Ya anything anyone says until the ruling comes out is total hogwash.

I thought initially that 4-8 games, but that was before the LAX incident was disregarded and his felonies were reduced.

My best guess is now 2 games.

Maybe 5 but last years time off factored in? Either way I think this is a joke if he gets a substantial suspension, especially on the heels of the Rice fiasco. Once those charges got pleaded down, he got no jail time and nothing came of the LAX incident, I firmly felt there should have been no punishment, or at least last years time should have been factored in.

That would be a huge suspension for a marquee player and it will re-hash people's anger that a guy who beat his girlfriend unconscious gets a lighter sentance then Aldon, who only hurt a tree.
Yeah, but it could take that tree years to recover.

I hope Schefter is way out in left field on this one. Besides a yr has passed, or thereabouts, and Aldon has done very well. LAX no charges and it was probably bogus anyway. If goodell is fair, he gives aldon probation...and then if he screws up he is gone for season. I like that in that it is lenient, but has a big stick behind it. And it would be deserved. Also, Aldon is a good kid...and I mean KID, but learning that he HAS to mature. I cannot believe aldon misses anymore time. His parents and sponsor can all do a world of good, and aldon can too in the meeting with goodell. I personally would NOT bring up Rice's name in that goodell has to know he fu**ed up on that one. So don't remind him. I like Schefter, but I don't think he gets it here.

Probation, with auto suspension for yr if any further events. Book it.

Him getting arrested and hurting the NFL image is the problem here. Roger really doesn't care if he didn't get charged. Big Ben got 6 games and was never charged with anything.

This is true, but Goodell does care about the steps that Aldon has taken to correct his problems.

As far as I know, Aldon Smith is one of the few, and perhaps the only, NFL players who checked himself into rehab, for a month I believe, after being busted for a DUI.

In my estimation, that rehab and Aldon's willingness to spend approximately 30 days in rehab, should be a major mitigating circumstance that reduces his suspension to the bare minimum.

Aldon has done more to confront his problems than most, and the court added to Aldon's efforts by insisting that Aldon not consume any alcohol for the next three years.

I agree. From reports it seems like Ray Rice's wife really made the difference in the meeting. And I remember Roger was more stern on Vick b/c he said Vick initially lied to him about the dog fighting instead of being straight up with him. Aldon needs to bring his parents and his sponsor to the meeting with him. Hopefully they can detail the steps he's been taking to remain sober since the DUI. And that should help him. I still don't think he gets more than 4 games reduced down to 2 games. But you just can't tell with Roger. At times it seems like he doesn't give a f**k and just drops the hammer and other times he seems to really care about the players well being.

I'm going to guess Roger will say 5-6 initially, but that after examining the record, he decided to settle on 4 based on Aldon's voluntary rehab.
on top of that has been sober ever since the event

Based on that way of thinking, factoring in the 5 game self imposed voluntary suspension, your saying goodell will say 10-11 games initially settling on 9 games. Seems a bit much

Balkee gonna draft him this year while he's recovering and redshirt him. He will be a beast for us next year... Book it!
I can hear Al Sharpton now:


Oh so Roger Goodell thinks its worse to abuse dogs (Vick) and trees (Aldon) than it is to knock black women unconscious (Rice)? LOL!

Goodell is trying to ban Gordon for the entire year for weed. Wouldn't put it past him to give Aldon a harsh, longer than necessary suspension.

Meanwhile, wife beater Rice gets a slap on the wrist because what could the league and it's fan do without his 3/yards per carry.

LOL! Aldons time away will help him this week
hopefully aldon gets the ray rice treatment
Im betting Aldon is saving some of his work duty Mondays for his suspended weeks to look good with his appeal.
