    Gets practically nothing? We don't know what he will get. This is just an estimate.

    Well if the estimate is even within 6 games of being accurate, it's practically nothing.

    i don't understand the argument that since Tank served jail time he deserves a lower suspension...

    He deserves a year..

    That's enough to get at least what pac got. And i agree with those who don't think a jail sentence should take away from his suspension time. No way.

    Tank johnson is exactly what the league insists they want to get rid of.

    Within 6 games of being accurate? The estimate is 2-8 games, so on the high side, if he got a 14 game suspension, it would be "practically nothing?" On the lower side, add 6 games, and 8 games is practically nothing? Maybe you meant that the high side, 8 games, is practically nothing. It's right on par with Henry's suspension, and it's half a season, I call that something.

    No, it's not what Pac got, but Pac didn't report his arrests, which is a HUGE thing that no one seems to factor in.

    Jail time should ADD to your suspension, unless you are later cleared of all charges (it happens). But if you are convicted and serve time, that's WORSE than being charged with a crime that hasn't been proven.

    4 games. 4 games is what the previous posts said. 10 games would be practically nothing for someone with actual criminal charges while another player got a year for simply not reporting an incident.

    I can't help myself from agreeing with all of that. I was recently questioned by police because the place I work I got robbed. Does that mean I've had one "run in" with the law now?

    4 games is what Ryanstitans made up as his prediction for the suspension, feel free to criticize that prediction as freely as you want to, but there's nothing behind it but Ryan's opinion. The thread is about espn.coms estimate of between 2 and 8 games.

    10 games isn't practically nothing, it's actually exactly the length of pacman's suspension, the difference being that Pacman's can be extended depending on the outcome of the cases against him. 10 games is more than Henry got, who had 4 arrests in one offseason. And it wasn't an "incident" that Pac didn't report, it was an arrest. That's specifically in his contract and NFL rules, and even if he didn't know it, his agent and lawyer DEFINTELY would have let him know. It's not like either of them didn't know about it.

    Pacman's suspension is 16 games, not 10. It's pretty clear that the only thing that happens after the 10th week is a meeting where they extend it even further or keep it the same.
    Yeah, I was hoping that 10th week thing meant something as well, but it doesn't.
