There's no point in watching TNT now. The ratings are going to drop...

Wow. I'm sure TNT told him to stay away till it cools down. Wonder if they'll talk about it...

Good riddance anyways.

A pretty dumb move by TNT. If Barkley stays, he gets chided for a week from Kenny and Ernie about his stupid move, then everyone moves on and it's fine. But now, everyone's going to keep talking about it. It becomes a storyline of its own. "When's Barkley Coming Back?"

Aren't people going to be watching TNT for the actual basketball game that is going on, not the halftime show?

I highly doubt that this is going to hurt TNT. Besides a lot of people find Barkley very annoying which I could somewhat understand

How are you people so sure that this is TNT's decision?

If I was Chuck I would request to take leave too, at least until this cools down.

What he said to the cop was downright embarassing, especially considering he's married.

Uhh Well what did he say?

No need for teases this is not sports talk radio!

Ok FOund it:

Chuck was looking for some action (http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2008/12/31/2008-12-31_charles_barkley_admitted_he_was_looking_.html)

I won't miss Barkley ! He was a good basketball player but he's a "terrible" analyst. He is only on TNT as a laughable side kick.
He definitely has a gambling and alcohol problem !

Ok Found it: Leave it to Laker fans to get things done:

Chuck was looking for some action (http://thelakersnation.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9601&pid=167110&st=0&#entry167110)

He said he was going around the corner to get a BJ. That's why he ran the stop sign.

Do you guys think they'll bring in C-Webb and GP (http://davissportsdeli.com/wordpress/2009/01/09/barkley-takes-leave-of-absence/)to replace the viewers lost by Charles? On an interim basis of course (until Chuck comes back).

Something tells me this is more about TNT not wanting him on the air than anything. They have a "good" image to maintain and that's not going to happen if they're parading degenerates around on the air.

This is for his own good. Deal with his issues and hopefully come back. He was one of the few athletes who told it like it is and even as he retired he never waivered. He won my respect when he came out against College Football and blasted them and Auburn for their hiring process, regarding Afican American coaches. We need him healthy and sober.

Chuck, you need to handle your problem.

why would u think otherwise that it wasnt TNT's decision to make him leave.

This is Chuck we're talking about he probably would have gone back on the air and started talking about politics or something making jokes as usual like nothing happened, just remember who we're dealing with here

The way your're talking you make it seem like he has common sense

That is SOOOO Weak that they did not address it head on.
That bothers me more than putting him on leave.

Im ok w/ them putting him on leave, as they have to show some leadership & accountability to their audience. (Yes, the show will suck).

But to not talk about like we dont know its going on???

That is against the DNA of what that show is supposed to be about: for the people, by the people.

That is WEAK!!!

Barkley doesn't speak any tuths. He can't filter his mouth and spews out ignorant bull crap. Hardly any truth in there. He is there to be a clown and add shock value with it. That's it.

Barkley is my fav, but man needs to take some time to get his personal life straight. Like I said, I've given Chuck a pass in everything he has done in the past. The guy is a genuinley nice guy, I met him and talked to him as a kid at a golf course for 10 minutes, and he had no obligation, but he was nice enough to take time out and talk to me. However, what he did, while having a wife and kid, is pretty disgusting. Get your act together Chuck and can't wait to see you back on TNT

I actually feel bad for Charles. He has no one to blame but himself, but he made himself look like an idiot. It doesn't help that he was speeding just so he could "get some."

Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't Charles Barkley married to some woman named Maureen (name?)?

Yeah I also met Chuck when I was younger and then, he was a good person. Hope he gets his stuff together and comeback soon. He's hilarious and makes TNT the best network.
