Bryant McKinnie has been suspended (Star Tribune).
I feel that if the NFL is going to suspend a player for his off-the-field legal trouble, particularly before the player has been convicted of a crime, then the power to punish should not lie so narrowly with one person. There is far too much room for subjectivity when Roger Goodell alone can decide whom to suspend and for how many games, whose suspensions to reduce, whose appeals to accept or reject, when to declare suspensions, etc. This is an issue the players' union should take up: there should be a more fair and objective due process for punishing players.
I also feel that by emphasizing off-the-field conduct of players with suspensions, Roger Goodell has brought more negative attention to the issue without really solving the "problem."
I also personally feel that Roger Goodell is a prick, and I miss Paul Tagliabue.
