That is the big difference. Most of the other continue to deny they did anything bad by using the old they didn't know it was in their energy drink or some such crap

Thank you. Exactly how I felt at the beginning. The rehab should have at least counted toward Aldon's suspension/discipline by the league. Goodell actually may do something right? WOW
Yes, I find that totally surprising. It definitely doesn't match his history at all.
I'm curious. Is he the first player to handle it this way? Has anyone else ever checked themselves into rehab or any other sort of self-discipline after a high profile incident?
Not under Goodell.
