Re: Integrity of the game
Today you took a stand by suspending Pac-Man Jones for the entire 2007 season, and Chris Henry for 8 regular season games, for conduct detrimental to the league. Neither one will be "Makin' it rain" for quite some time.
Here's your exact words...
"We must protect the integrity of the NFL. The highest standards of conduct must be met by everyone in the NFL because it is a privilege to represent the NFL, not a right."
You talk of maintaining the integrity of the NFL, and meeting the highest standards. Well, that begs this question. If integrity and standards mean so much to the NFL, what about Matt Millen?
Talk about conduct detrimental to the league...
Highest standards and Matt Millen? Now that's a joke. Millen has reached new lows in regard to the performance standards of a NFL GM. A brain damaged chimp could reach, and more likely exceed, the standards Millen has set. The fine stewardship of Matt Millen has led the Lions franchise to be the lowest ranked overall in not just the NFL, but in all of sports.
As for the integrity of the game? Matt Millen can't even spell "Integrity." We are talking about a GM who slurred Johnny Morton by calling him a "Faggot." He questioned the manhood of Scotty Anderson with the infamous "Where are your testicles?" quote. Millen violated the NFL's own "Rooney rule," and who knows how many civil rights laws, by not interviewing anyone other than Steve Mariucci for the then open Lions' head coaching job. That was a huge black mark against the NFL in regard to your ongoing initiative to encourage minority hiring.
Sure, Millen has gotten a few slaps on the wrist, and was hit with a $250K fine for the "Rooney rule" violation. But the league still thought enough of the incompetent boob to allow him on the influential NFL competition committee. How can that help the "Integrity of the game?"
Pac-Man Jones and Chris Henry are out of control thugs who act without thinking. You deserve kudos for finally drawing a line in the sand. Since it is a privilege, and not a right, to participate in the NFL, lets draw another line for Matt Millen. He has acted without showing sign of any coherent thought.
A year long suspension of Matt Millen would show you no longer tolerate buffoons. A lifetime suspension would show even more.
For the LOVE OF GOD, we Lions fans are begging you Mr. Goodell. Please suspend Matt Millen! Immediately!
