Raven RB Ray Rice lost his appeal of his suspension which had been levied based on his domestic violence incident with his wife. Adrian Peterson was charged with felony child abuse, which he subsequently pled down and now wants to be reinstated. From a legal standpoint, they probably should be reinstated. But from a public relations standpoint, it's a nightmare and Goodell cannot allow it.

I AGREE 100% U MADE SOME GOOD POINTS!!!!
You said it wouldn't matter to you if they were a bus driver you don't think they should get their job back. Would you expect the government/us to support their families? Every able bodied person should be allowed to have a job somewhere.
I still lean towards them getting back to work because professional athletes (and even big time college athletes) with spare time on their hands, usually proves even more dangerous. But you're right, from a PR standpoint, it's a nightmare.
I understand dashingscorpio but. I wouldn't expect the gov't to support them. I would expect them to find employment elsewhere, start their own company or both. As the song/saying goes "you don't have to go home but you can't stay here."
