    NFL won't punish teams for prior player acts

    [size=13pt]NFL won't punish teams for prior player acts[/size]
    by Alex Marvez FOXSports.com

    FOXSports.com has learned new league rules resulting in fines for clubs whose players are suspended for off-field violations begin June 1. But the NFL is pardoning franchises whose players' legal problems occurred before then.

    That is good news for a team like the Minnesota Vikings, which has a player (left tackle Bryant McKinnie) facing serious criminal charges following a February arrest.

    The moves add teeth to the personal conduct policy Goodell introduced in April 2007.

    haha... can't wait for the first team to be fined/penalized... we'll see how bad this thing is..
    Goodell doesn't fuck around

    He doesn't always do it right either. The suspension of Wade Wilson was still bullshit IMO.

    OR the NON-suspension of Bill Belichick for blatantly disregarding the memo that 31 other head coaches followed to the letter in Week 1 of last season.

    Re: NFL won't punish teams for prior player acts

    So after June 1, if Pacman, who is technically a Cowboy, even though not eligible to play, screws up again.
    The Cowgirls get fined?

    Ohhh please Pac go find a strip club!
    Your in Texas now, so why not pack some heat too.
    I'm sure the redneck Texan's will be nice and polite, when you take all the best girls for table dances.

    I hope the Cowpies lead the league in fines.

    How can you unequivocally say that?
    :
    Remember, it was the Jets who blew the whistle on the Pats, not the league.

    Now if you said that Goodell needs to go after them on the IR practicing issue, I can agree with you.
    ;D

    ONE team out of 32 got caught, therefore they were blatantly disregarding the memo...31 other teams did NOT get caught, therefore, there is NO PROOF that they were doing it that week, therefore IN THE EYES OF THE NFL AND ANY OTHER RATIONAL PERSON, those other 31 teams were following the memo to the letter.
    So, unless you have PROOF that some other team disregarded the memo in Week 1, you got bubkes.

    What does blowing the whistle on them have to do with anything? It doesn't matter how he found out they were cheating, just that he found out.

    I'll bet right now also with Kraft & Goodell being so close, Belichick won't get punished for making the players on the IR practice either.

    If you thought Chilly’s been strict about the off-field conduct of his players…well, you ain’t seen nothing yet....
