He did everything that the NFL told him to do, and still wasn't reinstated, that is the gripe with Goddell. I think everybody understands what Odell did wrong, and a lot of us were very bitter about it, but enough is enough, give him a chance to prove he has turned his live around. I like what one of his teammates said on Bengals.com. He needs to be with the team where they view him as a son, brother, and friend... Compare his offenses to Pacman Jones and Tank Johnson and tell me why he deserves more punishment than they have gotten so far... Its like being told by your parents to do something then after you complete the task you are punished like you never completed the task in the first place. Its hypocritical actions like that we protest.
After all, what better publicity can the NFL get than showing that a program to clean up the NFL and helping players is a success. Instead it makes it look like the NFL doesn't even trust its on policies of rehabilitation.
