    We are on 25 pages for Mike Goodson. A scrub running back whos produced nothing in his 4 year in the nfl. There is a reason this guy is on his 3rd team in 3 years. To Jet fans, its like Adrian Pederson was arrested.

    This guy should have been off the team yesterday but because its a idzik signing, he cant make this decision too quickly.

    "they cannot prove who owns the gun"

    Reality check:

    As a professional athlete who represents the team (organization) they play for, you have an obligation to uphold your end of the bargain and part of that is being a RESPONSIBLE ADULT AT ALL TIMES!!

    Being drunk and high (which the last I checked is still illegal in Nj and against NFL rules), parking on Rt.80 and either owning a handgun or being in the car with a handgun, also hanging with a convicted felon is NOT RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR.

    This MF'er should have been kicked to the curb already. Stop making excuses for these losers who cant seem to get it right.
    Let's at least be honest. If this was Adrian Peterson or Jim Brown in his prime, we would be talking rehabilitation and a slap on the wrist. The fact that it's Mike Goodson makes the "dump the loser" argument easy. It's really a cost-benefit issue in the end. A low end, expendable player allows us to implement our moral outrage at very little sacrifice.

    This is a laughable post and demonstrates no understanding of sports history. Babe Ruth was out drinking and partying till all hours of the morning, its well documented, yet I don't think he represents the worst baseball ever had to offer. Athletes and partying has a very long history, a very long one. If we're going to hang Goodson by the neck for it then we better go back in time and hang tens of thousands of professional athletes for the same thing.

    So can I count you as one of the only that are still happy the Jets passed on Warren Sapp for Kyle Brady? Passed on Marino for O'Brien?

    No one can condone what Goodson did the other night. Being intoxicated enough to wind up parked in the middle lane of route 80 is obviously a major issue. That alone should result in the Jets suspending and fining him.

    However, until the gun charge sticks, there's no reason for the Jets to let this guy walk. Let's all take a deep breath and let the investigation run it's course.

    Which part of that do you not get?

    There's a big difference between having too much at dinner or getting into shady escapades with felons at 3AM.
    You just don't get it. They know there is no way the team will have a clue. Because its not used exclusively by drunks, criminals etc. Its a case of I need a ride, for any reason, no questions asked. Id bet its used every day by players. And who the fu(k is going to report back to the team? A driver? He's qualified? Really, how? A team protecting their own investment, dependent on the players contributions is going to suspend its own player? Sure.

    Only clueless fans think teams care that a player is coming home at 3 am. Or that a driver would have a clue as to who is or isn't a felon. BTW, was his friend a felon?

    And let's not forget that it is customary to let the legal process run its course. I am not in favor hasty action before all the facts are in. Did Goodson own the gun? Did he own the big bag of pot? Let the police and the legal system do their jobs. Then, and only then, do you take action. If he is going to be charged with major offenses, then you dump him. If he is charged with only having a joint and being stupid enough to be in a car with someone he shouldn't be with, then you take action that is more in line with the offense.

    It's kind of like companies paying for a corporate apartment even though it might only be used a couple of times per month. Say the Jets contracted this out and it costs $5k per month or $60k per year. That's peanuts to an NFL team and well worth the cost to protect the players.
    why would the Jets care if this is used? it's a service they want used. beats getting behind the wheel.

    why would the Jets pay for legal coverage for the other guy?

    they want the other guy to have bad legal rep so the govt can pin all the blame on the other guy.

    Yep... The government and the police can videotape YOU without your permission, but if you videotape THEM at the same time YOU are liable for a Class 1 Felony in a dozen U.S. states and can go to jail for 15 years on each count.

    A Class 1 Felony is equivalent to RAPE! The same penalty as rape for videotaping a public official without their consent... but no penalty to the government for doing the same exact thing.

    We are losing our rights in this country at an alarming rate.

    For me, it wouldnt matter what the players status was.

    Marino's case was a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors.
    Sapp did have failed drug tests and no I would not have picked Brady, but yes it would have been someone else besides Sapp.

    The fact that you find my post laughable is exactly what is wrong with the mentality in America.

    We are not talking about drinking beers with the boys and banging chicks other than your wife. We are talking about breaking the law on multiple fronts.

    Having fun is great, acting like an ass is not.

    Except that its foolish not to understand the reasons why.

    Not being able to tape government and the police agencies in no way violates your freedom.

    Reading the comments over at youtube, here's an interesting one :


    LadyeCatte 10 hours ago

    Why post a 2yr old story? The charges were dismissed in Sept. 2011, with Circuit Court Judge David Frankland stating, ""A statute intended to prevent unwarranted intrusions into a citizen’s privacy cannot be used as a shield for public officials who cannot assert a comparable right of privacy in their public duties. Such action impedes the free flow of information concerning public officials and violates the First Amendment right to gather such information."

    Sanity prevailed.

    and this one :

    Cape Town 12 hours ago

    This is OLD OLD OLD NEWS... What a jacked up bullcrap thing to post...!!!

    Update: It is Not, Repeat Not illegal to film police in Illinois... This was thrown out and all charges were dismissed...

    It is legal to film police in all 50 states period... Know your rights...

    Right on. Thank you for your well-balanced opinion.

    I think this debate is hitting home on more than Goodson, its more of a morality, right/wrong issue.

    Driving around drunk, with a heater, and reef rock, is not acceptable social behavior, nor should it be considered so. Whether Goodson is guilty of this, well have to wait and see.

    This could have ended far worse if there were an argument, traffic accident, or confrontation at somewhere as mundane as the mcdonalds on the corner after a night of drinking. See it all the time on the news.

    Marino's case was not unsubstantiated rumors. I know someone who went to Pitt with him and said he would do blow right off the bar in a crowded bar.
