    1m Dennard must report on March 1, 2014 for 30-day sentence, but will get credit for three days already served

    So.... looks like he'll be suiting up for this season afterall.

    27 days to hit the weight room (in house) and be a model citizen. Pats dodged a bullet and end up with a very good player for very little draft capital. But you won't hear about him in any threads moaning about how the Pats suck at finding secondary help.

    Hell play for us at some point in the season. Don't forget about the league sanctions. Theyll definitely suspend him for a certain amount of time. Hope our tougher games won't be til after his suspension.

    I hate cliches, but this may be the best thing that ever happens to him -- a relatively inexpensive dose of alternate reality to help the young man develop perspective.

    He might not even see the 27 days. Short timers like that tend to get released early because of overcrowding problems. Not sure the state of population in prisons in Nebraska, but in many states he would only see a week or two in jail.

    Re: Dennard Sentence

    To be fair I dont think capitalizing on value in the 7th should be the same as evaluating a player against his peers in the early rounds but I dont really care about the perception that Patriots might suck at drafting DB or WR anyway because last time I checked its about how the team preforms not individual players or positions.

    Re: Dennard Sentence

    The question remains - will Goodell suspend him?

    My feeling is a 30 day sentence shows that the authorities are not making a bigger deal out of this than they should - but leave it to Goodell to decide that the Justice System isn't being hard enough and he needs to suspend a player for something done before they were ever in the NFL

    The incident didn't happen while he was in the NFL. He shouldn't be suspended

    Lots of dialogue about this earlier - the contract language leaves the door open for Goodell to discipline players that are convicted while in the NFL for transgressions that occurred before they were in the NFL.

    There is still risk.

    But now its the Patriots and not his beloved Jets. I bet he will make a BS statement about how he will be looking to see if further punishment needs to happen to make Pats fans sweat, before he does nothing because he really can't like you said.

    Re: Dennard Sentence

    Yes - but I'm sure everyone is aware that Goodell HAS suspended players for incidences that occured BEFORE they were in the NFL before.

    He's also NOT suspended players in the past - so no surprise, Goodell has been inconsistent.

    So we do need to wait until they make a statement to celebrate.

    Would it surprise anyone if he gave a Jets player a pass, but suspended a Patriots player - both of whom had run-ins with the law PRIOR to joining the NFL?

    Note that Shaliza says he will serve the prison time in March 2014, following the 2013 season.

    Legally he cannot punish a player based upon a conduct policy that they hadn't agreed upon at the time of his incident.

    Sentence could have been worse. Dennard keeps a low profile model citizen Judge could go easier on him. Executioner that can factor in is Goodell with a suspension that could have us scrambling to cover for him.

    He reports for jail beginning on March 1, 2014, so we'll have him for the entire season this year, including offseason workouts.

    Sounds like he got screwed but, we'll see most of our coverage as pro patriot. So not sure we'd have the same outlook if he were a jet. But, Dennard seems like a good kid. Hopefully he doesn't end up in there for too long. Goodell would be a hugehypocrite to suspend him.

    Called it:

    Per Breer

    So it is time to set precedent by breaking precedent already set because the precedent was set in the case of a JEST player. Now it's the evil Patriots so we need to ignore what has been established and change the rules to screw them over.

    Re: Dennard Sentence


    ummm, NO. I am not aware of that. Please identify WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY?

    The only guys I was aware of were not PUNISHED (suspended) for CONDUCT before becoming NFL players, but rather punished for CONDUCT that FALSELY IMPACTED THEIR ELIGIBILITY (hid their ineligibility) to be drafted by the NFL.

    Everyone knew about his incident which OCCURRED BEFORE THE DRAFT; so this is not in the same ball-park.

    Go-To-Hell suspending Dennard would be ( IMO ) a PRECEDENT. Not one I wouldn't put past him; but a precedent none-the-less.

    If you have a specific case that I am missing knowledge of- please at least give me a name (url always better - but name is fine.) Thanks.

    30 days is not bad at all, and you can consider that 100 hours of community service is almost already worked into his Patriots contract. Im glad the Pats have him, but it sucks that he punched a cop.

    Didn't they look into the Ellis situation before deciding not to do anything about it?

    I'm sure the Patriots will bring up that Ellis nearly killed a guy and got a longer jail sentence with no NFL punishment.

    Yeah - but that was just a civilian, which is fine nobody cares.

    Hitting a cop causes moral outrage and histrionics about how the current generation is terrible and the baby boomers demand some over the top retribution for the boys in blue (who aren't even in the top 10 most dangerous jobs, btw)

    And no, I don't hate cops, I hate double standards. One of my better friends is a cop.

    my belief is that he won't be disciplined by the NFL

    he already paid the price by dropping to the 7th round......he was supposed to have been a 2nd rounder, and if he was, would have gotten substantially more money than he would have.

    the guy has/is going to pay a price for his mistake

    it is time to move on

    Boy, some of you who are saying he got too much are really F'd up.

    He hit a cop, plain and simple.

    I don't care if he plays on my team. He got about as light as he could have gotten. Anyone who says different needs to step back and evaluate their priorities.:confused:

    I'm happy it was light but you don't hit a cop.
