‘The guy got caught with cocaine’

Truer words never have been shouted. I write "shouted" because Joey Porter (right) doesn’t speak, he shouts.

The Miami Dolphins linebacker was on the mark when talking about Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones, who was arrested for felony cocaine possession in July but hasn’t missed a game because of a pending three-game suspension appeal.

"He got caught with cocaine and Matt Jones is still playing football. How does he get away with that?" Porter said in an ESPN.com story. "And then you fine people $20,000 for making comments to the media about the refs. The guy got caught with cocaine."

Porter should be perplexed. He was fined said amount for criticizing a ref earlier this season, and players get suspended all the time for violent hits. But somehow this guy gets to skate — for now — for cocaine possession?

Jones agreed to enter a treatment program that could erase the charge. The guy should just volunteer to sit out regardless of how his appeal turns out.
