So Much for Reuben Foster

If you haven’t heard yet, Reuben Foster was charged with felony domestic violence for inflicting ‘great bodily harm’ on his girlfriend and for various weapons charges. He’s looking at possibly 11 years in jail. And the Niners track record of drafting pass rushers who run foul of the law continues. We all saw the Aldon Smith re-re-re-arrest the other day as he posted a 0.40 BAC on his ankle monitor. That’s enough to get 3 normal people wasted, 2 heavy drinkers fucked up, and one maniac thrown in jail.

Not sure why these guys are hell-bent to sabotage themselves, but really. Is it that hard to stay out of trouble? I guess it could have turned out like the Aaron Hernandez case of murder. Shit, even Ray Lewis was tied to a shooting in Atlanta, but beating women up? Really? How dumb do you have to be to throw away a career worth 10s of millions of dollars just to smack your girl around? Gangbanging and hood type shit is one thing, but beating up your girl is lame as fuck.

    He shouldn’t last the day.

    Niners are doing this “wait and see” “let the legal process play out” utter bullshit. Look, this chick had a ruptured ear. Unless they think she did that to herself, how the fuck do you keep this guy around till the courts get thru with it? Terrible decision to not cut him immediately…..

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Well, the charges were just announced today so I’m hoping they do the right thing and cut him today.

    • Flavor says:

      they did their own internal investigation after this happened. I would hope that included something a little more comprehensive than asking Rueben if he did it. Finding out the extent of the girl’s injuries wasn’t hard to do, I am CERTAIN the Niners knew she had a ruptured ear (at the very least). It’s not like Lynch has just been sitting around waiting for the same stupid shit to hit twitter that we saw today. He knew. He had to unless he’s just had his head in the sand about this.
      And did you read the team statement? They aren’t cutting him today.

  4. Winder says:

    Maybe they are trying to trade him to the Raiders for a 6th.

  5. rtfirefly2 says:

    Foster’s arraignment is scheduled to begin at 2:30 PDT today. This, according to one of Maiocco’s tweets today describing the situation.
    Announcing the formal charges this morning was only the preliminary, letting peeps know what they’re going to do at the arraignment.

  6. Flavor says:

    there is widespread condemnation about the Niners failure to act across all media today. I think they will wake up and cut him but the damage was done with that bullshit team statement that said shit. It’s utterly inconceivable that this girl had her ear ruptured and he didn’t do it to her. The team talks big about change but it’s the same old bullshit and they are trying my patience as a fan. Cut this fucker IMMEDIATELY

  7. unca_chuck says:

    $75,000 bond and no contact with the victim. No, I hadn’t read the team statement till now:

    “The 49ers organization is aware of today’s disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster. We will continue to follow this serious matter. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.”

    They sure look like they want to sweep this under the rug. Hypocrites. They look as stupid as Harbaugh did when he chastised the Seahawks, and his brother for shit, and let the Ray Mac thing drag out.

    It’s only a matter of time, but they should get in front of this and cut him now.

  8. Lurker John says:

    What a fucking moron. Drafting a LB just moved to the top part of the list. One guy beats the shit out of women, another drinks so much he’s damn near comatose when they find him. I mean. WTF.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    If this doesn’t happen today, this will be a huge PR nightmare for the team. They’ve travelled down this road before like 17 times if you take into account the 49ers have the most arrests (17) since 2012.

    This is totally on the Yorks to release him.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, I don’t know, John.Everyone who has talked to him says what a nice guy he is. They all said the same thing about Aldon Smith. Sweet kid, wouldn’t hurt a fly, Some issues with weed, no biggie.

    It would be a real bitch to go from the top of the NFL world to state prison. But that’s why they call it reaping the whirlwind

  11. Winder says:

    Petty issues and anger, someone lashes out and there it is, it can’t be taken back. The prisons are full of people who fit that description. I don’t care what she said or did nothing is worse than what’s coming for Reuben. It truly is a childish act to beat up someone who is way weaker even if they take the first shot. The world is full of idiot bullys. The Niners should just cut him and get it over with. The Raiders will pick him up when he gets out of jail. Since it’s his first offense and he has money I doubt he gets over 2 years if that.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    My point is it’s hard to detect this kind of stuff. If it came down to a few petty crimes, there’d ba a lot less guys up for consideration in the draft.

