Sheldon pleads guilty...

Recommended Posts

the one NFL rule he did break was not informing his team of the offense. in light of his previous suspensions he might not be in position to be 'let off with a warning' 

prediction: he gets suspended for 1 or 2 games max

Maybe he could try the Tom Brady defense of, "The rules don't specifically say I would be suspended if I didn't quickly inform the team of that offense." 

What's good for the goose, and all that. Precedent has been set. :)

People keep saying traffic fines...  he pleaded guilty to resisting arrest.

I don't know what the penalty will be, but I think he might be getting a game or two minimum.

umm

resisting arrest is not a moving violation or traffic ticket

I would like to see the jets show some sack and handle the punishment, then the NFL may back off

Well there are different types of resisting arrest he pulled into a driveway and turned off his lights..Then there is the type when your fighting with cops trying to get away..

No suspension.  No NFL-related rule was broken, no one was harmed, and there is validity to the NFL suspending him for this plea.

Don;t get me wrong, our joke justice system SHOULD have put this idiot away, in real prison, for a while.

But since they didn't, the idiot in question should fight, in court, ANY suspension the league hands out.  

After all, we have seen how well that works.

unfortunately his act falls under violating the league personal conduct policy ( endangering a minor, and resisting arrest)  .     The players union gave the commissioner the power to give out any suspension he felt warrant - under that personal conduct policy .   ( Tom Brady ruling will eventually be overturned by the courts-).    It's not a right to play in the NFL, but a privelage.

He probably gets a game or two . We won't hear the suspension till the Nll decides to suspend him, and after  it's appealed by Sheldon Richardson. ( could take some time)

He wasn't charged with endangering a minor..

what if he robbed an ATM from his car, traffic ticket ?

the point is do you punish him or let him walk ?

I take a leadership position, set an example, and suspend him for the opener

Still driving  that fast in the car with minor in the backseat is an embarrassment to the league.( not to mention officer said he smelled weed- guy who was just suspended four games for failing multiple drug test.   I think that falls under personal conduct.

See Aldon Smith latest incident( hitting a parked car, and leaving the scene ) the Police dropped the Charges( Aldon Smith probably paid the car owner off- wouldn't press charges ) , and still didn't prevent the league from suspending him for a year.no one could prove he was drunk when he hit that car- but it didn't matter as it fell under the leagues personal conduct policy.( it's all subjective to what the commissioner thinks- eventually the union will have some guidelines the league have to follow- next collective bargain agreement.

Are you equating robbery and speeding?? Look I know you want Sheldon and Snacks gone among others so they can pay your Bro Mo whatever he wants..B) I do agree the team should handle punishment and a opening day suspension would be fine with me..

if they try to suspend him maybe he can pull a Brady and dodge the charges until his contract is up.

Aldon Smith was charged with a DUI hit and run and vandalism.. He also told a TSA agent at LAX he had a bomb..LOL

Last player that had a similar issue last year didn't receive any punishment from the NFL. I expect the same here. If it was domestic violence, child endangerment (charged not in the car), et al. he would get suspended, but not for this IMO.

Those charges were all dropped , as the owner wouldn't press charges( yes he probably paid the guy off) and the police couldn't prove he was under the influence(dui).    The incident at the airport was a different incident.( two different time frames)

The point is his charges were dropped , and he still got a suspension.    Richardson pleaded guilty, and in a way admitted he violated the league personal conduct policy.

Lmao at people saying  6 games.  If he gets 2 games I'll be surprised.  Odds are he accepted the penalty because he knew that it wouldn't lead to a suspension.

He manned up and now its time to take the punishment. At least he didn't try to deny it like some other pu**ies in the league.

Irrelevant. 100% hearsay. You suspend him for that, the appeal will be done and dusted before you even issue a statement.

Imagine the scenario ... cop who's a Bengals fan pulls over Big Ben, says he "seemed drunk, or stoned, and I'm sure he had HGH in a pocket or something". Does Ben get suspended??

If teams thought Ray Rice was still a dynamic running threat, a team would have signed him, he was not signed becuase he is an old, small RB, who is not worth the hassle he will bring. If he was worht the hassle, he would have been signed.

Doubt it.  This was a big one.  Beating your girl, dragging her into the elevator, on video for all to see is tough to explain to a fanbase.  No one wants games and practices picketed by women's rights groups.

irrelevant because there were two other adults in the car.  No one mentions this.  Even if the report was true, that the cop smelled weed, there is no proof that it was Sheldon smoking.

will get at least 2 games for conduct detrimental to league

I still maintain that sets a dangerous precedent. Not sure the league wants to go there.

4 Games.

He appeals, loses, takes it to the courts, Woody has the judge over for a BBQ and the suspension is ruled inappropriate.

Bingo, Sheldon missescno time
