Joey has a point

This week, Joey found out that Jags receiver Matt Bryant was suspended for a couple of games for cocaine possession, but not fined.  And he's appearling the suspension.
 
And Joey was fined $20,000 for talking bad about the refs - in a bad call that was never reviewed - and had no recourse.
 
He wondered what the NFL is coming to, and why Goodell is applying this sort of a standard, and what message he is sending.
 
And I would say "a mixed one."  Goodell's problems are far-reaching, and at the season outset - when he declared he was going to be tough on players - I made a comment that it was going to be difficult to do.  It appears as though I was right.
