    Apparently knocking your wife out cold, and then dragging her unconsciousness body out of an elevator is only half as bad as smoking a little bit of weed.

    Way to lay the hammer, NFL. Rice hit his wife harder than the NFL hit him.

    Way to go Goodell.

    You had a chance to nip this in the bud by bringing the hammer down on a guy who beat his fiancé unconscious, then drag her limp body onto an elevator... while on camera.

    You whiffed.

    So apparently, according to Goodell, doing supposed harm to one's own body in the form of substance abuse is far more grievous than doing intentional harm to another in the form of physical abuse??

    All in all, Goodell performance as commissioner leaves a lot to be desired, to put it nicely, but to us all here at Patsfans, this observation is old hat.

    She was not his wife at the time. If she had been, he would have been given a warning and would have to take a dragging management class.;)

    Imagine what he's gonna hear in the trenches after a tackle? I suspect he's due to a rough season.

    Somebody refresh my aging memory with the # of games Ray Lewis was suspended for actions as accessory after the fact to murder.

    Wow. Are the NFL's disciplinary policies completely arbitrary, or just mostly arbitrary?

    Substance abuse sanctions are fixed by negotiations with the NFLPA. Other misconduct sanctions, as here, are not.

    That's a weak penalty that's about all I have to say about that.

    Great news, if he's found guilty on all counts Hernandez should only get 4 games.

    Goodell would rather go with 3, one for each body, but he wants to send a clear message by getting tough with AH.

    True, but it doesn't change the fact of what other posters have said. The man knocked his wife out, was arrested for assault, and got less a penalty than someone taking a drug. It just doesn't make sense.
