The latest bizarre action by the NFL league office had them issuing a one game suspension for violating the leagues policy on hits to the head and kneck area- then recinding it almost to the point of nil when you go from $423,000 down to $50,0000 after the intial league ruling.

On the other end their have been situations over the last 3-4 years when players complained of the amounts and suspensions as being abusive to the powers of the league to which the response was that 'the system' decides what you pay by the number of times you are in violation, therefore abuse to one player or another cannot occur.

My question to all this is how can the league (right or wrong) have a system in place where they even consider a $423,000 penalty with suspension based on 3rd violation protocol, and then pull it back to $50,000 with no suspension as the other option?

This doesn't even include all of the different type of incidents- on field and off- that have created such a large spectrum for punishment and amounts of punishment to the point where nobody knows what their punishment will be for a similar offense in a union setting.

The fact that the NFL is a competitive sport requires the league to operate in a totally blind and objective manner when it comes to actions that help to decide the outcome of games. It won't be perfect, but atleast the league office should try:
