If you have listened to ESPN for at least 2 minutes this week you probably heard about Pacmans "altercation" with his own bodyguard. It happened like this, Pacman, idiotically gets drunk, he gets in an argument with his bodyguard in the bathroom of his hotel room. The fight started out small, but according to Jones it escelated and it was much worse than originally reported. Not only did Pacman beat up a NFL Personell, but he also ruined a hotel room and has yet to pay for it.
In the real world, he would be charged with abuse and destruction of property, instead, he gets another break from the law and goes unscathed.
Why does this happen? When is it enough? When will he stop?
I can answer all of these questions. Why does this happen? Because he is a blubbering drunk with no self control and needs rehab help, even a prison sentence to straighten him out.
When is it enough? It was enough a long time ago. 12 arrests or deals with the police in 3 years has to be enough. 1 is too much, twelve should get you years in jail.
When will he stop? Probably never, like I said, he is a drunk with no self control, and until he controls himself he will continue to do idiotic things.
But of course, Roger Goodell backs down from his strict discipline policy when it comes to dealing with Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones is mentally unstable, we all know that, Goodell needs to grow a set and stand up to a policy that he said would straighten out this league. Yet, the guy who has been arrested 12 time is allowed back into the game even after he physically abused a NFL employee....oh yes...the bodyguard is a NFL employee. So what if Pacman beat up a Ref? It's the same thing, he physically abused a NFL employee and should be suspended for doing so.
From player reactions it looks as though everyone is sick of Pacman. During his apology to his teammates during practice, many of them rolled their eyes when he said it wouldnt happen again. I know, you know, and his teammates know that he is a ticking time bomb and it is inevitable that he will do something stupid again.
And you know who backed up Pacman Jones? One of the other ex-cons on the Cowboys, Tank Johnson. Kind of shows you how dumb you have to be to believe in Pacman...you have to be another guy who has been in quite a bit of trouble with the law.
Pacmans benefits dont outweight his draw backs. He is a bad corner. He blows coverage, he isnt as quick, and makes some very bad mental mistakes. He isnt a ball hawk, he doesnt hit that hard, and he is weak against the run...so why is Jerry Jones sticking with him? I have no idea. Even Kurt Warner said for all the talk about Pacman he was very unimpressed with his film, Pacman just isnt that good.
And as for the Cowboys, they dont need this. They dont have good leadership on the team as it is. If the one guy backing up Pacman is Tank Johnson you got some problems. Their supposed "leader" was seen crying on the sidelines after a loss, and has been complaining that he doesnt get the ball enough. Tony Romo is too soft and under spoken, so it comes down to Jason Witten, the only real leader on the team. And I know for a fact he can't control Tank, TO, Pacman, and the rest of the "thugs" on Dallas...this is a team in dire straights.
