Report: New NFL Policy for Domestic Violence Offenses

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL is going to put in place a strict policy against domestic violence offenders moving forward. The insider goes on to indicate that the league will suspend first-time offenders six games and place a life-time ban on second-time offenders under a new domestic violence policy. 

This is obviously in direct response to the Ray Rice criticism that the NFL has received since suspending the Baltimore Ravens running back just two games after his recent domestic violence issue earlier this year.

A life-time ban for repeat offenders may be seen as overkill, but it’s something the league needed to do. From a PR standpoint, this is most definitely a win for Roger Goodell and Co.
