Three Strikes and You're Out?

Recent off-field incidents involving NFL players have the league's own athletes suggesting a "three strikes, you're out" conduct policy, according to NFLPA executive director Gene Upshaw.

When reached for comment on the proposed new rule, Pacman Jones was unconcerned.

"Good thing that spitting on a stripper, inciting a riot in a strip club or other disorderly conduct in a strip club doesn't count as a strike," Jones said. "In fact, nothing that happens in a Vegas strip club even counts for anything - you know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."

Jones also said that even if what happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay there, the fact that his latest incident happened at the NBA All Star game means that it wouldn't count as a strike in the NFL.

"That's an NBA event, man," Jones said. "I mean, that's what you're supposed to do in the NBA."

When told of Jones' comments, Titans owner Bud Adams began ramming staples into his arm.
