I was listening to "the herd" on espnradio about an hour ago and he was talking about John Clayton reporting from Indy that Roger Goodell, Gene Upshaw and several others have been considering a "3 strikes and you're out" rule for the NFL.

There's alot to discuss and decide on yet but if it happens this could go a long way to helping the NFL keep it's overall good reputation as a sports business and uphold all the great tradition that's been built for so long. The main thing being discussed now is what exactly constitutes a strike against you. There's alot of gray areas to decide on but overall I think it would be really good for our league to implement.

Would they give out compensatory picks to those teams whose rosters are decimated by the courts? :smashbengals: :rofl:

I would be all for this! I'm sure the Bengals are too although this means they could lose some players especially if they go retroactive with this new plan!

Did they give any other details? For example, if there name is brought up in a homicide case does that count as a strike? Or do they have to be charged?

I haven't seen any specifics, but I would hope theyhave to be actually charged.

They were talking about that and what exactly would be considered a strike against you. Examples like, do you have to be convicted of something before it's a strike, or do strikes count even if you're just charged...

at least it would free up some cap room for them...:bluelol:

It's a shame they even have to consider somehting like this, with the amount of money these guys make you would think they would have enough brains to keep out of trouble.:dunno: Hell they could hire someone to get in trouble for them...:lol:

I think the NFL should just make a flat out if you're arrested 3 times on any combination of any serious crimes---Drugs, assault, shootings, brandishing firearms, public disturbances and even DUI's then you're gone.
No Questions Asked and No Appeals To Be Made-You're History in the NFL
A Player Conduct Death Penalty.

In order for these idiots to "Get It" the NFL has to hit them where it hurts and that's in there wallets.
Make the possibility of taking away there careers and losing millions and millions of dollars a reality..........that's something even the most clueless jerk in the league could understand.

The first example should be made with Pacman Jones.
Make him the poster child of what happens when you decide to act like a Jack-*** off the field.

Right on !

It's not a right to work for the NFL and be a player of a team, it's a privilege that 99.9999999999% of America will never get the chance to do so taking it lightly by acting like a complete idiot off the field shouldn't be tolerated.

lol...I was just going to say that Cincy los e their team...but you beat me to it!
Back to the subject though. I think the NFL does need to put some sort of rule in place and they need to enforce it. It has gotten out of hand and is giving the NFL a bad rep. If the teams don't want to put up harsher penalties, the NFL should step in and do it.

if its retroactive and goes by arrests than Santonio Holmes already has two strikes

It would go from the time you are drafted or get signed by a team. Basically the day you start in the NFL, you're on the clock so to speak.

I would buy the Ravens and shred them down to nothing. Believe me I would move their hides to Los Angeles and rename the team. All the players would be on their way out.
