Could StarCaps case influence Favre situation?

For nearly two years, the league office has been trying to implement four-game StarCaps suspensions against Vikings defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams.  The effort has been thwarted by a legal challenge that has, to date, prevented the suspensions from being imposed.

The situation also has delayed suspensions of Saints defensive end Will Smith and former Saints (now Bears) defensive end Charles Grant.

So with Vikings quarterback Brett Favre now facing a suspension for violation of the Personal Conduct Policy — and the league reportedly putting the matter on the fast track — a reader has raised a comment that is worthy of repeating.

Could the league’s frustration with the ability of the Vikings to avoid the competitive impact of losing two key cogs of their defense influence the speed with which the NFL pursues the Favre situation?

We doubt that there will be a connection, but we have a feeling that more than a few Vikings fans will wonder whether there’s a link, if indeed the Favre investigation, discipline, and appeal move quickly — and if Favre ultimately is suspended.

    So what Ray Edwards said would be true then? I mean if they are going to go out of their way to do something, that shows that the NFL is indeed against the Vikings.

    Mike, I generally refrain from blasting content on this website. It’s yours and you can talk about what you like. But this may be the worst post I’ve seen in four years of reading this website. Complete and utter nonsense. At least it’s not another post with you debating with yourself about fast tracking the Farve case. But serisously, there are 6 football games right now that are within ten points, and this is what you choose to post?

    So you’re not even going to pretend to have news or rumors or anything when obsessively writing about this story for the rest of eternity? That’s going to be fun for us.

    “So with Vikings quarterback Brett Favre now facing a suspension for violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.”
    This sentence needs an edit. It hasn’t been determined that Brett Favre violated anything yet.

    Because in making this post it took precious minute(s) away from something else.
    Was it worth your time to bitch about this?

    Ray Edwards seems to have a point. It would be just like Goodell to use that against the Vikings. I hear he is hoping the Vikings leave Minnesota because he thinks it is the state’s fault.

    Florio: “So with Vikings quarterback Brett Favre now facing a suspension for violation of the Personal Conduct Policy”
    ——————-
    Gee Florio, when did that happen ??? It sure is nice to see that Florio is judge, jury, and executioner … all before even a single charge has been proven, or hell, even filed.
    There are rumors that Florio is supposedly a lawyer, although I’ve never seen any actual PROOF of it. Can you imagine this drivel coming from an ACTUAL lawyer ???
    Can you imagine being a client of Florio’s in court ??? I see the conversation going something like this:
    Florio: “son, you’re going to the big house for a loooong time”
    Client: “but Mike, I haven’t even been charged with anything yet”.
    Florio: “doesn’t matter” !
    Good god Florio, this is just sad.
    I was making a joke yesterday when I said that Florio would have 30 Favre posts over the next 2 weeks. Hell, it’ll be that many over the next 2 days. I can only imagine how many there will be on Monday alone. Maybe by then Florio will have Favre facing the electric chair.
    Hell, maybe Florio can get Favre charged with the JFK assassination. I know what you’re thinking “but Favre wasn’t even born yet”.
    Florio: “doesn’t matter !”
    You are a sad, sad man Florio.

    Florio….do you REALLY think the NFL will suspend Favre and keep him from going back to Lambeau?
    Yeah, right. Not happening. He will be warned and that will be the extent of the punishment.
