NFLPA Conduct Policy - Sean Taylor May Face Fines And Suspension

From the press conference regarding Taylor:
"The League has a Personal Conduct Policy that governs this type of situation and we will be discussing the matter with League officials. All questions regarding the League's Personal Conduct Policy should be directed to the League Office."



From the NFLPA internet site.......Joe Gibbs mentioned the league's conduct policy and here it is.......looks like fines and suspension in Mr. Tyalor's future


Conduct Policy
General Policy


Engaging in violent and/or criminal activity is unacceptable and constitutes conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the National Football League. Such conduct alienates the fans on whom the success of the League depends and has negative and sometimes tragic consequences for both the victim and the perpetrator. The League is committed to promoting and encouraging lawful conduct and to providing a safe and professional workplace for its employees.

Persons Covered by Policy


The following persons ("Covered Persons") shall be considered subject to this Policy: (i) all players under contract; (ii) all full-time employees of the National Football League, its Member Clubs and related entities; (iii) all rookie players once they are selected in the NFL College Draft; and (iv) all undrafted rookie players, unsigned veterans and other prospective employees once they commence negotiations with a Club concerning employment.

Prohibited Conduct


It will be considered conduct detrimental for Covered Persons to engage in (or to aid, abet or conspire to engage in or to incite) violent and/or criminal activity. Examples of such Prohibited Conduct include, without limitation: any crime involving the use or threat of physical violence to a person or persons; the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime; possession or distribution of a weapon in violation of state or federal law; involvement in "hate crimes" or crimes of domestic violence; theft, larceny or other property crimes; sex offenses; racketeering; money laundering; obstruction of justice; resisting arrest; fraud; and violent or threatening conduct. Additionally, Covered Persons shall not by their words or conduct suggest that criminal activity is acceptable or condoned within the NFL.

Persons Charged With Criminal Activity


Any Covered Person arrested for or charged with conduct prohibited by this policy will be required to undergo an immediate, mandatory clinical evaluation and, if directed, appropriate counseling. Such evaluation and counseling must be performed under the direction and supervision of the NFL Vice President of Player and Employee Development. Failure to cooperate with evaluation and counseling (including being arrested for or charged with additional criminal activity during the evaluation and counseling period) shall itself be conduct detrimental to the National Football League and shall be punishable by fine or suspension at the discretion of the Commissioner.

Persons Convicted of Criminal Activity


Any Covered Person convicted of or admitting to a criminal violation (including a plea to a lesser included offense; a plea of nob contendere or no contest; or the acceptance of a diversionary program, deferred adjudication, disposition of supervision, or similar arrangement) will be subject to discipline as determined by the Commissioner. Such discipline may include a fine, suspension without pay and/or banishment from the League. Any Covered Person convicted of or admitting to a second criminal violation will be suspended without pay or banished for a period of time to be determined by the Commissioner.

Persons Engaged in Violent Activity in the Workplace


Every employee is entitled to a safe and professional workplace free of criminal behavior, violence and threats against personal safety. Criminal conduct in the workplace or against other employees is prohibited. Any Covered Person who commits or threatens violent acts against coworkers, regardless of whether an arrest is made or criminal charges are brought, shall be subject to evaluation, counseling and discipline, including termination of employment.

Duty to Report Prohibited Conduct


To ensure the effective administration of the policy, the League must be advised when a Covered Person engages in Prohibited Conduct. The obligation to report an arrest or criminal charge extends to both the person involved and to the Club or League entity for which he or she works.

Persons subject to this policy who are arrested or charged with Prohibited Conduct must report that incident to their Clubs or to NFL Security at (800) NFL-1099. Failure to report an incident will constitute conduct detrimental and will be taken into consideration in the final determination of discipline under this policy.

Appeal Rights


Any person disciplined under this policy shall have a right of appeal, including a hearing, before the Commissioner or his designee. Except for the enforcement of discipline, no other requirements set forth in the policy will be stayed pending the completion of the appeal.

Further Policy Details:
List All Persons Covered by Policy Prohibited Conduct Persons Charged With Criminal Activity Persons Convicted of Criminal Activity Persons Engaged in Violent Activity in the Workplace Duty to Report Prohibited Conduct Appeal Rights

Actually, wasn't Jamal suspended during the season? It was his jail time that was done in the offseason. I'm pretty sure the NFL is going to slam ST, and the only way suspensions work is if they are during the season.

Yes, he served his suspention during the season. However, it was actually the legal system, I belive, that worked around the NFL season and allowed him to serve his jail time in the offseason. I'm pretty sure he is still under house arrest or somthing like that now.

This isn't anything really new. If Taylor is acquitted or the charges are dropped, the NFL likely won't punish Taylor. If he's convicted or cops a plea, then we have something to worry about.

Re: Nflpa Conduct Policy-sean May Face Fines And Suspension

Well, either way, it sounds like Gregg Williams will have to have the defense prepared to go without Sean Taylor. I have no doubt he'll have the defense ready, but this does suck! The only thing positive that I can see coming out of all this is that maybe the Redskins will get back something on Taylor's contract for this year.

The only thing positive I can pull out of this is that if ST is as dumb the FL prosecutors would have us believe, something like this was bound to happen sometime - better now than in the regular season.
