I couldn't be happier (unless the suspended him for more) of the result. I am sick of professional athletes not being punished for their idiotic behavior. I hope this either sets a standard for appropriate behavior or the next guy to get in trouble gets a more severe punishment. The best part is the fact that he doesn't get his pay. I also hope that in the future the different leagues fine players equitably the exorbitant amounts the players earn. Make it hurt!
Were the Panthers a more talented team then the Patriots in 2003?
Yes I am. It sends a strong message to the NFL, especially the Cincinnati Jailcats a/k/a Bengals. One of the arguments is that Jones was not CONVICTED of any crime. But when you have more arrests than career interceptions, thats a problem. The NFL players have to understand that this is not only a game, but a business. As Goddell said, it is a privlege to play in the NFL. Roughly 1800 men get to play football for a living, but its some out of those 1800 who have no respect for themselves or the game. If you or I get 10 arrests, then we're in the unemployment line. One year is going easy on him. "Pacman" presents a bad image for the Tennessee Titans, the NFL, and for African-American men. Stiff penalties such as this will cause players and GMs to think twice. Players will think twice before indulging in the "superstar" lifestyle of heavy drinking, firearm carrying, drug usage, strip club hopping, and promiscuity. GM's will think twice about acquiring guys via draft or free agency who have these red flags in the character issue. Character and decency outweigh talent and winning. Why set your franchise back 3-5 years just for the chance of winning now. Just ask the Seattle Seahawks about Koren Robinson. They're still paying the price for that screw-up, as they have no first round pick this year because they used it to trade for his replacement, Deion Branch.
Who likes the denver broncos?
all famous people get off easy compared to us..why not give him like 7 games and say if he messes up again , then it would be 2yrs. also no convictions!
Miami Dolphins Future?
yes. players never learn until they lose their job or paychecks. make an example out of him.
What team is the biggest threat to The Patriot's Superbowl hopes next season?
yea, now he needs to go to jail
Moss to the Pats is gigantic, but how will Darrell Jackson to the 49ers help the 49ers and hurt the Seahawks?
yes, the dude stepped over the line multiple times and I'm glad the league is finally bothering to show the players that they mean business now...
If a basketball player were to play footbal hat position woul dhe most likely play?
I think the entire AFC South (except for the tinheads of course) are breathing a sigh of relief knowing that Tennessee is in even more controversy.
Where will Pozluszny get drafted?
I am VERY happy. These people are acting like idiots. I think a good 3-strike rule is: After the third 'incident' of any sort that brings negative attention to the sport and/or a team, then they should be banned from football. That's right. Make these idiots realize how good they have it, and make them GO FIND A REAL JOB and learn from what they've lost.
How many people here are...?
About time a commissioner stands up for something other than the owners making money hand over foot.
What the heck are the eagles thinking picking a quarterback in the 2nd round??
I'm not sure the word "happy" is the right word. the NFL has a real problem with these thugs doing what they think they can do. There should be no room for idiots like Jones in the league...
Looks like Joey Porter is back in trouble with the law again. What is this Ahole's problem?
He got what he deserved. anyone that thinks otherwise is a Titans homer. He's been in trouble more times than you can count on both hands, in only 2 years of being in the NFL.
Ricky Williams and Onterrio Smith both got suspended for their continued bad behavior and violations...Pacman Jones is no different and shouldn't get a free ride because of who he is.
Good job NFL!
Will terrell owens be pro bowler this year & why?
They shouldn't have suspended him that long. That would just backfire because now since he doesn't have anything to do and has too much money and spare time, he will go out and do the same things, maybe worse. What a lack of foresight by the NFL.
In NCAA 07 what number is Colt McCoy (Texas Quarterback)?
