Porter will not be suspended following apology

Joey Porter will not be suspended for his insubordination. Whether he will be fined for refusing to leave the field during Sunday's 48-28 loss to New England when coach Tony Sparano ordered him to do so remains unclear.

Porter will not have to worry about a suspension, in part, because on Monday he apologized to Sparano for his conduct. So if Sparano was considering a suspension, that thought is gone.

Porter went further than merely apologizing to the coach. He also apologized to teammates later Monday afternoon in front of Sparano. The apologies were confirmed during The Miami Touchdown Club meeting Tuesday that various members of the team's organization attended.

The Dolphins are not commenting on Porter's apology. The Dolphins aren't even confirming Porter apologized. The Dolphins aren't even confirming they play the St. Louis Rams Sunday. Kidding.

Sparano wants his players focusing on Sunday's game against St. Louis and the less he talks about this, the more likely that is to happen. So don't expect a lot of talk about this Wednesday when the team gathers for the week's first day of Rams prep.

What remains unclear is if Porter was fined for his insubordination. I wrote this column for Mother Herald making the point that Porter should absolutely NOT be suspended, but that he should be fined.

In the Spanish American War, when the U.S. kicked Spains butt, they looked at the new possesions from Spain, they took Puerto Rico, and the Philippines, after looking at Cuba, they threw it back in the Ocean, now we know why.

Jets are the team that all new entries to the NFL should try to copy.Adopt a logo of an aircraft that can fall from the sky at any time!Give your first choice of a name to a city that can actually win a title with said nickname.In the 48 years said team has played in the leauge win more than 1 title.Get new uniforms and quit changing helmets and or logos and or well you know.Act like you belong in the NFL.Do not locate team in a city where you will always be second fiddle(sucking hind teat).Get your own stadium named after your own team.When the above are completed ask for reinstatement to pro football.GO JETTTSSS.Faggottsss.

That Should Be Your People From My People.

Mando-why do my posts say I am spamming? This is B.S. I post all the time and on game day.I am pissed.I do not spam or eat spam.Fix this.

What seems to be deflected with all this BS is the simple reason we lost to the Patriots. The front 3 plus Porter did not put Cassell on his back when they were man up against the NE offensive line. How many plays did we see with an open backfield? 5 Receivers no help to stop the pass rush and we didn't get there. One sack from Porter when he was single teamed? I'd say the man got handled... The defensive line got handled... Even when we blitzed we got handled.

You want to apologize Joey, apologize for not getting the job done and forcing the secondary to hold coverage for 6 seconds.

Menace - do you have a job?
