very possible. I dont know what his conditions were though. I know that after the Vegas incident he said he didnt think he had done anything to violate whatever his conditions were. Whether thats true or not, I dont know. For instance though, I have the conditions right now that I need to not be charged with any felonies or any violent or drug-related crimes for a period of time. But this would mean I could get a DUI or a public intoxication as well as some other things and not be in violation of my conditions. Id still be facing a new case, but I wouldnt be in violation of my current case and the charges would still be dropped.

Pac-Man got into a bar-fight his senior year at WVU, which resulted in him being suspended for a game. That was the biggest character concern in regards to him.

I would like to note that the suspensions that were handed down were given according to the OLD conduct policy, not the NEW conduct policy. According to the NEW policy, you can't protest the ruling--- you can only try to shorten it. With the OLD policy, you can try and get it thrown out in court after asking the assistance of the NFLPA.

This means that they aren't breaking any unsaid rules by going back and persecuting the players with new rules. The new policy is being established after these suspensions.

i think he should have cut both suspensions in half.

henry has been punished before, by both the team and the NFL

pacman just is in the wrong place too much, and i dont think it could be a coincidence, but he has got arrested alot.

As a Titans fan, this news is bitter sweet. We've lost our best defensive player who plays a position that we already have a need at. But, if it will help in the long run and help Pac to get his act together, then it can be beneficial. I'd rather lose Pac for a year(Hopefully just 10 weeks, if he can get reinstated), and then have a him for the next 3 years without incident.

I think its funny that if 99% of people in the working world did half of what Pac Man and Henry do they would more than likely be fired from their job...yet they are only suspended...so personally I don't really feel bad for either of them because they are lucky being good at sports >>> being any other profession in the world

Yes, it's called Conditional discharge. He may have been given Absolute discharge, which has no conditions.

great quote by Goodell...

"It is a privilege to represent the NFL, not a right,"

I can only hope that in coming seasons that matters like the stuff Jones and Henry get into are taken just as hard by Goodell

Thats assuming that your employer would find out, if your not a professional athlete any arrests aren't plastered all over the news.

i wonder that the fact they were WVA teammates will reflect anything on the school? and the fact they just signed Noel Divine couple weeks ago

Even if PacMan is terrible for the league, I absolutely hate this move. If only they could let him play and not pay him. God I love Pacman.

Innocent until proven guilty
Employment at Will Doctrine my friend. Innocence and proof of guilt make no difference when it comes to employment. Like I've said before, if this were a standard job like most Americans have he would have been unemployed after his first arrest, no matter what the courts decide at a later date.

I think this is great. Although Henry should have gotten the season suspension also. I think it would be great also if they mess up again, that then they are banned from the league. It will send a message that the NFL is about having class. This isn't the NBA where you can be a thug and play.

I really like the fact that this commissioner has taken it upon himself to say, I don't care what the courts have done or not done or whether you're guilty or innocent in court, you've brought bad light and bad pub to our lerague by your actions or by being in the wrong place at the wrong time and now you'll pay a price. Maybe this will get guys out of bars when fights break out rather than leaving us wonder if they or their posse was involved. I know for Henry and Pacman, it's time to grow up or go back to school and learn an occupation.
