National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell implemented the Personal Conduct Policy to deter players from getting in trouble off the field.
The fact of the matter is that the Policy is a failure.
According to WOIO-TV, via ProFootballTalk.com, Cleveland Browns running back Chris Jennings was arrested after punch a bouncer outside the Velvet Dog nightclub.
Even during the regular season when players are under the eyes’ of their organization players still are getting in trouble.
If the policy was being effective their would be longer periods of time where players aren’t getting in trouble. However, the longest period of time with out an arrest is anywhere from 20-30 days.
In the end, for the policy to be effective harsher penalties need to be handed out.
