Roger Goodell Gets Tough on Donte' Stallworth -- Someone Had To
But Goodell, the NFL boss who has no tolerance for ill social behavior, was quick to declare Thursday that he is among the outraged. Only two days after Stallworth plea-bargained a jail term that now will involve -- excuse me while I vomit -- a mere 24 days in the clink, Goodell informed the Cleveland Browns receiver that he has been suspended indefinitely without pay. I'm not sure what it says about criminal justice in dirty Dade County, Florida when a football commissioner cracks a tougher whip than a state attorney. But here's yet another example of why Goodell steadily is becoming the best administrator in professional sports.
To hell with local corruption. This judge makes his own rules.
