He's terribly talented, and I think, has been a little screwed by Goodell.
I'm not sure the punishment fits the crimes, in his case, especially when compared with, oh let's say...Ray Lewis.
Not to be critical but didn't he and his "posse" leave a strip club bouncer paralyzed after one of their nights out?
Now that one is clearly serious, whether or not the facts are disputed. Facts are always disputed in shit like that. I have no problem with the punishment he received so far for that, but Ray Lewis' encounter at a club ended up in somebody being dead. I'm just sayin'....
It's the intoxication, disorderly conduct and assault charges (the assault having been withdrawn by the woman) that I think have been over-hyped. HOWEVER
, dude will never ever ever play for the Steelers, nor would I want him to. As I said, talented guy. But I don't want thugs playing for the Steelers ever.
I didn't like it when Miami signed Willie Williams. I'd like it even less if someone like Pacman became a Steeler.
And I certainly didn't mean to imply that I thought the Rooneys are ever wrong in not taking "bad actors". That's one of the primary reasons I'm a Steeler fan. The respect I have for the Rooneys and the way they run the team.
