I guess I'm just getting old. But I can remember when kids looked up to athletes who were role models and gods to us.

I can remember following the career of Al Kaline, long time rightfielder of the Tigers. About 1960 he was offered the team's first hundred thousand dollar contract; he turned it down. He would only accept ninety thousand because the team wasn't winning.

Look what we have today.

Tennessee has Jones, the Cowboys have Owens.

Both jerks living in a fantasy world.

At least TO isn't involved with drugs, strippers and the gansta lifestyle ...

Our local shrink-on-call for the Tennessean said Jones has some anger-management issues.

In a petition filed by the state, it was alleged that Jones has 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. Judge Robert Stone in Morgantown granted the probation extension of 90 days, though the state requested for it to be extended up to a year.

He has proven that he can not abide by the rules of his probation, so they sentence him to more probation. No wonder he doesn't take it seriously.

A new one at Club Mystic in downtown Nashville on 10/26/2006!

"A Metro Police detective on Saturday cited Titans cornerback Pacman Jones, charging him with misdemeanor assault, and the incident puts Jones' availability for today's game against the Texans in doubt.

Jones is accused of spitting in the face of a female Tennessee State student after an argument at a nightclub Thursday morning."

I was just listening to Mike and The Mad Dog sports radio when a regular called called in with a relative who was paralyzed from the waist down in the PacMan Jones shooting, he was a bouncer at the club.

Upon leaving the club earlier in the night with a fellow thug PacMan told the OTHER boucer that he would be dead before the night is over. Apparently the 2 thugs came back and went Wild West City trying to make good on the promise to kill the bouncer.

Bumping my comment from the other thread so people can see this thugs background.
