    The sky isn't falling. Just because one Patriot did something stupid doesn't mean that getting arrested is going to be the new black. (Although it'll be interesting to see what effect it has on his career as a Patriot.)

    Ok, it maybe gives him some problem. But it remains it is only marijuana.

    I think the worse offense is that he's dumb enough to drive without a license or his car being registered. Who cares about the weed. How stupid does he have to not have a license and be driving?

    No, for you and I it's "just marijuana," but for an NFL player it means enrollment in the substance abuse program, a direct effect on his career and reputation, and a PR hit for his employer, no matter how small it may be.

    I dont care if the guy smokes weed but as a person in a high profile position you should know not to smoke weed while driving without a license in an unregistered vehicle. a guy like that is nothing but problems waiting to happen and PR problems so you have to ask in a cold way is it worth having him on the team is these problems will occur and the answer is No!

    He didn't have a license with him.

    It's happened to me before.

    I went to court and the judge wrote it off as nothing. I wasn't even fined.

    OK, now I read the article.

    Let's get the facts straight here.

    He was not smoking marijuana. He was in possession of it.

    It also doesn't say he didn't have a license.

    Damn, I was hoping he could be something as a return man. He always impressed me in preseason on returns but he most likely needs to go now.

    I thought you had 24 hours to produce it? I always interpreted driving without a license to mean that he never renewed it and it is expired. I guess I'm wrong.

    I think its fair to say he smokes based on him carrying it. This ain't a court, the standard of proof can be lower than beyond a shadow of a doubt. I got nothing against pot smokers; but you do have ask if its worth tying up a roster spot with someone who could be caught and suspended at any time. There's a million guys out there who'd jump at the chance to have that roster spot.

    If I was a New England Patriot, I'd be drinking myself retarded right now. I understand the loss from sports at other levels; I can only imagine that amplified a hundred times. Heck, I want to drink myself stupid as a fan.

    Didn't the Pats have a drug-related scandal after SB XX (1986)? The sent us on a downward spiral that I just can't see happening now.

    Give him one more chance.

    Or it might be a favor to cut him now. He'll latch on with another team.

    I love Spann's temperament. It's a pity that he evidently doesn't have Andrews' ability.

    First off, the article says nothing about driving without a license.

    Secondly, my court date was set for 1 1/2 months after I was stopped for driving without a seatbelt.

    And driving without a license means you don't have one on your person. You have to have it with you.

    You receive a ticket for driving without a license. If you do not produce it within 48 hours, the ticket sticks. If you produce, it you're fine. That's the way it works in New York, at least.

    Re: Willie Andrews Aressted on marijuana possession

    Of course, if you're not driving with your license, or in possession of marijuana for that matter, it's not like SWAT will surround your car at the end of your driveway. You have to do something for the police to pull you over, and then make the discovery.

    In this case, let's look at the facts:

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/breaking_news/2008/02/patriots_defens.html

    I'm sorry, but I don't call the PD whenever there is a car with tinted windows in my neighborhood. Whoever made the call obviously had good reason to suspect drug activity was going on.

    Let's make no mistake about it: Andrews was stupid to put himself in such a position.
