http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/20/jared-allen-goes-off/

We've taken very seriously the debate that emerged last week regarding whether it was appropriate for someone to tape the candid remarks of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and then upload them to the Internet (http://deadspin.com/5516297/slurring-jerry-jones-bad+mouths-bill-parcells-tim-tebow?skyline=true&s=i). Though some made good points in support of a decision not to post the video (or, once posted, to publicize it), we continue to believe that, in this age of information, public figures in inherently public settings speak and/or act at their own peril.

In 1984, George Orwell envisioned a future in which Big Brother would be monitoring our every move. Little did he know that Big Brother would not be the government, but a populace armed individually with a device for instantaneously recording video and audio. Folks who "get it" factor this reality into everything they say and do.

So even though Jones wasn't speaking at a press conference or in an "on-the-record" interview, he had left the privacy of his home and/or place of business, and he was speaking to strangers. Whether they had repeated what he said or obtained more reliable evidence of it, we think that, in this day and age, it's fair game.

Applying that same standard, it's also fair game to point out that TMZ has video evidence of Vikings defensive end Jared Allen (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=2837) going bonkos at a Scottsdale, Arizona bar. "I'll break your f--king neck, pretty boy (http://www.tmz.com/2010/04/19/jared-allen-video-bar-fight-nfl-minnesota-vikings-scottsdale-arizona/)," Allen says, "and then I'll write a f--king check to your name, too."

Apparently, the man to whom Allen's venom was directed had had hurled an offensive four-letter word at Allen's girlfriend.

Allen's representative at EAG Sports Management reportedly said in the aftermath of the incident, "No matter what, Jared will always protect and defend his family."

That's fine, but in this era of heightened sensitivity to the stuff that happens in public (including but not limited to the Rex Ryan middle finger fiasco from late January), guys who may have short fuses need to be even more careful when out in public.

This is the kind of stuff that people will say "See, the guys a timebomb. It was good to get rid of him."

I say so what? Everyone on this board would react the same way if someone said something like that to our girlfriends/spouses (never should they meet.)

I'm not one to fight over something that someone says to me. Call my wife a cunt though, and we're gonna throw.

I figure the guy flirted with her and she treated him like he didn't have 70 million in the bank.

Reminds me of the exchange between Jim Rome and "Chris" Everett.

What I don't get is why people like him even bother going to bars in the first place. If you want to socialize invite some peeps over to your house where you're in control of who is around you.

ESPECIALLY jared with all the alcohol related problems in his past.

if he was still in the substance program would he be suspended?

lol, the Pacman defense. Then go to a nice restaurant, god knows there's plenty of them in Scottsdale. Don't go to a place where the majority of the clientele is there to drink.

nah, he knew jarred couldn't/wouldn't do anything. you have that kind of money and a career in the public spotlight you have to just learn to take the abuse. Sports figures are role models worthy of emulation.....

It does show that a guy with a history of bad judgment is still putting himself in bad situations. He's a freakin' NFL player with a lot to lose, you just have to walk away from shit like that.

I guess Roethisburger had better watch out who he says he'd like to molest in a men's room.

jared allen is very visible in old town scottsdale during the offseason and owns a bar/restaurant here (the lodge). it happens to be across the street from my office so i see ja a lot. while he is always out and about, i've never seen him drinking and he's always really friendly to everyone when i've been around...even chiefs' fans.

just my 2 cents.

Huh, I wonder if that is where this happened at, if he owned the place that would certainly justify him being there. You still have to walk away.

Nothing personally with Jared, I just don't get why any high profile NFL player would hang around in a bar/nightclub. You're just asking for trouble by being there.

Does Jared strike you as the kind of guy who likes to sit home and play Trivial Pursuit?

04-20-2010, 09:43 PM
no but he has had problems with alcohol in the past and needs to keep a squeky clean rep these days , it sounds to me like he was just protecting his girl though which is totallu understandable to me.

JFC. Not going to a bar doesn't mean staying at home all the time. He actually strikes me as the type of guy who might like to hunt and fish and go camping and that sort of stuff. The possibilities are endless when you have that kind of money. Why waste your time hanging out in a fucking bar?

HotRoute
04-20-2010, 11:59 PM
