And these clowns are an embarrassment to the league. The legal system doesn't punish these guys properly due to their high profile and ability to hire ridiculous lawyers. The employer coming down on them is the only way they may wake up because our justice system certainly isn't doing the job. NFL has a major PR problem already, and these players acting like fools only makes it worse. Is there a major league with a worse rep when it comes to crime (regardless if true or not)?

the NFL has a brand to live up to, it doesn't hurt you hear about their players getting in trouble regularly

they have the right to drop whatever hammer they want on Sheldon

It has the most players and highest profile...The overwhelming majority of NFL players are beyond model citizens

And that integrity of the shield is a bunch of baloney..nobody really gives a damn, as long as the games are entertaining...just have set guidelines for punishment and stick to them.

UFC has a terrible reputation. Real Sports went over it recently on HBO.

The NFL should do what it can to protect it's brand. You may want consistency and frankly I agree, but to say that people don't care that the players are murderers/rapists/wife beaters/felons is short-sighted. I mentioned UFC earlier and it's image issues, those same issues could be as widespread for the NFL as it is now for that league if the NFL doesn't stay on top of it and gives the impression that it tolerates it.

NFL and NBA go back and forth over bad rep. Although I do believe a part of it has to do with racism

I have felt that with the NBA but not the NFL (shrug)

But I'm sure there are some underlying biases and agendas

I don't think the issue is as widespread around the NFL as you seem to think it is in regards to bad behavior. Do you have any data supporting your view?

Yeah it's definitely worse in the NBA. But I've noticed it more lately in the NFL now that's their is more black QB's. I mean Kaep was called a thug because he had tattoos and dressed like a high schooler

Very true.

 

NBA has worked overtime to come out from under that (completely unfair) reputation though.  And all the stars are golden boys now and they've done a great job of marketing that—so props to them.  

 

Of course the Manning/Big Ben types are never going to be called "thugs" no matter what they do.   And there's plenty of racism involved in the criticism of many athletes.  But with that said the NFL does have serious off-the-field behavior problem that they need to get control of imo.

Right, and I'm with you on that.

I do agree there's some undercurrent of race/class bigotry when it comes to these players and their representation in the media. Most of these stories seem to slant a particular way that I can't put words to, something inherently inescapable about the coverage. An ugly, "here we go again" aura.
