Jolly: What's the Story?


First, I should disclaimer this by saying that I don’t know the story; I’m just merely asking a question. Johnny Jolly receives an indefinite suspension for (all that is known to the public) 200g of codeine. Yet Michael Vick is connected to a shooting at his birthday party, no discipline. Vince Young gets into a fight at a strip club, no punishment. I don’t mean to imply that Vick and Young should face such severe penalties – although one might argue that for Vick…I thought he was supposed to keep his nose clean to stay in the NFL…I’m just wondering why no fines, no suspensions.

Goodell has a track record of doling out hefty sentences in order to “clean up” this league, but these past two rulings have me questioning what is going on. Is this so much of a QB driven league, that they get preferential treatment?  But then that didn’t work out so well for Big Ben.

So what’s the story? What is it that we don’t know, because I’d like to know?
