well sir, many jobs if you get a DUI you are FIRED from your job. if you got a felony would you still be employed in your profession?
how many here would be fired for a felony?
But this is the NFL. He isn't a doctor or lawyer. He doesn't have an ethical obligation. He hits people for a living.
If his team wants to release him, so be it.
that is the problem. the team needs to win, will the broncos suspend manning for anything short of f**king elways wife? that is why the NFL needs to step in, and make it mandatory upon a conviction or plea bargain. a misdemeanor DUI/DWI is 8 games and felony DUI is 1 year.
make it extreme. so only the dumbest of the dumb would do it.
Yes, a felony DUI should be a year. But I think the original post was any DUI is a year suspension.
If the risk of dying isn't enough to deter a player from doing it, tht wont either.
You can't hold players to such a harsh standard and not the rest of the population. So an agent or trainer gets a DUI and they are ok?
The NFLs job is not to set the legal standard for crimes. That is society's job. Punish EVERYONE with a year in jail. Not only a player
