AB not to be put on nfl exempt list

Recommended Posts

At least Patriots fans cannot say “the world is still out to get us”, but knowing them, they’ll still annoy us with that. :)

that would set a precedent of getting players suspended or put on the exempt list when there isnt really any evidence here, just accusations.

Like when Big Ben was suspended while charges were dropped? NFL and Goodell have been inconsistent at best.

 

AB has Tyreek Hill to thank for a frame of reference lately.

If there were no charges brought (and just a civil lawsuit), the NFL has no precedent nor base grounds to use the exempt list until they complete their own investigation. For now, they have not acted.

There were two incidents w/Ben.  The one in Vegas  (2009) where there was only a civil suit brought, no charges The NFL did not act.

 

The second time (2010), it was reported to police, and the victim administered a sexual assault kit/exam at a hospital., and she had witnesses.  The victim later wrote to the prosecutors to not go forward with the case, feeling it would be too intrusive for her to be in the national spotlight during a trial. The DA stopped pursuit of the criminal charges and they were dropped. Yet Ben was still suspended 6 games for violation of the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. It was later reduced to 4 games on appeal.  It was more than just a civil suit in this case.

 

NFL seems (and can be) inconsistent, but not so much in this case, to me.

Ben's circumstances were different and Ben was SUSPENDED ... NOT put on the "Exempt List" (aka "paid leave").

 

As others have implied, to put AB on the exempt list is really a dangerous precedent because it would open the door for anyone to make a baseless accusation/civil suit with the intention of removing that player from a big game(s).

    • ...a big fat check the man is freaking awesome! Give this dude an extension already    come on we need some humor around here not much else to look forward to the rest of the season for the Colts that is.   Time to laugh with me 
    • Huh? The top 15 QB's statistically are all primarily pocket passing QB's. Mahomes, Watson, Wilson, Rodgers, Prescott, Wentz, while being mobile in the pocket, are not running QB's. Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are really the only 2 QB's used in actual running situations continuously.    Sorry, but there are no Lamar Jackson's in this draft and Hurts isn't the answer either. A) I don't want to see an offense rebuilt into something that isn't sustainable. Eventually LJ will have to sit his * in the pocket. B) Every time I see Hurts' name pop up I wonder if people have actually watched him. There is a reason he couldn't cut it at Bama, and got beat out by an actual passing QB. I don't think there are going to be many teams who are going to rebuild their offense for a guy who can't read a defense, nor progress beyond his first/second read before he's wanting to just take off running. Hurts wouldn't even be on my board just due to him not being a good passing QB.
    • Put me down for NOT being in the Hurts camp
    • Hurts doesn't even look like an NFL QB to me.  Maybe someone who could win games with a great defense, running game, and special teams.
