Do you think with this happening, will the Texans have renewed interest in Darius from Jacksonville if he is released on June 1?

so do you think he should be suspended from the NFL for a year or possibly banned? afterall, drug trafficing is a much more serious crime.

For running from the law and resisting arrest I would not be shocked if the NFL suspended him for awhile they take run ins with the law seriously. As soon as he pleads guilty or is convicted it will come down.

I wonder if the position change is having a negative affect on Coleman. I mean, we heard Capers tell us what Coleman "said", we heard what Aaron Glenn had to say about it, heck we even heard what Dunta Robinson had to say but we never received a word from Coleman.

Not that it is an excuse but doesn't it kind of make you wonder?

Default What A Farce

After a night out with the fellows he is driving home when all of a sudden there is this big chunk of concrete missing from the road. He hit this crater which put a 4 inch dent in his passenger rim and sent him careening off onto a tree. As he had been out with the fellows he probably had a few drinks which caused the Cop to pee his pants. " Hey fellows I got Marcus Coleman and he has been drinking and had a wreck. Man this might help my cowpies."

That was a joke but really the city has a problem with failed roadways compliments of Former Mayor Lee Browns ability to chanel funds for street repairs straight into his Africa/China trips. Had he not hit the chunk of missing concrete he would have made it home fine. Wrong place at the wrong time.

I dont think he should have the same punishment as Little. Little killed a person and got 1/2 a year suspension. Marcus just hit a tree. Lets just hope they give him a break, and he learns from this mistake.

I just don't see the Texans cutting Coleman.
A $500,000 fine would send a message to him. He needs help and the Texans need him in the backfield.

first of all the league really has no buisness getting involved in an off the field incident...they don't have any judical powers...this didn't happen on the field or during a game so they should stay out of it...if the texans as an oraganization do something that's different...personally i don't think he deserves to be cut...a fine of $500,000 is crazy to me...half a million for a something that isn't a felony...this ticket carries the same weight as a speeding ticket guys...how many of ya'll have gotten a speeding ticket...how many of ya'll have driven home after throwing back a couple just without something happening...bottom line i'm sure the texans will either suspend him for the opening game...or fine him around $50,000...anything more and i would be shocked...i do not agree with driving drunk...but i also realize that he hit a tree, spent the night in jail, will have to do community service for this, and has to face the embarrisment of nation hearing about it...not to mention get his car fixed...if anything else this whole event is punishment enough for him

I use the amount of $500,000 to set an example for Coleman as well as the other players that this type of behavior is not acceptable. It may be off the field but he is a high-profile person representing the Texans.

$500,000 is steep enough to hurt him and persuade others not to act like this

A $500,000 fine to a professional athlete is like a $100 fine to you and me; it sucks, but we can deal with it.

There should be tougher penalties on athletes who make dumb mistakes like this. Any ideas?

in the laws eyes this ticket is no different than a speeding ticket...and there should be tougher penelties because he's an athlete? give me a break guys that's wrong...to say just because you make money playing a game the rules should be different for you...that's bs...that's the samething as saying the rules should be different because of your race, creed, or nationality...i'll let mcnair decide the the amount of the fine...but honestly people just because he makes more money playing a game doesn't mean he should get any special privilages or punishments
