NFL Reportedly Investigating Burress

The New York Daily News reported today that the NFL is investigating two domestic incidents during the summer in which the wife of New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress reportedly had temporary restraining orders issued against him, although both were dismissed in state court.

The incidents and Burress's failure to report them to the league may have put him in violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, the Daily News reported.

Richard Berthelsen, the interim executive director of the NFL Players Association, told New York-area reporters during a visit to Giants Stadium on Monday that he was not aware of any discussion of disciplinary action against Burress for violating the conduct policy, however.

The players' union and the league have agreed to a settlement of Burress's dispute with the Giants, who announced last week they were suspending the wide receiver for one game until Oct. 6 for violating a team rule. Burress had an unexcused absence from the team eight days ago. Under the terms of the settlement, Burress will miss Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks but will have his amount of lost pay reduced from $235,294 to $117,647.

Er, "wife beater"? All we know is that she tried to have a TRO put on him. How do you go from that to "beating"?

Not to say that he's a nice guy, but come on -- let's stick to the facts, kids.

I don't care if Plax beats his wife. Let her deal with that. I only care if he plays good football. I'm fine with taking his money away if he breaks the team's rules, but don't punish the team by suspending him.

You guys are all retarded, HE BEAT HIS WIFE and you feel bad for him? Why, because he's making 110,000 less than his millions that he will make this year? He should be in jail...

If you weren't so ignorant and could step outside the box for just one second you would understand. A good analogy would be if your boss said, "you miss a day of work you dont get paid". And the next week you ditched work and didn't for warn anyone. Then when you get back to work the following day you are without a paycheck...Simple, follow the rules or do not play the game. Plaxico, Yes is a very talented athlete and should be payed and played. But if anyone doenst follow simple guidelines they should be punished.

Plaxico has a god given gift, he is a great athlete. Let him play football. Stay out of his personal life. I have watched him with the Steelers and now with the Giants. The Giants are lucky to have such a fine athlete on their team.

This has nothing to do with how Plaxico plays football. I've been a fan since he first came to the Steelers and now I watch him play for the Giants. Leave him alone personally and let him play ball. Giants are lucky to have such a talented wide receiver. Stay out of his personal life.

Plaxico Burress is one of the best receivers in the NFL. I really don't want to see him turn into a good for nothing jerk. I love the Giants, and Plaxico but if he lets the money go to his head there could be serious problems with the Giants offense.

Oh $@T who am I going to throw to?

Maybe if he would set better examples in his life he wouldnt have so many problems. Just to clear things up for those of you that dont understand how life works, nobody is getting into Plaxicos life. He just has had a hard time following directions. You see when the team puts rules in place that you are supposed to follow and you dont do that then you will be punished for that. Im glad that the Giants stand for something. Long time Giants fan!!!!!!

People give you money and they own you.
Hey, it's on the players i believe the NFL are way to far in to people lives that work with them.
This should be mention in the next agreement.

Getting Paid not to play - now that's a sweet deal.
