Goodell to Pacman: Game Over, Cowboy by Matthew Dangerfox

While the owner of this posse may try to lower his hat and turn a blind eye, it seems someone from out of town has had enough of one outlaw. Looks like a night at the saloon turned into a quick-draw, resulting in this renegade’s forced vacation. Now we can only wonder, with Pacman gone, will things remain OK in this corral?

NFL suspends Pacman Jones indefinitely

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Not even the extra effort of the Dallas Cowboys could keep Adam “Pacman” Jones from getting into trouble again.

Marvez on Pacman Video: It was clear to Alex Marvez back in July that Pacman Jones hadn’t changed a bit. So why wasn’t it clear to the Cowboys? Watch video Without some significant off-field changes this time, the troubled cornerback may not get another chance to play in the NFL. Jones was suspended for at least four games Tuesday for again violating the league personal conduct policy.

“He knows that when he was reinstated over the summer, I didn’t feel that he had room for any further errors,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “What happened last week was significant enough for me to take action. There are no free passes. It’s up to him at this point.”

Goodell will determine the full length of the suspension after the Cowboys play Nov. 16 at Washington. The commissioner said a lifetime ban remained a possibility.

Only six weeks after being reinstated from a 17-month suspension and missing the entire 2007 season for the Tennessee Titans because of repeated legal troubles, Jones was involved in an alcohol-related scuffle Oct. 7 with one of his bodyguards at a private party in Dallas.



Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Bengals (or Cowboys) by kennythunder

The two bad boys have come to join the party… Will it be in the end zone, or in the alley? Hold on Cincinnati, the jungle brush is deep with a few ferocious tigers.

Cedric Benson to the Bengals…like he’d end up anywhere else
Certain things are just meant to go together: peanut butter and jelly, Kornheiser and Wilbon, vodka and tonic, vodka and cranberry, vodka and Red Bull, vodka and ice, vodka and a paper cup, vodka and rum (try it!).

Then there’s Cedric Benson and the Cincinnati Bengals. A match made in Leavenworth.

The Bengals, whose players have had a series of legal problems over the last few years, which does not include Chris Henry who is having a legal problem right now and will have another, separate incident in about five minutes, seem like an odd team to take a flier on Benson, who has had his own run-ins with the law.

Seems funny, too, that Bengals president Mike Brown came out with this statement when they released Chris Henry in April:

“Chris Henry has forfeited his opportunity to pursue a career with the Bengals. His conduct can no longer be tolerated.”

But another player’s misconduct?

Hey, when you need a running back…
