Quote:
Giants WR Plaxico Burress is not expected to get further discipline by the league for his off-field gun problems. Commissioner Roger Goodell said that because Burress isn't a repeat offender, he shouldn't need more punishment. "We're looking at repeat offenders and we may not wait for the process to conclude when we have repeat offenders," Goodell said. "You can have false accusations once, maybe twice. When you start getting to multiple (arrests), you're putting yourself in the wrong position, you're making the wrong decisions in the wrong places."

Obviously that wouldn't matter anyway given the fact Burress might go to jail, but if things work out for him he might play next season.

Even if he doesn't go to jail it's only a matter of time until he messes up again. He surely doesn't feel that what he did was wrong and if he can mess up that much with a spouse who is a lawyer then I don't expect him to change his appraoch on life.

This is kind of annoying even though i love Plax as a player. The league is not consistant at all with any suspensions.

Did people actually think he'd be suspended for a prolonged period of time? He's a numbskull, but he hasn't been in as much trouble as Pacman and Henry. Like Goddell said, they're targeting repeat offenders. This is the first time Plax has had a serious brush in with the law.

I'm still expecting something like a four game suspension, but that's something the Giants can live with.

Don't be surprised to see Burress plea down to misdemeanor gun charges and receive a virtual slap on the wrist through probation.


The people that want to see him in jail are dreaming. You don't go to jail for shooting yourself in the leg. Not in this legal system.

Dammit.

I was hoping for a lengthy suspension. Plax is to good of a player when he is matched up against the Eagles.

They suspended Jamal for something when before he even played. Dude brought a loaded gun to a club and he doesn't get jack.They never found Biggie and Tupac's murderers, but they could arrest O.J. the next day. Nicole Simpson can't rap! I want justice !

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this law new? It would depend on the DA, but they could decide to make an example out of Plaxico. I doubt it, but it's possible if someone wants to make a name for themselves.

Apparently, Plax was arrested back in 2002, when he was a Steeler, for public intoxication and his brother assauted a police officer.

It also said, "It was the second time Burress has been charged on an alcohol-related offense in the past five months."
http://www.post-gazette.com/steelers/20020515steelers0515p3.asp

So, he is a repeat offender and the level of scrutiny should be such. Goodell is such a two-faced phony. How many times has Plax been arrested for some kind of infraction? How is he not a repeat offender, Goodell?

Problem with that is that he is pleading not guilty.

"Burress, who accidentally shot himself Friday night in the right thigh at a Manhattan nightclub, did not enter a plea on the class C felony charges, though his attorney said Burress planned to plead not guilty."

Let me guess, it was the one-armed bandit. Eh, Burress?

Since Goodell is all about consistent punishment, his reasoning behind this leads me to believe that Vick will not get any punishment from the league.

But then again, Goodell is lying, corrupt, and the worst commish ever.

Good news, but I can't see Plaxico avoiding jail-time anyways.

jonu62882, I know you're a law student. But right now, you're speaking as an Eagles fan (and therefore a Giants hater). I'm not going to get into this legal mumbo jumbo with you, because well, I'm an engineering student.

You seem pretty set on the fact that Burress is going to jail, and won't be back with the Giants. How about a sig bet?
