If you will just somehow grasp that the CONDUCT POLICY has nothing to do with the legal system you will sleep easier. Yes, in most cases it is tied to it, but it is NOT the final judgement. An organization such as the NFL, NASCAR or pick many companies out there, has a right to set its own standards. These players are NOT employees, they are independant contractors. The Titans (nor any other team) have any player that is an employee. Your arguement is as weak as a player trying to sue a team because he got cut. Charges or convictions in the legal system can add to a players suspension, and in the Vick case, he had already been suspended from preseason, so there was no reason for Goodell to step in and add further sanctions, as I am sure he will later, if he feels the legal system didn't do enough. Why should Goodell get in the middle of all this right now, then possibly have to change what he said? Goodell could also risk bringing on prejudice.....if he suspended Vick for three years, the judge might figure that since he can't play, he should get three years in jail. I can think of many reasons for the NFL to wait on this decision, but not one good reason to act in a rush. Not only does Goodell need to wait to see what the courts do, but he also has to address other charges that Vick avoided by taking a plea agreement...gambling being the biggest. The bottom line is the policy is there to punish players for not conducting themselves as per NFL standards. It does NOT have to be used, if the courts are going to do the same or worse to a player, but it is in place where it can be used if need be. Why you expect things to be so very simple, and ignore the complex nature of some of these problems is beyond me.
