Pacman Jones does not want to be known as Pacman Jones anymore. In case you didn’t know, his actual name is Adam Jones and that is what he wants to be known as from now on. The reason for the sudden change of heart is the fact that he is on a new team, in a new city with the Dallas Cowboys and he is trying to turn over a new leaf.
Although Jones has not been fully reinstated by the NFL for the 2008 season, the Dallas Cowboys cornerback is continuing to integrate himself with the team and in the community.
Part of the rehabilitation of a battered image is dropping the name that was once cute but now serves as a reminder of all the questionable decisions Jones has made.
“It’s really just a lot of negativity behind it. It’s time for a change,” Jones said. “I’m doing everything to make sure I’m all right as a person, mentally and emotionally.”
The negativity isn’t around the name Pacman, it’s around you. Whether or not he changes his name, a rose is still a rose by any other name. If Pacman shapes up then he won’t have to worry about the media calling him that anymore but he is allowing one person to still call him Pacman, and it’s someone who he should be answering to anyway.
“My mom is going to call me Pacman,” Jones said. “That is what it is. I can’t change that.”
She gave him the nickname so it’s cool but I am disappointed that he doesn’t want everyone to call him Pacman anymore. It was one of the best nicknames in sports history…. oh well.
