    While not being criminally charged of anything?

    Why is there no outrage against the courts or law system for not locking this guy up?

    In no way do I support what he did.. but I dont see the correlation between what he did and how he makes a living.. I mean of course there is a personal conduct policy.. but this making up the rules as they go shit is not right..


    I mean what the fuck did they think happened in that elevator?

    I agree with the jist of what you're saying, but the NFL is not a democracy

    there's probably a clause in his contract that allowed them to cut him loose. he did nothing that isn't done on a daily basis and the only difference is that he's famous and he got caught.

    I don't think he should lose his job, either. She attacked him and he just defended himself.

    I think you should lose your job for saying that.

    I know you dont need a reason to get cut in the NFL.. but its should be the individual teams decision.. not the league.

    Its a trend that is very disturbing to me.. losing your job for doing something that is completely irrelevant to your said job. Now if he is convicted of a crime.. thats a different story.

    True. I wouldn't lose my job for that, but then again my company isn't banking on my public image either. Which is, in a way, part of his job. At least in their eyes.

    I agree man. People getting fired for posting stuff on FB is ridic to me. I just don't understand how work bleeds into someones personal life. Of course, my union brothers and sisters help protect me from that sort of thing for the most part :coffee:

    you know as well as i do it's about ratings and the NFL is a goddamned meat grinder. if you don't bring it, you're gone!

    the teams don't want a cancer or a stigma and the league doesn't want anything that would bring bad light to their tax-free, bottom line.

    at the end of the day, the league is a business. if you make your employer look bad, they will get rid of your ass.

    I love the jerkoffs that are making videos of themselves burning their ray rice jerseys.

    That's some crazy desperate for attention shit right there.
