'Pacman' looks to regain fans' trust: Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones bought a full-page newspaper advertisement to print an open letter in which he promised to regain trust of his team and fans.

I think this FPP is too much troll bait. Not that it was intended as such, perhaps - but let's let sleeping dogs lie on this one.

What is the difference between Pacman and Ms. Packman really???

That's a good idea his agent had!

Yeah, sorry about that Weedy. I wasn't thinking about that when I posted this, it was more or less bringing up the next step into what Pacman is doing now that he's suspended and trying to let the fans, NFL and the Titans' organization know that he's trying to change or at least that's what it looked like to me.

Or at least that's what he paid us to think~

Chris Henry also took out an ad, it was just a small classified that said "The Real fans know what I'm about, and If you ain't behind me when I can't play, you ain't a real fan. Peace, CH15"

I don't want to come off sounding like an ass, but could we please try to refrain from posting so many wire stories? For example, the ad in this story was placed in the Tennessean, so go to the Tennessean's website and see if there's more interesting info. The local angle adds a ton. Wire stories are convenient, but they're generally crap because usually they're nothing more than very vague re-writes of a local story. You can get so much more info if you read the wire story and then try to find the local story that started it all. I'm seriously not posting this to be an ass, or at any one person in particular, so please just take it as constructive criticism. I know people think some of us get hung up on the guidleines, but if we hold the standards high, it remains a fun place to visit every day.

Peace, CH15" Cinci fans who read it then probably took a page out of Pukeman's playbook and threw-up on their newspapers.

SummersEve, if that's an ass, you can call me the left cheek.

What is the difference between Pacman and Ms. Packman really??? The pink bow and lack of pac-penis.

"lack of pac-penis" Wakka-wakka-wakka.... Beuwwp! But to get all geeky and "engineer" about this, aren't spheres non-mating surfaces? So, how is this explained?

Sounds to me like the new conduct policy is having an impact, albeit belatedly. But I suppose I'll be crucified for saying so.

Kudos to Jones for doing this, if he's sincere. It sounds to me like he is really going to make an effort from now on. Going back to school sets a great example, as he's not wasting his time pissing and moaning (well, appealing, sure) about his suspension. Maybe it just took him a bit too long to grow up, but he's going to take this chance to be an adult now. On the flip side, of course is Henry. LIDJ, did Henry really take that ad out in the Enquirer? If so, it doesn't sound like anything has sunk in at all with him. He's making it hard to be a Bengals fan when it should be getting easier. Would be a shame if I could be a fan throughout all of the 90's and get chased away by Chris freakin' Henry.

Well considering a pac-thing has never been seen mating in the wild and they refuse to do so while in captivity, this all merely speculation. I suppose an argument could be made for some kind of asexual reproduction (cellular division perhaps) after all aren't this pac-things just really big yellow amobeas? Oh yeah, something about football and black people.

why would Mr. Pacman want to mate anyway? he eats balls for a living.

No, I was making fun of his comments to Rich Eisen on NFL total access. And no, it doesn't sound like anything at all has sunk in with him. If only the lil' turdball realized I was a Bengals fan in spite of him... I cheered for 2-14 teams I liked alot better than this one.

I cheered for 2-14 teams I liked alot better than this one. Amen to that. It's kind of sad that I believed you that he placed that ad. Not so much that I'm gullible as much as it's believable.
