    I honestly think that was a BS move by a rookie judge trying to make a name for herself.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I agree and I think she'll shorten it to something less than 10 days too.

    I do question how Chad was dressed. No suit, no sportcoat, no tie and shirt untucked. I think that showed more disrespect to the court than his antics. After seeing the video his demeanor was serious and subdued the whole time.

    This is typical Chad. Always the goofball and always seeking attention. Guess what, Chad? This is a courtroom and you are facing time in jail. Time to grow up and act like an adult... or face jail. I applaud the judge. This is not about a 15 yard penalty or a fine by Goodell. Court (CRIMINAL COURT) is serious stuff. Chad has A.D.D. or is just stupid. And being stupid in court might get you more than a 15 yard penalty. But in his not so smart fashion he figured a plea deal between his attorney and the prosecutor was a done deal and he could do something CUTE. Wrong! He will have some time to grow up. And hopefully he will mature and learn not to assault other people while sitting in jail.

    BTW... I used to be a huge Chad fan. No agenda against him. But stupid is as stupid does.

    Funny that you liked Chad when he was scoring td's for your team, now he's just another goofball who deserves to be in jail because he wasn't acting mature enough for you and this awful woman behind the bench. I'm sure it's not because he's black though.

    That is an awfully big leap to make.

    Really? I mean, REALLY?

    To my knowledge he wasn't hitting women when he was playing in Cincinnati. But hey, feel free to defend him and show us all how non-racist you are. I'm sure the women of the board appreciate it.

    I agree that it should be cut it down to 10 days or even just 1 day. Yeah, it's important to take things seriously when you're in court. He slipped up and jumped the gun. Does that really call for 30 days? Was he really trying to disrespect the judge? It didn't look like it to me. And while he wasn't in a suit it's not like he was in sweats either. If he's in jail for more than a week it'll be a mistake. Say what you want about Chad but I bet there's alot of people that deserve his spot in jail more than he does for slapping his lawyers butt.

    Justice should be blind. It shouldn't matter if you wear an Armani suit or a short sleeve shirt. The judge should be able to see past that. Now if you want to talk about juries and how a well dressed defendant does as opposed to a scrub that is a different story.

    I wonder if this judge would have had a problem if Chad patted his attorney on his back. If this judge felt strongly enough that Chad's actions were inappropriate she could have held him in contempt of court. She did not and went on a power trip which is scary when you consider there are other people whose livelihoods may be based upon her decisions.

    My whole problem is that disrespect shouldn't be punishable by law, except for in the cases where you are warned you will be held in contempt and then continue. That clearly didn't happen here. He didn't say or do anything directed toward the judge.
