Brett Favre Jenn Sterger: Will Favre Be Suspended?
Short Answer: No.
Long Answer: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been trying to crack down on the bad behavior exhibited by our professional football players, and the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy has given him the tools he needs to sanction players for off-field misconduct.
The PCP basically gives Goodell the discretion to sanction (or not sanction) players however he sees fit. There are no real guidelines in place which dictate certain sanctions for certain actions.
For example, if you are accused of sexual assault, you do not automatically receive a 4-6 game suspension.
If you are arrested for marijuana possession, you may not even receive a suspension.
This may not seem fair, but this gives Goodell the ability to make examples out of some players and cut other players some slack. Personal conduct is not black and white, so it makes sense that the policy regarding personal conduct also has some gray areas.
So will Brett Favre be suspended? I don't see it happening. If the NFL suspended every player who has sent a "sext" message...
Well, they'd have Tim Tebow.
