    In that case, good for the NFL. But given how often we see this sort of problem I think the NFL needs to get a bit more serious about it. We see way too much of this kind of problem. Call a cab. Go to a hotel. Sleep it off. Don't do stuff that will make the NFL look bad.

    Im not saying its ok just cuz hes human but just cuz hes richer or a celebrity doesnt make him immune to making the same mistakes that alot of other average joe makes. We just hear about him but there are alot of others that do it as well. We dont hear about all the other dui's they make every night.

    All true. And certainly they are human. And humans make mistakes. But NFL players have resources that most people don't. Even on a rookie contract you can afford to call a cab and crash at a nearby hotel for the night. You are certainly correct that most people that drive when they they have been drinking don't get caught. And most people that drive when they have been drinking don't crash their cars. And most of the ones that do crash their cars don't kill anyone. But sometimes they do. And when you have the name recognition and financial resources of an NFL player you're expected to live up to a somewhat higher standard than John Q Public. The NFL needs to make sure that NFL players "Get it".

    What is the going rate on suspensions for a DUI? 2 weeks? I dont follow non-KC NFL news, so I have no idea what kind of suspension they will levy for this.
    That's the argument I think matters. It's not only what the league does, but what the team will do as well. After what happened with Bowe last year, and now this, won't be surprised if the team hands down a worse punishment than the league does.

    For what it is worth, according to arrowheadpride, typical punishments for first time DUI is a fine of 2 weeks pay. No suspension. Goodell can always decide enough is enough and start levying 1 game suspensions to up the ante and hope that bigger punishment will deter these guys from drunk driving.

    If he only gets a fine, then I definitely can see the team handing him a bigger fine. I dont see them sitting him out for any set amount of time.
