Pacman's Last Stand and Pick Results

Adam "Pacman" Jones was recently reinstated into the NFL after his most recent incident involving the police. Now, reports are saying that if there is another incident Pacman will receive a lifetime ban from the NFL.

I would say it is about time Goodell laid down the law. If you were running a company would you ever hire someone who had been arrested 7 times in 2 years? Would you hire someone who, though talented, was fired by his previous employer? I wouldn't. Clearly Pacman has issues, but he still doesn't realize playing in the NFL is a privilege not a right given to talented athletes. Hopefully he will finally get the point, stop being a jerk, and try to become a respectable member of society.

I will start posting on Monday's my picks results from the weekend:
Last week: 6-8 and I laid a huge egg with Denver as a lock. The Broncos did not only not cover, but they lost badly to a bad team. Unfortunately they will still get a 1st round home playoff game. When will the NFL just adopt the English Premier League way of standings and scheduling? There is 1 division and each team plays every other team. My God, it is actually a fair way of doing things and you might actually get the 12 best teams into the playoffs every year. It's Amazing.

I agree that Pacman is a knucklehead and that there should be limits to the number of chances given to a person who seemingly has no respect for himself or others. But this last incident was between Pacman and Cowboys security that was hired to keep an eye on him. No one was arrested and there were no charges filed. That sounds like an internal matter for the Cowboys to me. If Jerry Jones wants to cut him, that's his perogative. It doesn't sound like a league matter.

The secuity guard (who was doing everything possible to keep packman from making a scene to save his job) happened to be the closest person to drunk Packman Jones. With Packman history, he probably would have picked a fight with someone else, be it a hotel employee or another hotel guest. To me, that would have involved police and then it becomes an image problem which is a league issue.

Maybe he should move to Alaska and run for public office...

I don't think Packman has the international experience that is needed to govern Alaska. I mean, you can't even see Russia from Dallas.
