I am ADAM JONES - look forward to being in the CFL!

I’m excited about being in the Canadian Football League! I got lots of friends and family who play and have played in the CFL. I grew up watching the CFL, NFL, College Football back in Roscoe!

I have never been to Winnipeg but have done tons of research and know you guys are big football fans! and use to have the Winnipeg Jets and had some cool traditions!

I am Adam Jones not Pacman. I’m a family fan, about to marry, and have wonderfull daughter. I love football, and want to have the best time in the CFL.

If its 1 season, 5 seasons or I play there forever! I want to win a championship and love the look of the Grey Cup!

GO BLUE!

ya right… :roll:

NEXT!!

if this is really him… he’s gotta show me more than just this talk.

Look forward to seeing you play! Winnipeg is a great town with a long CFL tradition. Do it proud!

get real, it's not the Jones from the NFL.

first off, none of the sites like CFL.CA sportsnet.ca or Bluebombers.ca have confirmed anything... heck the Bombers site doesn't even have a story at all.. neither does the official CFL Site.

How do you know? Did you post that yourself?

Blue denies Pacman deal:

Not exactly:

"For the record, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have now officially denied reports that they have actually signed former NFL DB/KR Adam (Pacman) Jones to a CFL contract through their media rep.

While he may have not put pen to paper just yet, both Jones and Bombers director of player personnel John Murphy talked about it as if it was a done deal in interviews with SI.com.

Murphy said by e-mail later this morning that he made a mistake by talking about it to S.I. when the Bombers laughingly maintained that they do not discuss players on their neg list or not under contract to the team. Yet, rather amazingly, Murphy would still neither confirm nor deny that Jones is on his way to Winnipeg to play for the Bombers."

That story was from earlier today, which probably means it uses yesterday's facts.

...can this thing turn into any more of a circus?....seriously, this whole thing is embarrassing for the League and the Bombers in particular if this denial is now true...

And TSN is reporting, in a story posted at 7:07 p.m. that it is a done deal. It's also all over the States.

That denial was from yesterday from crying out loud.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4436703

then why hasn’t the CFL site or any other sites, besides TSN reported it to be a done deal?

Maybe the webmaster went home for the night. You think they update it 24/7?

Because nothing gets officially announced until a contract is registered with the CFL.

Probably because they are concerned that it will blow up in their face if he's turned back at the border.

Why would they turn him back at the border? Does he have a criminal record?

Whether this poster is him or not, he said on his ustream that he did sign.

Don't know what's on his record but as far as I'm concerned he's an "undesireable". Go watch these and draw your conclusions.

HOpe the Blue Bombers aren’t paying this guy big bucks just to be a DB? I mean I doubt he’ll sell many more tickets to warrant paying this guy so much. Ricky Williams sold very few tickets in Toronto. And turned out to be an offensive bust. I doubt this Pacman fellow will have much impact on or off the field. Because very few people buys tickets to watch a defensive player. And unless he makes 3 interceptions a game, he will hardly be noticed out there.

I don't get it. What has Pacman Jones done that's so terrible, so outrageous and heinous that he shouldn't even been allowed into the country? As far as I've heard, the big crime that everyone is holding against him has to do with moral issues: they say he spent a pile of money at a strip joint. Ooooh. So, which one of the saints on this board can plead innocent to that charge? If any male here of legal age and normal tendencies can honestly say they've never been inside a strip club and enjoyed it, all I've got to say is, dude, get a little spark in ya. Life is short, loosen up, have some fun.

You don't have a clue what your talking about.

On July 14, 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 in which 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, because he didn't have money at the time. 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.

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.[37] 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.

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 possession in the same state were dismissed.[38]

On May 7, 2007, Jones was stopped at 12:45 a.m. on Interstate 65 heading into downtown after an officer clocked him on radar at 79 mph (127 km/h) in a 55 mph (89 km/h) zone. Jones was driving his red 2004 Cadillac XLR Roadster which he won back at police auction last fall. According to a report in the Nashville City Paper, police had seized the Cadillac—a car with Jones' nickname "Pacman" stitched in the headrests—in an April 2006 cocaine bust. The car was not registered to Jones then, but Jones told a local TV reporter he had loaned the Cadillac to Darryl Jerome Moore for a music video. Police called Darryl Jerome Moore who had the car the main target of their investigation.[39]

On June 18, 2007, Jones was sought by police for questioning after a shooting at an Atlanta strip club allegedly involved members of his entourage. According to police at the scene, Jones was not present during the shooting, and is not being charged.[40]

Jones was suspended from the NFL for the entire 2007 season for off-the-field conduct.[41] During his suspension Jones signed with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, despite an agreement between TNA and the Titans organization that he would only have a "non-physical" role in the company,[42] and went on to the TNA World Tag Team Championship with Ron Killings. He also established a record label, "National Street League Records", and performed as one half of the rap duo Posterboyz.[35]

[edit] Las Vegas shooting case
On the morning of February 19, 2007, during the 2007 NBA All-Star Game weekend in Las Vegas, Jones is alleged to have been involved in an altercation with an exotic dancer at Minxx, a local strip club. Jones and American rap artist Nelly patronized the club on the evening in question. Nelly, along with someone known only as Richard Rich, began to shower the stage with hundreds of one-dollar bills; an act known as "making it rain." Jones then joined Nelly by throwing his own money for "visual effect." Club promoter Chris Mitchell then directed his dancers to collect the money. According to the club's co-owner, Jones became enraged when one of the dancers began taking the money without his permission. He allegedly 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. Jones then allegedly threatened the guard's life.[43] During this time, Mitchell and a male associate left the club with a garbage bag filled with $81,020 and two Breitling watches, which police later recovered.[44]

After club patrons left following the original confrontation, the club owner claimed a person in Jones' entourage returned with a gun and fired into a crowd, damaging equipment and hitting three people, including the security guard involved in the earlier skirmish. The guard was shot twice, and one of the people hit—former professional wrestler Tommy Urbanski—was paralyzed from the waist down. Jones maintains that he did not know the shooter, although the club's owner insists that Jones did. On March 26, 2007, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department recommended to the city's district attorney that Jones be charged with one count of felony coercion as well as one misdemeanor count of battery and one misdemeanor count of threat to life.[45]

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." 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.[46] Jones has not been connected to the Moore drug arrests or convicted for the Vegas stripper incident.

On June 20, 2007, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Clark County District Attorney's office announced that Jones would face two felony charges stemming from the strip club melee.[47] But on November 13, 2007, Jones accepted a plea deal;[48] on Dec. 6, Jones pleaded no contest to one charge of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. He was given a suspended prison sentence of one year, probation, and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.[49]

On June 25, 2007, Tommy Urbanski and his wife Kathy sued Jones in civil court, claiming that Jones had bitten his left ankle, and was responsible for the shooting.[50] The lawsuit also named the Tennessee Titans franchise and the NFL as defendants, on the grounds that Jones' employers knew of his erratic behavior prior to the Minxx incident, but did not suspend him until afterwards. Had the Titans suspended Jones prior to the NBA All-Star game, the suit argues, he would not have been invited to the Las Vegas events, and the incident would not have taken place.[51]

On April 21, a document revealed that Jones paid $15,000 to various people involved in the Las Vegas shooting.[
