    Maybe there has been enough talk of his past, his 'criminal' acts, his poor upbringing.

    Look at Hoffa, he is tired of hearing about it, maybe Pacman is tired of it being brought up continuously.

    well hopefully he has stopped hanging around gas stations at 2 in the morning or loaning his car to drug dealing ex-cons or ect...

    point is the only way that crap goes away is if he continues to behave like a responisble adult, which he seems to have done for a few monts now.

    Or maybe he just doesn't want his personal life put on blast. Ever think about that? Sure there's positive PR (and he's gotten that lately BTW), and then there's reporters doing these lil investigative reporting jobs on a man's come up. Me personally, I'm a private person, and would never want that sort of attention, at least that in-depth. I think Jones' general attitude is just to keep out of the limelight and to succeed this season, and IMO, is the absolute best choice he could make.

    regardless if it is private or not, he doesnt have to co-operate with it.
    I certainly wouldn't.

    What in the hell are you talking about? Did you read that article? It was a expose on his entire come up. How many other Titans have the pleasure of that being put on blast for a bunch of people to read? Bulluck? Nope. Chris Brown? Nope. So no, just because you sign a million dollar contract, doesn't mean you have to cooperate or necissarily like having your personal life spilled out for the world to see.

    you may not like it but it is going to happen esp when you act like an:moon2:

    Oh BTW, I had said I didn't read the article. He isn't the first person to live in that type of environment and he won't be the last. It is how you act after you leave it that is important.

    You've never read stories about Bulluck and his mother abandoning him as a child, or how he ended up with his foster family?

    About how Todd Williams ended up on the streets in high school before his church took him in and football saved him?

    You didn't see the story on Ahmard Hall and why his path to the NFL included a four-year stint in the Marines?

    Or how Terna Nande was separated from his mother and sister 16 years ago?

    How Jon Dorenbos' father murdered his mother when he was a kid, and how that started a chain of events that led to his career as a magician and NFL long snapper?

    How Jevon Kearse was affected by the crime and violence that touched his family multiple times, including several relatives killed by gun violence and an older brother who went to prison?

    Pacman Jones is not the only one who has details of his personal life/upbringing put out there for everyone to see. If he doesn't want to comment on it, that's totally cool. But he's not being singled out for that treatment.

    Oh no, all this huge intense Nashville media is bearing too much down on little Pacman, he's had the worst upbringing of anyone who ever lived...:whoop:
