yep.. if the story is indeed true then Pac doesn't really deserve to continue playing football.. but notice the if.

this sure isn't the first time Pac's name has come up after a shooting. I really doubt anyone can be that stupid.

If this is true Pacman might have upgraded his suspension to 1.5-2 years. Goodell is looking for step changes in Pacman and going to a stripclub really isn't the kind of changes The Commish wants to see.

Notice a pattern? Just like Vegas.. it isn't PacMan with the gun, its a member of his "entourage" that pulls the trigger.

PacMan is in another car and can say "I didn't pull the trigger" when you damn well know he was calling the shots.

And the place was one of the really skanky Strip Clubs in DeKalb County too...

These guys don't roll like that. this isn't the mafia man. I'm sure he may have an idea of who pulled the trigger in his entourage, but it doesn't happen like that. These entourage people think that the celebrity status of whomever it is they're rolling with extends to them & when someone like you or i doesn't give it to them....... crap like this happens.

I've seen it happen a dozen & 1 times in clubs & functions i used to frequent when i was younger. If he cares about playing in the NFL any, he needs to change the people he runs with.. period. that might help him change his ways a little faster if he's trying to change at all. If it were me, i'd just have to "sell out" & do what i needed to do to keep my career alive.

To quote the story:

"Burrows said witnesses at Club Blaze, a Moreland Avenue strip club, have told police Jones was at the club and that he and his entourage were involved in an argument at about 4:15 a.m. with a group of three men. The argument concerned a dancer at the club, police said.

After the argument, witnesses overheard Jones, a Clayton County native, said he was going to get a gun, police said.

He then left in a black Cadillac Escalade, witnesses told police.

But, when the men with whom they argued left the club in a Toyota Sequoia, Jones's entourage followed them in two vehicles police identified as a green Dodge Charger and a black Pontiac Grand Prix.

A few blocks away from the club near I-285, the victims told police the men in Jones' entourage pulled alongside their vehicle on Moreland Avenue and opened fire. The men returned fire, they told police. Their vehicle was struck seven times, but only one minor injury was reported. Another nearby vehicle was also struck and suffered damage to its windshield."

Sounds pretty "Mafia like" to me. Except the Mafia has better marksmanship.

If I were the Dekalb County Police, I'd like to see the activity on PacMan's cell phone after he left the club- outgoing and incoming calls.

The "I'm going to go get a gun" line just bought him another year off from the NFL.

But this is all academic. He is getting a year minimum in the Georgia Department of Corrections for the stuff he pulled in Fayette County with the Police Officer.

dude, whatever. the guy is a dirtbag wanna be gangsta. well he is getting his wish. this just speaks volumes about a male African American culture when following the law and not shooting people is labeled 'selling out'. that is just sad and pathetic. Ironically, 'Whitey' is happy about this mindset. It keeps people poor, keeps people unempowered, and keeps Black America at a disadvantage. This whole ghettofabulous mirage just plays right into 'Whiteys' plan.....too bad losers like PacMan are too stupid to realize this.

Bill Cosby was right when he said that the whole mindset needs to be changed. Scarface, 50 Cent, and Corleone should not be the role models of today's black youth. Back in the day, it used to be that you tried to get out of the ghetto and you would try and bring your family and friends out with you if you 'made it'. Now it seems that the trend is to bring the ghetto with you and mire yourself in it regardless of consequence or common sense.

PacMan is a moron. I will give him credit for sticking by his friends, but when your friends are wanna-be wankstas its time to get some new friends.

i hear ya man. one thing is for certain, it's not meant as an insult or jab. it's just an honest personal observation about what I feel is a significant problem within the black community and American culture in general.

i feel the same way that TRUE African-American heroes such as Bill Cosby, Quincy Jones, Colin Powell, and even the vilified Jesse Jackson feel. I will leave the pandering and rationalizations to the likes of Russell Simmons. Until education and a sense of self-worth hold more value than gunplay and street cred, there will continue to be PacMan-like stories in the news.

On a positive side, I think that the hiphop community is starting to take strides in the right direction. hopefully narcissistic artists like 50Cent or The Game start to move aside for more positive artists like Talib Kwali, Mos Def, and Kanye West. I am all for good club songs but writing songs about Bentleys, Bling, and Bitches just seems to be repetitive, self-destructive, and something that probably isn't in the best interests of the African-American community and at the end of the day, America.

yup. and then at the same time glorifying material possessions that are out of reach of 99.9999 percent of the population (Bentleys, Mansions, and Private Jets) only compounds the problem. People can't relate to lifes like that and eventually it will hopefully become played out and there will be more substance.

i do think that things are changing, albeit slowly. some of the vanguards of the hiphop community are starting to hold a mirror up to this injustice in order to show the hypocrisy within. Kanye, Nas, KRS-One, and Rakim have a track that pretty much should be the blueprint of future hiphop. 'Better than I ever been' i think is the name. Its a track about true respect, knowledge, achievement, and positivity....maybe one day that type of track will be hipper than some of the garbage that is peddled nowadays.

totally agree. i was just showing that there have been some positive signs coming out of the hiphop community that a sea change could be coming.

music is an important part of every community, but I would say that hiphop music has had as big an effect on it's community-at-large than any other music in modern times. why does the effect have to be 99% negative and counterproductive? why not pen music that could breed activism, education, and empowerment without being labeled wack, 'sell out', or lame?

as a musician, I just have strong opinions on hiphop's responsibility to its community. i am pretty much an indie rock connoisseur who is pretty much a music snob, but I try and keep up with whats going on in other genres and hiphop has made me sad for a long time...since the salad days of Tribe Called Quest, DeLaSoul, Rakim, and EPMD. sorry to have brought this into a PacMan thread. I just think in some way its all connected.

I'm listening to an Atlanta Sports Talk Radio Station at work...http://www.680thefan.com/ Their streaming audio has alot more information.

According to them the Dekalb County authorities have a APB out for PacMan because witness said he started the fight that led to the shooting.

Both his agent and lawyer don't know where he is, havent spoken to him since earlier this morning.

PacMan is probably sleeping off his party from last night... if the party ever stopped...

It's called EGO! A bodyguard won't kiss his a*s like a bunch of loser "buddies" will do. He loves the attention he gets from his pals, and knows he has them to cover his a*s when the s*it hits the fan. JMO!!

Naah... that sure wouldn't change anything.

If he is stupid enough to be involved, he really doen't deserve to be playing in the league at all.
I really doubt the commish will be put under pressure for suspending him indefinetley if he is provedn to be involved. You can't help but wonder how many fans would stand by him if he is involved. I for one would be fed up of this and really wouldn't be too depressed if he is suspended despite his talent.

The story of the incident:

http://www.ajc.com/news/content/metro/dekalb/stories/2007/06/18/0619pacman.html

"Darian T. Haygood, 34, of Decatur told police he went to the Moreland Avenue club to pick up his nephew and while inside asked a woman for a dance. :dance3: Jones allegedly confronted Haygood about the request, saying "Y'all don't know me. I'll kill all y'all in here," :bigboss: the police report said.

Haygood then told an off-duty Clayton County deputy of the run-in with Jones, the report said.

The officer, according to the report, told police he heard Jones say, "I'm going to the car to get my gun," :cowboy1: which prompted the officer to ask Jones and his security detail to leave.

Jones drove off in a black Cadillac Escalade. Another man known as "Slugga" drove away in a black Pontiac Grand Prix and a third man took off in a green Dodge Charger, the report said.

Haygood left in his Toyota Sequoya and was waiting at a red light on northbound Moreland Avenue preparing to get on eastbound I-285 when shots rang out. He ducked and returned fire with his Glock 23.40-caliber handgun, the report said. :cowboy1:

The Toyota was struck seven times with one minor injury to a passenger. Another nearby vehicle also was struck by bullets, causing damage to its windshield.

Haygood returned to the club, notified the off-duty officer, then called 911, :phone: the report said."
