    Note Nick Fairly Arrested

    It seems the thug is holding true to form.

    I'm extremely surprised that it took this long for either Fairley or Newton to get arrested while playing in the NFL. The first of many I'm sure.

    Second-degree marijuana possession is a misdemeanor in Alabama. If that makes him a thug than I guess Steve Jobs was really hardcore.

    Agrees. I'm no fan of Fairly or marijuana, but I'd hardly call him a thug for being in possession of pot.

    Thanks for the post. Young men get in trouble from time to time. I know I did.

    no kidding, legality aside I don't think it's any worse than drinking beer and when you consider our past three presidents have smoked pot or worse I just don't think you can argue it's that big a deal. Not a fan of Fairly but I think it's important to be fair in how we characterize players and former players for marijuana arrests. Undisciplined and poor judgment - yes. Thug - definitely no

    There are plenty of other reasons to call him a thug. Misdemeanor possession of weed is probably not one of them.

    Re: Nick Fairly Arrested

    Fairley and Suh are a perfect match. They will take thugery to new height in Motown.

    Pot possession does not make him a thug though. His play on the field speaks for itself. The boogs have had much worse thugs on that team. The felonious 4 comes to mind.

    Just a word of warning, Don't get to excited over another AU player legal problem. We've had our share as well.

    exactly. and we will have more in the future as well. Which is why i dont speak negative on things such as this even if it's Aubarn. as long as college football has 18-23 year old players, you will always have a few run in's with the law

    Until the law is changed...
    Unlawful Possession of Marijuana is against the law
    .
    What any of us think, does not matter in a court of law.

    I do not think that Nick Fairley is a 'Thug' for smoking weed,
    I think he earned the title on the football field.

    I don't make excuses for our players, and I'm not accepting excuses for players at other Universities... ALSO...
    I don't care if you smoke MJ...
    It's still against the law to possess Marijuana in the State of Alabama.
