    Lol what does that have to do with your job compared to an NFL player's job.

    The NFL is a multi-billion dollar industry.

    Whether it abides by your (and my) moral standards is beside the point.

    NFL players get paid millions of dollars for a reason; as in, their skills are more noteworthy (thus less replaceable) than Joe Shmoe's typing speed.

    Because they're not the same jobs. Weed and coke were acceptable when I was a stockbroker trainee. Drinking on the job was acceptable when I worked in sales. In the music industry drugs are always presented to visiting DJ's and many business meetings end with some type of substance.

    See above response for why football can't be compared to other jobs.

    supply and demand

    its what it boils down to.

    Don't agree with what they get paid? Don't watch it and convince everyone else to do the same.

    NPPL is a national league and they don't make big money.

    can still do a compare/contrast IMO

    I rip on players all the time. The fact that I could do no better ever, unless we are talking about RB or C, does not mean I cannot criticize.

    and the players have no problems comparing their chosen career with 'regular' jobs - when it suits them that is.

    I agree, that it is fair to criticize players but I don't get wrapped up in pay. We pretty much control their pay, if they want to admit it or not.

    I do think it is fair to say that Harrison should not be going after Goodell as much as he does. Every place I work, that has unions, will still have no problem putting you on the street once you start bad mouthing your CEO. It is a bad business practice. Goodell wants to keep the shield clean, by punishing the bounty program, and Harrison is basically saying he supports the bounty program. Conflict of interest, guy should be fired, I have no idea how powerful the NFLPA is, but obviously more powerful than we know.

    All I know, is that Harrison and Vilma both suck hard core. Vilma just happens to be living off of a reputation that died about 4 years ago. If he wasn't being suspended, he might have been cut anyway.

    Mostly because Hockey understood that when someone hits someone else, they take a risk too since there are regulations for things.

    Football lets players barely strap on bad helmets against guys who ask for the best helmet and synch it tightest.

    When those two collide, one pays a deep price and one barely pays a price. You could guess who is defender and who is offensive player there.

    I don't really have a problem with either side.

    Goodell is trying to preserve the game and protect the shield and all that crap. On the other hand, the NFL tries to make its money off the big hits, intense pep talks, and the like. They cash out on the big hits and the intensity, then turn around and fine/punish a guy for it. Same thing with the individuality thing. They hype and cash out on the personalities, then fine the guys for celebrating, wearing different socks, etc.

    Also, having your appeal heard by the guy that made the decision is ridiculous.
