Sources: Jim Irsay Suspension Likely To Be Three Or Four Games, With Max $500,000 Fine
Published July 31, 2014
SET THE STANDARD: CBS Sports Network's Tony Luftman said three or four games is "not enough" and noted he agrees with NFLPA President Eric Winston's stance on the situation. Luftman: "He says that owners should be held to a higher standard. ... I'd like to see eight games because of the message that it sends. It has to be a strong message." Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin added, "I'm very comfortable with four games. I think these punishments should be applied uniformly across the board." But CBS Sports Network's Jim Rome replied, "There's a certain level of empathy here. He's dealing with severe addiction issues. What if it were a player that did the exact same thing? Would the player be looking at three to four games?" ("Rome," CBSSN, 7/29).
