Steelers kicker Reed cited for public intoxication
Monday, October 19, 2009
By Dan Gigler, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers kicker Jeff Reed was given a citation for public intoxication and disorderly conduct around 9 p.m. last night outside of McFadden's bar on the North Shore, according to Pittsburgh Police.

Police said that he will be mailed a summons to Pittsburgh City Court.

Earlier this year, Mr. Reed, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and criminal mischief after police said he damaged a paper towel dispenser and harassed employees at a Sheetz convenience store in New Alexandria in February.

In that incident, witnesses told police that Mr. Reed, 30, went into the store bathroom and then became infuriated that there were no towels in the dispenser. He began banging on the dispenser and hurling profanities at employees, even after leaving the store.

Mr. Reed received a summary citation and was fined $543.50, which includes $210 in restitution to the store.

No real shock value here, but if Mr. Goodell is reading the P-G, there could be a problem.

Talk about a guy who is doing everything he can to get out of the 'Burgh...  So much goodwill being wasted on this guy.  Lovable Skippy keeps getting his name in the news and for all the wrong reasons. 

Here's hoping this forces him to rededicate himself but if not, I am liking the Purdue kicker for next season.

A question, though: If Reed is suspended for multiple games this season, what will we do?


 I can't imagine how pissed I will be if we have some FA douchebag kicker that comes in and misses a bunch of field goals at Heinz, just because Reed is out of control.

Dude, it was Cleveland.  Act like you've been there before.

And totally trashed before 9 oclock when game ended at 4:15?  Plus postgame, showers, all that other crap.  "Mr. Reed" was hitting it hard.

Sounds like a combo to me.  I mean, yeah, I can theoretically get hammered by 9, assuming I'm starting around 6, and I'm drinking bourbon, straight, quickly.

But somehow methinks all this erratic behavior is more than just wine spritzers.  Don't know if he's smoking, doing pills, whatever, but sure sounds like he's an artist of mixed media.

What an idiot.  It's a damn shame he's such a good bad weather kicker, because I have a strong feeling Skippy might be in his last year with the PS.

No real shock value here,

You can say that again.  Stories of Reed at the Igloo club at Mellon arena are well known.  Security basically has to kick him out because he stays well after the game is over, getting drunk, acting like an ass and hitting on 17-18 year old girls.  I heard this straight from an employee at Mellon Arena who I have known for years.

sounds like something that would happen out front of 200 Fifth after a Steeler win if BleedGreen would come to Brooklyn and watch a game....

Agree that multiple substances may be involved, but sounds like alcohol is definitely primary and could be only substance involved.  Either way, dude needs help.  And if he doesn't come out and seek it quickly, I suspect he will be allowed to finish his contract and then quietly ushered out the door.

And Spaeth, come on, find a bathroom.  you're 6'7", 270.  Not like you're blending into the background.

Yeah.  Not professional in any sense.

Spaeth needs a different role model.  And a reverse-Whizzinator.  You know, after the last bar piss you tuck your Johnson in a tube that goes to some bottle that collects any uncontrollables.

This jogged a memory I had long-forgotten. I, too, was caught by Pittsburgh Police urinating in public in Pittsburgh (albeit in the wee hours of the morning - not 9 p.m. - and when I was but in college). However, unlike Spaeth, I avoided being ticketed. Perhaps that was because my buddy didn't attempt to fight the cops.

BTW, Fuck Spaeth. That guy is pretty worthless...and now he's getting our kicker arrested.

If Skippy gets suspended, I hope the team suspends Spaeth, too.

The lingering question in my mind is whether Reed even finishes the season with the Steelers given that this is not the first instance of this behavior.

Of course, you guys are assuming that it all started after the game was over.

Let's see...

Drilled two FGs yesterday, at home.
Missed FGs @ Chicago and @ Cincy.

My suggestion...two sideline coolers.  One filled with Reed's drink of choice, the other with Gatorade for the remaining 52.

I know Reed does many a douchy thing, but he's a helluva good Heinz Field kicker. How devastating would it be if we had to pin our hopes on a Kris Brown-esque kicker again?

That said, I saw Reed's family when I stopped at training camp this past summer. From sheer looks and this incident alone, I have to say that Jeff Reed's dad is trying to be the next Joe Simpson (Jessica and Ashlee's dad).

I think if the price is right, I'm completely willing to overlook towel dispenser beat-downs and public intox event for the traditionally steady Jeff Reed.

Don't know if I'm in agreement with that.  I think the dude needs to get his head on straight, then I'd be willing ot resing him.  Let him spend the offseason at the Betty Ford Clinic--if we get him through this year without a suspension.

As for Spaeth:  Dude, you suck.  You are not a starter.  You are not even that good.  The last thing you need to be doing is hitting the bottle and pissing on your vehicle.  Dang dude, keep a big Mountain Dew bottle in there if it's that bad.

And how about go hit the weight room after your typically worthless performance instead of going to McFadden's.

The Maurice Clarett Operating Procedure.  Get yer Goose on wit yer pads on.  Hell, guys like Riggins did it back in the day, Reed's just showing he's not some modern fancy-boy.

My question is, why was Skippy's pops driving?  Vicariously living through the party boy son and his 7' tall small-bladdered companion?  Spaeth is like the sasquatch in those jerky ads, except he's not hairy, and he can't get mad and do anything to the bobos who taunt him, so he's more like some pathetic misunderstood sasquatch who pisses in the parking lot and gets busted.

The more that I think about this, the more I don't see any way whatsoever Reed is a Steeler next year (and I'm still not sure he will survive the year).  Its really hard to find guys who remained a Steeler after screwing up multiple times (especially the same way).  Moreover Reed's productivity won't matter, up to and including Pro Bowl status.  If you disagree, I give you two words - Carlton Hasselrig.

obviously we're all Reed fans here but according to the report he "squared up" to the cops and got away with a "simple" assault....what the hell is "simple" assault?  with cops there?  any one of us would've gotten tossed in the tank if we even sneezed anything near what Reed did. 

I have no point, just sayin.

Reed will play in Steelers game Sunday
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin said today that kicker Jeff Reed will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings even though he was cited by police last Sunday night on several charges after a confrontation outside a North Side bar.

Last year, Tomlin made starting wide receiver Santonio Holmes inactive for a game against the New York Giants after Holmes was given a citation by police for marijuana possession on the Thursday night before the game.

In describing the differences, Tomlin said the Holmes incident was a possible distraction because it occurred later in the week and he deactivated him to minimize the distraction. He said it was "not punitive". Because Reed's incident happened on Sunday, they have "an opportunity to address it," Tomlin said.

Reed was cited for simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkeness after he confronted police outside a North Side bar as they were issuing a citation for disorderly conduct to tight end Matt Spaeth for urinating in a parking lot.

Speaking of those commercials and the Steelers, one of the stars of the Coors Light Presser commercials was sitting in the section next to mine at the Steelers/Titans season opener this year. I didn't recognize him until my homeboy pointed him out.
