I understand the leagues “conduct” policy, and the league isn’t the only with such a policy. Many professions have a similar policy. With that said, I have much difficulty understanding what is within the purview of the organization and what is not. IMO it’s a slippery slope. The criminal legal system refused to pickup charges on DW, however the civil actions remain in play (I know that’s shocking; almost as shocking as the quarter billion he became worth over night). I know the allegations are substantial, but that shouldn’t be confused with substantiated. I don’t believe the league should take any further action against him. I think if anything slap him with an 8 game suspension and considered it time served from last year. I am not a DW fan per se, but I am a fan of justice and equality as defined by our constitution. Our legal system isn’t perfect, and this imperfection is equally shared by the defense and prosecutorial bodies IMO. I would rather free 10 guilty men than imprison 1 that was not guilty. It is so easy to make ish up. Conventional wisdom says where there is smoke there is fire, but my experience in life has shown me it’s actually not very hard to create fake smoke in the absence of real fire. The rules and burden of proof are there for a reason. Perfect, no. But is it the best system on the planet? I tend to answer yes to that question.
They haven't done anything yet but all these insider reports have been saying for awhile now they expect he very likely will get suspended.
There's a big difference between enough evidence to convince the NFL he violated their conduct policy, and enough to warrant a trial.
when I saw this thread had been bumped I actually assumed the NFL had announced suspension or no suspension wasn't expecting it to be about something else because I'd been reading the decision would probably come down this week.
