    He's done it again today. His quote from Fisher doesn't match the headline. This is two articles in 2 days. What a douchebag sorry asp journalist.

    "I don't see him coming back on the 19th," Fisher said. When or whether Jones could return "depends on the conclusion (of legal matters) and at what point we're able to finish the fact-gathering process."

    There is no quote that says the Titans are not "allowing" Pac to work out. He can't be in 2 places at once. Kuharsky fails to mention that he is scheduled to be in court on March 19th AND he can't work out anyway because of his shoulder.

    FYI - Writer's don't always write the headlines. Editors do.

    BTW: douchebag is a nice touch. :rolleyes:

    The biggest issue is that he has charges pending against him in GA, and he did not report that to the Titans, which he is supposed to do. Fisher (read the FO) is just stalling for time until they decide what to do, and I would suppose to see the outcome of the charges, before they take disciplinary action.

    See, this is the thing. When the team has a fine, contract changes or any small thing involving a player's status, they contact the agent and vice versa. So, in truth and technically, it was up to Pac's agent or lawyer to contact the team/league. Agents do not want players contacting or talking to the coach and GM when it comes to legal or contract issues. Didn't Pac fire his agent?:banned: :suspect:

    Good point, but isn't it better for us to not be informed just in case he is charged? Doesn't that mean he violates his contract in some way, which keeps us from paying him out if we cut him? I'm confused...

    We have to let Pac play, this is going to be a huge mistake if he doesn't! We're already trying to fill holes on the D side of the ball. Without Pac that hole becomes a lot bigger.

    The Titans don't have a contract with Pacman's agent. The Titans have a contract with Pacman. So if there is a breach of contract, Pacman Jones is the guilty party. It is his responsibility to inform the team, whether he does it himself or via his agent.

    This is true. Having known some of the writers, they too, get upset because the headline, many times does not match the story.
