NFL needs to force him into retirement for his own good. NFLPA and the league should put in a provision for these types of cases in next CBA.

Sounds like some pretty good movement with the CBA. Hopefully both sides can close the deal.

Only the top seed will get a bye next season and one extra team makes the Playoffs

Sounds like it will pass

I also don't see anyone saying Garrett was being absolved of anything. But like others have stated numerous times his story obviously does not add up.
Why aren't his teammates, his organization, Steelers players who were on the field, the NFLPA, etc. backing him up? (rhetorical)
He could've been quiet upon his official reinstatement but instead he has doubled down on an obvious lie, with a TV interview.
I honestly have a hard time believing ANYONE can believe his obvious lie.
It's entirely possible to believe that Rudolph is a jerk who started a fight he couldn't finish AND acknowledge that Garrett shouldn't have swung at his head with his helmet while still believing Rudolph got off too easy. Sure, Garrett's actions were more egregious than Rudolph's, but what Rudolph did was certainly worse than Okunjobi and Pouncey, yet they got suspended and he didn't.

Not defending Garrett, but Rudolph got a slap on the wrist when he started the damn fight.

A few of his teammates did say that Garrett told them that he heard the slur after the incident when the media had asked players after Garrett’s private meeting with the league was leaked. Then Dorsey just recently said that Garrett did inform him and the team after the game about it. It’s just that the team didn’t want people to make excuses for Garrett at the time, and Myles knew he was wrong.

Also of note, has been thought that someone involved in the incident was mike’d up for the game. For what’s it worth. I think Garrett was the one, but unsure.

In a car, going across a border. I hope the guy likes prison cells because that is were he will be staying for there next several years of his life more then likely. He should get a decade for just being that dumb, really what would make a person think they would get away with this?

Not to mention Mexican weed, seriously you just wrecked your life for 150 worthless pounds of garbage weed lol what a true dope!

Well, I like the ambition, if nothing else. Go big or go home.

For what it's worth, he fell short of Nate Newton's 175 and 213 pounds of weed bust. Newton got busted the second time while out on bail from the first. In the end, he got 30 months in prison, which was probably light for the crimes.

Robinson could end up getting quite a lot more time unless his lawyers can find some technicality here.

Oh great, NFL playoffs going to be as watered down as the NBA and NHL.
I guess if this appeases they PA, avoids a 17game schedule and expedites a new CBA...Iím happy.
Hopefully Howie has a few trade partners lined up for Jeffery before the ink dries.

I agree it's better then a 17 game season, what I would really like to see is Thursdays game being moved to a Monday double header.

I'll state the obvious. Seventeen is an odd number. That means there cannot be an equal number of home and away games. One theory is teams might alternate between 8 and 9 home games each year.

But my theory is even uglier. I think the NFL wants this so they can schedule more shitty neutral site games in other cities, or other countries, like more of those idiotic London games, games in Mexico or Canada, etc. Places where nobody outside of a few American ex-pats give a crap about American football. Goodell is obsessed with spreading the sport abroad, despite no evidence those people will ever like this game.

My view on the whole is that pro sports are damaged by expanded playoffs, and nearly all could use contraction.

I have always loathed the divisional round of MLB. They play a 162 game regular season. That should matter. If I had it my way I'd fold the league back into four divisions and return to the LDS/WS format. It shouldn't come down to 1 game Wild Card play in games and 5 game divisional rounds.

The NBA is the most lopsided league with the fewest upsets. Who seriously benefits from a shitty team like Orlando (I'm a Magic fan) playing Milwaukee in the first round? The over under on Magic wins would be 0.5 tops in a 7 game series. I'd disband divisions and put the top 4 teams in each conference in the playoffs. That would pretty much guarantee a team would need a respectable 50~ wins for the postseason, instead of trash .500 teams making it. It would also avoid (to some degree), good teams putting it on cruise control en route to the playoffs.

In the NFL, I'd probably either keep it at 6 teams, or adjust (maybe contract) divisions so there are only 4 in the playoffs from each conference with no Wild Card round.
