Oh boy! Vince Young attacked an employee of the Dallas strip club

From Deadspin:

Creiton Kinchen, a club employee, had what looked like some good-natured ribbing for Young. Kinchen, you see, is from Oklahoma, and flashed Young an upside-down "Hook 'em Horns" gesture. Young went after him, splitting his lip. Here's where we'll point at that absolutely no one in Texas is blaming Young right now. An upside-down "Hook 'em Horns" is apparently the equivalent of burning a flag; Young could have murdered the guy, and he'd probably still be charged with the same Class C misdemeanor he's facing now. Think I'm exaggerating? Here's the lede paragraph from the Dallas Morning News, emphasis mine:

Police cited NFL quarterback Vince Young in the assault of a man who disrespected the University of Texas Longhorns inside a northwest Dallas strip club early Sunday morning."

Here in journalism, we have what's called the inverted pyramid. It means you write your story never assuming that the reader will read the whole thing, so you put the most important information at the top.

I think we can all agree here that Texas fans are pretty insufferable, especially when it comes to Vince Young. You can read some of their fine banter on this subject here.

Oh, and yes, Vince will be suspended by the NFL for this. So, like last year, we should expect to see Kerry Collins as the starting quarterback for the Titans in Week One. Interesting dilemma: What if Kerry plays well and the Titans win?
