    It's about time!



    Those punishments are severe and will cost these guys a lot of money. On top of all that the conditions that they must adhere to for the rest of their careers, all but ensures the end of their careers. No way these two jokers can stay out of trouble. If they get in trouble while serving their suspensions it all but insures they will be banished for life. I also agree with somebody else in this thread that states if any of us got in the trouble these two have, we would have been fired long ago! These 2 clowns are the reason a new conduct policy had to be written. That is the only reason they are getting off this easy. The next guys that come along will not get the multiple chances like these guys did and they can call Pacman and Henry to thank them when they get hammered after their first offense. Looks like David Stern might be able to learn a thing or two from Roger Goodell. The NBA needs to revisit their conduct policies too! Way too many wanna be gangsta's.

    The difference between the punishments of the two players is to fit the actions they were in trouble for. In Henry's case the incidents were all within the past year and were mostly just dumb**** moves that could be made by any player new to the league: DUI, marijuana possession, and the two big ones-a gun charge and supplying alcohol to underage girls. While these charges are punishable by law (regardless of your personal opinion on some of the charges such as marijuana possession or drinking with someone under 21) they are actions that can be prevented from happening a second time with help and education towards creating a more mature player who still has the possibility to become a positive on and off the field. This may be why Henry is allowed to be around his team and teammates much earlier than Jones will be. If he is surrounded by good influences (such as Marvin Lewis and Chad Johnson) he will be more encouraged and willing to make a change in his life and become a good player, teammate, and role model.

    Jones on the other hand has has multiple incidents outnumbering Henry's over a longer period of time. Also, the severity of the incidents that he has been involved in is much greater than those of Henry. The last incident was just the straw that broke the camel's back. After being tied to so many other arrests and managing to slip out of them it was then conveyed as true arrogance and perceived invincibility by Jones to commit such an act as he did in that Vegas strip club. Had that incident been an isolated one he would only have received a slap on the wrist by today's NFL. Even with Mr. Jones too cheap to actually be a bigshot, cheapness and mistreating women are not high on the NFL's punishable list. Instead it was his record and multiple suspicious ties to other criminal events within the past few years that earned him the "sit on your *** in your big house" suspension. Mr. Jones' legal troubles have not just involved recreational drug use or pedestrian misbehavior. Instead he has had vehicles involved in major drug-trafficking stings, with substances such as cocaine, as well as numerous other charges of the like which until this time DA's and the NFL have been unable to pin on Jones as having him personally involved. Now that they have a solid case against him on at least one charge they are not only throwing the book at him, but the whole library as well.

    Why I do not personally agree with many of the actions Roger Goodell has taken since becoming commissioner (forcing Jones to become a goodwill spokesperson being one of them) he is commendable in that he is not afraid to take on the role of the "bad guy cleaning up the NFL." While he may be villianized for his actions they will have an eventual positive affect on the league in that players will hopefully become more responsible about their actions knowing that there will be consequences for them (sadly comparable to the way a parent has to teach a child the same thing-at the latest by their teenage years).

    I say this is way over do. But congrats to Goodell for doing something besides talking. I think Henry should've got the same thing as Jones. That would've definitely either taught him a very serious lesson and straighten up, or he would've caught a serious attitude, gotten into more trouble and been out of the league by next year. Win win either way.
