NFL Personnel Believe Irsay Is Facing Suspension Of 6-8 Games, $1M Fine
Published June 10, 2014
HIT WHERE IT HURTS: ESPN.com's Jeffri Chadiha wrote if Goodell "wants to send a message" to Irsay, he "shouldn't be thinking solely about a steep fine or a suspension." Goodell also should be "eyeing taking away draft picks, which are the only currency that has real value when it comes to disciplining wealthy men in team sports." The minute Goodell "snatched a second-round pick or even a couple of mid-round selections from somebody as powerful as Irsay, the entire league would take notice." His credibility also "wouldn't be nearly as questionable as it's become in the wake of this entire episode" (ESPN.com, 6/9).
