Adam Jones was suspended (again) by the NFL this afternoon for the fight he had with his bodyguard last week. Those on the scene of the altercation say Jones had been drinking which is a violation of his parole with the NFL, although police did not give him a breathalizer test and charges were not filed.
Who's to blame for Jones' suspension just 6 games into his first season with Dallas? Obviously he shouldn't have been reinstated if he can't stay clean before the half-way point of the NFL season. But who should get more of the blame?
- Do you blame Jerry Jones for trading for him and taking a chance on him? This wasn't a good move for the team.
- Do you blame NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing him back into the league? Jones wasn't ready to return to work if he can't stay away from bottle just 6 weeks into his reinstatement.
- Do you blame the NFLPA for not doing more to help Jones? Should the NFLPA have done more to help Adam, make sure he's not chemically dependent on alcohol and provide him with all the help he needs?
- Or is Adam Jones the one person to blame for his situation? Does it matter if Jones becomes diagnosed as an alcoholic? If that's a disease that he can't control, is he still to blame?
