San Fransisco 49ers’s Ahamad Brooks could be charged for allegedly striking a teammate three times in the head with a bottle. With the DA’s office still trying to figure out how to charge Brooks, many think he might escape any discipline from the league. According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Ahmad Brooks still might face discipline from the league even if the DA’s office decides to drop the case. Barrows cites the new CBA for his evidence to his point. Here’s the relevant passages from the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy: * The specifics of the disciplinary response will be based on the nature of the incident, the actual or threatened risk to the participant and others, any prior or additional misconduct (whether or not criminal charges were filed), and other relevant factors * With respect to repeat offenders, the Commissioner may impose discipline on an enhanced and/or expedited basis. In such cases, the timing and nature of the discipline will be determined by the Commissioner based on several factors including but not limited to: the severity of the initial charge and later charge; the facts underlying the later charge; the length of time between the initial offense and later charge; and the player or employee’s compliance with counseling and other programs. Following a full investigation and/or resolution of the proceedings, the Commissioner will review the matter and make any appropriate adjustments. The second bullet point is what might do Ahmad Brooks in. In 2008, he was accused of punching a woman in the eye. Also Brooks college years didn’t do him any favors. His behavior there led to him being kicked off the team. With the lack of national attention this story is receiving, I hope Brooks is visiting Hernandez in prison thanking him. Need NFL Tickets?
