He's still Pacman (and always will be)

Posted on: October 14, 2008 3:55 pm
 

He's Pacman again.

Adam Jones was supposed to be a changed man, a player who stayed out of trouble and dedicated himself to the game of football and playing Pro Bowl-caliber corner for the Dallas Cowboys.
We should have known better.

Pacman will always be Pacman.

He talked the talk when he wanted back into the league, promising NFL commissioner Roger Goodell he would stay out of trouble. Adam, he said, would be good.

Too bad Pacman overruled him.  Goodell had no choice but to suspend him indefinitely for his latest violation of the league's personal-conduct policy. He told him one incident and he would be in trouble.

What Jones did a week ago would go unreported if it were someone else. Getting into a scuffle with your bodyguard is nothing, but it's just another incident in a pattern of bad judgment.

Pacman. He's the player who was suspended for the 2007 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy for multiple violations of the NFL's conduct policy, so it's a big deal. He has no room for error.

Yet here he is causing trouble. The biggest crime Jones has committed is being guilty of stupidity.

It's like in the old movie North Dallas Forty, which was about the wild Cowboys of the 1960s. In that movie, Mac Davis asked Nick Nolte to get in a pile. Nolte tells him no, that it's the same old pile.

Davis laughs and said he's going to get knee deep in it.

Jones is the same way. He can't avoid the pile.

Now he's knee deep in it. Only this time it's a pile of something not-so-nice smelling, if you know what I mean.

Pacman will be Pacman till he learns two simle words.PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.Till he understands that nothing is going to change.

I was looking to see how many different tmes he had an incident involving law enforcement.The magic # was 14.thats right 14 incidents where law enforcement had to keep the peace.

You can use the excuse,,oh he is a young black American just getting the wrong end of the deal,being held down by the man..Don`t get me wrong,that type of thing does happen often.That seems to be the excuse his fans are using.Oh their just picking on poor pac man.

Maybe it was just a case of mistaken identity those 14 times,but with each  incident the odds of that being the case grows smaller and smaller.

We now hear he has entered alcohol re-hab.Of course not by choice,but in a last ditch effort to save his falling like Micheal Vick career.Being put in a facility like that against your will is going to do nothing for pac-man.

Jerry Jones gave him what should be his last chance at redemption,and he got egg thrown in his face.

I am always one two believe any man is worth a second or maybe even third chacne,but a 14th or 15th chance.Its time  for the NFL. to cut bait.

Pac-Man it was good knowing ya.

Pacman will now have some dirt pour people to mold into high quality friends willing to deal with his state of mind.  Unfortunately I noticed on the news all the resideents of his mind left. Now he is recruiting from the Rehab clinic. Good Frikkin Luck PACMAN, every one deserves a second chance, even if the second chance is a second chance.

Pac Man proved to be true to his name of Pac Man by gobbling up tons of press about his off the field life style.  You would think a guy who was suspended for a year by the commisioner , had hired bodyguards (to keep him out of trouble) and picked up by the Cowboys would have found sanctuary on the field and in the fact some of us were trying to give him the benefit of doubt.  But I guess  beforeI refused to belief the record, however I do belief it now and the fact it's saying "PAC'S MAN DAYS IN THE NO FUN LEAGUE "NFL" are over!"

miamivice82,

to my limited knowledge, and it is limited, Jones has never been convicted either. He's simply been charged or around someone who was later charged. his charges have not lead to any convictions, yet he's been suspended for at least 20 games in the last 15 months. So how is Johnson any different? Is it simply because his name is Johnson or because Goodell has a vendetta out for Jones. Again, I'm not defending any of Jone's actions, simply making a valid point to the "standard" Goodell keeps citing but not equally enforcing.

As a Cowboy's fan, I didn't want to see them sign Adam Jones.  Now with new occurance, I hope he doesn't get the opportunity to play in the NFL again.  Why reward players for stupidity?  Take a look at Cris Carter.  After leaving an alcohol induced Philly, he turned his life and career around in Minnesota.  To bad Jones couldn't do the same in Dallas.  It's time to pull the plug on Pacman.

As a Cowboys fan, I didn't want to see them sign Adam Jones.   Given his past occurances, he doesn't deserve another chance.  Why reward players for stupidity?  Take a look at Cris Carter.  This guy battled alcoholism, and turned his life around in Minnesota, after leaving Philly.  To bad Pacman couldn't follow Carter's lead.   Sorry Pacman, Game Over.

Man I'm glad the Titans got rid of this fool.  Maybe he and his bodyguard were just thinking ahead and gettin the drama started for his upcoming wrestling match.  That or he could take his multiple ball catching trick on Letterman's "stupid human tricks."  He'd probably get in a fight on set though.
