Buccaneers No suspension for Aqib Talib

Quote:
At a time when the NFL has gotten so many things wrong, it’s refreshing to see the league get something right.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the league won’t suspend Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib.

This report contradicts a recent report from Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports that Talib “can expect” to be suspended four games.

Of course, Talib possibly will still be disciplined in the form of a fine. But if Schefter’s report is accurate, perhaps it means that the league finally has realized that it’s wrong, and potentially legally indefensible, to suspend a guy who did something on his own time at a time when all time was his own time, thanks to the padlocks on the doors to his place of work. (That said, Talib shouldn’t be fined under that same rationale, either.)

Talib faces charges of aggravated assault in Texas after allegedly pistol-whipping and firing shots at his sister’s boyfriend.

Plenty of folks think Talib and other players like Kenny Britt should be subject to suspension for conduct occurring during the lockout, possibly since those players have a widespread, and arguably deserved, reputation as bad guys. Still, the league has no business dictating behavior to grown men at a time when the league was forbidding those grown men from coming to work.
