Aldon Smith will play


Recommended Posts

Jim Harbaugh has stated that Aldon Smith will play in the game on Sunday.  I think he is a game changer so just wondered how we counter someone like this who is going to be out to prove something due to his latest tango with drugs, DUI, & the San Jose Police Department Friday at 7:00am.  Before this, he has been pretty clean other than getting stabbed, shooting firearms at his party, alledgedly shooting a party-goer at his house doing major debilitating bodily damage and facing criminal charges, and a previous alleged DUI.  I would have gladly paid the $10.00 cover to his party and $5.00 well drinks to see fireworks like that. Thoughts?

I think if you're mad about this, it's only because they're playing against us tomorrow.  If they weren't matched up against us this week, none of us would really care what they do or don't do about Aldon Smith.

SERIOUSLY?! YES WE WOULD.  sorry my caps lock was on. lmao. yes we would. when does anyone, absolutely anyone get away with drinking and driving, wrecking a car, alone thank God, and smoking weed and going to jail,......and still get to play the game?! that's utterly ridiculous!! and it should not be allowed! these days more than ever, NFL stars are role models.

For all those saying the league needs to step in Joe Lefeged also has a pending legal issue and I don't see many Colts fans calling for the league to step in and suspend him.  I know he doesn't have the number of issues Smith has had but it's been the NFL policy in legal matters to let the court system play out for the most part before they step in and hand out punishment.

I used to get mad, but now I expect them to get away with this kind of stuff.  I agree that it sucks and it isn't fair.  It's just how celebrities and sports stars are treated.

The NFL needs to step in and suspend Smith. This is *.

They realistically can't with any effect right now. It's just as useful to not suspend him before this game as it is not to, as he has the right to appeal, which would mean he can't be suspended while his appeal was active and could play Sunday anyway. They wouldn't get through an appeal in 2 days.

 

The likelihood is that he'll be suspended Monday or Tuesday.

 

It's up to Harbaugh to send a message in the meantime, which I guess "Get wasted and slam your car into a tree, without waking yourself from your stupor, and get (allegedly) reduced playing time" at this time.

saw on twitter form mort that under the cba the 49ers can't suspend him for this. Also being reported he might enter a rehab facility a after today's game. The most Harbaugh could do is make him a healthy scratch but I don't think he will.

Good to know. Thanks for the clarity.

    • Wentz will need protection if he is going to deliver. Yesterday it was said of him he was thought to be the second coming of Andrew Luck. Lets hope that is not the case when he goes under center and gets racked all season long like Luck.
    • Luck retired right before the 2019 season.   That only gave Ballard 1 offseason to address the QB situation.  He knew the team was good and didn't want to waste a year so he brought in Rivers.   Rivers had a good year despite no training camp or preseason with the receivers.  Went 11-5.   68% completions, 24TD's, 11 INT's.  Lost by 3 in the playoffs.  I was pretty happy with the season.  Now, a year and a half later he has the future QB on the team.   I'm glad he didn't reach too much.  I suppose he could have drafted Jalen Hurts but he took Pittman and Taylor instead and grabbed Eason in the 4th round.  I think he handled this well.
    • But we got Mark Hermann.   Colts won that trade.  Ha ha. maybe if they would have used the pick they got from Denver better.   They took Ron Solt.  
    • My big gripe with Ballard has been not addressing long-term QB.    I think last year was wasted because, at best, it was a 1-2 year solve and we knew that going in. I hear all the time about a rookie QB wasting prime years of an established team which is essentially what Rivers did.    This is also why I'm very high on the Wentz move. You have to make a move for a long-term QB at some point and, imo, the sooner the better. I'm not particularly affected if this move fails (at least we're trying now). I regularly hear that missing on a QB will set your franchise back several years. You know what else will set your franchise back? Not having a QB.   My gripes with Ballard are over now.
    • This is actually true. If people didn’t watch him on the field this is exactly what they would think. I love the leader he has already turned into also. You can tell with his comments he will be a captain some day.
