why do you contnue to pay the "big bucks" for criminals to be so
called "roll models" for our children....I will not allow any "jaguar games or any Jaguar items (shirts, logo's ect)in my auto's, in my home, or around family, based on the history of the players that are suppose to represent our town.
But i guess, the owner of the jag's
is more into the $$$'s. I guess if you play ball well , then you are letting our young people think that all they need is a sponsor to get a way with breaking the law.
I feel that if a person that breaks the law should be kicked off the team and lose all the big $$$ that they could have made by playing ball...

Who cares.
All of these cases are rather insignificant, but I'm not surprised to see the locals try to make them seem more than what they are.

So, just so we're consistent here.......

Everyone who has any charges like these should lose their jobs, right?

Or are you just applying this to NFL players, which makes no sense.

ex-jagfan ideed........

What a nonsensical, naive attitude.

Every team, and nearly every organization period will have an employee have some issue with the law at some juncture.

And this team has often delt with these guys rather harshly. See TJ Slaughter. RJ Soward.

Bad things happen. Sometimes to bad people, sometimes to good people.

T otake their livelihood is a punishment outside the judicial system that in the big scheme of things, makes no sense.

And regardless of what the team does, to chastise them is laughable. Shame on them for signing a guy to the practice squad who has never been in trouble. Shame on them for giving a local kid a chance.

Please.

We have some amazingly sanctimoneous fans, who could get knocked off their high horse pretty quick.

Well, I gues you have never done anything stupid in your life time, and evrybody that makes money isn't perfffect buddy, and I don't think that you are neither. Most NFL players are aggressive people, thats why they are good at what they do. But their behavior has nothing to do with their choices that they make in life. Rather what the amount of the DOLLAR they make. And everything is not what it seems, TV is called TV for a reason, and they get paid to make things look good and bad for a nice price. So get real, you are just one less fan.

I'm glad that some of you are realistic. Make everything worse is that he isnt how they make him sound. He's just in a bad position right now that with the fact shown it will prove that the gun was in the car. Oh yeah NEWS FLASH if you are driving a car and a weapon is found under your seat it is automatically yours(even if it isnt). So... if you are driving someone's car and they have a gun under the seat then you will get arrested. The law will sort everything out after you get arrested. Stop trying to assasinate his character!

Most people with charges like these probably would loose their jobs but you guys are right maybe he just made a stupid mistake but if he ends up in more trouble after this then he should delt with accordingly by the coach.
