Twitter hammers NFL over length of Jameis Winston suspension

Did the NFL cover up the Dwight Clark ALS announcement by announcing news Tom Brady's Super Bowl jerseys had been found the next day?

Jameis Winston has been suspended three games by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. He was found to have touched a female Uber driver back in 2016 “in an inappropriate and sexual manner” following a league investigation.

Winston, in a prepared statement, said he will not appeal this suspension and will therefore miss the first three games of the 2018 NFL season.

Social media was abuzz with reactions following this news. The big issue most people had was the length of this suspension, which, compared to other suspensions the league has issued for issues most feel are far less consequential, is pretty ridiculous.

With that being said, many on Twitter absolutely hammered the NFL for its decision.
