Ok this news is a little old, but I thought I would post anyway. I didn't see this posted, so I don't know how many of you ar familiar with this situation. To sum it up Dwight Jones had posted to facebook a flier with plans to throw himself a birthdday/New Years celebration. The flier which used Jones name and image in a UNC uniform to promote the party claimed to offer free admission to the "first 24 ladies" at the door, plus "24 free shots every hour on the hour" and a $500 cash giveaway for "some lucky ladies in the building," all courtesy of D. Jones. (Admission starts at $10, if you're interested, or $20 for VIP. Dress code is "sexxxy casual.") It also touts Jones as a "2012 NFL Projected Top Draft Pick." NCAA rules prohibit athletes from allowing their name or image to be used to promote an off-campus business or for-profit entity. Jones committed a secondary NCAA violation when he allowed his name and image to promote a birthday party in his honor on New Year's Eve. For this offense Dwight was suspended from the teams bowl game, a decision that was later overturned.
Now I have been a big Dwight Jones to the 49ers proponent. I think he is the type of player we need to draw attention away from Vernon and Crabs in the passing game. My question is what kind of impact do you think this may have on his draft stock? Me personally, I think that the whole thing is a little silly and not that big of a deal as long as Dwight isn't the time to party all the time, and can buckle down and get serious when it come to football on the next level.
