NFL looks stupid AGAIN!!

Recommended Posts

They suspend the Seahawks DT Reed for 6 games even though there's no proof that he battered anyone, but the NFL found him guilty. But Hill gets nothing even though battered women seldom testify against their abusers especially with support on the line. I don't know about Reed's reputation, but Hill's was dark to begin with. Roger Goodall has the power to suspend anyone, and even if the courts turned it over the NFL would save face. But now the NFL looks like clowns again. Brady gets 4 games but a guy that breaks a 3 year old arm and batters a pregnant women gets nothing..

Not sure about the facts of any of these cases, but the NFL is treading in pretty dangerous waters by having a personal conduct policy that passes judgment on an employee's private life. 

 

I assume Brady's transgression was something personal that he did in the capacity as an NFL player, and not something in his personal life. 

 

But I agree, the NFL looks stupid....and will look stupid more ties than not, IMO, for even taking on the responsibility to judge private life activities in the first place.

Obviously the NFL doesn't think he broke the kid's arm. And the issue with him and the woman happened well before he entered the NFL.

 

Why did this need to be a new thread? We have two threads on Hill already.

I think a lot of Brady's suspension was due to the attempt at a cover up.

If its the deflate gate thing we're talking about, his how he conducted himself and the cover up were in the capacity of an NFL player. 

 

To me there is a huge distinction between personal conduct as a player and personal conduct as just another citizen.

    • The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.
    • Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone. 
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/50448708   Looks like he's not given up on getting a gig in then NFL, but acting like this is getting to endear him to organisations. I can understand that he might not agree with the terms of the workout, but you've got to handle it more professionally than this.    Shame, I really do think he has talent. 
    • Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice.         Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.          We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.         I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.
    • What is Cam's "questionable behavior"? Serious question.
