Argos, don't sign Pacman.....

…oh I know he looks all flashy and can play corner like nobody’s business once he’s strapped it on and all, but this isn’t no Ricky Williams scenario…Ricky was all like mellow and into yoga and was soft-spoken and actually did all right by me…but this ex-Titan for a year is a completely different sort…EIGHT run-ins with the law…EIGHT…and we’re not talking petty jaywalking either, holy moley the last one involved a triple-shooting and a dude paralyzed for life…so I beseech thee o braintrust of the blue and blue, don’t bend the rules and find a way to get this NFLer into your camp…just say NO to Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones…

I agree. The CFL,i think is a great league,and the CFL has no room for criminals out of the NFL, or any other league. These guys need to shape up and realize they are not going to get a free ride to the CFL.

The CFL will now honour all suspensions that NFL has imposed on their players. So no Pacman which is good.

.........got to agree with RedW.....we don't need this guy in our league....It's unfortunate that a football player with his talent decides to throw it all away....like Earl says the CFL will honour all nfl suspensions...we have to shut the door on this type of bad-boy :thdn:

Agreed Red,

Maybe we can get him a part in the Longest yard Part Three....He can play himself!

And if he gets out of line on the set, we can always get The Great Khali (if he reprises his role in version 2) to karate chop him on the head. :roll: :lol:

No more fellons.

Legal troubles

As of March 2007, Jones has been arrested five times and questioned by police ten times since he was drafted by the Titans in 2005. Many NFL commentators are quick to point out that Jones has more arrests than interceptions since being in the NFL.

2005

On July 13, 2005 Jones was arrested on charges of assault and felony vandalism stemming from a nightclub altercation.

On September 5, 2005 Jones was a guest at the annual Nashville Sports Council Kickoff Luncheon. After a loud verbal tantrum when he was told to wait in line for his vehicle later that evening, Jones was counseled by the police. He also refused to pay for any valet services used that evening.

In October 2005, in a petition filed by the State of West Virginia, it was alleged that Jones had not made regular and sufficient contact with his probation officer and that he did not report his July arrest in Nashville in a timely fashion. The court ordered the probation extended for a period of 90 days, although the state requested it to be extended one year.

2006

On August 25, 2006, Jones was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication after claiming that a woman stole his wallet. She claimed that she did not steal anything and Jones spat on her. Police officers said they ordered Jones to leave several times, but he refused, continuing to shout profanities at the woman. A judge granted him six months probation on the conditions that he stays out of further trouble and away from the nightclub.[3]

On October 26, 2006. Jones was cited for misdemeanor assault for allegedly spitting in the face of a female student from Tennessee State University during a private party at Club Mystic, a Nashville nightclub. He was suspended by the Titans for one game and was scheduled to be booked on the charge on November 17, 2006.

Also, on November 12, 2006. Jones was arrested for sucker-punching Latino fans after the Tennessee Titans game in Oakland.

2007

During the 2007 NBA All-Star Game weekend in Las Vegas (Feb. 16-18, 2007), Jones is alleged to have been involved in an altercation with an exotic dancer at a local strip club. According to the club's co-owner, Jones approached the stage with a garbage bag filled with approximately $81,000[4] in one-dollar bills. Jones proceeded to throw the money into the air over the exotic dancers for a dramatic effect, an act known as "making it rain" or performing a "rain dance". Becoming enraged when one of the dancers began taking the money without his permission, Jones grabbed her by her hair and slammed her head on the stage. A security guard intervened and scuffled with members of Jones' entourage of half a dozen people, during which time Jones allegedly bit the guard on the lower leg. Jones then allegedly threatened the guard's life.[5]

After the patrons of the club exited, the club owner says a person in Jones' entourage returned with a gun and fired into a crowd, hitting three people, including the security guard involved in the earlier skirmish. Although the guard was shot twice, one of the people hit, former professional wrestler Tommy Urbanski, was paralyzed from the waist down.[6] Jones maintains that he did not know the shooter, although the club's owner insists that Jones did.[7] On March 26, 2007 the Las Vegas Police recommended to the city's district attorney that Jones be charged with one count of felony coercion and also a misdemeanor count of battery and a misdemeanor count of threat to life. [8].Pacman is rumored to be returning to West Virginia to earn his degree during his suspension.

More trouble followed Jones after the altercation, when drug dealer Darryl Moore reported to the police after being busted during a deal about his phone conversations with Jones. "We gotta slow down, man. We gotta get him focused on football, man. He's focused on too much other shit," Moore is alleged to have said. Wiretapped phone conversations between Moore and his friends revealed Moore talking about how Jones bet on college games to earn quick money. "You know, I was talkin' to him the other day about smokin', and he was like 'man, if I didn't smoke I couldn't take all the stress that I'm dealing with right now,'" Moore said.[9]

Jones also is set to appear in a Fayetteville, Georgia court in 2007 for his February 2006 incident on subpoenas for felony and misdemeanor obstruction of justice charges for an incident outside a home. The charges of marijuana in the same state were dismissed.[10] Jones has not been connected to the Moore drug arrests or convicted for the Vegas stripper incident. But Titans management have said they will talk to Jones about his future with the Titans, and that there is always a possibility of letting him go. The NFL has issued an investigation into the situation, which is looking into setting up stricter penalties for off-field conduct.[11]

Jones met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on April 3rd to discuss his future and the future of fellow-former West Virginia Mountaineer and Cincinnati Bengals' receiver Chris Henry. On April 10, 2007 the NFL announced that Jones would be suspended for the entire 2007 season, a suspension not assessed a player in 44 years since Paul Hornung and Alex Karras were each suspended for one season for gambling. This suspension also stated that Jones will not receive pay during this suspension and that it is subject to additional review after the tenth regular season game, pending disposition of pending charges. In anticipation, Nick Harper was signed as an unrestricted free agent. What effect the suspension will have on the salary cap is not yet known, although the Titans could seek repayment of the approximately $1.9 million in signing bonus money due Jones in 2007. The suspension carries no guarantee of reinstatement after it has been completed.

All I can say is wow. What a waste of talent.

No team has room to sign that guy under the salary cap anyway....

I might be wrong also...

of Course they're not going to sign him.. THERE ARE NO DAMN LOOP HOLES!!!!!

Suspended? Can't play PERIOD! no excuses..

there is no way around it!

why are we even talkin about this?

theres been no indication that any cfl team is attempting to sign him.

...from what I can gather there are three things we talk about:

Things that have happened,
Things that are currently happening,
Things that the future may or may not hold.

...are you suggesting we abolish the third?....

...and for those that say this possibility could never happen, how then did a convicted drug user banned for a year from the NFL get to play here last year, even though there were rules in place theoretically stopping this from happening?....

discussions about things in the future are usually based on some article or news concerning the CFL ( except beerbarons expansion to anywhere threads )...this doesnt.

its as relevant as saying:

stamps, dont sign curtis joseph....

since im 100% sure neither will happen.

...gawd, I hope we don't sign Curtis Joseph, we'd blow the SMS cap instantly......

...besides, there are like a dozen threads on this forum that don't belong here, and since every time I try to move one some faction or another screams murder I'm content to do nothing about it....

i love it when u move them.

...you anarchist you...

...one day I think I'll move all the Main CFL stuff to Off-topic and vice versa....then phone various ER wards around the country and see what's up....

...anyways, back to the non-topic, I don't think the Stamps should be looking to sign Michael Schumacher either...we could maybe get him and keep our cap intact but I have absolutely no idea what purpose it would serve...a bad signing IMO....

...in order that justice is served, Mr. Pacman respectively submits his version of the allegations....
