Wow. Is thug culture finally on the run from Sheriff Goodell?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Hey LITP...


I sure hope so.

Though I gotta laugh at the length of the Newspaper article.

I, you, or anyone else would be hard-pressed to find "spin" in that article!

As long as he keeps handing out these types of punishments hopefully it will cut down on the amount of arrests. While I feel scumbags such as Pacman Jones and Chris Henry should have been booted out of the league for good, these punishments are better than what has been handed down in the past.

That's because it doesn't involve a Steeler player. It's only "spin" when a Steeler player opens his mouth or get's in some type of trouble. You didn't know that?

Hit 'em in the pocket and hit 'em hard - thats the recipe for success.

Like you say, those guys should be gone for good but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Goodell could have gained some decent publicity (if thats all he was after) by giving out lesser sentences becasue the leagues attitude to the situation has been pitiful up to now.

Not to mention the NFLPA's - their grievance to the NFL to have Pacman's punishment reduced is just another fine example.

I honestly thought the NFLPA would show some class in the Pacman Jones situation and let the league lay down the law. Apparently they have no problem with one of it's player's actions leading to a guy living in a wheelchair for the rest of his life (nevermind his other arrests). I wonder if that guy thinks Pacman's sentence should be reduced?

It's a joke.

Ok, Pac Man gets suspended for a whole season (which I agree with but I felt he should kicked out for good). Then Tank gets 8 games.....Which leads me to my point...How did Chris Henry only get 8 games?.....I think Henry at least should have been gone for a season but just like Pac Man been kicked out for life....

I understand why Tank got suspended.....But looking at the fact Henry only got 8 games then noway Tank should have gotten 8 games to.....
