Besides if Goodell wants to be taken seriously with this new policy he will have to do something and not just sit back on one of his 'stars'
I didn't remember that.
Yeah.. enough is enough. Do I think he deserves a year's suspension? No. 3 or 4 games, plus a buttload of fines? Absolutely.
Heck... I'd have no problem with a Zero-tolerance policy for Alcohol. If you wanna drink, do it at home or take a cab. You get busted for public drunkeness... You lose playing time. Get caught drunk driving... or turning keys over to a drunk driver, you lose MORE playing time and BIGGER fines.
This is Goodell's moment of truth. Here is a situation that, if he plays, could cause a team to go to the SB. If he doesn't, the team may end up in 3rd place in thier division.
Alright Goodell... Let's see what nature gave you... A Spine of an Oak tree, or a spine of a French politician.
