Its kinda hard to tell if someone is being sarcastic on a computer. Its sometimes hard to comprehend your incoherent rambling.

Being charged with a crime does not mean that he's committed one! That's the point. The NFL has no right to punish someone simply for an accusation, whether the accusation was made by a policeman or anyone else... If he pleads guilty or is convicted of a crime, then the NFL has cause to consider punishment.

By the way, I don't think I need Marcus Coleman to set an example for me on how and when to operate heavy machinery.

First offense seeing that he refused the breath test will suspend his license for 180 days after his ALR hearing. If he had provided a breath specimen his license would have been suspended for 90. His case mainly will be based on his ALR hearing which determines whether or not the state has credible evidence to pursue his license suspension (the video taped sobriety test is key in this hearing). 90% of people who win the ALR hearing get the charges dropped. He will also have to get an occupational drivers license (if his license is suspended) which will only allow him basically to drive certain routes to and from work. He will also be ordered to drive between certain hours per day...usually from 7 am to 9pm.

At this rate, they might need to start having AA sessions at the NFL players union meetings.

some of ya'll, i.e. CaptainPatriot, seem to want to deal out the punishment yourselves...even against your own player in ty law...which i find funny seeing how many years he's devoted himself to the new england patriots...not everything is as black and white as ya'll might like to believe...and remember he has only been charged with this misdemeanor i remind you...this isn't a felony...i know everyone has their own issues with me saying this but it's the law...it's only a misdemeanor...same as any traffic violations...and keep in mind this one the state does take more seriously...but speeding, not stopping at signals, and wreckless driving all kill people as well...so don't try and read too much into a DWI...people can blow a .09 and be given a DWI and that's a hundreth of a point above the legal limit...and with some people that's only 2 or 3 drinks...i know i'm a bartender...i see people leave my bar all the time get in their cars and leave...and i garentee you none of them should be driving...you want punishment to be so damn harsh because he's a player...that the nfl should get involved along with the texans...man i hope if you ever get pulled over for a misdemeanor your boss puts some extra punishment onto that so you know how it feels...i know let's get a camera crew out there too and show your picture all over the 6 o'clock news to everybody...the way this issue has been treated is silly...blown way out of purportion in my eyes...cause we hold our athletes to a higher standard...although good it does have it's bad points as well...remember you are a fan and should support your players and coaches with everything they do...not just through the good times

This will be dealt with by the NFL and the Texans and it will be dealt to Marcus himself. You have no authority to dish out any punishment so put a sock in it. We have the best front office in the NFL and they will deal whats fair. I will accept what they say and I will respect the innocent untill proven guilty rule. Every thing that is said about punishment is premature at this point. Patience is what will decide Marcus' and the teams fate.
I am sure Marcus will respect the "if you do the crime, then do the time" rule.

Isn't it ironic that Coleman was a featured part of the local evening news the day before he was arrested? He was giving a motivation speech to a school somewhere. He was talking to the kids about how he has just started a real estate business to supplement his life after football.

I am a season ticket holder and have been excited about the Texan secondary since the draft, but I will support the organization 100% behind any disciplinary action they take against Coleman, including releasing him. However, before any action is taken against him, he must be found guilty. As of now he is innocent until proven guilty.

I would NOT support the release him, that is a little too harsh. Roman Walker had a DWI last year, and all Capers did to him was give him a talk.

I dont think they are going to release him.

Like I stated, I will support the organization's decision. What I think doesn't matter. It is not my team.

I do not want him to be released. I simply stated that I will support whatever the Texan organization decides to do. And I also strongly believe that no matter what decision they make, the defense that Coach Capers puts on the field will be sound.

I did not know about the finding of him passed out behind the wheel on US 59 in his past. Sounds like Marcus may still have a problem.

I don't like what happen, but the bail was set at a relatively low amount which would indicate may be this isn't a real big deal. May be he had a mechanical problem which of course resulted in him being tested. At least he's not a wife beater or any think like that. It was probably stupid on his part and hopefully he has learned a valueable lesson. In Fresno after the election a gentleman who had just been elected wound up having too much at his victory celebration and wound up with a DUI charge. Embarrassing, yes, but hopefully that's it. Its a personal mater which he will have to take care of and it happens to a lot of people. That doesn't make it right, but thank god no one was hurt or injured. The car can be replaced.
