Indeed, this latest development doesn't help his case for a new contract at all, Goodell is sure to come down hard on him for this one.

Indeed. And here I thought he had some leverage in his negotiations with the Chargers. Let's just say he has less of it now.

You'd think the logic of your argument would seem pretty obvious to most people. Guys like Jackson however see it this way:

Money--->Party--->Drink--->Drunk--->Money--->Sense of entitlement--->No Problems

While in reality, it goes down like this:

Money--->Party--->Drink--->Drunk--->Money--->Sense of entitlement--->DUI--->Big problems--->Loss of money

It could possibly take away form his asking price.... Maybe able to get him for a lot cheaper now.

That'll make any team looking to sign him very happy I'm sure.

Hmmmm.... I wonder what Mr. Snyder thinks now.

He may want him even more knowing that he could possibly get Jackson for a reasonable price.

The sad thing is with most pro athletes, money throws logic out the window.

Exactly.

DUI = 4 game suspension
Running someone over while drunk = 1 year suspension
Not much difference you still collect the paycheck.

Snyder could think of Jackson's contract as a layaway purchase.

Dan Snyder will still go after him. Any way we can fire an owner?

July 1, 2010  08:38 AM ET

Not one but two DUI"S??? How dumb is this guy.

July 1, 2010  08:41 AM ET

Soution: Get a new contract, buy a strip club and live at the club. No driving needed. Thank me later Vince - maybe my own table at the club (I like brunettes).

July 1, 2010  08:41 AM ET

Not one but two DUI's??? What's next hit and run then vehicular manslaughter?? Sentence ...Thirty days in jail.

July 1, 2010  08:54 AM ET
