Star Receiver Suspended

green385 Star Receiver Suspended

University of Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green has been suspended for four games because he sold his jersey from last year’s bowl game. The NCAA’s student athleter reinstatement committee ruled Green was ineligible for violating rules regarding agent benefits. Green reportedly sold his jersey from the Independence Bowl to an individual who meets the NCAA definition of an agent. The player later repaid the value of the jersey to charity, and he was held out of last week’s season-opening win over Louisiana Lafayette due to the controversy. He will also miss this Saturday’s contest at South Carolina, the September 18th home game against Arkansas, and the Sept. 25th matchup at Mississippi State. The school is appealing the decision. Green is one of the top returning players in the country, after catching 53 passes for 808 yards and six touchdowns last season. In 2008, he caught a freshman school-record 56 passes for the Bulldogs.

    I am a strong fan of the Georgia Bulldogs, I personally do not think that AJ should sit out that many games. I think he has learned his lesson by holding him out the game against Louisiana. So be leanient on him and let him play Saturday against S.C.
