All you need to know about the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy
“Discipline may be imposed in any of the following circumstances:
- [Various criminal offenses]
- [Some other stuff]
- Conduct that imposes inherent danger to the safety and well being of another person”
Seriously, everything that’s wrong with the NFL can be found in its Personal Conduct policy. The league sees itself as the national religion, transcending common concerns of law and operating according to its own moral standards. In truth it is distinguished from a neighborhood cockfight only by its scale and hypocrisy.
Did you know? The league office is a non-profit association which in 2013 paid $0 in income tax but $45 million dollars in salary and bonus to its moronic commissioner. Individual teams also benefit enormously from publicly-funded stadiums and tax breaks. Maybe this why the conduct policy is frantically trying to preserve “public confidence in the National Football League.”
