Ouch. I approve of suspensions for players in this case. Hope he can turn that part of his life around, though.

I'm not crazy about Meriweather playing for us either. I know, nobody's a saint, but still...

Don't fret, Vincent Jackson is his adviser and he's on the same plan in route to a 55 million dollar contract.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

It would be a small investment for teams to hire a driver, shuttle bus, or taxi service. Dumb athletes with $ and cars still haven't figured out to let a friend have the pleasure of driving a (insert $100K car) and keep the streets safe and your butt out of trouble. Drunk driving by millionaires should be held to full penalty of Goodell.

He blew a .24, basically a quarter of his blood was alcohol. He must have some shitty friends/family to let him drive away in that condition.

No that means 0.24% of his blood was alcohol. BAC calculates from the basis of 1% (so a BAC of 1 would mean that by volume 1% of the fluid in your bloodstream was alcohol).

Pretty bad way to start off a career, and Florida isn't the greatest place to reform a party lifestyle.

I believe the NFL has that type of service already. Which makes it that much worse.

Especially when you're in Jacksonville, which is probably the dullest NFL city in Florida to be in.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Blackmon was dumb & this was a bad way to start. However, he's about 20 years old and just got millions of dollars. We ALL KNOW they're going to parties. Maturity is something that comes with time and allows for mistakes along the way. I'd wait to see if this was a repetitive behavior before busting his chops.

An example of repetitive behavior = smoking pot after getting caught -- again and again...

I don't know to what lengths you'd go to define repetitive, but this is his second DUI in less than two years, and this one is aggravated on top of that (aka his BAC had to meet a pretty high qualifier). Coincidence? Maybe. But he's certainly laying the foundation for the "repetitive" part of your argument. If this one doesn't qualify as repetitive surely the next one will.
