The faux outrage while still shouting go Bills is delicious. I’m here for it. It’s ok guys, embrace the sickness. 

I will say that the Bills really have zero to do with watson or his situation other than all being NFL teams. It reads as if you are willing to throw out the baby with the bathwater. I definitely am not.

 

I hear you though. *shrugs*

Just 6 games is nuts. I have seen that many games for taking prescribed meds. Anyhow....what is the downfall of the NFL appealing this?

Downside (from the NFL’s perspective) is prolonging the agony of this story in the new cycle vs. washing their hands.

Last time I checked the Bills are part of the NFL. Supporting the bills directly feeds the NFL. This isn’t hard. 

yolo and I basically said the same thing. Now you are reading to me condescending. Come on man.

a retired judge for Watson

 

It was simply a recommendation, not a ruling.  A purely optics-driven exercise that, in the end, means absolutely nothing.

What faux outrage are you referring to? The judge made the decision as of now. What does she have to do with the Bills? The nfl hasn’t even responded yet on appeal.

 

How do you know it is faux?

Its extremely complicated. I’ve mulled this psychologically for years with the numerous shady things that have happened within the NFL. I’ve learned to accept the illness, some cope with it, others straight up deny it while knowingly or unknowingly support it, while others truly stand and take action ie Boycotting. I’m vehemently against what Watson and others have done, but I’m addicted to football. It is what it is.

Yes, now the people who HATED Goodell being the judge, jury and executioner are CLAMORING for Goodell to override his independent arbitrator to be the judge, jury and executioner. It’s better than Mike Florio’s birthday.

 

The NFL is an awesome case study of a judicial system sustained purely via outrage and public opinion.

Sorry, that was not my intentions. Apology if it made it feel like I was belittling you. I’m just trying to make people understand it’s all a sickness that many people don’t want to accept.

Optics.

 

This whole thing has been a sham from the get-go and it was going to be Goodell's decision all along.

 

The NFL is scummy.

 

 

I don't think the NFL is scummy.  I think it's a business trying to negotiate its challenges as best it can.  

 

Watson may not be a good guy.  But a grand jury declined to indict, and he certainly hasn't been convicted of anything so far.   Isn't the presumption of innocence an American value?     

 

Many companies let the legal system - and the experts who run it - judge personal-time behavior.  In other words, if there's no conviction, there are no consequences at work.  I applaud the NFL for going further but I wonder how much further they should go in cases like this.     

 

I'm torn on this one.  I'm really not sure what the right response should have been so I'm not going to criticize Robinson's or Goodell's.  In fact, I have to give them some credit.  While the legal system didn't punish Watson at all, the NFL will.

15 min of playing time missed for every assault.  Unbelievably low. 

Nice message sent. You can assault four women and only lose one game check and none of your signing bonus. Unreal.

Josh Gordon lost multiple seasons for alcohol. 

At this point they would be better off having no personal conduct policy. They can't seem to ever get it right. 

Goodell should at least double it to force the union to defend this scum of a person.

I mean, just don’t generalize. Many people have real disgust over the situation but it’s about Watson and his punishment. Doesn’t mean they won’t  watch the Bills or nfl. Maybe someone said that? But I doubt that’s a widespread opinion.

First it was the Alex Jones guy, now we got Bonnie Nettles over here talking about our collective sickness?

 

Are you wearing black Nikes?
