Jermaine O'Neal once was suspended for throwing a punch at a fan. Marcus Camby bloodied his own coach while trying to deck an opposing player nearly six years ago.

The Pacers took another public relations hit before the season when Stephen Jackson, also suspended after the brawl at Auburn Hills, was arrested and charged with firing a gun outside a strip club. But O'Neal wondered why there is rarely talk about similar problems in the NFL - eight Cincinnati Bengals have been arrested this season alone.

My favorite player and my favorite NFL team, in the same paragraph. I knew Jack would be mentioned somewhere, but damn. It never ends with these journalists.
