For those of you that look to SoD as yr primary source for sports news, we are pleased to report that NFL Commish Roger Goodell has put the kibash on the manslaughterer’s season. The WWL has a pretty good suite of analyses, for once, that side with Goodell. The most perceptive note, though, was in a comment on Len Pasquarelli’s piece:
I love how people act as though Goodell is out of line, if any of us were convicted of vehicular manslaughter WE WOULD LOSE OUR JOBS. That’s the facts, I’m an officer in the Army and if I get an DUI at all, regardless if someone is hurt or there is even an accident, my career is over. Bye-bye, do not pass go, do not collect $200. I make approx. 1/100 of Donte’s salary and I can afford a cab….

This Sumo does not speak for all SoD contributors, but I am glad that the NFL has translated Stallworth’s guilty plea into a first step toward appropriate professional punishment.
