Joey Porter: Froot Loop

Joey Porter is not living on the same planet as the rest of us. If he is not allowing his dogs to rip apart some miniature ponies, he is making out with Bill Cowher on the sidelines of a nationally televised NFL game.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

But Porter might have really jumped into the deep-end recently. Porter has never really been a fan of the officials, as he accused them of favoring the referees in the AFC playoffs last season. And you know, he was probably right. Porter recently drew a $15K fine for unsportsmanlike conduct for remarks he made to an official. Seems harmless right? ESPN stated that Porter told a referee that he would "come after him."

Now, it's not like a referee doesn't deserve a smack in the face now and then. Especially with some of the play calls this season. Like it wouldn't have been out of line if, say, Roy Williams had smacked a referee after that ridiculous 15-yard face-mask penalty at the end of the Cowboys/Redskins game. That seems reasonable, right?

But Porter is a little too out there. The official could have just been asking Porter how his day was going. It is hard to side with him on this one because he is a full-fledged Froot Loop.
