    Default Roger Goodell Blows

    GEORGETOWN, Ky. -- Linebacker Rey Maualuga of the Cincinnati Bengals has been fined two game checks by the NFL and will forfeit an additional portion of his signing bonus for 2010 for a drunk-driving violation.

    Maualuga was fined by the NFL on Tuesday under the league's substance abuse policy. He will forfeit two weeks' worth of his 2010 bonus, as well.

    The second-year player from Southern California pleaded guilty to drunken driving in February and received a suspended sentence. Police said he hit a parking meter and two parked cars in northern Kentucky. He was charged with drunken and careless driving.

    The NFL was considering a one-game suspension for Maualuga but decided against it after listening to the arguments of his attorney, David Cornwell, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    The 2009 second-round pick had a productive rookie season for the reigning AFC North champions, recording 63 tackles and one sack.

    But the Jan. 29 incident put a blemish on his fast start. He ended up with two years' probation and a revoked driver's license.

    He underwent treatment at a Charleston, S.C., facility while working to improve his left ankle that was fractured in December.

    Maualuga is the second Bengal to escape suspension this summer. The first was running back Cedric Benson.

    Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement last Friday that he's satisfied Benson understands his responsibilities as an NFL player and a public figure. Benson met with Goodell and other league officials two weeks ago.

    Police in Austin, Texas, charged Benson with misdemeanor assault last month for allegedly punching a bar employee in the face. Benson has denied the charge

    I have no problem with Big Ben being suspended. However he was never charged.
    This guy was smashed and lucky he didnt hurt anyone and gets a slap?
    What a joke. It's all about image and how much publicity you get if you tarnish the NFL. Big Ben was wall to wall news coverage...ESPN all over it. These other cases...yeah they make the news but not with all the fanfare. Goodell Sucks!

    I'm gonna move this to the "NFL Room" since it's really not related to the Steelers...

    I guess it's just interpretation, and definitely not malicious... It was an article about a Bengals player and the commish, and you tossed-in a small Ben comment at the end. You know it... If anything, it should'a been in the "hate room"... We've got alot of different taverns for various topics.

    BTW, when posting an article, please include a link because we've had a few complaints about it in the recent past... There's even a stickied thread about it.... Thanx...

    I have a vacuum cleaner that I occasionally call the Goodell - if a bung comes out of one end of it, it sucks and blows simultaneously.
