    Pacman's defense: What about the other 283 guys?"

    I would respect Mr. Pacman much more if he'd just shut up, take his punishment like a man and then grow up.

    You know, when he and his attorney put it like that he's got a slight point.

    I honestly didn't realize the number was that high until I saw the story on the wire tonight. I mean, that's close to four arrests a month since 2000. And I'm noticing that the Hammer of Rog hasn't come down on Tank Johnson yet.

    Good luck with that, Pacman. Goodell has taken some action less than a year into his tenure. It would be one thing to argue about the other players if this were Paul Tagliabue, because then he might have a case.

    Instead, I don't see how much would come of this.

    Well, the rule was put in, and Pacman and Henry were disciplined under it retroactively. You could certainly say that since the rule wasn't in place at the time the incidents occured, they couldn't be prosecuted under the new rule.

    If I do something, and a month later a law that makes my act illegal gets passed, The DA wouldn't be able to try me under the new law retroactively. It's not a prefect analogy, but it fits well enough.

    That being said, I think Pacman gets his from Johnny Law somewhere down the line soon, since some of the acts he did were illegal when he did them.

    Goodell is setting the bar with PacMan. The 283 others have no relevance. Or relevence. However it's spelled.

    But as I said, all of his "incidents" occured before the rule was passed. If you rule retroactively on two (Including Henry) you should rule retroactively on all.

    They've got a shot at getting this reduced.

    Tank is not a convicted felon. That is all.

    he was sentenced to jail for probation violations and there are still weapons charges pending.

    not a convicted felon, just a piece of shit thug who should be banned like pacman

    This is the NFL, not the Supreme Court. Goodell can do whatever the fuck he wants. That said, if anyone gets in the kind of trouble that Henry and PacMan have, they will undoubtedly receive similar punishment.
