    Should teams loose draft picks for player misconduct?

    Interesting take. But if it happened the Bengals wouldn't have a draft pick for 3 years

    NFL should strip draft picks from rogue teams

    if Goodell is willing to take a hard line with NFL franchises regarding the willingness of too many of them to give problem players second chances.

    And third chances.

    And eighth chances.

    Put simply, the league should impose real and meaningful penalties on teams that roll the dice on guys who previously ran a tin cup over steel bars.

    I don't agree with it either.


    Punish the teams for team wrong-doings.

    Exactly.
    The only thing this would accomplish is getting players assassinated, imo.

    Re: Should teams loose draft picks for player misconduct?

    I agree that NFL players are adults and should be personally held responsible.
    But I don't want the NFL to become a bunch of punks like the NBA has.

    Suspending players doesn't seem to be having enough of an affect as the players continue to repeatedly screw-up.
    Becasue the have millions in the bank, they don't seem to care enough about losing a few game checks.

    Some real harsh penalties need to be given, ones that especially hurt the premeir players who get LOTS of press when they screw up.
    ESPN doesn't even notice a 3rd stringer getting in trouble.

    Let the players know:
    * No Pro Bowls for x number of years
    * Suspend for x number of future playoff games.
    Once tagged with this, teams will think twice about signing him.
    How would it have affected Allen's market value if any team signing him would know that he was already suspended for his next playoff game?
    * No HOF eligibility
    * Permanently, add x millions to player's salary cap, thus reducing the players marketability

    Players need to know that messing up isn't just going to hurt them now... it's going to hurt well into the future.

    Re: Should teams loose draft picks for player misconduct?

    I actually somewhat agree with the policy. But I think it should apply to those players that are at a certain level in the conduct policy. I think everyone deserves a second chance. But for a player like Pacman or Chris Henry who have well reached their limit of chances I say no. The league cannot totally deny them a chance to play but it can limit their options.
