I'm sure Kraft will face some discipline at the conclusion of his case even if he's acquitted or the charges are dropped. When Lev Bell got pinched for DUI and weed, he didn't get suspended until the conclusion of his case. Ben's suspension came at the conclusion of the criminal investigation in Ga. Even though they determined no crime was committed, the optics of the accusations were enough to get him suspended. That's the way it is with most suspensions for criminal accusations, unless you have a video of a guy punching his girlfriend in the face. Brown may very well face discipline from the NFL if he decides he doesn't want to retire and comes back (which I suspect he will) and I would bet if a team did sign him tomorrow, he'd be on the exempt list before the ink dried. He wasn't suspended by the NFL, he was cut by the team. His contract with the Pats is between him and the Pats. The NFLPA will argue he's due the money, the Pats lawyer will argue he isn't and an NFL arbiter will make a ruling. All the other stuff like who did what and who got what punishment and who didn't won't factor in to the arbitration.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

You're absolutely right. The two issues are completely unrelated on both the legal and the NFL side. All I'm saying is what's right is right.

You would think a billionaire ......nevermind

I agree. Don't think for a second I'm sticking up for Kraft
