  • Adam Jones: Will Appeal Suspension

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...e&type=fantasy

    Update: Jones plans to appeal his season-long NFL suspension and believes he's been made the "poster boy" by the league, the Tennessean reports.

    Recommendation: "For the most part, I think it was a little bit harsh. I expected the suspension, but for a whole year, for a guy that hasn't been charged with nothing. I really didn't agree with it," Jones said. "But for the most part I am taking it like a man. I am going to appeal it and we'll see what the future brings. ... Clearly, I am made to be the poster boy." Jones, who has had at least 10 run-ins with police since the Titans drafted him in 2005, can apply for reinstatement after 10 games if he follows conditions set by the league. We'll keep you posted.

    He has no chance to get an overturn. The only person who can reduce the suspension is Roger Goodell.

          I really think he has a chance
          Dunno why he was suspended in the first place
          Its not like he was ever convicted
          Or maybe he was suspended for making the nfl look bad, all I know is
          The Titans are i trouble

          Thats what I learned last nite on this site

          Corny I know but i wanted to do it

                I don't think he has much of a chance to play a game next year. I guess it's worth a shot though. Personally, I hope it doesn't work.

                  I was just wondering, if the Titans make the playoffs is that still part of the suspension? Or could he play?

                    He is suspended for 16 games so i would think


                    But the Titans wont make the playoffs so we wont have to worry bout that

                      They definately have a shot at making it IMO.

                        I think Goodell will come down on Jones hard. Goodell has already been to talk to the Bengals about the conduct of their players and Goodell want's to send out a message that this type of behaviour won't be tolerated by the NFL

                          Pacman has no chance... he should go to canada, play there for a year and come back. Goodell isn't gonna budge...

                          I kinda like Goodell... doesn't back down when he has to take a stand.

                            Not a good idea going to the CFL for a year he could blow out a knee the guy is to young and good (On the field) to risk that IMO.

                              Honestly I thought the whole season was too much, but then again maybe overkill was necessary in this case.

                              Jones' best bet to get the number of games reduced is to follow every single guideline the NFL sets out and then apply for reinstatement after game 10.
