    That would be a public relations nightmare like in the 80’s when multiple players are caught regularly abusing recreational drugs (and I mean things like opioids, not something harmless like marijuana).
    According to this logic, they couldn’t punish Ray Rice. Or Greg Hardy. We all saw the PR nightmare that turned out to be when they gave Rice only 2 games.
    Well, I agree they should make things more consistent.
    Yeah that’ll never work in a million years. Probably wouldn’t even be legal.

    If we assume the Chiefs’ one and only priority is winning (which is a safe assumption)...

    I wouldn’t trade him right now. His value is lower than his talent merits because of the recent unpleasantness. I’d keep him for the season. And Tyreek should refuse a new deal because, as above, his value is lower than his talent merits right now. I expect he will stay in KC and no new deal will come about this season.

    Agree. Teams should not be able to sign suspended players.

    I threw 4 in there because it isn’t fair to have a team do what is right and allow another team to punish them for it.

    If players are caught, by law enforcement, doing illegal drugs, and arrested, then then can be punished. I don’t care if they are smoking pot in March.

    As if we needed any further proof Hlll was the beneficiary of a very select version of NFL (ahem) scrutiny and the only thing about NFL discipline that's consistent is it's inconsistency...

    The Chiefs are currently on the NFL's grace list, probably because they saw all the excitement that team generated among fans and don't want to have that taken away.

    On the other hand, now that the Seahawks no longer generate that excitement:

    The inconsistency is astounding. Could Goodell be any worse at handing these punishments out?

    This kind of stupidity:

    NFL suspends Seahawks’ Jarran Reed six games


    is why I take any decision not to suspend as a win.

    The best way to make our players unsuspendable would be for Kraft to sell part of the team to actress Rooney Mara.

    It just gives more ammo to respond to Patriots haters who say that they are "cheaters". To Chiefs, Ravens, Giants, Cowboys and Browns fans: your team are a bunch of wife/child/girlfriend-beaters (I am sure I am missing a few).

    One upside from this bungled non-suspension of Hill (the man should have gotten 4 games for just telling his wife to be terrified of him too) is that now the Chiefs will be allocating A LOT of their future cap $$$ to him. One more misstep and the Chiefs will be using millions of cap space on a suspended guy....and thus unable to add more weapons.

    Interesting proposition. But remember that Lisa Friel is Giants fan.

    Perhaps not. The word on the street is the Chiefs want to put some "specific language" into his contract. Most likely to protect them by allowing them to cut them without too much penalty.

    Apologies if this was already posted but another example of inconsistent punishment being handed out by The Ginger Jerkoff.

    Two years later. Not saying he is innocent but was never charged or prosecuted but the NFL conducted a thorough investigation and found him guilty.

    Except that, as much as I hate to say it, they can (and will) play the "murderer" card.

    PR is totally what it’s all about.

    But should they punish people for crimes if they don’t get convicted?
    Of course NOW they’ve put themselves in a position where they have tied the morality of the league to disciplining players in order to pander to public sentiment.
    If they had, all along, taken the position that they cannot discipline a player for committing a crime unless they are convicted of it, they would have consistency and an answer to anyone who complained. (We have to respect everyone’s rights and cannot discipline any one for a crime without a conviction.)
    Teams could them make moral judgments on whether they wanted a player on their team based upon suspicion or non-prosecuted cases.
    Of course the hardest thing to do is unring the bell, particularly when the ring tone is stupidity.
