I'm supposed to feel sorry for Matt Jones

Clearly he's an addict. He's an alcoholic or hooked on drugs or maybe both. Clearly something is wrong with Matt Jones, when all he has to do to avoid jail is to not drink, and he is in jail anyway because he drank.

But I don't feel bad for Matt Jones. There are too many people with too many problems for me to waste a shred of sympathy on a millionaire athlete who simply cannot stop pouring beer down his throat.

His attorney say Jones had a few beers during a round of golf, which is possible. It's also possible the dog ate your homework. Possible. But I doubt it.

And even if Jones is guilty of nothing more than drinking a few beers during a round of golf, he's an idiot. Who drinks beer during a round of golf if that beer can lead to prison?

Only an idiot does that. Or an addict. Matt Jones is definitely one of those nouns, and possibly both. And I feel sorry for him exactly none.

drinkin bizzles, I can't begin to list all the things that were wrong with your post.  But let me give it a try.

Congress didn't make drinking and driving illegal.

"everyone" doesn't drink enough beer to put them over the legal limit and then drive home. 

He WAS doing more than the average golfer.  Most golfers aren't drinking and driving.  And most golfers didn't slide out of a felony conviction by pleading a charge down to drug court and requesting a treatment-heavy sentence.

 Hey Doyel, am I supposed to feel sorry for you?  You are an addict.  You are addicted to proving how ignorant you are in every aspect.  You rant and cry and tear these athletes apart because you want the attention they get. Clearly he's an addict Hey moron, as of almost 40 years ago the American Medical Association admitted that addiction is a disease.  You want to hold him to a higher standard because he is an athlete well then you must think that because these guys are paid that they don't have any problems.  People seem to think these guys can't succomb to depression and addiction because they are rich.  Last time I checked, your tax bracket has nothing to do with your personal life.  If Matt Jones was your family member, you would feel sorry for him or atleast try and think like a human.  Matt Jones is the only one who suffers as a result of this.  He committed crimes against himself not anyone else.  Get off your little cardboard throne and join the real world where 1/4 of Americans have a diagnosable mental illness.  And as for the addiction, I wish Jones the best because you might take it lightly Doyel but some have seen far better men than you die from addiction.   To answer my question, should i feel sorry for you?  Hell no.  I feel sorry for whoever raised you.  By the way, why do you look all Coked out in our picture?  Judge Matt Jones when you live his life.  Itd be great to be a pro athlete but you think there isnt pressure.  Sorry, he isn't a perfect person like you.

Career over?  Got to think he is gone for at least a year since he decided on jail and not alcohol rehab.  If he is gone for the year, who would want an average receiver on his best day with his history and out of football for a season.  How about nobody.

 im not defending matt jones, and yes, only an idiot would touch alcohol knowing your being randomly tested for it.  just wanna point out that under the circumstances THAT DAY he wasnt doing anything more wrong than the average golfer.

 

But "THAT DAY" he was caught snorting Coke in a car was more wrong than the average person.

He is an idiot like Pacman Jones, like Tank Johnson, like so many other football players who KNOWINGLY broke the law. He broke the law, he goes to jail. There is no if ands or buts about it.

>>Stop being such a hypocrite and live your own damn lives!!!! GEEZZZZZ.

What's your definition of the word "hypocrite."

If anyone here, or Doyel, does drugs, gets arrested, is ordered to not have any drink or alcohol, then drinks some beers, then calls Matt Jones an idiot for doing the *exact same thing* then it's hypocritical.

If it's just the average joe schmoe watching some football player who makes way too much money throw his life away because he won't follow some pretty simple rules to keep him out of prison, that's not hypocristy, that's just people venting. We all know that if we were in that guy's position, we'd be better stewards of that money, and we'd probably play better, too (because we wouldn't be high all the time.)
