Reach New Labor Agreement
CONDUCT UNBECOMING: San Diego Union-Tribune writer Brent Schrotenboer Tuesday noted NFL players have been arrested more than 400 times since '00, but he said the arrests have not "impacted business at all." Fox Business' Stuart Varney: "Here's what I hear from a lot of people: It doesn't matter what you've done off the field, if you win on the field you're okay." Meanwhile, Goodell said the NFL's personal conduct policy has "impacted the rate of arrests." Goodell: "Before that policy was instituted, we had 79 arrests in the previous year. Year-over-year since then it's gone down 20%. The crackdown has made a difference" (Fox Business, 8/18).
