    Goodell is letting Pacman practice and play with Dallas...until September 1st. When a final decision will be made by Roger.

    He'll be back this season. Jerrah didn't make that deal without checking in with Roger first, so as long as Pacman keeps his nose clean, all's well that ends well in Cowboyland.

    I agree, but it'd be funny as hell if Goodell denied his reinstatement right before the season started. Make him bust his butt for a couple months then yank the carpet out from under him.

    Pacman's an asshat!

    What has TO done recently? Nothing but good football.

    The facts are that since the Texans have been a franchise and with all their 'were the good guys' 'we take people off our draft board' attitude, the Texans have had more people run afoul of the law than the Cowboys have. It's a sad fact and its not indictment of the Texans because they have been pretty clean too. An incident here and there, but nothing big. So the old 'Cowboys are criminals' rhetoric is really just that, rhetoric. So are the Texans criminals too?

    Hey, believe me. the Pokes picking up Pacman is a recipe for disaster but playing for a better franchise with more involved alumni may actually help him. What is there to do in TN besides drink, get high, and give $1 bills to skanks?

    I know you are just having fun TB, but if Jerrah's moves pay off, they are going to have an elite talent level...well outside of Roy Williams who is scrubtastic and hasn't met a coverage he couldn't blow.

    True but he does not have a new contract and he is in the final year of his current one, sounds like a receipe for disastor to me.

    I am having a little fun, BUT once an asshat, always an asshat. The gurls have two, now. BTW, I don't get into the criminal cowboy stuff that much anymore. Those days are pretty much behind them. Besides, it's going to take a colossal event for someone to dethrone the Bungles in that regard.


    Go to Vegas and be party to someone being paralyzed.

    I believe he was reported to have been resigned last night. Jerrah rewards the players that play well for him. Always has. This is just an example of Jerrah taking advantage of the cap free year and giving TO a 3 year extension (edit: WWJD has it reported as a 4year..maybe a team or player option). Our owner needs to make sure he throws around some money before the cap free year or he is going to ahve to grossly overpay or we are going to have a mass exodus of FAs.

    I hear ya, bro. PacMan has damaged and has been damaged by the company he keeps. He is running around with a bunch of losers who feel its more important to keep it street than it is to be a real man with humility, wisdom, true strength, and the real respect of those around them, young and old. His $$ enables them to be deadbeats and thugs and they probably try to run up on other guy's women and/or stripper hos. If PacMan hasn't cut ties with his old crew, he will fail miserably.

    I am not one to slam hedonism and act like I am holier than thou...i like sex, drugs, and rock and roll....but there has to be some substance and positivity too or you are just a waste. Could you imagine all the good you could do if you had all that money? Could you imagine all the people's lives that you could positively effect? You will get a much stronger high from helping build a football field or baseball field for a bunch of kids than you could ever dream of getting from a bottle, joint, or mound of illicit narcotics.

    If your social life merely consists of strip clubs, rolling with criminals, loads of bling, entitlement attitude, and violent tendencies....you are probably a huge douche bag that needs help.

    The Cowboys are probably the perfect situation for him because its nothing new to them from their past players, they have a support system that has experience in troubled players, and Jerrah is basically a 'show me' type of guy. The past is the past and all that matters is what he does from this point forward to Jerrah.

    I don't want to sound like I give a rats ass, but the move has already paid off in a way. IIRC, They traded a 4th round pick for the asshat which was redeemed this past draft by trading back. I think they even get a 4th rounder next year as well.

    So, the only thing they've lost is whatever kind of respectability they had left. The guy's a piece of shit....end of story.

    oh yeah, Jerrah has sold his football soul to the football devil on this one. pre-Vegas shootout, I wouldn't have had a big problem with Pac being even a Texan. After the shooting and a security professional being paralyzed, PacMan lost me on principle. That is a really bad thing to do and to not be forthright and open and transparent after that happened, indicts him as a dirtbag. He was already in trouble and for him to pull a stunt like that....his crew is made up of a bunch of immoral and shallow scumbags and its no surprise when someone in your entourage shoots up a strip club.

    Owens Embraces Troubled Teamate 'Pacman'
    Jokes That Alzheimers Might Help 'Pacman' Jones 'Forget About' Strip Clubs
    BY JON WIENER and DAVID BLAUSTEIN
    June 3, 2008

    RSS Terrell Owens has an idea for keeping his new teammate Adam "Pacman" Jones out of trouble.

    Owens, who is being recognized this summer as an Alzheimer's Association Champion for his work for the foundation, says Jones - who was suspended from the NFL after a series of arrests, including one stemming from a shootout at a Las Vegas strip club - should join him in his charity work.

    Owens, who has experienced his own share of controversy in his career before coming to Dallas in a 2006 trade, believes "Pacman" will succeed in Dallas once NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lifts his nearly two-year suspension.

    http://www.abcnews.go.com/Sports/story?id=4983091&page=1

    Pacman Jones took part in his first practice with the Dallas Cowboys today, intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown

    Also, if not mistaken TO's new contract is for 4-Year, $34 million dollars.

    4 round the clock babysitters to keep him out of trouble.

    No, I think it's absolutely necessary. And sad.

    There is a potential upside. If Pacman has a great season, then it'll be another feather in the Cap of Stupid Decisions that the slug Dud Adams wears under that animal carcass on his dome.

    Anything that makes Dud look bad is a good thing, even if it benefits the Cowboys.

    Deion doesn't want us to call him 'Pacman' anymore

    Lots of things to laugh at in this article, but my favorite might be the bolded part.
