Why not leave it in the hands of the team?

If a particular team shows a constant disregard for character (see the Bengals) then expect them to get the full force of negative publicly. Eventually fans will get fed up and stop spending money on the teams. Also expect a poor team unity and less discpline on the field which will directly lead to more losses.

If I open up a TV factory tomorrow and hire all ex-cons to do my labor to save on costs, nobody is going to care. It doesn't matter if all of them are free on bond or not. I could even hire OJ as my COO. It is my company and the state isn't going to crack down on me for having a "troubled work force". I'll certainly suffer through with unreliable workers but it's my choice and it's my company to run.

I say that to make me feel better about myself? I've driven drunk 3 times, and each time I wake up in the morning and think, why the **** did I just do that.

Which is why I said I would GUESS that you wouldn't get fired. I probably should have added unless you work with a job that driving or something very much life it.

Try to think of one person that drinks that hasn't driven drunk, good luck finding one. Just think back to not only college, but also look at the percentage of people at any given bar or party(especially new years) and tell me that just about everyone hasn't driven drunk.
I know plenty of people that haven't driven drunk...

I fully support this suspension. I believe the NFL players should be held to higher standards than the "common man" because of the attention they get and the fact that they are role models for many people. A DUI is a serious offense and how does it look if Rhodes gets a DUI and nothing happens to him? Alcohol is a drug and driving over the legal limit is what I would consider abuse.

I'm sure a lawyer will try to fight this one for Rhodes but it won't work. The league will win this case and a new precedent will be set that players can be suspended for recieving a DUI.

Does it really matter? I mean, you could probably put LT behind that line and still have a below average running game.

I'd say you're probably in the minority in that regard.
