Word has leaked that the National Football League is considering increasing penalties for players accused of domestic violence. According to an anonymous NFL source speaking to the Washington Post, “A first offense could be four to six games, definitely more than two. A second offense might be a year.”
This potential new policy comes on the heels of intensely negative reaction to the two-game suspension Ravens running back Ray Rice received after Rice was charged with assaulting his then-girlfriend Janay Palmer, apparently knocking her unconscious.
The Baltimore Sun‘s Susan Reimer pointed out that Michael Vick was suspended “indefinitely” over his involvement in dog fighting. Maine Gov. Paul LePage said Rice should have been suspended for three years. “As a matter of fact, the team should have taken him out in the back shed and taken care of him,” he added.
