Default The Cowboys have released Pacman Jones

Saw this at Rotoworld.

LOL, that didn't work out so well, did it? Now if Jerrah can also get up the gumption to cut T.O., they might actually start turning the tide of that poisonous locker room.

The Cowboys traded for Jones before the season even though he had been suspended for the 2007 season because of a series of off-field incidents.

He missed six games this season for violating the league's player conduct policy after an Oct. 7 scuffle with a team bodyguard at a Dallas hotel. He missed a seventh game with an injury.

Jones averaged just 4.6 yards per punt return and had no interceptions.

Please...don't even think of suggesting it.

Default Re: Pacman has left Texas

Heh. They didn't release him because they'd had enough. .. they released him because they had no choice. He's going to be banned from the NFL for life.

Pacman arranged to have three guys shot at shortly after he was suspended.

I'm not so sure about that. A ban for life certainly would have a tremendous impact on Pacman the professional football player. His performance on and off the field was less than inspiring. He was given a second chance, and IMO, did not or could not take advantage of it. I haven't read any comments to indicate anyone in the Cowboys fan base being surprised or sad regardless of what else may have come up about any off the field antics. However, it could serve as the perfect excuse.

Default Re: The Cowboys have released Pacman Jones

The guy's one year out of football made him lose that spark he had before. Myself and most Cowboy fans hated him going back for a punt because his average was horrible and other guys had better averages. He did decent in the secondary but was by no means a guy we had to have.

As far as the release....the guy was hurt, he was not playing well and not many teams willw ant him if any. With the money he has left and maybe no more NFL..............HIDE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN......strippers get ready at the "scrip club." All heck is about to break loose. I give it less than a month.

What an amazing turd. Leaving the NFL no poorer for his passing on Pacman heads off into the sunset to his life of incarceration.

He's too much trouble and not enough return.

I wonder if the Cowboys will now give the NFL permission to give Pacman his lifetime ban.

Isn't it more appropriate to say that Pacman is (possibly)giving the NFL permission for a lilfetime ban? I will remove the "possibly" when and/or if the reports prove to be valid.

I really feel bad for Pac. Product of bad upbringing, no true family, and a world that just adds to his confusion, through it's own ways of taking advantage of all people. I pray he stays out of trouble and restores the life that he has left. There is more to life than football, and he needs to address all these other aspects first and foremost.

Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Jonesí release came after the team became aware of allegations that Jones arranged for someone to shoot at three men outside an Atlanta strip club.
Almost every time this guy has gotten in trouble its been at a strip club. Fool me once, and all that business. Social upbringing can only screw you up so far. At some point, plain old stupidity kicks in

I agree....But his social upbringing seed has only fueled and added to his overall addiction. As most know, addiction comes in many forms. For some, Alcohol, drugs, eating, and let's face it, his is strip clubs/"social pornography" and the excitement that comes along with it. His deviate activities add to another main problem, anger and his not being able to control it. All addictions stem from another underlying issue, that needs to be addressed, but is often suppressed. His social upbringing is the main seed. If he can get back to that area of his life, accept his lack there of, and look at the blessings God has permitted, regardless of his past, he may be able to move on. He's not much different than the rest of us. He just acts out in a far more violent manner. I'm not justifying his allegedly placing "hits" out on people, but eventually that fruit, from the seed placed long ago, will rear it's ugly head. For him, it comes in fighting. For others, killing their wives, kids, family members ,and the company secretary with their words. Both slice at the heart of a person. The question is, which one is worst. The one that kills quick or or the one that kills slower? Both Kill.
