He has it pushed back until after your game. He's gambling with the NFL and winning so far. Makes me wonder if they don't feel confident in their evidence.
IF he gets suspended now, he will miss Rams game and all three play off games. He's banking on getting it pushed to next year's first four games, and letting himself keep playing while Bower is out.
Cannot disagree with the strategy. IF he is proven guilty, NFL really messed up and let themselves get PLAYED. If he's innocent, well good for him making it work.
