Sub-Prime Time? Pacman Jones’ Home Reportedly in Foreclosure

by

I just got word from my boy Brock that Adam “Pacman” Jones’ two million dollar home is presently in foreclosure.

I actually hate the Pacman Jones bashing because the way I see it, the dude hasn’t ever been convicted of anything and most of these alleged charges are just some unfortunate cats looking to get paid ala Eddie Murphy’s sprained eyes skit in Raw, but I just had to join the haters on this one.

Pac, daaaaamn homey, two years ago you was that maaaaan homey, seriously, WTF happened to you?

And you think dude would have learned his lesson what with all those terrible (and by terrible I mean GREAT) Credit Report Commercials.

“F.R.E.E. that spells free, credit report dot com babee, now instead of playing ball and livin’ phat, my crib is up for sale behind some trifling ass hood rats…”

Look, I’m about as white as it gets, but I still get a kick out of white dudes using “urban slang” in a slightly off key manner. Remember that hot Chicken McNuggets commericial?

“Ketchup and mayo…ketchup and maaaayo, McNuggets, McNuggets WHAT!…dippin it in that BBQ Sauce.” LOL. Maybe I’m a weird cat, but that shit is just funny to me. Oh and what about that garbage ass “freestyle” with this clown at the Taco Bell drive-thru?

Nice, your flow is only about 30 years old though pal. And is there a reason why these white dudes have to look like they’ve never bathed? I mean, for real, Mike D from the Beastie Boys was rhyming like that when Lake was in mink diapers, ya dig?

And you know that all these ads are coming from the same bullshit cat…Just writing rhymes and getting over. Wow, another major digression. Imagine that.

Ok, back to Pac. Somebody needs to tell this cat that this NFL money isn’t all that long lasting, ya know? You can’t be missing a full year of employment when the average lifespan of an NFL career is 3 years deep. And unless they legalize dog fighting or Pac mayne gets his own line of skrip clubs, somehow I don’t see Pac being very solvent a few years past playing. Homey best live it up now. Sure, we all know the story. He’ll lose all his damn money, show up in the XFL, Arena Football, CFL or the Surreal life or something, find Jesus and then he’ll be looking to be a minister/”help youth” not go down the wrong path. I hate to be so cynical, but it’s probably true.

Anyway, I feel for Pac and I hope he gets off to a fresh start out in Dallas with TO and company. Truth be told, I’m rooting for Pacman right now. I’d love for him to stick it in the face of all these haters who just use him to articulate their utter disdain for the un-sold black athlete.

    I am not feeling any sympathy for this clown at all. He made his choices and he’s lucky that he’s getting his 4,173rd chance to get it right. If he had no football skills, his azz would be supersizing my extra value meal. Hopefully this time he makes better decisions but I don’t hold out a lot of hope. I’m sure the bouncer who got paralyzed during the melee with Pac Man’s crew wishes Mr. Jones had fully developed his decision-making abilities before he stepped inside the club. Call me a hater if you must. I just want to be proven wrong in this case, please.

    Mr. Jones seems to have a lot of negativity following him. You know one of the chicks who was with Mr. Jones during his disastrous strip club visit turned up dead recently.

    Good luck Pac Man. Please do it right this time.

    WTF was he doing buying a two million dollar house? Did no one tell him about taxes, maintainence, heck, the mortgage? Two years ago I was looking into buying a house in ATL, and once I calculated mortage, HOA fees, taxes, maintenance, insurance, and of course, the cost of decorating, I happily renewed my lease on my apartment. These dudes need to get a grip. Most NFL contracts allow for the players, if they budget right, to live like a person making $50k a year, for the duration of their career and a couple of years afterward.

    Be; as always, impressive!

  4. Free Pac Man Says:

    People just hate on Pac because he doesn’t talk like a white washed guy, goes to strip clubs and basically does what he wants. He’s never been convicted of one damn thing. It’s complete bullshit. Does he hang with thugs, maybe, but if they can’t prove he did anything then this suspension is all a bunch of bullshit. He lost his home because of the suspension. Fuck that. I believe in people being individuals. As long as the boy can play ball, they’ll want him. I agree, if he didn’t play, they wouldn’t want him…BUT HE CAN. Jigga, Kelly, Pacman, not GUILTY bitches…..

