SenorGato, you have consistently mis-represented the arguments of EVERYONE you're arguing against by arguing complete non-points. who flaming cares if strip clubs are ok or not. not one person, since you posted, has argued that going to a strip club is bad. not. bloody. one. we HAVE argued that going the night before a meeting with the commissioner about your future in the league due in part to an incident at a strip club is irrefutably moronic.

    so now you're going to post something stupid about how you already explained how going to strip clubs is ok, which will yet agin have nothing to do with any part of this argument. then you'll say something about how we're judging him and we're on "high horses". do you have any bloody clue what you're actually talking about, or did you decide this would be your social issue of the day, no matter how stupid or beside the point your "arguments" are?
    Dude, what I'm saying is that it's not an issue.

    Thats not so complicated is it?

    It barely even registers as a stupid action in my mind.

        As long as he didn't do anything illegal, there should be no problem. The man likes naked women dancing, who doesn't? It really wasn't a good decision to go there right before his meeting, but should it matter what he does during his own time, as long as it is legal?

        ^Thanks to Eaglez.Fan for the sweet sig!

          Would you wear this to court if you were on trial for prostituting women?

          If I had an outfit like that I'd wear it everywhere I went.

            As long as it isn't at his house and it is in a state where it is legal to watch, no I have no problem with it. Is it stupid? Of course, just like Pacman; but is it newsworthy? Hell no it isn't.

              I would argue that most of what we are fed through the media is not newsworthy. However, we as a society determine what is. It's newsworthy because it sparks conversation and debate across the country such as what we have here in this thread. It's newsworthy because if ESPN didn't report it, then they would lose viewers to those that did.

                It would be like Ricky Williams meeting with Goodell for re-instatement, and before that blazing up and showing up with eyes glazed and smelling like weed.

                  Yeah, even something as innocent as showing up in a Bob Marley T-shirt would be a dumb move on his part. Not because there is anything wrong with it at all, but because of the negative impression it would likely leave on the most important man in his profession.

                      The person who said it would be equivalent to Williams showing up stoned is an absolute ******* moron. That is illegal and against the rules to the NFL. There is absolutely no comparison.

                      Your analogy on the other hand is dead on. Both of them are completely innocent, and it is ridiculous that this conversation is even happening. He did nothing wrong, going to a strip club does not hurt the NFL's image. Listening to Bob Marley does not hurt the NFL's image. Nothing was done wrong, and the fact that anyone actually gives a damn that he went to a strip club is pathetic.

                        While I stipulate that his decision to go the night before the meeting was a poor one, I must once again bring back my Joey Porter situation again. I mean he had the incident at a casino, so does that mean he must stay away from them so as to not draw the inferno of Goodell? Roger is in unchartered territory with these suspensions and he seems to be striking while the iron is hot. But one must note that the Players Association is backing Jones' appeal and if you read the substance of the appeal it does have merit. Goodell is making Jones the whipping boy of his conduct policy and I feel that will come back to haunt him. Face it the NFL has had its share of hooligans long before Pacman and will continue to have them long after he's gone. Lawrence Taylor and Michael Irvin, Hall of Famers by the way, were cocaine abusers and yet never received the type of suspension Jones got, is this the message you want to send one of that being around bad situations is worse then actual crimes? Pacman has not been formally charged in his instances and yet he's suspended but the defensive linemen, whose name eludes me at this time, was actually convicted of 2 DUI's and yet only merits a 4 game suspension? Something tells me that Jones will be suiting up for the Titans in this upcoming season at some point.
                        Thank you. I can't stand Goodell already. I'm distrustful by default, simply because of the way he's been trying to flex his muscles with the entire league.

                        And Moses, I really don't know what that ad for Pacman's birthday had to do with anything.

                          You've got to admit that it's understandable that Goodell and the NFL would have a problem with this. In turn, fans of Pacman and the Titans might have a problem with it because they want to see him succeed, and they recognize the ramifications of this. I agree that anybody who has a problem with the man exercising his rights is pathetic. But we've got to keep things in perspective here. That really isn't the issue. It's a a conflict between an employer and employee. The reason it's blown up to such a large scale is because it's the NFL. It's just sad that all these people on the outside looking in can immediately ascertain the ramifications of Jones' innocent venture, while he himself couldn't. It would appear that he either doesn't care, or that he just doesn't get it. Like I said earlier, I'm not necessarily an advocate of the NFL's player-conduct policies. So don't get me wrong. I'm just pointing out how easy it is to recognize when a burner is hot, and that it's not safe to touch it when it is. It's just the way it is. Jones should know that by now. Goodell does not appear to be the type of guy that begs to be played with. Which is why it seems so incredibly idiotic that Pacman would. Especially considering what's at stake.

                            In reference to the fact that Pacman is balling?



                            Plus, there is so much about that advertisement that makes me laugh.
