Colts' Irsay Enters Treatment Facility, Daughter To Run The Team In His Absence
Published March 19, 2014
CALL TO ACTION: THE MMQB's Peter King wrote of potential discipline to be doled out by Goodell, "I don’t think this is going to be a tough call. ... History says it won’t be, even though Goodell has never had to discipline an owner for substance abuse or driving while impaired in his eight years on the job." Goodell’s history "shows he’s short on sacred cows," and he "knows everyone is watching the Irsay case." King: "He knows he’s going to have to be compassionate but tough on Irsay. I think he will be. ... I think a fine plus a suspension from any team-related activities will likely be Goodell’s discipline if the charges against Irsay are true. And if true, the discipline will certainly be justified" (MMQB.SI.com, 3/18). Fox' Mike Pereira said of Goodell, “It is not new territory for him to punish an owner, and I think he is going to have to do that here” (“Fox Football Daily,” FS1, 3/18).
