The Official Aldon Smith Thread **UPDATE - 9 GAME SUSPENSION

This looks like one of those stupid jokes that goes wrong - other people have done similar if I remember correctly.

Obviously he was joking about having a bomb and I suspect he then got wound up or upset when they treated it seriously.... not sure on US law but I think it is a felony/crime to falsely declare, but I wouln't expect much to come from it.

Very stupid though....

Wouldn't count on nothing coming from it, they take this stuff very seriously, as they should. Dude is an idiot, and the team needs to get out in front of this epidemic of idiocy before the players eliminate them from the playoffs in the offseason
If Gaylord M Focker was able to go on and live his life I am sure Aldon Smith with all his financial resources will make out fine!
While Niner fans can't be happy about this latest Aldon incident, what burns my butt is all the knee-jerk, sensationalistic "reporting" that's going on. It's pretty obvious Aldon has some issues...and should be held accountable for his actions. That said, he's not Ray Lewis, who somehow got off from a murder investigation. He's not Aaron Hernandez who may never get out of prison if convicted of murder. It's unfortunate there's been such a rash of off-the-field incidents this off-season...but it's happened. Best thing we can do is let the legal system work, let the FO make whatever decisions they can, based on THE FACTS. For those saying they should just cut Aldon and move on, that's easy to say. He's one of the best players on the team, so they'll want to do whatever they can to make sure he gets the help he needs. H-E-L-P. That's the answer not vilifying the guy or the FO. That doesn't help the situation.
Im starting to wonder if Dee Ford and Attachou(sp?) are out of the question at pick 30. Not to vilify Aldon or anything but we clearly can't rely on him right now. The whole thing is just really disappointing.
The recent legal troubles of Aldon and Colin are a positive for the 49ers. Now we can revolve any new contracts (which will already be a bit lower than prior to these incidents) around legal issues. So when cases like these come up again the 49ers wont be strapped financially with these guys (99% talking about Aldon, 1% colin).

You would think someone like parent, manager, agent etc would tell a guy like COlin........LOOK, you are going to get the fat, juicy contract you have always wanted this off-season. It will set you and your family up for life. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS STAY OUT OF THE CLUBS, stay away from drugs, dont drink and drive, and avoid random women in hotel rooms. Just this 1 off season. After you sign the dotted line, do waht you want lol.

Actually you would think to tell him that he has a chance to do things that have never been done before by an NFL QB, all you have to do is have the desire to go out and accomplish them and worry about all that other crap when football is over.

"I heard him say, 'I did nothing wrong,' " Egans said. "The whole thing ratcheted up from there. The cops were trying to calm him down. He wasn't out of control; just agitated."

"At approximately 1400 hrs, a 25-year-old male resident of San Jose, California, was going through Terminal 1 screening and was randomly selected for a secondary screening. The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area. Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him at the gate and he was positively identified as the person in question. Once again the male subject became uncooperative and he was detained and taken into custody by Airport Police and is currently being transported to LAPD for booking."

@NinersNation I didn't see his mouth moving. He was just looking the cop up and down. The officer was gesturing and talking.

Because hes been in trouble a bunch before, its an issue, but by itself it doesnt sound like nearly as big of an incident as TMZ is trying to promote. He needs to know that you cant show any signs of resistance at LAX when it comes to random searches. If you argue or make a scene, theyre just going to cuff you and have you taken away.

TMZ trying to say he was yelling "BOMB". He said "yeah, ive got a bomb" sarcastically, because they wanted to search him. Obviously you cant say that at an airport in any context, but anyone with half a brain can understand what really happened.

Hes not the first person, or the last to get agitated with a random search at LAX and cause a scene. Its just the fame and the previous history with the law that makes it a big deal.
This. I was screened a second time and arrested just a few years ago at the airport in Toronto for saying "You gotta be f*cking joking right?!" That's literally all I said and the cops jumped me. Airport cops are one of the worst.

TSA thug: Hey that's Aldon Smith of the 49ers, let's do a secondary screening....
Aldon (probably annoyed as f**k): What the f**k? You think I have a bomb or something?
TSA douchebag: OH MY GOD HE SAID HE HAS A BOMB!

Surprised they're not saying he attacked them.

He tells PD not to touch him at first, tries to walk away, then when they stop him, he asks guys to "record this s**t".

Aldon is asking some guys to take video and record/report "all this s**t", complains PD twisting his arm, reiterates he's done nada wrong

Don't airports have video cameras? I'll believe he was going around yelling bomb when they release those videos.

Definitely work with him. No way should we cut him, that would be foolish and it's exactly what 31 other teams want us to do. Just let him play out his contract, maybe even franchise him when his deal expires. We need to buy some time to decide if it's worth extending him or not.

