No, its not a season long suspension. Its a one year suspension. 365 days.
wait until the appeal decision is announced....
The decision on Josh Gordon has not been made either. For whatever reason, it is taking forever.
"I believe" clearly sounds like guessing to me.
Ok well thats not what you were talking about. You referenced the same thing i did, which is the current suspension. Which takes him to this day a year from now if it starts now.
The appeal is what it pending, not the suspension. So there has been no decision.
Do you just like to argue for the sake of argument? Find someone else.
That was my thinking....It's not like the league has suspended him in the first place. Have Brent sign his unretirement papers and get this thing started...and then let's see where this goes.
The topic of this thread is Brent returning to the team, league action, suspension, and yada. Keep it on that. The staff is not going to police one more thread about drunk driving and your opinion on it. You can start and comment on that in the Off Topic or Rant Zone. And posts not related to the topic will be deleted.
Still don't understand all the fuss over a JAG.
Is this a serious post?
The league's problem is the sheer volume and complexity of these issues.
Beating girlfriends, bomb threats in airports, multiple drug busts, intoxicated manslaughter, owners in illegal business deals, owners with substance addictions, countless players with PED violations and drug issues.....
The Commissioner is like a prison ward. This is all Goodell is doing most days.
By Broaddus' own reply, he's simply stating what he believes to be the case about when the decision concerning Brent may be rendered. What he believes is merely that. It really doesn't necessarily mean he has any inside scoop what is transpiring in the privacy of Goodell's office. In fact, I'd be surprised if he did. We'll all find out within the commish's time schedule, not Broaddus'.
That's simply not true. The NFL as a whole is not even at the average rate of offenses. Teams are so large and there are so many teams and every event is covered infinitely by media but the truth is the league is fairly well behaved.
Guys who have acted out do get punished and repeat offenders have very short shelf lives in this league.
The issues you describe have taken place over years not months.
Anyone that works in HR will tell you most businesses face these issues to some extent. Drug and alcohol addiction are very real.
Family violence is hardly unheard of. The simple fact is our legal rights mean most of those things do not come to light publicly.
