Aldon Smith

SUSPENDED 9 GAMES

For Hellraising Behavior

The 49ers will be without superstar linebacker Aldon Smith for the first 9 games of the season -- because the NFL has just suspended #99 for raising hell off the field.

The NFL announced the penalty moments ago -- saying Smith violated the league's substance abuse and personal conduct policy.

The league was not specific about which incidents Smith is being punished for (he's been in trouble a lot lately) ... but it's likely the move is tied to Smith's recent plea deal in Santa Clara, CA. 

As we previously reported, Smith was sentenced to 12 days in jail in a case involving a DUI (from 2013) and weapons charges (from 2012).

He was also arrested at LAX earlier this year for yelling "bomb" in the airport -- but officials ultimately decided not to prosecute Smith for that.

TMZ and your stupid headlines?! Hellraising?! Really? How about Rice knocking out his woman and dragging out if an elevator?! That's more hell raising than a DUI and gun charges that were dropped to misdemeanors. I guess hitting a tree is 4.5 times more worse than hitting a woman. #SMH

They should not name a certain number of games to miss...he should not be allowed to play until he can at least read at the level of a 9th grade white student.

Ray rice only gets 2 games, smith gets 9 and josh Gordon the whole season for smoking weed. There is something wrong with the commissioner and it's time for him to go.

It is actually 14 games if you count the 5 he missed last year while he was in rehab. At least he is allowed to train at the facilities so the coaches can keep an eye on him. If the team babysits him maybe he won't get into any more trouble and he can learn from his mistakes.
