Of course the code of conduct should apply equally across the board. But, as the poster above pointed out, in this case, there was no way that was going to happen, for the reasons he cited.

If you or any other Steelers fans thought different, you just set yourselve's up for disappointment. This kind of thing happens everyday around the world in some capacity or another. It's not fair or right, but it's the reality of the world today.

unfortunately, sir, you are correct.
Teams like the Steelers and Raiders, who have "bad-guy" images and are not in bed with the league office will come out on the losing side all the time.
Teams like the Patriots and Cowboys, and players like Favre, Manning, Brady will always win out in these types of things. Sad but true.
I don't have any faith that the rest of the NFL owners would push to force Goodell out (which they should do..)

Having said that, is anyone really surprised by this? It's Brett Favre. He's one of the greatest players in the history of the game. Did you really think Goodell would come down that hard on him... in his last year... with one game left?
Glad to hear someone else come forward if you don't play with Manning or Brady in yhe NFL's opinion you don't count.

So if they found they couldn't prove he broke the workplace policy, he sure as hell broke the player conduct policy. If you can suspend ben for showing his **** in a club, you should be able to suspend brett for showing his **** via phone. NFL is a f'n joke

His logic is that Ben was a "repeat offender" - whereas Farve is just a "discreet sexter".

I don't think Ben deserved to be suspended, though I'm glad he was, he seems to be working a bit harder this year, and I haven't heard anything about him being an asshole off the field, seemed last year he was a total assholes to fans week after week.

I don't think Favre deserve to be suspsed since he's most likely gonna retire, and why fine him if he wont learn his lesson because he wont be in the NFL ? and suppose he was comming back, why does he deserve to be suspended because Ben was... Maybe Goodell wants to admit his mistake and not make it again with Favre... especially, since he didn't do anything illegal or against NFL conduct policy rules.

Goodell still is stupid and I hope he gets kidnapped and forced to stare at Favre's weiner