Agree. From what we've heard on the video he wasn't violent, aggressive, or confrontational. He was mad, which is understandable.

According to Sgt. Ortiz, Smith was going through screening when he asked the TSA agent, "Are you going to search me further?"

Smith was told, "That's not necessary," according to Sgt. Ortiz.

Then, Smith responded, according to Sgt. Ortiz, "Why not? I have a bomb."


Is there any proof though? Is there such a thing as a "He said-He said" case?

This is so stupid, even more stupid than the Kaep story. I'll bet he probably said something like "Dude, I don't have a bomb on me okay lol" and they either heard it wrong or have a stick up their ass. One thing is for sure, he needs to get to the bottom of it and start taking responsibility for himself because if he doesn't he career will go down and hard.

How about the "Innocent until proven guilty" argument?
Were you there?
You are jumping to conclusions.
What's so hard about "innocent until proven guilty"?

For all we know some angry moronic fat lesbian TSA agent wanna-be man wanna-be cop didn't like Aldon and claimed he said 'bomb'

Originally posted by btthepunk:
Aldon didn't threaten anyone. He didn't cause mass hysteria, and as far as we know there are only exactly 2 people who know the facts.

Unless they tested him at the station or he admitted to being drunk we'll never know if he was. Officers said "He APPEARED to be under the influence." I can appear to be under the influence when completely sober.
I hope they did test him to find out for sure.

they said he appeared to have been drinking earlier in the day
now how in the hell would they know that?
that's that bs.
they know the trigger words to make stuff look bigger than it is.

after the tmz report i don't trust it. i need the facts before i go either way.

Originally posted by SportsFan:
Ya the "he appeared to have been drinking earlier in the day" is b******t.

Just trying to make this a bigger story.


This.

Of course we will not cut him after this incident though we will probably not extend him this off season either. I think we will pick up the 5th year option and look from there.

People call him immature and in the same sentence sream CUT HIM.

Lol this. And watch Seattle pick him up two minutes later? f**k that. Just suspend his ass again and get him a permanent babysitter.
Dude what is up with these exaggerated and made up reports trying to damage the character of our players? Of course what Aldon did was dumb as s**t. Kap might have put himself in a bad situation as well. But what is up with these immediate reports after these incidents such as "Kap being investigated for SEXUAL ASSAULT" and Aldon "GOING AROUND AIRPORT YELLING BOMB". They later backtrack and say Kap was just involved in a suspicious incident and now were hearing Aldon just made a remark that he had a bomb to the TSA as they are screening him. He wasn't going around like a madman and yelling there is a bomb on the plane. What the f**k is up with the media trying to assassinate 49er players character. Again this does not excuse Aldon from being an absolute idiot and making the comment, but it's not nearly as bad as what was first reported, which keeps happening with these incidents with our players.
49ers should strongly consider drafting a couple pass-rushers. You never think you "need" another player at a seemingly full position until you lose a good one. See: Michael Crabtree and our WRs last year.

Without Aldon, we're just one injury away from our OLB corps being devastated. At least in terms of what they're normally capable of. There's a reason the 49ers have scouted several pass-rushing prospects. I think it's an area we will look at more closely than people think.

I am starting to feel a bit snake bit. Two years ago we lose a Superbowl trip because Kyle Williams can't field a couple of punts. Last year we lose the Superbowl because Aldon and Justin Smith were injured and ineffective playing hurt. This past season we lose a trip to the Superbowl in Seattle with a bunch of bad calls and a failed last drive and if we hadn't lost Crabtree in preseason and Aldon during the season we probably would have been playing at home anyway.

Now we have to deal with all this crap. What the hell is wrong with these guys? The rest of us could only dream of getting to play the game we love and make Millions of dollars a year to do it. They have no appreciation for how lucky they are. Aldon makes almost $10 million this year. That's way more than most of us see in a lifetime and he couldn't care less. There is nothing I wouldn't give up except breathing for $10 Million. He can't give up being a thug and an idiot.

Everything looked real sweet going into this draft. Now we have an extra need at CB because of Culliver and we have to worry about our pass rush because of Smith.

WTF?

I feel the same way man
Was that Culliver with Aldon in the TMZ video? If it was, smh. The last thing we need is those two guys trying to keep each other out of trouble. Lol. We need a babysitter for both of them.
Sarcasm...we talkin bout sarcasm man. Sarcasm.

Ya, I'm with both of you..... At least Kiffin is out of SC, there's something for me to look forward to starting August. For some reason, I see Smith playing in another uniform in his second contract. Just seems that the guy can't keep it together and I don't think the 49ers are going to give him the Dez Bryant treatment.
