Good News: No Jail for Letroy Guion

Letroy Guion

Defensive tackle Letroy Guion will avoid jail time.

Guion, who was arrested for felony drug possession last month, has agreed to a deferred prosecution agreement according to Rob Demovsky. The deal will result in probation for Guion, but he won’t serve any time, which will allow him to resume his NFL career in 2015.

That is, providing NFL commissioner and one-man justice squad Roger Goodell doesn’t suspend Guion for the entire season.

We fully suspect an NFL suspension is forthcoming. The only question is, how many games will Guion get?

Meanwhile, the plea agreement gets Guion closer to rejoining the Packers. Guion will be a free agent next week, but it’s been almost a foregone conclusion that he would return to Green Bay so long as he wasn’t doing time.

The Packers approached Guion about a contract extension during the season. They’ve also stood by him since the arrest and have maintained their desire to re-sign him.

It’s doubtful the NFL suspension would stand in the way of the Packers re-signing Guion. If/when he’s suspended, he’ll most likely be suspended without pay, so that time period won’t cost the Packers anything.

    Give the man his contract ! His arrest most likely gave the packers all the leverage in the world on him, 2 YR/ $4M. Lol.

    The comments are closed for the peterson article. Funny thing is at the top of the page of that article is a link that says: “Good news: No Jail time for Guion” Seems a little hypocritical. What Peterson did was far worse, but don’t you think that someone deserves a second chance after the proper punishment? Why is it that the Vikings meeting face-to-face with their star player is considered “ass-clownery”? Also, that article had nothing substantial in it other than saying the Vikings organization is garbage. Why not put something substantive in the article? An opinion. A reason why the Vikings should kick this guy to the curb. A well thought out article of why the Vikings shouldn’t even give him the time of day and should send him to the worst team possible that gives a decent amount in return.

    No, that would require some thought and a valid opinion. Instead that writer decides to spew butt-hole porridge onto a website and make us all dumber for it. I apologize to packers fans that had to read that. Also excuse my language before when I said “butt-hole porridge.” I apologize for the profanity.

    Just my two cents. Write somethings that has some substance or opinion or at least something better than the drivel that you wrote. Thanks

      Pease porridge hot,
      Pease porridge cold,
      Pease porridge in the pot,
      Nine days, er, months old.

      Some like it hot.
      Some like it cold.
      Some like it in the pot,
      Nine days, er, months old.

    Big difference between AP and LG. The former sent one of his multitude of offspring to the hospital, the latter cashed a check, transported an unloaded licensed firearm in a locked case, and had intoxicants commonly used by southern African Americans. One harmed another human, the other didn’t.

    Carl: you do bring up a question I have had for sometime about Peterson. My father use to whip me with sticks, however I never did receive the kind of marks Peterson’s son exhibited. I wonder if Peterson’s son received second chances prior having to endure the punishment. How many chances does a young child deserve? I would believe considerably more than a grown man.

    Sometimes what returns to a person for the actions they take on or against the weak or helpless are by design not as generous as the acts they performed on those less fortunate. So maybe Peterson does not deserve an easy second chance?

  6. Carl Gerbschmidt March 4, 2015

    I want to thank you to for your responses to my comments. For being critical of what I said. Both of you exhibited more critical thinking than the person who wrote the Peterson article.

    Howard, I was moreso concerned with the fact that the Peterson article said nothing substantial other than the Vikings franchise is full of “ass-clownery.”

    Whether or not Peterson deserves a second chance what he did was incredibly horrible and maybe he doesn’t deserve a second chance. However I would argue that the NFL is full of bad people and a precedent has been set to allow back felons and bad people. So that shouldn’t change now just because social media exists. I don’t make the rules, I just have seen to many other players be given second chances to not allow peterson to come back.

    But that still strays away from my original point that the Peterson article had no other purpose than to pour “butt-hole porridge” on the franchise that is the Minnesota Vikings. A cogent article could be written that backs up everything you two have said and I would say, “That is a well written article, and even though I disagree and think Peterson deserves a second chance I respect the message and agree that good points are being presented.”

    However the Peterson article at hand did nothing of that. I also made it very clear that there was a big difference between what Guion did and what Peterson did. However I found Mr. Neckbeards comment about how “southern African Americans” use marijuana commonly a bit borderline and offensive. I am a Northern European White American and I enjoy the weed, race has nothing to do with it.

      The Vikings franchise being full of ass clownery is a GIVEN among Packer fans.

      as i am sure that the cannabis poisoning enjoys the brain damage that it inflicts on you, and all other habitual users of this drug. if you don’t believe me, get a copy of the latest book by Wm. Bennett, giving the massive statistical results that are coming in from many long term scientific studies.

      1. Carl Gerbschmidt March 5, 2015

        Can you write cogent sentences?

        You can think what you want about my habits, but my point was that the commenter shouldn’t assume that pot is for southern black gentleman. That seems a little short sighted.

        I will enjoy my brain damage.

    Also, Mr. Beard, Peterson did not send his son to the hospital. The small boy’s mother took him to a scheduled doctors appointment a week after the incident and the doctor noticed the marks.

    To clarify, that doesn’t make the act any less bad, merely trying to present the facts and not a misunderstood version of the facts.

    1. PF4L March 5, 2015

      It makes it worse as the boys mother knew about the boys wounds, and did……nothing.

      Gotta keep that NFL money train rollin down the track.

    Carl, you seem new around here so let me clarify some things. This is TOTALPACKERS and we HATE the effin Vikings. If you are expecting deep thoughts about the Vikings, you have done dare hitched your wagon to the wrong horse.
    That article had one purpose only- to humor Packer fans by calling the Viking organization names and mock their dysfunction. Period.
    Also, the comments for that article are not closed. Not sure where you got that idea.
    Regarding Letroy Guion, good news. I expected the possession deal would be pled down to a misdemeanor, but I thought the gun charge would be problematic. Apparently, Florida isn’t as strict with their gun laws as some other states.
    I anticipate a 2-4 game suspension that could be halved on appeal. No big deal.

    I am not a Viking, I am a human.

    I am merely urging critical thinking and writing that has content.

    I saw no humor or attempts at humor in that article.

    Wow…Packers brass breaking with Christian tradition here and giving a chance to re-sign a talented player with an imperfect off field background!

    1. Carl Gerbschmidt March 5, 2015

      Who is trying to say that Guion is talented?

  11. PF4L March 5, 2015

    Well….They need a nose tackle.
