...to owners.

Waiting to find full text of letter, but highlights I can pick up through Twitter:

- Says he did not get it right with Ray Rice
- New policy is 6 games for first offense, lifetime ban for second

So the Ray Rice Fallout continues with a new domestic violence policy. Six games for 1st offense, lifetime ban for 2nd.

Key phrase in new domestic violence policy sent to NFL owners: "These disciplinary consequences apply to all NFL personnel." ALL personnel.


So apparently knocking your fiancee unconscious and dragging her out of a casino elevator counts as 1/3 of a domestic violence offense.

Not to name posters here, but one in particular does not believe Rice assaulted his gf. No proof.

:twisted:

Wouldn't it be funny if Art 2 smacked Mrs. Art 2 on camera.

I personally think this is all nonsense, there should be no "conduct policy", it should be like any other sports league, I don't see the NBA, NHL or MLB suspending players for DUI or domestic violence. I see them suspending guys for PEDS, or IN GAME fights or violence (Except the NHL which encourages violence in games), but not for crimes committed outside of game or work time.

1. NFL is bigger and gets more publicity
2. NFL reaches a broader base
3. NFL needs to/wants expand; hockey, basketball, and baseball are already worldwide.
4. Just because others aren't doing it, doesn't mean the NFL is wrong

NFL domestic violence ban isn't really "lifetime." It's indefinite, players able to apply for reinstatement after 1 year. Like Josh Gordon.
