    Packers Nick Barnett gets week 1 suspension repealed

    Didn't have time to find the news link, but saw this reported at www.packershome.com

    No suspension, but a big fine 4 Barnett

    Linebacker Nick Barnett was able to get out of a one-game suspension that would have kept him out of the regular-season opener against Minnesota but still was hit with a major fine 4 violating the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.

    The NFL originally suspended Barnett 4 one game after he pled guilty in March to two counts of disorderly conduct 4 his role in an incident at an Appleton nightclub last year.

    To appeal the original one-game suspension, which includes a one-game fine, Barnett had to travel to New York City to meet with NFL officials. Though the league dropped the suspension, it still fined him a one-week proration of his $2 million base salary. Players are paid once a week over 17 weeks, so he lost 1/17th of his salary, or $117,647.
    This brings up some interesting precedent for McKinnie.
    Barnett pled guilty (although to a much lessor charge than McKinnie) and he got the suspension repealed.
    McKinnie may get his charges dropped through the pre-trial diversion program.
    I am starting to think (disappointingly) that McKinnie will get off with a fine.

    Whats up with using 4 instead of for? Crazy packers need to let it go already.
    Not sure what exactly Barnett did or if he has a history, but from what I've heard McKinnie is guilty as hell, and he has a history. The love boat scandal I don't believe was a horrible offense(not like beating someone with a medal pole) but it was very high profile which the NFL doesn't like. I still expect 4 games, minimum.

    Good point about the history jmcdon00.
    I wasn't thinking about that.

    I actually do hope that McKinnie gets some kind of suspension. He needs to get his head out of his ass.

    Re: Packers Nick Barnett gets week 1 suspension repealed

    Here was Barnett's arrest BTW.

    http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080701/PKR01/307010015/1058

    Barnett is accused of knocking drinks from the hands of two women during an argument in the nightclub Wet, 344 W. College Ave., and throwing a cell phone belonging to one of the women against the wall, damaging the phone.

    In a separate alleged incident about 45 minutes later, Barnett again confronted one of the women, allegedly threw a drink in her face and knocked her to the floor. Barnett left the bar in the company of another Packers player, the complaint said.

    I don't, but I do hope next offseason we look at replacing him...

    Unless we can get a stud in here at LT, I hope we don't look into replacing McKinnie.
    He is a big part of that left side of the line whether you believe it or not...

    Ah yes... starting fights with women. Sounds like a class act.

    I'll take McKinney over this hack, at least he starts fight with (male) Bouncers.

    There are many LTs in the game that I would take over McKinnie.
    He's solid, but not worth the trouble.
