In the NFL Running People Over is Totally Cool


I don’t understand the NFL, last year if you were busted for jaywalking you could expect Roger Goodell on your door the next day with a 4 game suspension in hand. This off-season, Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch RUNS OVER A WOMEN WITH HIS CAR and the league has no problem with it.

Now, I do think that Goodell went overboard last year in being the new sheriff and trying to flex his muscle but based on the actions last season by the NFL commissioner’s office this seems like something they would want to do something about.

Goodell spoke to the press saying that because Lynch pleaded guilty to traffic violation, there wasn’t a violation of the league’s personal conduct policy. So, the league minds if your hanging out at a strip club or driving drunk, but so long as you plead guilty to RUNNING OVER SOMEONE, that’s fine.  Of course, Goodell doesn’t seem to think lying to the police is also a violation of the personal conduct policy, because initially Lynch denied he was even in the car and said it was driven by a friend of his.

I simply don’t understand what is going on in the NFL offices these days.
