Just reinstate him. This slow approach to making a decision on Pacman’s fate is not looking good for Commissioner Roger Goodell. Apparently, Goodell will make this decision by Sept. 1, one week before the season starts. That’s not very fair to the Dallas Cowboys. I bet if this were a Patriots player, he would be reinstated by now.
The NFL released the following statement today:
“Goodell told Jones that his continued participation in the NFL depends on demonstrating that he can conduct himself in a lawful and reliable manner. Jones will be expected to continue the personal conduct program established for him by the NFL and the Cowboys and to avoid further adverse involvement with law enforcement.”
I think it is apparent that Adam “Pacman” Jones will be reinstated. This piddlywiddly approach to making the final decision is just plain silly. Why does it matter if he is reinstated now or Sept. 1? It makes absolutely no sense to prolong this because if he fouls up, Goodell can pull the plug on him.
So, Goodell, just make the decision we know you are going to make and let the Cowboys get on with their season. The NFL has thrown enough roadblocks in the Cowboys way and it is time to treat all teams fairly.
