Move them both out of the team! We have enough troubles without this imature and plain stupid behavior from team players that think they are above everyone else! I am disgusted with the whole deal. Over paid Thugs, thats what they are!

Darn...You know if I made the kind of money these men made I think I could abide by the law. Drinking and driving...bust him!! Dixie Joe you have it right on target...here will be the conversation: I am black...I was raised in a poor family...I didn't have the same opportunities others had...etc etc etc...all the while banking those big pay checks...There are TONS of blacks who were raised by poor mama's and sometimes daddies...and look where they are...NOT breaking the law!! Throw'em in jail...fire them Jags!!! Get some men in there that want to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars and follow the law and be good role models to these kids!!

That's right, the majority of players that get into trouble with the law are black. But whatever race they are, they must abide by laws and rules. Maybe three strikes, like 1st time is fines, 2nd time is fines and out for 3 games, 3rd time you're fired. Well depending upon the severity of the charges, if bad enough canned the first time.

Hey, they are football players. Laws do not apply. Haven't you been following the news?

And don't you feel bad for not buying season tickets to support the team?

the jags must be recruiting from prison now....isnt it about time that the weavers take this bunch of losers somewhere else..the city got raped on the deal bringing them here and has been raped ever since with how much money the city pays to keep them here..its obvious the vast majority of the city doesnt care..hence the black outs all the time...

Fire them and recruit some law abiding men who can act like adults. Did you see their bail....they probably had that in change in the seats of their Escalades..

"Gud offning, ossifer. I'm a jagyouare player. Do I get a discount?" Come on Weaver and DelRio. Give US a break. You're always grumbling about poor turnout by the fans and you don't seem to have any problem with blackouts like you used to. Yes, I remember when Mr. weaver bought blocks of tickets and gave them away just so that the game wouldn't be blacked out. But something has changed. The quality of the Jaguar players is hurting badly. I don't recall right off hand what the total number of players on the roster is, but 8 players in trouble with the law in a year seems to be a pretty high percentage. It hurts the team's image and worse, it hurts the citys image. We're doing more than enough on our own in that regard. We don't need a group of professional thugs, who are supposed to be people who are examples to our kids. These types of examples we can do without.

It would help if the locker room had some leadership. No one on the team steps up. Thugs supporting thugs
