Aldon may have threatened that he had a bomb, but the real truth of the matter is that he IS A BOMB. And he's just waiting to go off at some point. I don't where or how he will implode, but he will directly or indirectly cause the person or persons around him to die once the final fuse has been lit.
I don't care how much talent this guy has. I really don't. I warned you guys the last time that he wasn't done yet and we needed to cleanse our hands of this cancer, and what did I get from you? Nothing short of ridicule. So I ask you, honestly this time, how many chances does this guy get? How many more opportunities? How many times must he piss each chance away before you come the conclusion that, no matter how talented he is, he's just not worth the headache?
We have no idea how this stuff is going to shake out legally, I'm not saying the following will happen but it sure could so follow me here:
Previous DUI charges get pled down
Weapons charges go away (they were really overblown in the first place, just a permit thing that he had in Missouri and not in Cali)
This charge gets dropped or pled way down
Then what do you have? A guy with a bunch of traffic violations and an alcohol problem. I agree 1000000% this guy has F'd up a lot, but if you put it in perspective, imagine the kind of scrutiny that would have been on Lawrence Taylor had social media been around during his day & many others. Yes he's screwed up, this one was insanely stupid.
At the same time, this is one of the best football players on the planet. He makes our team much better with him on the field, I hate the bad publicity, I hate the fact that we don't know what the commissioner will do in terms of league discipline. In reality, sports are based on talent, young talent to be specific and Aldon is as good at his position as anybody in the NFL. I hope the Niners ride this out, see what happens legally, pick up his 2015 option and really get on his case/monitor him closely, if he shapes up, give him the extension after the 2015 season (or even franchise him for a year) if not, trade him, some team out there will take him.
