Who knew rapper Lil Wayne had a blog on ESPN where he comments about sports? How nifty.
It is even more interesting noting his most recent blog here where he talks about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell‘s decision to reinstate Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones after a lengthy suspension for an Oct. 7 fight with Pacman’s bodyguard at a Texas hotel. Pacman should return in time for the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Lil Wayne doesn’t think Pacman will turn it around. He says if he was the NFL commissioner he would have banned him for life. It doesn’t matter that the events of Oct. 7 did not warrant a police report, any criminal charges or even a stay in the police department. The altercation was minor, and what really happened was fuzzy in the media reports.
“That’s why I think, in his situation, there is no way he’s turning it around. I mean, come on. He’s a grown man. They don’t give these huge contracts to kids. His main job is to stay out of trouble and he can’t do that, so I’d kick him out of the league,” Lil Wayne writes.
There is a reason Lil Wayne is not the NFL commissioner. He’d fail the drug test. But his points are hollow and without much reasoning. He’s just making an opinion, and that is all fine, but maybe he shouldn’t be preaching to the choir. If Pacman cannot play football anymore, why should Lil Wayne be allowed to make records or play concerts?
Of course we do not condone Pacman’s history. The entire episodes of criminal charges and trouble is disappointing for anyone. But the most recent incident shouldn’t have even been something the NFL got involved in. With that said, Goodell’s statement that Pacman doesn’t have any more chances left is a smart one. We wish Pacman luck.
