy warned me about it.  It'll be interesting here shortly when snow starts hitting and people start hitting lakes with snowmobiles.  See how many find thin ice.  Kinda sucks but it is what it is can only take precautions while  going out.
    • bbfenatic
      Chill: I heard you guys had a good outing up North for the Trout..good job!  As fas as Melissa goes there is plenty of ice over on the crappie hole 9-11" but that area Scott was targeting Pike is always the last to freeze over on Melissa and it was not long ago that it did freeze out there...these larger bodies of water with rivers going through them or springs or that opened back up with those warmer temps and high winds are going to be suspect for quite a while unfortunately. Stay Safe Everyone!

      Oh I miss the days of getting lost on the lake because of Kelly's horrible directions .  Thank God Jonny drives us out there now, haven't been lost since (only arrived a day early ).
    • wallyeye
      Thanks Hoey! Hopefully someone comes forward.   
    • Hoey
      Wow sorry to hear that.  It must of been busy there for it to be picked up so quickly.  I hope you get it back.  
    • Hoey
      Seasons Greetings to all.  It is ice fishing season!!!  Hurrah. I fished Friday and Saturday.  I arrived on Thursday evening and found a lot of opinions on the safety aspect of the ice.  The resort is ultra conservative in their assessments, and this should be expected as they have a lot at risk.  First ice explorers always push the limits.  For example one sled is on the bottom after breaking through 2 inches of unexpected weak ice, a week ago Sunday.   I found 11 inches were I traveled and fished, only going out a couple miles.  There is a lot of eight inch thick broken ice chunks to work around and through.  The bite Friday was very good.  Catching numbers were high, but size kept it from being great to excellent.  I ended up one fish short of my walleye/sauger limit.  My four sauger were 15 to 16 inchers - nice.  My three walleye were 15 to 17 inchers.  I had two for dinner.  So on Saturday I was looking for three nice walleye.  The bite was much slower.  We had an east wind with rising temps.  I was anticipating another Friday type bite.  It was generally zero to eight degrees every morning.  I finally ended the Saturday with two 17 inch walleye, one short of my limit again.   I plan to be back during the week following Christmas through New Years with family and friends.   Good Luck and practice safety!!!

      By Kristi Coughlon, DNR information officer Minnesotans are a generous lot. For the past 40 years, they’ve made it possible for the Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program to help thousands of native species survive and thrive – including animals that are threatened, endangered and rare.  The program is now wrapping up its 40th anniversary with hopes that supporters will wrap up an end-of-year donation to put under the holiday tree in celebration of the many wildlife success stories it’s helped create, like the comeback of bald eagles and trumpeter swans. Success comes with a price tag, and rare species don’t collect a paycheck. They rely on our help. Unlike other DNR programs, the Nongame Wildlife Program doesn’t get general tax money; it receives no fees from hunting or fishing licenses. It’s funded almost entirely by voluntary donations made by people who want to ensure that Minnesota continues to have healthy natural systems that support a wide diversity of wildlife. Many of those donations are made when Minnesotans file their state income taxes, designating an amount on the line with the loon to go to the Nongame Wildlife Program. But people can donate anytime, online or by mail. Donations fund critical habitat restoration work, research projects, surveys to assess the status of threatened and endangered species, and outreach and education such as the popular eaglecam that reaches into millions of homes and classrooms in all 50 states and at least 160 countries around the world. Donations are tax deductible and matched dollar for dollar by the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) license plate fund. Donations also are used as match to federal grants and other outside funding sources, leveraging additional money to support nongame species conservation, research and habitat protection projects Looking for other reasons to donate? Here’s forty – one for each year of the program’s efforts: Monarch butterfly, bald eagle, forcipate emerald dragonfly, northern barrens tiger beetle, moneyface native mussel, Roger’s snaggletooth snail, tiger salamander, timber rattlesnake, jumping spider, common loon, red-tailed prairie leafhopper, wood frog, great plains toad, Blanding’s turtle, skipjack herring, tricolored bat, trumpeter swan, eastern bluebird, osprey, mudpuppy, golden-winged warbler, eastern hog-nose snake, pileated woodpecker, smoky shrew, wood turtle, American white pelican, piping plover, headwaters caddisfly, black tern, peregrine falcon, northern goshawk, slender madtom fish, boreal owl, rusty-patched bumble bee, red-shouldered hawk, yellow rail, plains pocket mouse, Juanita sphinx moth, northern bog lemming. And many more. During this season of giving, consider giving $40 for forty years to help Minnesota’s Nongame Wildlife Program continue its critical work to conserve wildlife species that aren’t hunted, from songbirds to salamanders, from butterflies to bats.

