Does Pacman need a babysitter?

Posted Wednesday, October 15, 2008, at 3:33 PM

So Pacman Jones is having problems...again. Nashville, Dallas or anywhere else, it seems he just can't stay out of trouble.

This time it involves an alcohol-related fight with one of his bodyguards in a Dallas hotel.

Have you noticed how often his bodyguards have been mentioned in some of his many incidents?

What are your thoughts? Does Pacman, a money-spolied brat, need a bodyguard or a babysitter?

Pacman is as you say a money spoiled brat.

He should, be let go,and have to live like the rest of us.

he'll be in the 'big house' or in the cemetery sooner rather than later. the cowboys got exactly what they deserved and now their team is falling apart. this guy is a complete joke that needs serious help, but of course he won't take it. he fits right in with the soap opera that is the dallas cowboys. just glad the titans got rid of him when they did and thank goodness for jerry jones buying in to his sob story. his team is now the laughing stock of the league. whether he plays in the league again or not, he is still a bomb waiting to go off at any time.

Man, I used to really love to watch him play football. Sadly, I didn't love it enough to feel like we should keep him around. Hisw thug mentality was horrible for team morale. This is what happens when you give people who have never had anything millions of dollars. They just can't handle it.

Maybe he should give up sports altogether and contact Kid Rock about opening up their own strip club. Of course, the dancers would have to be armed with pepper spray...

I have said it before and I will say it again, Pacman is a GREAT football player. He went from barely getting by to making millions. Some people can handle the change and some people can't. Evidently Pacman is one of those who can't. I hate that for him though because he really has the potential to be a wonderful football player.

Pacman a Great Football Player... Besides a couple returns for touchdowns he has been an avg. cornerback at best... Big loser is the folks in Tennessee, with his broken promises and demands to be traded Pacman behavior has caused the Titans to give back a draft pick. Here's to hoping the Titans front office and find a loop hole so we can keep our draft pick.

Pacman just needs to learn to grow up and take responsibility.

I tell ya what does not make any sense to me. The stories I read on this incident said that Pacman got into an altercation with one of his body guards?!!

Now I don't know about anyone else, but I don't want no bodyguard that I would even think that I could kick his butt....I want the bodyguard that is so big & bad that eventhough he is my bodyguard I wouldn't think of messing with him for fear of ending up in the hospital sucking soup through a straw.

pacman is one sad individual. He has repeatedly messed up a good career by trying to "break bad."

He will go the way of OJ soon.
