Breaking: Pacman Jones and Chris Henry Suspended
According to ESPN, Pacman Jones has been suspended for the entire 2007 season and Chris Henry is suspended for the first 8 games of the 2007 season.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell handed out the first suspensions under his discipline policy, banning Adam “Pacman” Jones for the entire 2007 season and Chris Henry for eight regular-season games.
The two players are suspended without pay for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy and engaging in conduct detrimental to the league on numerous occasions, the NFL announced.
After they serve their suspensions, each player must apply for reinstatement.
“We must protect the integrity of the NFL,” Goodell said. “The highest standards of conduct must be met by everyone in the NFL because it is a privilege to represent the NFL, not a right. These players, and all members of our league, have to make the right choices and decisions in their conduct on a consistent basis.”
It’s good start for cleaning up the image of the sport by the Commissioner and I hope they take a long hard look at reinstatement. Now we just wait for the Player’s Union response.
