As it turns out, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers didn’t pull the plug on pursuing Pacman Jones because he might have had trouble getting into Canada, but because of Pacman’s recent performance on USTREAM.
According to Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, the Tuesday night video, which Jones announced in his most recent Twitter entry, prompted the Blue Bombers to drop Pacman.
“Don’t throw no dollars at me,” Jones said while shirtless and flexing. “If you want to throw somethin’ at me, throw
me an NFL contract, man.”
Friesen describes the video as “so
disjointed you couldn’t help but wonder if the guy was actually
jointed, if you know what I mean.” (We like these Canadian writers.)
“I’ve got a clause in my contract, when I get a call from an
NFL team I can go over,” Jones said. “I actually got two calls today, so
if they tell me tomorrow that Pacman’s back, that’d be a bummer for all
my Winnipeg fans.”
Friesen points out that, when the video began, Jones announced he’ll be playing in the UFL.
“Go to the UFL and do my thing and get ready for a playoff run in the NFL, you know what I’m sayin’?” Pacman said.
Someone then called Pacman and told him that he actually would be playing for the CFL, not the UFL.
Now, he’s playing for the NoFL, and as always he has only one person to blame.
