Just seems like all of a sudden a new commissioner is trying to make a name for himself when nobody gives a shit about him. I'd rather see Pacman on sportscenter running for a 90 yard touchdown.....that's just me though. I understand everyone else's opinion and can't argue for a guy like Pacman too hard. Just hate the Uncle Sam approach of the NFL lately.



With all this ungrateful piece of trash has done off the football field, your saying left up to you he would still be making the highlight reel regardless of his actions......?!
Im really glad you have nothing to do with the nfl. And a 'uncle sam approach'?. again Im dumbfounded. what does that mean, really?

Re: Pacman suspended for entire 2007 season!

This is the Article from Redskins.com while most of you probably read it, few actually paid attention to what it said. THE ADVISORY BOARD WAS APPOINTED BY NFLPA AND TROY VINCENT IS PRESIDENT OF NFLPA, AND SITS ON THE DAMN ADVISORY COUNSEL. So the NFLPA is on the same side as Goodell. The counsel supported this decision.


Thrash is part of the new NFL Player Advisory Council to advise NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on issues affecting players.

The six-member council also includes former Redskins safety Troy Vincent, who is currently president of the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). The others include safety Donovin Darius of the Jaguars, fullback Tony Richardson of the Vikings, center Jeff Saturday of the Colts and linebacker Takeo Spikes of the Eagles.


James Thrash
The council was appointed by the NFLPA.

He is just an idiot on so many levels. He makes T.O. seem like a saint.
I agree.

The NFL would seem like a much safer place if the media would stop villifing everything T.O. does. Owens doesn't engage in criminal behavior, and he's a hard worker. He's a bit overrated as a player, and he's an idiot that handles situations in the worst possible way, but I'm guessing that there's a lot of guys across the league who do that. The difference is everything T.O. does is now a really important occurence, and he ends up getting villified for saying stupid things things when there are people in the league like Pac Man and Henry and Tank Johnson who are actually doing stupid things.

I think the perception of the fans are getting these lines blurred nowadays. Terrell Owens isn't a criminal. Randy Moss isn't a criminal. But because of the mass media coverage on them, the league develops a bad rep when guys like Chris Henry and Pac Man Jones actually do stuff wrong.

Yes. I would leave him on the field. If he commited a crime and was convicted then the legal system may keep him off the field. What if you were charged with a crime and before you were convicted your employer fired you? Fair?

The reason I say found guilty and not if they are arrested, is because most of these guys are being tried in the media instead of a court room. How can anyone be suspended for a year on accusations of being involved in a crime? The focus should be on preventative or deterent policies that are preached and enforced from the mountain top to the valley low.
The fact this idiot has been questioned by police 10 to 15 times regarding incidents involving him. drugs, beating up people (on more than 1 occasion) shooting incident, 1 or 2 times could be concidered in the wrong place at the wrong time, but 10 to 15 times, there is a behavior problem there. you can not excuse 10 to 15 questionings as being tried by the media

IF these two clowns care about the NFL and playing football this wont be an issue. They need to understand that the people they surround them selves with are a HUGE contributing factor. If they dont realize that then they will continue to get into trouble. Mike Tyson dug his own grave, another idiot that had the world in his hand, and got too big for himself. If Pacman and Henry are not smart enough to stay out of trouble, then they dont deserve to play. I can't believe people make excuses for this crap. They have to put themselves in position to get into trouble. its not like the clubs,drugs,guns,thugs, just appear out of thin air. They go there, they put themselves in these positions. Its like people keep saying he's a product of his environment, BS!!! they used their talents to get away from that crap. Trouble doesn't seek people out, people seek out ways to stretch luck with getting into trouble or not, these fools just dont know how to stop or when to stop.

Upshaw and Co. should stay away from this one.
Dude. Who do you work for? I think any team should be able to terminate a player's contract based on the severity of his off-the-field play. Terminating a contract in addition to say, a 8-game suspension, gives the player a fair opportunity to continue his career if another club is interested in taking that risk. A year long suspension just puts a player's livelihood in limbo for too long.
