Are you kidding?!?!
Chris Henry has been arrested multiple times for the same types of offenses.
How many times do you have to touch a hot stove before you realize that you shouldn't touch it anymore?

Re: Pacman suspendened for entire 2007 season!

to play devils advocate( i really think Jones deserves his punishment) what grounds does the NFL have for the suspension? there were no policies in place when all the thuggery had taken place

Anyone have any idea of the parameters of this new discipline policy? I.E. 2 arrests = a suspension...
Pacman directly violated a rule in the personal conduct code for players. He kept secret an arrest for over a season.

Re: Pacman suspendened for entire 2007 season!

if the union lets it go, this gives the NFL a precedent for future suspensions, deeming whenever and where ever they seem fit. they almost have to appeal, then look like crap in the public eye

Re: Pacman suspendened for entire 2007 season!

I think the justification is, "conduct detrimental to the NFL."

I'm not sure i buy this. i would think that the NFL would have access to any legal records as an employer. but then again, the confidentiality laws are very strict

There absolutely were. The personal conduct code has been around.

And to play devil's advocate with your point. Does there really need to be a policy that specifically tells players not to get arrested half a dozen times, or bite a police officer? Most people would lose their jobs for doing stuff like that for just getting arrested for it. Much less convicted.

is there a clear definition of this? it seems like that has a wide range in meaning. with all these posts, let me say again that i think Jones got what he deserved

Re: Pacman suspendened for entire 2007 season!

I think the worst defense for Pacman that I've heard so far actually came from Michael Smith on ESPN, and I usually agree with him.
He said something along the lines of, "if you suspend Jones for the whole season he's more likely to get into even more trouble because he'll have so much free time on his hands."
That could be the most ass-backwards thinking I've ever heard.

Yep, the league HAS to set an example! You break the rules you pay the price.

The union/pacman,henry will have there chance to appeal, and look like a bunch of clowns.

I'm not arguing the personal conduct code. my argument is that there have been a ton of football players in the past that have been arrested, and suffered little or no punishment. why now?

I know what you mean. It does sound subjective. However, I'm willing to bet that there is a definition of it in the CBA.
