Joey Porter vs. Levi Jones and it doesn’t even cost $49.95!

We heard the other day that a video of the Las Vegas Palms casino brawl between Levi Jones and Joey Porter had surfaced, but we kept thinking that this was just some ruse to get us all excited before an eventual letdown. You know, kinda like when you finally saw Ghost Rider. But we were wrong, the video actually exists and Porter actually is a cheap shot artist.

And you thought that Joey was just faking insanity when he did the “Dean Scream” (or any of the dozen or so other incidents) during the Monday Night Football lineups.

Goodell’s conduct policy already having an effect

Joey Porter is listening

Joey Porter may be a blowhard and a tool but he’s no fool. A day after Roger Goodell announced his new conduct policy and dropped the hammer on Pacman Jones and Chris Henry, Joey decided he better make nice to Levi Jones for (according to Levi) ambushing him out in Las Vegas.

I wish it never would have happened. I don’t know how Levi feels, but the faster we can get this behind us, (the better).

I don’t mind calling him. If he truly believes, if he feels like I was wrong, I’m sorry. I can apologize. I am reaching out now.

At the end of the day, none of us is going to get anything good out of this.

You see Joey working here? By “none of us” he means himself. Having your posse ambush another football player and being charged with misdemeanor battery falls within the personal conduct policy. It’s amazing how a threat of losing paychecks immediately puts everyone in line. Goodell got exactly the reaction he was looking for.

Levi Jones calls Joey Porter a coward

A couple of weeks ago, Joey Porter was arrested for punching Levi Jones in the face. It was widely reported that Levi was knocked down and had to be treated for a gash above his eye. Well, Levi Jones would like you to know that he’s tougher than that.

It was problematic for me and my family, especially when the true story wasn’t out there. The particulars about how everything went down, I mean, ESPN, all they wanted to report was Joey Porter hit me in the face.

Six guys attacked me from behind before he did it. When the true story came out, ESPN still didn’t want to report it.

He (Porter) got my attention from the front and wouldn’t get near me until the six guys jumped me from behind, (then) he took part.

First of all, ESPN not reporting all the facts in the story? Shocking. Second, if true, Levi Jones’s account of the fight fits right in line with how we feel about Joey Porter. It wouldn’t suprise us in the least if Porter was the type to let his buddies do the work.

Joey Porter punches Levi Jones in the face

A football player got arrested in an incident with a Cincinnati Bengal and it wasn’t a Bengal! Marvin Lewis certainly is turning that team around. Hell, the Bengal was even the victim.

Joey Porter, perhaps feeling disrespected, punched Levi Jones in the face at the Palms in Las Vegas yesterday. Police said that Porter was cited for battery and Levi Jones was treated at the scene. Said Las Vegas police Lt. Kevin McMahill:

Apparently these two have a history with each other, a history of trash talking on the field.

Doesn’t Joey Porter have a history with everyone? If you don’t want to get punched in the face, avoid Joey Porter like the plague. We imagine he’s like Rick James (insanity not coke) and forgets he punches people five minutes later.

Things ought to get interesting on the field this year as the Dolphins play the Bengals in Porter’s new house.
