Are you suggesting it would be better if I had someone else's standards? Or perhaps no standards at all? Why would having my own standards sound ridiculous? Or is it ridiculous to shoot for higher standards than "the street?" How is that ridiculous? Where do you get off making that claim? Do you really need a walkthrough of "What Pacman did?" I imagine you can find a link to a forum thread here without a need to rehash this. So I suppose you are trying t o make a point base upon "convictions" and guilty pleas. There are a few if you want to limit reaction to his conduct only to times he was convicted or plead out. He was "guilty" of acting like an idiot, repeatedly. He was guilty of not being able to rise above his native ATL streets when he was given an opportunity to escape that life. Instead, he just seems to have wanted to be a rich street urchin, tossing money at strippers like those cool guys in ATL drug gangs. And it really boils down to that, doesn't it? Those who whine about "The Nashville market is so unforgiving" are in effect saying that it should be okay for an NFL player to celebrate the behavior and conduct of drug dealing murderous street gangs. Nashville isn't a ghetto, so we don't tolerate that. The Cowboys got a bargain, and they seem to be getting an Adam Jones who is finally saying the things that if he said a year ago would have kept him on the Titans. That is my whole grievance with the idiot. He could have stepped up last year, quit calling himself "Pacman" and actually spoken out against the lifestyle he was embracing. Indeed, the deal is done, but the idea that there is something wrong with Nashville because we don't tolerate the same behavior that the streets of Atlanta will is a bogus claim. Why would anyone defend that kind of conduct? Ever? Adam Jones was too proud, too arrogant to speak out against a pattern of behavior that he and his heroes engaged in and celebrated. We agree that if he were still a Titan, we would have a better team. The difference is you blame the front office for not being more indulgent of his hoodlum outbursts and emulation of BMF behavior. I blame the man for ever thinking that kind of behavior was cool in the first place.
