When players commit DUI offenses Justin Evans Jersey , the outcome is somewhat predictable, because the punishment has been collectively bargained through the union. When non-players do the same, the discipline becomes more fluid.
Cardinals G.M. Steve Keim, who was arrested for DUI on July 4, faces a potential fine and suspension, per a source with knowledge of the situation. The duration of the suspension and/or the magnitude of the fine can’t be predicted with any degree of precision.
In recent years, suspensions have been imposed on multiple front-office employees who were arrested for DUI. In 2010 Earl Mitchell Jersey , the league suspended former Lions CEO Tom Lewand for 30 days, with a reduction to 21. The NFL also fined Lewand $100,000.
In 2013, the Broncos suspended executives Matt Russell and Tom Heckert after separate DUI incidents. Russell, who crashed into a police car, was absent from work 60 days. He later received a seven-month prison term, but he missed no further employment due to a work-release allowance. Heckert received a 30-day suspension.
The following year Marlon Humphrey Jersey , the NFL suspended Colts owner Jim Irsay six games and fined him $500,000 for driving while impaired.
Multiple assistant coaches have faced no suspension after DUI incidents in recent years, including Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Packers safeties coach Darren Perry. In 2006, then-Lions assistant Joe Cullen was suspended one game and fined $20,000 after a pair of vehicular arrests — one of which happened after he showed up naked at a Wendy’s drive-through.
For Keim, his blood-alcohol concentration will likely influence the outcome. For now, that number isn’t known.
Even if Keim is suspended LaAdrian Waddle Jersey , the punishment doesn’t have quite the same impact on executives as it does on players and coaches. Keim, even while suspended, will be able to do much of the same work that he would be doing anyway, especially as it relates to the scouting of college players.
The non-injury grievance filed by the NFL Players Association against the NFL over the league’s new anthem policy could result in an arbitrator rolling things back to the way they were before May. The discussions between the union and the league over the issue could lead to something even more significant: A permanent solution to the problem.
But here’s the problem with that: It should have happened two years ago.
The moment that Colin Kaepernick was spotted sitting during the anthem before a preseason game and the NFL acknowledged that the policy it created encouraged but didn’t require players to stand, the NFL should have engaged the NFLPA to come up with a new policy. But the NFL presumably didn’t want to have to make any concessions to fix the problem that it (i.e., one of its lawyers) created by using the word “should” instead of “must” before “stand.”
If someone had had the foresight in August 2016 to realize how the situation could unravel for the league, the concession would have been made then. Because now the union is in position to leverage an even greater concession — especially if the grievance prevails.
And the grievance could prevail. The argument is that the right to protest existed (as created and reiterated by the league) before May Marcus Cannon Jersey , and that the league took that employee right away without engaging in bargaining.
Remember when a couple of reporters working for the NFL tried to call the new policy a “compromise“? Remember the reaction that there can be no “compromise” if the players are shut out of the process? The grievance, if successful, will force the league to make the compromise that didn’t happen in May, that should have happened in August 2016, and that needs to happen if the league wants to solve this problem once and for all.
