Re: Chris Henry suspended for 8 games
While I agree with the commish on these suspensions something needs to be done about legal problems as a whole in football. Tank Johnson should not have been allowed to play football at all last year, let alone the super bowl. I am sick and tired of seing teams and NFL turn their back on a domestic violence dispute while punish a guy who blows .02 over the legal limit (Deltha). I do not like seing a roided up Merriman play in the pro bowl in the same year that he was suspended for steiroids. If I were the commish I would have tacked on 2 more games for Merriman for lying about how the steroids got into his system.
I find it amusing that a guy can get 4 games for smoking a joint (I have never do so my self) but a guy who beats his wife is allowed to play perhaps the next day. If I were a parent of had a friend who got nabbed for DUI or got in trouble for failing a drug test I would be upset at him but I would be far more upset if he beat his wife or fired a gun in public or a variety of other felonies that NFL players have commited but walked free.
