It’s not compelling for felon to go to jail and there’s no telling, maybe P.J. Hairston will be back on the court, instead of in court soon(They said Thomas was maintaining a dwelling for selling)

This could be good news for P.J. Hairston(Dudley HS/North Carolina) since there will be no jail time for ‘Fats’ Hayden on these charges…..Hope to see P.J. ready to play soon…The longer he is out, the easier it would be for them(UNC/NCAA) to hold him out the entire season, with the dark cloud of NCAA restrictions/penalties in mind….

    He broke the rules, I hope he never plays another game

  • reaching said,

    Why would you think whether or not this guy goes to jail has anything to do with Hairston’s future? Hairston is facing losing his eligibility over impermissible benefits and has nothing to do with criminal activity.

    The more trouble or time that ‘Fats’ is facing, the worse it makes it look on P.J.

    Hard to erase the ‘Guilty by Association’ boundaries that always exsist in these type of cases…

    You will be known by the company you keep and if that company is in the news for the wrong reasons, then you will pay a price for it, the extent remains to be seen…

    Benefits are for those that earned them and not to be taken illegally…..

    It all goes back to who you are hanging around with and if it is looking bad for them, before it is over, it will end up turning out bad for you too…

    LONG breakdown, but this is a deep subject….

    Hope it all turns it OK for PJ and that he is back playing ball soon….On that basketball court is where his efforts can be best served….

    He does not deserve to play another minute of collegiate basketball and neither does Leslie McDonald. They did the same things that Marvin Austin, Gregg Little and Robert Quinn did and they were declared permanently ineligible.Why have rules and fail to enforce them in all situations?
