NFL Justice??


I just ran across an article where the Jets DE Shaun Ellis was suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. For ONE game!!! From the article:

Ellis Article

 

New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis was suspended without pay Monday for the team's regular-season opener and fined $100,000 by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

His violation?

 

The 31-year-old Ellis was arrested in November and charged with possession of marijuana, speeding and driving without insurance after being pulled over by police in Hanover, N.J., a few miles from the team's training facility in Florham Park.

One game and a fine? For criminal offenses? And Garrett Hartley gets FOUR games for taking a pep pill??  Charles Grant and Will Smith get four games for taking something they had no idea contained a banned substance?  Is it no wonder why the NFL catches so much flak over how they run their substance abuse policy?
