That was speculation. If the police knew he was drinking they would have him tested and booked. If he wasnt charged with public intoxication why are we concerned with this

This! If the police didn't bother to test him I'm not sure why it's relevant.

"He was not what we considered to be intoxicated," LAX Police Sgt. Karla Ortiz told CSNBayArea.com, "but he appeared as if he had been drinking earlier in the day." Sgt. Ortiz said Smith would not be administered a blood-alcohol test because, she said, "Whether he was drunk or not was not the reason for his detention, arrest or booking."

Kinda thin.

Aldon Smith Sees Room for Improvement on Field

Aldon Smith didn't just pass the standard, team-wide conditioning test to open training camp.

The San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker aced it.

"A couple of guys made some comments," the svelte-looking Smith said Thursday, ahead of the squad's first practice. "I hit this offseason really hard."

Smith, who has not had a normal spring and summer off of the field, did his best to prepare for the 2014 campaign on it. He said he changed up his workouts, with an emphasis on improving his power and technique.

How exactly does a pass-rusher with 42 sacks in his first three NFL seasons get better?

"All around," Smith said. "I'm far from reaching the top, so I have some climbing to improve.

"I'm in the best shape I've been in I'm coming into a camp. My mind is in the best spot it's been in, so I'm feeling great."

Aldon finally beats the sack record this year, book it.

Finally? It'll be his 4th year in the league, and (hopefully) only his second complete year as a full-time player.

With a looming suspension?

Doubtful.

His 4th year in the league coming off of trouble, and many expectations; this guy almost achieved the record his rookie year, waiting for Aldon to get it is like waiting for this team to finally win a Superbowl, this is the old days, the all or nothing days.

Sure these are outrageously high expectations, but there are no excuses as to why he CAN'T break it this year. This is going to be the best 49ers team of the Harbaugh era.

Doubtful.

After missing several games last year he got 8.5... never say never or doubtful for that matter

Hopefully, his punishment is no worse than the Ray Rice treatment

Aldon might not be suspended any games at all. He voluntarily missed 5 games last season and entered rehab. I think he gets a warning and a hefty fine.

Aldon gonna go all Jerry Rice and break the record in 12 or 14 games if he needs to. Also, I don't think he's gonna get suspended

I hope u guys (nflguy49/Disp), anyone else who thinks that, are right with that assumption. I heard a couple of guys on radio mention that too... hopefully, it comes true. If so, there's little to no excuse for him to not break the record

It depends on what the NFL values as more important.

Violence against women, or forgetting to put button thingy's on legally purchased firearms. They have to determine which crime is more heinous.

I am awestruck that Ray Rice only received a two game suspension for knocking out a woman. I will be more awestruck if Aldon's button-less firearms are seen as an equatable act by the NFL.

Gay Rice suspended for two games for beating up his girl so the NFL should give Aldon a free trip to Tahiti for wasting his time.

He punches out his girlfriend in an elevator and is on tape dragging her unconscious body out of the elevator - two game suspension.

I agree. Given that precedent, Smith shouldn't serve ANY suspension.

This.


Any suspension at this point would be an absolute travesty for the NFL. Are they seriously going to equate knocking a woman out with misdemeanor weapons possession? Boy, that would sure make women's groups happy.

Aldon Smith has already missed more games than anyone else in the history of the NFL for a DUI. All that is left is the silly misdemeanor possession thing. A suspension of any kind would be outrageous. I think he will receive a fine, and the NFL can be done with it.

Yes. Basically taking back the five game pay the Niners paid him anyway for his 5 weeks time out. Then he truly has done 5 weeks time. He missed the games and they take his pay just like any other player

Agree and if suspended, it shouldn't be for more than 2 games. This is the crazy NFL though where you can miss the whole season for smoking weed so who knows.
