Default Goodell to fine teams for player misbehavior

ATLANTA (AP) - The NFL put more teeth in its personal conduct policy on Tuesday when commissioner Roger Goodell announced he would fine teams whose players were suspended for disciplinary reasons.

We want to continue to emphasize personal conduct and personal responsibility," he said at the end of a one-day league meeting. "One way to do it is to hold teams responsible for the conduct of their players.

Goodell instituted a tougher policy during the 2006 season, his first as commissioner, after a series of arrests, nine alone affecting the Cincinnati Bengals.

You will notice that teams will take a risk on a player with a "history" in hopes of a big payoff and then you see a team like the Bengals who seem to thrive on it, yet they are still terrible.

this is long overdue. the teams should take some responsibility for this. Players got so much money they dont even care but once money starts coming out of the owners pocket thats a whole nother story

My sentiments exactly. DUI by a player? Big problem. Impropriety by a HC that calls into question the integrity of the game and the league as a whole? No problem.

It's kind of funny how ol' Roger tries to be Robocop with people's offseason problems, but he can't even control cheating on his own field. What a maroon.
