for domestic violence/conduct detrimental to the league.

Jones is furious.


Aren't you the same clown who supported the ginger haired stooge dropping the hammer on Brady for allegedly letting the air out of footballs. "He's doing a great job", right?

Yeah, thought that was you………..karma Gerrah, karma…………

Apparently JJ doesn't like it when his ox is gored….

He's going to appeal it, but if the NFL drops it from 6 to 4, they're telling the world they view allegedly letting the air out of a football and smacking around women both equal a 4 game suspension.

Nope, not going to happen, he's going to sit for 6 games and it's going to cost him a boatload of dough.

Being suspended for actions that the Columbus Ohio PD didn't charge him with….."citing conflicting and inconsistent information"…… I guess the NFL has better investigators than does a cities Police Department does…..

And yes, I know that the NFL has a lower threshold of proof than our Criminal Law system does, but if there is no crime, there should be no time…..

And for the record, I'm not a Dallas or Ohio State fan…I just believe fair is fair……

Brady was suspended four games after the NFL spent a small fortune and found nothing; no hard evidence, no smoking gun, nothing, Wells concluded that "Brady was generally aware of something being done to the footballs"…………"generally aware" got him four games.

This is the NFL we live with today thanks to that ginger haired stooge who is nothing more than a puppet of the owners.

The whole league is a giant tire fire.

And just like tire fires, certain elements stink….

Actually, you have to realize the NFL is a business not a sport. And as such, the owners of the business have the right to impose any rules they wish(as long as they aren't illegal) on their employees. And since the employees know the employment rules and accept them in exchange for salary they have no right to complain. Just like working for McD's or Sears, if you don't like the rules quit.

Great post; it truly is no longer a sport, it's license to print money for the owners and that's about it.

Very well said.

The NFL is no longer the Wild Wild West, they will drop the hammer on anyone who tarnishes the brand, the image, the product, the shield.

Not because what they did is bad, but it's bad for business and it's a business, not a sport.

As long as we understand that, the rest follows.

Gee – I said that 'business not sport' thing in relation
to Colin K.

Little to no response…

Double G Supporting Member of TMP19 Aug 2017 8:16 a.m. PST

I missed that Ed, where did you say it?

As far as Colin K; if he was any good, someone would have signed him, he's not being shunned due to his protest, he's being shunned because he sucks as a QB.

What did I hear all last year about Colin K? "He lost the locker room."
