UPDATE 3:45 p.m. EST: A Redskins spokesman tells Pro Football Talk that Banks is fine. He'll receive stitches and be released Saturday. Banks' friend remains in critical condition.

----------

NBC 4 in Washington reports that Redskins punt returner Brandon Banks has been hospitalized after his involvement in a double stabbing early Saturday morning. Banks is said to be in stable condition with superficial knife wounds.

Police say an argument broke out around 3:00 a.m. at a 14th Street NW club. The argument escalated into a fight, which escalated into a stabbing. A suspect, who is now in custody, attacked Banks and Banks' companion. That companion is reportedly in critical condition.

You will probably be after the amazing conditions and a blog page site, men's. I have been previously generally a fabulous book lover on the web-site.

Im actually not out chasing "chicks"... I'm married moron, I'm sure you are still 'available' (with your sparkling personality). You still haven't told me how old you are Warner... I'm guessing mid to late 40's because your insults are old man weak. Please leave your moms basement one of these days, it's a crazy world out there. Keep trying to "own me", you have failed miserably thus far. I find it extra pathetic that you go out of your way to reply to each and every one of my posts, do you have that much time on your hands? Go help your mom with the dishes or something, try to resemble a functioning member of society.

Let us not think that LilRichy will live his life in a bubble.  We all know he lives in an igloo.  I noticed how he said he and his friends stay out and party until 3 or 4 in the morning.  That is code for me and my ugly friends can't score any chicks so we are always the last ones at the bar.  Everyone knows the hot chicks are gone by midnight or one.  After that are the dorks and the fat ugly chicks.  HAHAHAHA...owned again loser.

I meant exactly what I said.  My original post had nothing to do with race.  I was suggesting that pro-athletes will never learn – even after situations such as Roethlisberger's and Burress'. What about Paul Pierce?  Could you imagine if he had been stabbed to death before his career took off?  It almost happened.  Then you have more idiots like Pacman Jones and (I hate to assume fault, but..) this clown, Banks.

What prompted me to delve into race was a suggestion that that my OP was directing criticism at black athletes.  Now that I've made myself clear, maybe you can do us all a favor and fact gather before you attempt your version of critical thinking.

 What time you stay out til has nothing to do with being responsible. Im sure it is a reflection of the age of the people making these comments, so I won't bring that up again. Crazy shit happens, it can happen at any time. My aunt was killed by a drunk driver at 8pm,,, should I be in my house by 7:59? Come on, that's just not realistic. Young people hang out late, that's just the way it is and that's why clubs are open til 3am (where I am) Im sorry for your loss with regards to your friend etc, but he's not in the wrong just because he's out with some friends at a club. He, and his lady friend, are the victims here... Let's not try and spin this story. Me and my friends go out on the weekends and party til 3 or 4 am and very rarely have any issues. Is it more likely something will happen at 3am than noon? sure, but I'm not about to live my life in a bubble because a few people on a CBS sports message board are old and can't relate.

ItWasntpine..

You sound ridiculous.  In one breath, you state you actually meant pro athlete, then in the next breath, you bring in your theory about black hockey players.  You sound like the guy who says, "I'm not racist..one of my best friends is Black."

You may want to get a grip and watch what you say.

I actually meant pro athletes club hopping all night.  But, since you've decided to bring race into the equation, I don't see any hockey players getting stabbed at 3am in the morning.  STOP–before you even say it, there are only like 15 black hockey players in the NHL.  It won't take a scientific method to arrive at the theory of black athelete (and Big ben) and clubs don't mix.

..and, whoever brought up race is definitely a black guy and a racist.

richyriches,

I've lost a close friend to a drunk driving accident that happened around 1:30 AM, and have had a friends dad hit by a drunk driver after coming back from a Wizards game. When I say "nothing good happens after midnight" I have had experiences to make me believe this to be true. I'm not saying you have to be in your house watching re-runs of Will and Grace but how many of these players do we have to hear about getting a DUI, stabbed, shot, killed, etc.. at a nightclub during the twilight hours before they learn? And it doesn't matter what race they are I don't know why people have to keep bringing that up.

We all know that dacey's post is what's real, and all that really matters.
She is a genius poster and I appreciate it.
Time for me to shut up now.

I hear ya, GoBlues.  Jim Brown (me) hasn't exactly been a saint.  But the post containing "might has well have said black pro athletes will never learn" - something like that - was my target.  And there may be a few more names.  Ya think?  Wink

who exactly is they?? pro athletes or black pro athletes?

Could it be the poster was just talking about generic idiots ... in general?
Could be.  Maybe probably not.
But you saw it in his mind, I know.  You know.
