Should The NFL Shun Guys Like Terrell Pryor Who Leave the NCAA Due to Violations?

Posted by J Dan in NFL Rules, Opinion, Player Profile

The main reason I say these players should be allowed in is because there’s no way the NFL would apply standards fairly when it comes to NCAA rulings. For example, players who are penalized by the NCAA AFTER entering the NFL do not face punishment by the NFL. Unfortunately, the NFL is considering changing that fact. But until they do, punishing only the players who received more “timely” punishment by the NCAA is unfair.

Secondly, the NCAA isn’t consistent with its own investigations and punishments. By all accounts, NCAA violations, including the ones Pryor was suspended for, are not uncommon. They are, however, spottily investigated. Basing NFL policy on the decisions of an unreliable governing body is heading down the wrong path. It’s not to say that the NCAA should be expected to find every violator, but the instances in which they “discover” violations their record of penalties is inconsistent.

NFL Lockout Day 132: Players To Owners “F**K YO COUCH, Buy Another One You Rich Muthaf*ckas!”"

Posted by J Dan in NFL Rules, Players

I haven’t been blogging on the lockout, but I figured yesterday’s CBA vote drama was worth a post.

NFL Quietly Reducing or Reversing Many Illegal Hit Fines

Posted by J Dan in AFC North, Brandon Meriweather, DeSean Jackson, Dunta Robinson, James Harrison, NFL Rules, Pittsburgh Steelers

The NFLPA has been appealing all the fines that have been levied against players for hits. And, quietly, the NFL has been steadily reversing or reducing many of the penalties. To me, this could be one of the biggest stories of the season and a sign that the NFL isn’t …
