Re: Stallworth suspended for the entire season

Stallworth had also already been in the NFL's substance abuse program once before, which didn't help his cause

I think a year suspended is a little much. I feel terribly for the deceased family but it seems like the guy illegally crossed where he shouldn't have. No death is deserved there and I think Stallworth isn't entirely to blame.

Year suspension is steep for something that didn't yield jail time. Funny, it's like the exact opposite situation of the Vick scandal. Stallworth killed a human, served no time, but is suspended for a whole year. Vick brutally kills animals, serves 1.5yrs, and his suspension is time served.

...Strange relation there.
I thought he served like 20 some days in jail.

Vick got time served because he was in federal prison plus the 4 games this year, and we have no way of knowing how long he would have been suspended had his prison sentence not interrupted those two football seasons. I think that if Stallworth had been sentenced to a year in prison (say from August 2009 - July 2010) he'd probably still be looking at a suspension for all of the 2010 season. But he only have to serve 20+ days in jail during the off-season so we'll never really know.

Re: Stallworth suspended for the entire season

Stallworth still has 2 years house arrest. this suspension just makes it official, but he wasn't playing anyway.

Re: Stallworth suspended for the entire season

he was legally drunk at the time of the accident. the man WALKED in front of him. Stallworth is guilty of using piss poor judgement. should he penalized more? that's not my call. but i do smell a law suit coming. he is not the first bad boy in the N.F.L and most of the law is based on precedent. didnt Little of the Rams do pretty much the same thing? i think the code of conduct has been in the league for ever.

Yeah, but he might have been able to go to work. People on house arrest are regularly allowed to do that, afaik.

I also read he has 8 years probation. Certainly not light, but given the fact that his actions resulted in the death of another person, it's hard to argue otherwise.

Different commissioner when Little committed his crime. Goodell was especially cognizant of the belief that the league was way too light on Little and wasn't about to let that happen again

I don't remember. He was in a substance abuse program under orders by the league I believe.

Re: Stallworth suspended for the entire season

It is nice to see that these players are not above the law, but I have to agree, too many times leniency is shown to these Big Shot's who think that they are untouchable. They don't get that they should be setting the example for all the kids that idolize them. I worry about our future.

Go Skins
