    The reduction of the felonies to misdemeanors could help minimize or even eliminate the suspension.

    Wouldn't surprise me, it's not like he plays for the Browns or Jags.

    If he played for the Patriots Goodell would make it mandatory for all players to violate gun possession laws

    Aldon Smith’s dad: He’s very happy with the sentence
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 19, 2014

    Most people wouldn’t be happy with 12 days in jail. But 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith, who was given that sentence for gun and DUI convictions, is thrilled.

    I know he’s very happy with what transpired,” Smith’s father, Thurston Smith, told the San Jose Mercury News.

    It’s easy to see why Smith is happy. He could have been given a much longer jail term, and even the 12-day sentence isn’t as bad as that sounds: He’ll get credit for one day served, and the other 11 days will be served on a work crew on 11 consecutive Mondays, starting July 28. Smith also gets three years of probation, and Thurston Smith thinks that will be good for his son.

    “Probation is really good because you can’t get in anymore trouble,” he said. “We don’t want that to happen at all.”

    As for the other discipline Smith is facing, from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Smith’s father said he doesn’t know what to expect.

    “We don’t have any idea,” Thurston Smith said. “[Weapons convictions] being reduced felony to misdemeanor was huge, and we hope it carries much weight with what Mr. Goodell does. We’re praying for four [games] or less but it’s beyond our control.”

    There was some talk in recent months that Smith might miss the entire season, either because he would be suspended or because he would be in jail. If Smith just gets a short suspension and doesn’t have to miss any games because he’s behind bars, he will continue to be very happy.

    In related news, the Patriots were very happy with the "punishment" of a couple of fines and the loss of one draft pick for years of institutional cheating that led to 3 Super Bowl "wins".

    Can't tell you how many times a Patriot fan wrote "Who cares? We have a top 10 draft pick this season anyway. It's over now, let's move on!"

    So is the bomb "threat" just being ignored? The weapons charges were prior. Is he totally out of the woods on the LAX charges?

    Edit: Guess I just had to go back a few pages. This is really ridiculous. I could see if it was something like a first offense for the guy but REALLY? Any one of US would be rotting in jail.
