Default Pac-Man Prepared To Sue NFL

reported by Clayton on NFL Live--also heard on Mike&Mike this AM

-said he only expects Tank Johnson to get 4-6 games
-Pac's lawyers will sue if this happens
-said both incidents (pac and tanks) happened before the new policy-tanks been clean since, but pac has had minor incidents
-sclereth and clayton said pac would have a good case as he hasnt been convicted and some have only been allegations, and tank was in jain on a federal weapons charged
-schlereth went on to say, if he does suspend tank 4-6 games, its opening pandora's box
-schlereth also said goodell set the bar high, w/ pac, and he should have the same standards for everyone (was talking about vick)
-said if 16 games is good enough for pac, its good enough for tank and vick

some interesting points; i kinda figured pac would sue if tank got less; has a chance at winning since he has no convictions (major ones--like tank)

discuss

I support Pac-Man in this issue. A year was a bit much. Tank should be getting a year if anyone.

He has absolutely no chance.

And for the Tank argument, that makes no sense to me. Tank has had two felonies, Pac-Man has a laundry list. It shouldn't matter either way if he served jail time because that's not the issue. This is action against players that are a public embaressment to the league and no player is so much so than Mr.Jones.

pac has had incidents, not convictions (unless you count speeding tickets); schlereth and clayton thinks he has a good chance to win; cuz if tank is suspended less, it becomes a matter of goodells personal beliefs/morals

theres probably a lawyer on here, to give us his take

By the time the suit gets through the court system, Pacman will probably be reinstated. At that point, he'll be fighting to get the lost money back. It's pointless to try to use the federal court system as leverage in a suspension appeal.

6-8 months until it gets a preliminary hearing to even go into legal discovery. Discovery is another 6 months or so before they even set a trial date. Before it even gets there, the NFL could get a motion of summary judgement to kill this case before it starts. I really think Pacman is just threatening the lawsuit to use as leverage in the appeal.

Which he has none. Absolutely none.

Let's get another thing clear. "Pac-Man" isn't doing anything. He probably can't even spell appeal. These are just attorneys blowing wind and doing what attorneys do. If they didn't appeal they would be peripheral and would recieve no money. Pac-Man is signing off on this because he's run by handlers, like most professional athletes.

I agree that Tank Johnson should be suspended for the year as well, but it won't happen. Pacman would have a legit case if this were to happen though. Two felonies means you're nothing less than a thug. Unfortunately, the NFL is full of thugs.

Tank should get a year... on NFL live they were expecting him to get 4 games, saying they happened under a different code of conduct, and that he already got suspended for 1 game by the team. Well, Chris Henry is in the same boat, except he got suspended 3 games by the team, and he still got 8 games. The NBA and NFL commisoners are so full of ****, its not even funny.

Packman should be grateful he still has the chance to play in the NFL he has made a ton of bad choices and been involved in numerous cases while tank has only been involved in one (that I know of). In Vegas Packman reportedly told the guard I'm going to kill you and a couple minutes later he was shot and paralyzed for life by someone in pack's group. Packman should just serve his sentence and get over it he got what he deserved. Packman is lucky he is even allowed to play anymore.

The NFL needs to rid of these thugs. They need extensive background checks, and should not allow any repeat offenders or felons to play in the league. To play in the NFL is a privelege, not a right. Kids look up to NFL players. Thugs like Tank Johnson, Chris Henry, Pacman Jones, and Mike Vick are a disgrace!
