    Have we seen the last of Pacman?

    June 19, 2007 1:01 PM

    Some of us grew up hearing that nothing good happens after 4 a.m. at Atlanta strip clubs, but we could all use a friendly reminder from time to time.

    I know many of you frequent strip clubs because it's hard to beat a good buffet. And some of my colleagues have also pointed to the open and honest communication that takes place when you're politely slipping dollar bills into a complete stranger's g-string.

    So why can't Pacman Jones simply stop and smell the carving station? Technically, he may have broken his self-imposed midnight curfew, but we all deal with insomnia in different ways.

    At least one New York columnist says it's time for Commissioner Roger Goodell to give Pacman the permanent boot. The only thing that bothered me in Steve Serby's column was a reference to a speeding ticket Jones received for going 79 mph in a 55 zone.

    I'm giving Pacman the benefit of the doubt on that one since Blockbuster now reserves a copy of the fascinating Texas Defensive Driving series for my unlimited use.

    The truth is that most of us have developed Pacman fatigue. Even a lot of Titans fans I talk to via email just wish he'd go away.

    At this point, I would say there's a 70 percent chance we never see the man in uniform again. At least a football uniform.

    In other news, I've been asked to speak on a forum panel at Uptown Bar and Grill, and will be out for a couple of hours.

    Personally I hope Pacman can get his act together so that he can return but that is up to Pacman only he can control his actions however if he continues down the same path then he only has himself to blame

    Goodell: Too soon to say if Pacman violated suspension

    ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Still awaiting the facts on the latest incident in which Adam "Pacman" Jones is alleged to have been involved, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said here Tuesday that it is too soon to say if the Tennessee Titans cornerback violated the terms of his suspension.


    Jones is being sought for questioning by DeKalb County, Ga., police following an alleged verbal altercation inside an Atlanta-area strip club early Monday morning. The altercation allegedly led to a shooting a few blocks away from the club.


    Police have said that Jones was not involved in the shooting, but may have knowledge of people who were. Jones has not been charged in the incident and a spokesperson for the DeKalb County police said the former first-round pick is not a suspect.


    "I would prefer to wait until I know everything that went on before I comment specifically on the incident," said Goodell, who is attending the NFL player health and safety conference dealing with concussions. "So I don't know if 'disappointed' is a fair term to describe how I feel. When I met with Pacman last week, he told me he was taking steps to change things in his life, and he seemed sincere about it. I hope that's the case. But I don't have the facts yet."


    The league is, however, investigating the latest incident, in an effort to ascertain Jones' role, if any.


    One of the changes Jones told Goodell he intended to make was to stay out of clubs and to avoid situations in which he might be compromised. Goodell has said that he has apprised Jones that he will ultimately be judged by his actions, not his words.


    "Yes, he did say that he was going to stay away from those places that might be a problem, or places where there could be trouble," Goodell acknowledged.


    The incident in DeKalb County occurred only six days after Jones dropped his appeal of the one-year suspension imposed by Goodell in April.


    The suspension could be reduced to 10 games if Jones meets certain stipulations, one of which is that he have no further involvement with law enforcement officials. Jones is still the subject of separate investigations in incidents in Georgia and Las Vegas.

    He was involved in the first altercation- the fight over a woman, apparently. Something like that. ANy way you look at it he was NOT behaving himself.

    If nothing else he broke his own promised self-imposed curfew.

    Chris Henry is the person I suspect who would end up in a prison outfit before Pacman Jones... If Pacman is kicked from the team, I still think in a few years' time he will try out for another team and make it if he keeps his nose clean so to speak and stays fit. I think Pacman is smart enough to know this league gives him the best opportunity to succeed in life. Wishful thinking, but I still think it can happen.

    Chris Henry, IMHO, is too freaking stupid to see that. I don't care what happens to that guy; he is worse than Pacman IMO.