      Special fishing regulations will change March 1 on a number of Minnesota waters following an annual public input and review process, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Anglers need to know special regulations because they take precedence over statewide regulations,” said Al Stevens, fisheries program consultant with the DNR. “We have special regulations to improve fish populations and make fishing better or more sustainable.” Special regulations for individual waters are listed in a separate section of the Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet and at mndnr.gov/fishmn, and are posted at public accesses. For this spring, new statewide northern pike zone regulations that take effect on inland waters will make it possible to do away with several previously existing special regulations that apply to individual waters and aim for similar outcomes as the zone regulations. The new statewide pike regulations go into effect in time for the fishing opener on Saturday, May 12. On waters that have a special fishing regulation, anglers are required to follow the special regulation and unless otherwise mentioned, all other regulations apply. Public process for special regulations
      Special regulations are put in place after fisheries managers write plans for the lakes they oversee and each provides objectives for achieving management goals. Before changes are made to special regulations, the DNR evaluates each regulation, shares what’s found in the evaluations and angler surveys, hosts public input meetings in the fall and reviews comments from the public about the regulations. Goals of individual lake management plans also are considered. “We need the public to tell us what they want for the process to work well, and we do value the input,” Stevens said. For this spring, 29 lakes and connected waters were reviewed. Changes detailed
      Pelican Lake in St. Louis County: A special regulation on bass will be made permanent, while a regulation on northern pike will be dropped. An evaluation of the regulations showed that the 14-20 inch protected slot limit with one over 20 inches in possession on bass maintained a quality bass fishery, while allowing for an opportunity to harvest smaller bass. The regulation was generally popular with anglers and will continue. The 24-36 inch protected slot limit on northern pike provided some benefit to the pike population; however, the benefits of the regulation are similar to the new statewide zone regulation, which provides the opportunity to drop the regulation and simplify regulations complexity for anglers. Sand Lake and connected waters (Little Sand, Portage, and Birds Eye lakes) in Itasca County: A special regulation for northern pike will be dropped, and the lakes will change to the statewide limits. The new statewide zone regulation for northern pike will likely be just as effective as the special regulation in encouraging harvest of abundant small pike while improving sizes of pike. Big Swan Lake in Todd County: A 24-36 inch protected slot limit with only one fish over 36 inches will be made permanent after the review showed sizes of pike have improved. Also, the regulation’s expanded possession limit of six, with only one fish over 36 inches, will remain in effect as the number of small pike has continued to remain higher than desired. Balm, Big Bass, South Twin and Deer lakes in Beltrami County; Portage Lake in Cass County; and Flour, Hungry Jack and Two Island lakes in Cook County: These eight lakes with restrictive size regulations (either a 12-20 inch protected slot or catch-and-release only regulation) on bass will be modified to a less restrictive, 14-20 inch protected slot with one over 20 inches to allow additional harvest of small bass while still protecting quality sized fish. Although the existing regulations were shown to be effective, the new protected slot is expected to provide a similar protection to quality fish and with the added benefit of allowing additional harvest of abundant smaller bass. Itasca, Ozawindib and Mary lakes in Itasca State Park: Special regulations on sunfish, black crappie and bass for three lakes in the park will be standardized among the lakes. While the existing regulations largely have been effective and have been generally popular with park visitors, the DNR will standardize sunfish and crappie possession limits to five, drop a minimum size restriction on crappie for Ozawindib Lake and modify the current restrictive bass regulations (catch-and-release on Mary Lake and the 12-20 inch protected slot on Ozawindib Lake) to a 14-20 inch protected slot with one over 20 inches for both lakes. The goal is to simplify regulations for park visitors while maintaining fishing quality. Sissabagamah and Long lakes in Aitkin County: Special regulations on northern pike will be dropped in favor of the new statewide zone pike regulation. Some benefits to the sizes of pike have been seen since a protected slot regulation was enacted; however, the north-central zone pike regulations may provide a similar or even better outcome and also serve to reduce regulation complexity. Bass Lake in Todd County and Cedar Lake in Morrison County: Trophy regulations (40 inch minimum length requirement, possession limit of one) on northern pike will be modified to a 26 inch maximum with a possession limit of three. While trophy northern pike still exist, growth rates of smaller pike in these lakes have declined. Allowing harvest opportunity on pike under 26 inches may help the population while still protecting medium to large pike. Kraut, Peanut, North Shady, Squash and Tomato lakes in Cook County: Catch-and-release regulations on trout in these five lakes will be dropped this spring. Additionally, the ban on winter fishing and special tackle restrictions for these lakes will go away. The catch-and-release with tackle restrictions and the winter fishing closure did not meet management goals for these stocked trout fisheries. They are remotely located and special regulations and the closed winter season did not provide quality fishing in these lakes. But the same special regulations will continue on three other lakes – Thompson, Thrush and Turnip lakes – that were reviewed at the same time. Moody Lake in Crow Wing County: This lake will reopen to fishing after having been closed to fishing since 2001. Entirely located within an aquatic management area, the lake has been used as a fisheries research lake and at times was used for rearing walleye. It no longer is needed for that purpose and plans are to reclaim the lake by using rotenone to remove undesirable fish and then restock with walleye, yellow perch and bass, and implement a catch-and-release regulation to maintain quality sized fish for anglers to enjoy. Little Boy and Wabedo lakes in Cass County: These lakes will have an 18-26 inch protected slot, with one over 26 inches, in a possession limit of four walleye – which will be in effect for 10 years and then re-evaluated. The regulation was proposed in response to local requests to improve and protect the walleye population, which will likely benefit from restrictions on harvesting walleye longer than 18 inches. Visit mndnr.gov/fishmn for more information on special fishing regulations. Special regulations that change March 1 will be listed in the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet.
