Aldon Smith Suspended For Nine Games 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Aug 29, 2014 8:35 pm

Alson Smith has been suspended for nine games by the NFL.

Smith will be allowed to remain around the San Francisco 49ers' facility during the suspension, which was very important to the franchise.

Smith already appealed the suspension and lost, making it final.

Smith's suspension is for four games for a violation of substance abuse policy and five games for personal-conduct.

This could be a blessing or a curse. I could only imagine how much his freshness would be just after midseason, and how well it could help this team. This is assuming 49ers can find a replacement and win at "division leading" force til then.

Maybe NBA players should start doing that instead of faking injuries, have a party weekend, then get mandatory time off.
With Trey Burke gone (only worth a 2021 2nd round pick, psh), I now apologize, I was foolish for believing in him and defending him as a point guard for Jazz. He was the biggest waste of draft pick.
