If Smith gets less than eight games, he's got dirt on someone or the Players Union is about to blow up on the suspension issues all together.
Aldon didn't get busted for substance abuse/PED's. They did, and that's a pretty big difference. Plaxico got 4 games for shooting himself in the leg, Roethlisberger got 6 for his stuff., Aaron Berry got 4 for getting arrested twice in a year, and Kenny Britt got 1 game for being arrested or having run-ins 9 times. Look at the crap Tank Johnson did with gun charges and probation violations, and he got 8 games (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Johnson). Aldon has already essentially served a 5 game suspension, so unless the commissioner gets a bug up his ass and wants to make an example of him for some reason, I can't see him getting suspended for more than a couple games at most. Here's a list of NFL suspensions so you can form your own opinion.:
NONE of those other guys have ever harmed a tree. Aldon hurt a HELPLESS tree and you people are trying to make light of it. The tree had no ability to defend itself, or move out of the way of the vehicle.
At least if you strangle your girlfriend or knock out your fiance, they have a chance to fight back or run away. They have a CHANCE. The tree had none.
At least if you swerve in and out of lanes on the freeway, nearly colliding with other vehicles, the drivers of those other vehicles have a CHANCE to swerve out of your way. Again, the tree had no chance to move, because it was rooted down.
Aldon gave that tree NO CHANCE, and this is what is being overlooked by all the Aldon apologists.
