    Ug, please make an example of this clown, Goodell. Permaban him from the NFL. So sick of these scumbags getting chance after chance after chance. You make millions of dollars, how hard is it to follow the friggin law?

    Is there any ability to have a case heard before pronouncing sentence anymore?

    I absolutely think that there needs to be an investigation before any punishment is handed down, but a conviction is definitely not a requirement for discipline. The former is based on a "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard, which is far far higher than what would be required for the league or team. In my opinion a violent felony conviction is certainly sufficient for being thrown out of the league, but it is far from necessary.

    I have no problem with a few games suspension for lesser transgressions, without conviction, if there is sufficient evidence, since I know many times charges are pled down or victims are paid off. But the previous poster calling for a lifetime ban before all the facts come out is a little far out there.

    I agree with you here, I should have said, "if he's proven guilty or there is evidence beyond reasonable doubt". I feel Goodell should ban him for life if it's true, not without having a chance to defend himself. 2 arrests within a month or so is not a good sign for his innocence, however.

    Foster's story is one of the saddest of all these young kids screwing up .He
    over came so much, and now appears to be pissing it all away.
