NFL Suspensions Are a Slap on the Wrist

August 20, 1988

The National Football League's 30-day suspensions of six players who tested positive for drugs are meaningless and ineffective because they pose no threat to the players' careers.

Those suspensions will end, coincidentally or not so coincidentally, just when the regular season begins. Therefore, the NFL's actions can be seen only as a slap on the wrist, not only by the fans and management, but, more important, by the players.
