The phrase “c’mon, man” is often used to describe boneheaded plays in the NFL each week, but now it’s more applicable to the incredibly stupid stuff some of the players do off the field. All I have to do is say the name Pacman Jones and your head just starts shaking, right?
The Cincinnati Bengals‘ troubled cornerback has been in more trouble than Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin in every book they’ve been in combined, yet he was cited for disorderly conduct at 2:30 on Monday morning. This man has been on a zero tolerance policy for Lord knows how long, yet he thought it was a good idea to yell profanity at the police officer who pulled over his friend for drunk driving. C’mon, man.
And in keeping up with the Joneses, Baltimore Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones was “injured” on a party bus when he got knocked over the head with a champagne bottle by a stripper named Sweet Pea. Tell me how a man who hasn’t played since Week 1 with a strained MCL ends up in a situation that gets him injured by a stripper named Sweet Pea. C’mon, man.
