Well with Cook out due to incarceration & Winfield doubtful against our biggest rivalry, it looks like Marcus Sherels will get the nod.

With Green Bays 5 WR sets, we are gonna need them all..

Is he a total idiot and piece of shit human being? Without question. Has he been our best cover corner all year? Without question. I'm just as unhappy with him as the rest of you. That being said, we would be retarded to cut him. He is the only player on our team that can cover a #1 receiver. Not to mention that he is only 24 years old. I'm not saying that I'm going to go buy his jersey. But I would support OJ Simpson for CB if he could lockdown a #1 receiver for us. Without Cook, our secondary completely falls apart. If our secondary falls apart, we are the worst team in the NFL.

Man or woman who he was with at 4 AM is his business but when he chokes them out then he gots to go.

No matter what talent he might eventually develop this is his second infraction this year and while you might give him a flyer on the first one, this one would be over the top.

That being said you are presumed innocent until proven guilty and I would like to hear both sides of the story on the remote chance that things are not what they seem.

Well first of all, he was acquitted of all charges on the first arrest. So it wouldn't be fair to call this strike 2 with us or the NFL. Second of all, I call BS on anyone here that claims they wouldn't start Ray Lewis at MLB on this team, due to his murder allegations that he bought his way out of. Fine him and put him on a zero tolerance policy. We did that with Everson Griffen and it's worked just fine. We can't afford to lose this guy.

With that said, as much as I would love pro athletes to uphold a higher standard, I am resigned to the fact that I really don't care what these guys do in their spare time, as long as they perform on Sunday.

Yes, it is strike 2 because he has gotten targeted by law enforcement twice. That indicates a possible trend. Yes, he was exonerated on the first one and I don't hold it against him as a single issue, but if he continue to invite law enforcement scrutiny then it becomes a pattern. But as I said, if evidence comes out in the future that he did nothing wrong I will be fine with him.

Ray was also found innocent and as far as I know he has had no further brushes with the law. If he choked his girlfriend then do you think I would want him on the team? You are mistaken.

I agree, but I also believe in patterns. If he is acquited of this, good for him. To me he has established himself a pattern of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He really needs to examine his life choices.

I hope the team suspends him for the rest of the season. Next year if he has no further infractions he could come back. Likely though the union fights for his right to play until convicted, which probably wont come til after the season. Then we start next season without him.

I see little chance of him being cut, they simply have too much invested in him, very few NFL players get cut based on off the field things, unless they get long prison sentences(vick, burress). I doubt Cook goes to prison.

I disagree to a point.
I think you need guys who work hard, and are unselfish. Sometimes guys can be total asswipes off the field but be good guys in the locker room, and on the field. Ben Roethlisburger comes to mind, total sleaze douche bag, but he has 2 superbowl rings, and is the leader of his team.
Plaxico Burress, Michael Irvin, Lawrence Taylor, Ray Lewis, all also have superbowl rings.

Yes, high priced lawyers help, but the victims almost ALWAYS change their story in domestic abuse cases, so that wasn't anything surprising. What else was offered that was so convincing that it was self defense?

They got expert witnesses that said
1. The marks on her neck were not from strangulation but more likely caused by her earring.
2. They said the spot in her eyes were not from increased hypoxia or intracranial pressure (strangulation). They were most likely cause from him slapping her like he said he did.

He is a man that got jealous from her text, he broke her phone, she threw some stuff at him, he got mad and slapped her. It wasn't self defense but he didn't try to choke her to death. The truth is always somewhere in between.

While unlikely, it's possible a large hand can rupture an eardrum without a lot of force. Eardrums are (obviously) inaccessible to direct force by a slap. They rupture because of pressure within the ear canal. It only take like 5psi. So if he's defending himself and goes to push her off by the head, his palm could pretty easily cover her whole ear and create that 5psi.

If she's wildly attacking him, he could easily hurt her while just trying to defend himself.

We know nothing about the girl, but everything I just wrote is pretty unlikely, but certainly within the realm of possibility.

A single slap isn't really a beating....

And from what little we hear, it "might" have been warranted.

Sometimes women are the aggressor - mostly because they know that we are always the primary suspect.

Doesn't mean I agree with what happened, doesn't mean I agree with the verdict - simply offering another potential point of view.

But a single slap could very easily rupture an ear drum, provided that slap covered the entire ear are, and was driven with sufficient force - both of which He could accomplish.

I completely get what you are saying, and I am not disagreeing with you. I would like to think that he should have been able to walk away. But I wasn't there. And I have to say that we can't assume that someone small can't hurt someone much larger than them. Assuming that he was the aggressor just because of his size is wrong. Breaking an ear drum is actually surprisingly easy.

Cook acting in self defense isn't all that far fetched. And considering how fast the jury turned around this verdict, either there was some grain of truth to his story, or we just witnessed the most inept prosecution in the history of the state. Possibly both.

Vikings will bring back Chris Cook | ProFootballTalk (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/24/vikings-will-bring-back-chris-cook/)

Part of the problem here is our current legal system and it's complete lack of common sense.

There is an old saying, "Don't poke the bear". The reason is, if you poke the bear,m the bear will eat you. Is it the bear's fault? Not really...after all, YOU poked it.

Our society used to function a lot like that too. You simply didn't go up to people who were bigger, stronger, or meaner than you and run your pie-hole, or slap them, or throw things at them because...

...and this should be no surprise...

...you'd get your ass kicked. Well and truly kicked.

Problem is, we're supposed to be civilized. We're SUPPOSED to be above violence (we're not...but the fluffy people like to pretend we are, and they have all the talk shows). So, what happens now is that you poke the bear, the bear growls a bit, and you poke it again, and again, and again until the bear snaps and swats you....

...and the bear goes to jail and gets a felony record for domestic abuse.

Now, I agree that domestic ABUSE is wrong. Beating up someone smaller or weaker than you for no reason is wrong. Berating someone smaller or weaker and intimidating them into eating it is wrong. The job of the stronger is to PROTECT the weaker, not beat them down.

But the job of the weaker is to respect that strength, and to control the way in which they conduct themselves. Not to hide behind the law and say or do whatever they want while their anger rages, knowing that the LAW will punish the stronger for any retaliation. That's just as wrong.

I don't know what happened in Chris Cooks home that night. Maybe he's a douche bag, or maybe he was simply pushed beyond the point that he should have been pushed. The courts found him innocent, so I'll go with that for now.

...but we'll be watching. Hopefully they both learned that there are better ways to communicate.
