    Yesterday on NFL Live, I was surprised to hear Mark Schlereth say that he felt Jones would get a reduction. He went on to say that if it goes as far as Jones sueing the NFL (if the suspension isn't reduced) that he would probably win there. His basic rationale is that Jones should be treated under the old policy. I was actually sort of surprised to hear him say this.

    John Clayton pretty much said that Jones had no chance.

    We will see...

    Everybody should read this appeal. It lists other player transgressions that were not addressed by the commissioner. It really makes a strong case that Pac was unfairly punished and highlights the fact that Goodell "made an example" of him- something Goodell stated he would not do.

    Yeah- it is a STRONG argument for Pac. I'm hopeful it gets reduced to 6 games.
