    "That surprised me," Upshaw said. "But there was a feeling in the room that the same guy can't be in the wrong place at the wrong time three or four times."



    Sound like theyre getting serious about this

    The part that was even wierder to me was, out of the top players that showed up, LEndale White was there, makes you wonder what hes been doin this offseason

    But regardless of White, it seems theyre watching PacMan and theyre not happy

    They won't. It's an off-field issue. The team can suspend him if they choose (they won't either). Basically it's up to the law. Worse thing he's in for is assault, and this is the NFL. Assault charges are as common as right hands.

    Eh. I think you really have to take it case by case. If you have two strikes, and people know a third will put you out of the league, you've got even more problems, cause the lunatic is gonna make sure it happens. Big money ensures it. Lunacy ensures it. You gotta go case by case.

    I too was suprised Lendale was there. You'd think a Titan would be there to represent, but Lendale is an odd choice. Maybe representing rookies. Not sure.

    By the way, this could be called the pacman rule.

    you also have to take into consideration what would constitute a strike.

    is being a witness a strike? obviously since the league already fined pacman for just having his named mentioned. what about a parking ticket? it's illegal, but is it worth a strike?

    does the league wait until the hearing/trial before they give the player a strike, or do they just give it to him, only to to find out six months later he was not involved(like they have done with fines)

    Players are employees.

    Even Fortune 500 executives get tossed overboard when they give their company bad press.

    Thugs give the whole sport bad press.

    Yes, they do and I am not disagreeing with you. Just pointing out that...Fortune 500 executives get paid buy outs and Pac would be looking for over 5 million since I have been told his contract is guaranteed.

    like the local paper said today, if you're gonna cut him now is the time since they have lots of money to cover his guaranteed money
