Baseless speculation

4 game suspension "likely"? Really? Likely?

My guess is 1 game, but that's also speculation and is not "likely".

Why should civilized people put up with this behavior. Throw this ghetto thug in jail and make sure he never plays football or reproduces! These entitled jocks make me sick! It's only a stupid game and it's not like these animals are contributing anything to western civilization!

I wonder if Seattle will consider Cedric Bension.Three 1000 seasons the last three years.Sounds like a no brainer.

The recent DUI charge is Lynch's first DUI involvement in his life. We have been told (by the media) that Lynch was over the legal limit a few nights ago, but I do not know yet by how much. NFL rules allows for a $50,000 fine for a first DUI offense unless there have been other behavior issues in the past. My understanding is a) that Lynch was found to have been holding a gun improperly (a misdemeanor) and b) he had a hit and run charge dismissed against him (he claims he didn't know his car bumped someone when inching along, supposedly hitting someone who was dancing in the street). Neither of the two previous incidents were alcohol-related and both are more than about 2 to 3 years old. However, Goddell seems to lean toward punishment, even without conviction.

I still say what Goodell did in the Saints case was justice. They deserve what they got & the team was lucky more of them didnt get suspended.

How can you hold a gun improperly? If he's hoilding it backwards just pull the trigger
