 OT:Goodell shows "the hypocrisy of the NFL" w/Irsay dealings
I don't always agree with Ryan Clark, but I hear what he is saying here.


Quote:
Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark criticized commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday, saying the fact that he's yet to punish Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay "shows the hypocrisy of the NFL."

"Right now, if Jim Irsay is going to represent this league, represent the Indianapolis Colts, going to be on TV at the owners meetings, trying to bring a Super Bowl to Indianapolis after what he's done? It shows the hypocrisy of the NFL and also Roger Goodell in the way that he deals with players and the way he deals for the people he works for," Clark said during an appearance as a guest analyst on ESPN's "First Take."

"He's always said, 'Well, I don't work for the owners.' That's not true. Because in the CBA negotiations, you were sitting with the owners."

It’s become fashionable over the last two days to accuse the NFL of applying a different standard to Colts owner Jim Irsay than the rules that are applied to players. The truth, however, is that the NFL hasn’t applied a double standard when it comes to Irsay.

Yet.

The NFL has treated Irsay no differently than players facing first-offense accusations of driving while impaired. In those cases, discipline isn’t imposed until the legal process has concluded.

For Irsay, formal charges haven’t even been filed. The league, under the standard applicable to players, won’t take action until charges are filed and resolved.

I will wait to see how this plays out before making a judgement, and Ryan Clark should have done the same. Clark is one dude that really runs his mouth a little to much sometimes.
