    ahem, i have said EVERY time he has gotten in trouble, if he was found guilty he should pay the price.

    im pretty sure that's how our legal system works.

    Maybe it would make some people happy if the NFL put a shock collar with GPS on Pac so he can't leave his yard...:clown:

    It is how our legal system works, but as his suspension points out, Pac isn't living in the legal world, he's living in the NFL. The NFL has the right to support its image however it wants, and if he wants to continue the privilege of playing in their league, he should tailor his activities. Do you honestly think that Adam Jones has no obligation to alter his activities at this point? He may have every right to go certain places, but that doesn't mean that he should. His "conduct" is under review after week 10, because of that alone, he should be VERY careful.

    Money root of Pacman's problems

    Pacman Jones did not talk to the local media for the majority of last football season.

    Not on the record, at least.

    Chances are, however, there was not a member of the area press corps who spent any amount of time in the Tennessee Titans' locker room and did not hear something along the lines of, "I have eight million dollars in the bank. What do I need to talk to you for?"

    It has nothing to do with liking him or not. I like him. I think we're doomed without him. But I'm tired of making excuses for his stupid behavior. It's honestly like he has some sort of mental disorder that keeps him from understanding the most simple forms of logic.
    If you're a magnet for trouble, and as innocent as you claim to be - maybe, just maybe you should chill with the night-life just for a little while. Plus, if your career is in jeopardy, maybe doing what your boss requested is also a smart move.
    But as I've always said, the one thing Pac is more guilty of than anything else, is being an effin' moron.

    We should not forget that wrong place, wrong time, could eventually become a real legal crime. Now you may think that is crazy. Not even possible. But it is. Even now, if you fail to act on someone commiting a crime you could be charged with something. I don't know what. And god help the person charged, but the legal system can charge you with a crime for just being there. The legal system is there to provide for human decency. Nothing more. And it adapts to the culture in which it exists. What you are seeing with the NFL and the three strikes policy is a less tolerant society. The legal system is also becoming less tolerant. Things are changing in the United States. Innocent until proven guilty will always exist, but what is easy to forget, is that the definition of what someone can be guilty of changes. You can even be guilty of doing nothing.