    @ Free Pac: He lost his house because of the suspension? I don’t think so. He should know that his career could be over at ANY moment. All it takes is one injury and he’s done. Knowing that fact, he – along with anyone else who is basically one paycheck away from the gutter – should recognize the precarious financial situation this places them in and plan accordingly. Adam at least had the liberty of an above-average income with which to work with…more than I can say for a lot of people who seem to handle their business with less.

    I’m with Be here, if dude played his cards right, he could have worked a spending plan that didn’t have him operating in the red. I hope he realizes this now and is planning for his future because guess what? Football ain’t forever. I realize he probably slept through the NFL rookie orientation but “Financial Planning: Your Money Ain’t That Long” was probably third on the agenda, right after “Skanks, Skeezers and Hos 101” and “Advanced Substance Abuse”. Pay attention for one day, keep the lessons learned in the back of your head as you go about your life and you will be like 97% of the NFLers we never hear this crazy ish about. It’s pretty simple.

    I’m fine with Adam doing whatever the hell he wants: he’s supposedly a grown azz man and should be capable of making his own decisions. I’m all for “the individual” but you must accept personal responsibility for the choices you make or it doesn’t work. Let’s review Adam’s body of work to date:

    =====
    July 13, 2005: Two weeks before training camp is scheduled to begin, Jones is arrested by Nashville police at Titans headquarters. He is charged with assault and felony vandalism stemming from a nightclub altercation.

    Sept. 5, 2005: Six days before the season opener at Pittsburgh, Jones attends the annual Nashville Sports Council Kickoff Luncheon. Later, Jones has a loud, verbal tantrum when told he must wait in line for his vehicle, according to witnesses. He does not pay for valet service.

    Oct. 25, 2005: Five days before the eighth game of the season, it is alleged by the state of West Virginia that Jones has violated the terms of his probation, going back to a suspended sentence after a barroom brawl during his freshman year at college. A judge extends his probation 90 days.

    Feb. 6, 2006: Jones is arrested in Fayetteville, Ga., and charged with possession of marijuana. He is handcuffed after throwing a punch at an officer, according to police, and charged with a felony count of obstruction and two misdemeanors of obstructing police. The drug charge is dismissed in January 2007, although his mother Deborah and a friend, Marcus Bowens, are convicted of possession of marijuana. Jones will appear in court later this month to face the obstruction charges.

    March 23, 2006: A Fayette County drug task force SWAT team serves a search warrant at the Georgia home Jones bought for his mother. When Jones steps out of his Corvette, a drug investigator notices that the car reeks of marijuana. Jones admits to police he has been smoking and that it will be several weeks before he is able to pass a drug test.

    April 18, 2006: According to Nashville police, who cite surveillance camera footage, Jones is one of 12 people gathered at a gas station when a fight breaks out and gunshots are fired.

    Aug. 25, 2006: Jones is arrested in Murfreesboro, Tenn., for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. At the Sweetwater Saloon, he is accused of assault by Toya Garth, who says Jones spit in her face and she spit back. A judge sentences Jones six months probation provided he stays out of further trouble.

    Oct. 26, 2006: Jones is cited for misdemeanor assault at Club Mystic, a Nashville nightclub, where he allegedly spits in the face of a female college student. He is suspended for one game by the Titans, on Nov. 5 at Jacksonville.

    Feb. 19, 2007: Jones is present when an early morning brawl breaks out at Minxx Gentlemen’s Club in Las Vegas. Three people are shot. Club co-owner Robert Susnar claims the shooter — still at large — acted on Jones’ behalf. Jones denies this. No charges have been brought against Jones.
    =====

    I’m sure these are all isolated, unrelated incidents that have absolutely nothing to do with Adam’s character.

    As I said, I hope he makes me a liar.
