Of course they did. Because not only does Goodell love handing out suspensions for unproven incidents, he also likes to wait until the last possible second and give teams no time to prepare. Or at least that's what he does to us.

Yeah, it's not Talib's fault, it's Goodell's. Right...

Considering nothing has been proven legally regarding Talib's case and the fact that the high majority of witnesses say he didn't fire it, yes, it is Goodell's fault. Glad to see you're catching on.

but goodell isnt only worried about the legal system. he is also worried about papers and tv's running "NFL player arrested again" stories.

Oh well. That isn't a reason to punish people before they have been proven guilty. What he had suspended Mike Williams for a game for his DUI in which he was clearly wrongly accused and all charges were dropped?

Talib has had multiple run-ins with the player conduct policy, while Williams hasn't.  Talib being in any negative news story isn't a good sign for the NFL.

I agree his Pryor troubles hurt his chances, but the facts are that he was at home with family, not out in a club or anything, and he turned down a plea deal because he is confident he will be found innocent. I just don't see how you can punish the guy before his court date when the facts are known and the real judge makes a decision. At that point, if he is found not guilty and beats all charges, then he should not be punished by the league at all. If he is found guilty then he'll be doing real jail time and being suspended won't really matter anymore.

If he settles, pays off the "victim" or takes a plea....THEN it will be Goodell's turn to determine a fitting punishment.

As someone else noted, the danger in the player conduct policy is that people can hunt down players with a motive to get them suspended. This was an important ruling by Goodell, who often seems to want to fine everyone, suspend frequently. If he's less zealous, a little more discerning, it could go a long way toward better PR for the NFL.

Very suprised the hammer did not land squarely on his head.  I am sure after litigation with his (Roger Godell) legal team, and advisors, they warned him opf the repercussions of following through with suspending the player when so much circumstance surrounds the players.  There are many factors that play a role in this matter, but I am certain that Godell wanted to hammer Talib and Britt with all the power of Mjolnir.
