There are so many ways I could go with this story about the Cowboys’ Dez Bryant attacking his mother, but I’ll choose this one; NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been anything but consistent when handing out fines and suspensions, but he needs to get this one right or risk losing the ounce of respect fans around the league still have for him. If Goodell is going to suspend a player for four games for using Adderall and suspend a Pro Bowl QB for incidents for which he was never charged then I expect serious consequences for Bryant. And this is NOT his first off-field incident.
The Steelers’ Troy Polamalu appeared on the Dan Patrick Show this week and admitted he had hidden some concussion symptoms from team doctors before. If this surprises you, then you don’t know football. Nothing terrorizes players more than fear. Fear of letting teammates down or fear of not doing their job. Sounds barbaric but it’s fact.
Michael Vick may have learned a lot through his horrible actio...
