    Yes sir that could also been seen as detrimental especially if you got some drug action in there. But if it's just crushed up adderal and some cocktail waitresses and instagram models, then it's not so bad. That's pretty much innocent.

    Yep. Goodell will continue to have the power to be judge, jury, and executioner until the NFLPA changes that in some future CBA. I don't like Goodell one bit, but I fault the NFLPA rather than Goodell. He's simply exercising/abusing the power he was granted.

    This is yellow journalism at its finest. The dude first made these points completely out of context talking about fantasy football!!! Fielding questions about where he'd take Elliot in the fantasy draft. He made the suspension comment then and saw how much interest and crap it stirred up so now he's doubling down on those comments to enhance his relevance.

    He's a disgrace to his profession but alas it is more and more the norm these days. Gotta get the clicks!!!

    Good God this is really gonna happen isnt it? After all this time and no legal punishment from the law Zeke is going to be suspended. The NFL is a hot mess and they are going to keep seeing a drop in ratings because of their own foolishness.

    Wouldn't it be ironic of EE gets suspended for the 1st game against the Giants but so does Eli for memorabilia fiasco. Mara would flip.

    And you apparently love oversimplification.

    Powerful argument: I'm wrong because you said so.

    BTW, feel free to post the title and section of the bargaining agreement that "explicitly" states what you just claimed. Don't skirt it; if you know it "explicitly" says that, then you should be able to point to it.

    If you really think a private company can simply suspend an employee without pay for a certain period of time without valid basis or justification, then you're silly. They've got more standing terminating an at-will employee for no reason than they do to temporarily suspending without pay and no basis for doing so.

    They'll never suspend Eli. He's Mara's boy.

    Yet there are people on this board that think many here are whiny conspiracy theorists. That damn yacht got a hell of alot less coverage than Zekes balcony flashing. Id love to know the logic behind that.

    Why do you continue to lie and then insult when you get called on it.

    You said he said one thing and then posted him saying something entirely different.

    Show some maturity.

    Obviously, it varies by State and other factors. None of that changes that it is a sense of entitlement. Especially your original nonsense of requiring a conviction. How much evidence in the NFL do you need to know that is not the case? Drugs testing, Brady, Big Ben and countless others. Because the CBA gives the NFL the authority to do so. It also gives the players a right to an appeal.

    What I hate is that people feel they have a right to any job and that the employer shouldn't be able to decide when they don't want to continue that relationship.

    The oversimplifying is whining about there being no conviction as the standard.

    What are you blathering about?

    Post the title and section of the bargaining agreement that "explicitly" states what you claimed.

    I know we don't. Just posting in general. Not meant for anybody to respond. But it's weird they "found" something.

    If Zeke can get punished for an accumulation of things that makes the league look bad, I'd expect Jim Irsay to get a lifetime ban.

    I don't need to. It's common knowledge, especially after Brady, what authority Goodell has. But that is also meaningless to your original statement which you have gotten so far away from.

    It's typical around here. Someone says something, someone disagrees or points to a flaw or inaccuracy and so they start arguing completely new things to obfuscate what they originally said.

    Your statement was an opinion about what the standard should be for the NFL to discipline. I hate the mentality that is borne from. Laws, NFL policy, etc. are irrelevant to that mentality.