    Aaron Hernandez certainly had a much more obvious trail of shitty behavior before he went over the edge in New England, but murder? Look at Rae Carruth. No one saw that kind of shit coming around the bend.

    I guess my point is you really don’t know what you are getting, but it is pretty damn clear what they should do NOW.

  13. Nipper says:

    He’s a goner no matter who issues a statement. It’s only a matter of time. The draft will
    reveal what the Niners really intend to do not a PR statement.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Dez Bryant was just released by the Cowboys. Crazy. Not living up to expectations is the word.

  15. Nipper says:

    I don’t mean to be crass, but someone has to pay off the girlfriend to drop the charges or just not come forward to prosecute the Foster case. Case never sees the light of day. The NFL gives out a harsh suspension and Foster proclaims he’ll never do it again……yeah sure he will. Niners either cut their losses or keep Foster for another season. This season may be lost for Foster no matter what happens. Even the Raiders will not pick him up. Ouch!

    • Winder says:

      If I am not mistaken the girl didn’t want to press charges but the DA went ahead and did. I could be wrong about that but I read that somewhere.

      • 12th Man says:

        It was the DA saying they would proceed without her testimony if necessary, meaning they already have very strong evidence.

  16. alleykat69 says:

    Well if she doesn’t testify this case has a chance to fold up like a cheap suit.
    Didn’t the 49ers dump Tremaine Brock before all the evidence came out? And he was exnoreted of the charges cause the case was flimsy.Now granted Brock wasn’t a 1st rounder so maybe the 49ers didn’t give a shit,but their gonna let this one play out thru the legal system just like the Aldon Smith days cause of their success potential on the field unfortunately…

    • Winder says:

      Aldon had multiple chances and blew it with remarkable speed. Foster is a kid and maybe should be given a second chance but the crime is a real bad one and it shows a true character flaw. I am all for second chances but this one it is really difficult to work around. I am not sure if he was drunk or high at the time. If he was neither then there is probably some serious Personal issues going on. I do know that playing judge is not for me.

      • 12th Man says:

        I’m with you on the second chance thing in general and that waiting for a conviction is the right thing to do, but I can’t find a work around for 8 to 10 punches to the head bursting an ear drum.
        Now that is known, and that the DA goes ahead even without her testimony, it’s hard to see how they can keep him and I doubt they will.

    • 12th Man says:

      In Brocks case there was very little physical evidence, and the woman refused to testify so the DA dropped it.

  17. alleykat69 says:

    Agree with you 12th on the 8-10 punches to the head and rupturing a eardrum that’s just a sick cowardly bastard to do something like that!
    I still remember the time when Lawrence Phillips was playing for Nebraska and he dragged his girlfriend by her hair down 3 flights of stairs WTF?? Then he still gets to the pros because of his football potential and teams brushing it under the rug, that does piss me off! Unfortunately it happens every year to every team nobody is immune to it..
    And to top it off,the 49ers fell for it and signed his pathetic ass( think it was his last stop)and he ended Steve Young’s career by missing a block on Andeans(sp) Williams of the Cardinals who creamed Young and suffered a career ending concussion .

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, I couldn’t believe we took a flyer on Phillips. That backfired terribly for the Niners. Was that Donohue?

  19. alleykat69 says:

    Actually I believe it was “The Genius “ Bill Walsh who was the GM 1999-2001 who brought this dumbshit in thinking he could get lighting in a bottle instead one of his worse moves ever..

  20. alleykat69 says:

    Donahue was the GM from 2001-2004
    Followed by Scot “I’ll have another Scotch” McCloughan 2005-2009
    Next up are whipping boy Trent Baalke 2010-2016
    And now finally/hopefully a competent man in John Lynch 2017-present

  21. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah we need to hit a winner Nipper not just woman🤕

  22. Winder says:

    Young was getting pounded on a regular basis by the time Phillips missed his block. I remember we played Tampa Bay and Sapp just creamed him. It was the same game that Rice had to be taken out. .

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Young had taken a ton of shots his whole career. Wasn’t that the first game of that season, Winder? When Rice went down?
