I agree the Bengals need help, but what help is he going to be if he keeps getting in trouble and can't play due to suspensions?? - Terri, Cincinnati, OH

I had faith in the Bengal's that they were going to come back and show us the real tigers inside of them. I don't see how they expect to do that with Mr. Chris Henry back in the picture. He has caused so many problems not only with the team but with the moral of our city. How can you be proud of a player who can not be a role model to our children and our city? The city ends up paying more attention to the trouble that he gets into, rather than the other members of the team who are out there doing their best to not only win, but be a good citizen and someone to be looked up to by our city's youth. When these children see this man in a "dream job" so to say and see him getting into trouble constantly, they begin to believe that if you have talent you are above the law and can get away with anything. How does this help them to become hard working, law biting citizens that appreciate and earn what they have? It can't, because they believe that if you are someone important, you can get away with anything.

I know Chris Henry is a talented player, that goes without saying. However, what does talent mean when you can't be a respectable adult in a professional field?

I'm not too much into the Bengals or football in general but i believe he shouldn't be back here in Cincinnati or any team he seems to me too immature to be on a professional team of any sports. I am so glad i have no kids young enough to follow his bad footsteps. My kids are old enough to know better and to know right from wrong unlike henry.
