Default its getting laughable - come on Goodell

another day another guy not getting suspended. at some point this has become ridicuolus.

im not going to argue Ben being suspended because i do agree he should have been, 2 games max not 6 though.

Bengals escape again without having one of their guys suspended. Malaluga gets no suspension after pleading guilty to a DUI.

the guy is driving around drunk and could kill someone and gets nothing.

all credibility the Goodell was trying to get with his policy has got to be thrown out of the window at this point. its very clear he suspended Ben because of the media coverage. i guess being accused, but not charged of assaulting a 20 year old bar hopper is worse than pleading guilty to driving drunk.

i want this story of Ben being suspended to go away just as bad as the rest of you guys, but when you see stories of guys not getting suspended it just brings it right back to the fore front.

at this point i think the only thing Goodell can do to maintain any balance in these suspensions is to reduce Bens to 2 games to were it should have been and i dont want to hear that he would be showing favoritism to the Steelers by doing so. what about the favoritism of not suspending to Bengals or the Titans starting qb. i wouldnt call it favoritism i would call it fair.

How many games will a player be suspended for in the future when he gets a parking ticket?

Default Re: its getting laughable - come on Goodell

I was going to bring this up yesterday. But I thought it was more of a general league thing then a steeler thing. And thought it should be posted in the NFL Forum, and not here, but there is very little action in that forum. Anyways I to think it is BS cause by admitting that Rey did something very dangerous and egregious, and taking away TWO of his game checks, but not suspending him those actual two games is kinda suspecious. And trust me, this is not Rey's first real offence. He has been a disgrace for a while now. But i'm not going to compare him with Ben cause I'm getting tired of it, and it just makes me mad. So why bother ? Rey hasn't learned any lessons, and you'll be hearing from him again in a off-field incident again.

DUI is a mistake a bad choice, one most all of us have guilty of many times during our lives. I'm not saying it's ok, but not long ago it was an accepted choice with minimal ramifications. Comparing DUI to rape, guns, drugs, animal abuse, abuse of women is not on the same scale. That being said, multiple offenses probably should be dealt with more aggressively.

I just find it humorous that so many here think that they know all the facts. Can't it be assumed that Goodell know MUCH MUCH more than any of us do about all of these instances. To assume that Roger has some vendetta against Ben or the Steelers is assinine.

If Roger came down hard on Ben to prove that he's as hard on Caucasians as he is African-Americans, well so be it. It certainly doesn't mean that Ben was innocent. As another poster said, Ben still has his job & suffered no incarceration. Many of us would be fired & have a hard time finding another job for breaking our company's code of conduct policies. Whether we agree with the policies or not.

Yes but said company would have to PROVE that you broke any conduct rules. In Ben's case, where was that ever PROVEN ? And as for Ben's Innocence. ah yes it does. I mean there wasn't even an appearance of Inpropriety other than two different women claiming Ben did something. Neither claim was in a simular surrounding,,,even though Goodell said that they were. Neither case was simular...meanning that the first alledged one was over a year earlier, and NEVER reported at any time. Hell, if Ben goes into a Burger King, and some woman comes out a week later saying that after Ben left, when he was away from any cameras that are inside the restaurant, that he felt her breasts up..what ?..are you then gonna support another Goodell suspension ? No wonder you took offense at my " Nazi " comment. Cause it's CLEAR that you, as well as your father were probably members of the 3rd Reich!

Can you PROVE that Ben didn't break any conduct rules? Of course not.

And moron, if I were a member of the Third Reich, do you think I'd find your references offensive? You are truly clueless - I hope you grow up someday....oh yeah, I forgot, you've been around since the "real Nazis!"
