It's Doing Enough


There's not much more that the league or its teams can or should do. Coaches like to say they can't watch their players 24 hours a day, and they're right. The league has made it very clear that it won't tolerate criminal behavior by players. It also did its best to educate players about how to be careful and safe, about how to try to avoid being a victim of violent crime, in the aftermath of Sean Taylor's death last year. The rest is up to the players to be smart about the situations into which they put themselves. They're grown men.

People have to recgonize, no matter what you believe the NFL is a job. Just like your job with a higher payout. This means your employer is not your mother. Actions against players (employees) on behavior is only warrented when it violates the contract (employee agreement), violation against the ideals ad goals of the NFL (employer), or violate the law (employers choice to fire). Think of yourself at your job.
