All persons associated with the NFL are required to avoid “conduct detrimental to the integrity
of and public confidence in the National Football League.” This requirement applies to
players, coaches, other team employees, owners, game officials and all others privileged to
work in the National Football League.
For many years, it has been well understood that rules promoting lawful, ethical, and
responsible conduct serve the interests of the League, its players, and fans. Illegal or
irresponsible conduct does more than simply tarnish the offender. It puts innocent people at
risk, sullies the reputation of others involved in the game, and undermines public
respect and support for the NFL.
Standard of Conduct:
While criminal activity is clearly outside the scope of permissible conduct, and persons
who engage in criminal activity will be subject to discipline, the standard of conduct for
persons employed in the NFL is considerably higher. It is not enough simply to avoid
being found guilty of a crime. Instead, as an employee of the NFL or a member club,
you are held to a higher standard and expected to conduct yourself in a way that is
responsible, promotes the values upon which the League is based, and is lawful.
Persons who fail to live up to this standard of conduct are guilty of conduct detrimental
and subject to discipline, even where the conduct itself does not result in conviction of a
Discipline may be imposed in any of the following circumstances:
Criminal offenses including, but not limited to, those involving: the use or
threat of violence; domestic violence and other forms of partner abuse; theft
and other property crimes; sex offenses; obstruction or resisting arrest;
disorderly conduct; fraud; racketeering; and money laundering;;
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
So yeah, the NFL heard the idiots and made their players sign an agreement that has nothing to do with their job. GG.
Just because you are fine with an unrepentant child abuser playing for your team does not mean that's normal. Your opinion is whacked out. You should understand that everyone else cares about the behavior of players on their team and the NFL. This goes for fans and employees of the NFL.
No one wants to cheer for or work with such a disgusting and vile creature.
Freedom of association. Why do you support racist business policy under the guise of FoA, but you ignore it for real issues? You claim being black should be grounds for denial of employment and service, but being a child abuser should not be grounds for denial of employment? I'd really like to see you rectify that. Please, explain to us why being black is grounds to deny employment but being a child abuser is not.

Yeah, I know.The vast majority of people are not okay letting child abuse slide and continuing to support such a player or team. The NFL has enacted policy to address such.
No, it doesn't. Players want to win games and not waste their time and primes on losing seasons. If a QB has a good running back behind him and good receivers his numbers will improve and his team will win more games. If however he is an emotional dip**** that doesn't like meanies then I suppose he will demand his star running back be suspended and do worse because of it. That is what is called a stupid ass being emotional.Just because you are fine with an unrepentant child abuser playing for your team does not mean that's normal. Your opinion is whacked out.

I never said the NFL did anything wrong. What I said is that they were motivated to act because people like you are completely incapable of separating your emotion from the issue. If the consumer base of the NFL wasn't emotional dimbulbs more than likely Peterson would still be running every Sunday. Hell, maybe the Vikings would get a few more wins because of it too.Freedom of association. Why do you support racist business policy under the guise of FoA, but you ignore it for real issues?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
