The list of NFL owners who are receiving the benefit of a double standard when it comes to discipline could be getting longer.
According to the Associated Press, a new indictment against California Senator Leland Yee accuses him of offering him to help pass league-friendly workers’ compensation legislation “in exchange for campaign contributions from an unidentified NFL owner.”
It’s unclear whether the unidentified NFL owner actually offered contributions in exchange for Yee’s support of the bill of whether the unidentified NFL owner was ever approached about the possible quid pro quo arrangement.
Either way, there’s a lot more to this story. And if the authorities ever believe they can provide that the unidentified owner broke any federal laws, someone may be forking over a $92 million fine to avoid prosecution and the inevitable NFL suspension that goes along with it.
