NFL owners and their owners’ associations are a notoriously contentious bunch, and this week we had to put aside our politics to take stock of the NFL’s latest political scandal.
The NFL has been rocked by the ongoing investigation of its owners into whether they are guilty of collusion with the Clinton Foundation, and while there are no hard facts to back up the NFL owners’ accusations of collusion, they have been caught on tape discussing the perils of sex, nudity and sexual assault.
There are a lot of things to be outraged about in the NFL.
But this is something else.
The league’s most notorious sexual scandal has its roots in the late ’90s and early 2000s, when the league began to grow a bit too big for its britches.
A decade after the league’s first Super Bowl, the league had become an NFL franchise with a new commissioner, John Mara, who had his own sex scandal to clean up.
The new commissioner also took the league to the next level when he introduced a new, stricter, more punishing anti-pornography policy, and he also pushed a series of initiatives that included a new video policy and a new policy that made it harder for players to get away with using performance-enhancing drugs.
Mara was a powerful figure at the time.
The commissioner’s policies weren’t new; he had led the NFL from 1997 through 2002.
But the NFL had taken some dramatic steps forward in the early ’00s.
In 2002, the NFL instituted a new rule that made the league one of only four organizations that allowed players to be suspended for more than six games for a single violation of a personal conduct policy, as long as the suspension was for a nonviolent violation of the team’s rules.
It was a significant change in the league, and the new policy was met with considerable criticism.
Mara quickly issued an apology and a $500,000 fine for players who broke the rule.
Mara, now 49, was reelected as the league commissioner in 2008 and had a very good relationship with the league.
He’s also one of the owners who pushed through a new and more punitive personal conduct code, which became the NFL rulebook.
The rulebook was designed to give teams a new tool to punish players for non-violent violations of team rules, but it also created an avenue for teams to get around the rulebook’s strict penalties for violent and indecent conduct.
The old rulebook had penalties for players violating the rule book, but the new rulebook eliminated the possibility of players being suspended for violent or indecent conduct that violated team rules.
The result was that, in many cases, players were suspended for violating team rules and not for violent conduct.
That meant that teams could use the new personal conduct rulebook to discipline players for things like using a fake phone number, having sex outside the team facility, having more than three drinks in a night, drinking alcohol while in uniform, and being on the sideline during the game.
Mara’s rulebook is now in its ninth year, and it has changed some rules for some of the league teams.
Some of the rules that were removed from the rulebooks in the new edition were no longer subject to discipline, like for the use of a fake number or drinking alcohol on the field during the season.
But other changes, like the new physical standards for players, weren’t.
The rules about using a counterfeit cell phone, for example, were not subject to punishment.
Some other rules, like a policy banning offensive language and sexual imagery, were still subject to a fine.
But some of these changes had no effect at all.
For example, players now have to wear a jersey that identifies them as a member of the club team, which will now be the official uniform for all NFL teams.
There is also a new “NFL Style,” which is a new set of rules for players and coaches to follow.
The team that has the most “NFL style” players and/or coaches can wear will be the team that wins the game the most times.
So, in a sense, there’s a lot more to the NFL than just its rules and regulations.
In an attempt to change the culture of the franchise, the owners have also instituted a series that encourages teams to have more women on their rosters, a move that is already being criticized by some fans.
Some fans have argued that the move to make more women players on the rosters was too little too late, and that the NFL has a long way to go in getting to that goal.
The changes in the rule books will make it harder to get the best players, and more important, it will make the NFL more competitive in the long run.
It will also increase the likelihood that the owners and the fans will see some of their team’s stars on the roster get hurt, which has been the NFL trend.
And, as with most things in sports, this could make for some fun times down the road.
