At least we don't have to hear about the Steelers for a few days...maybe.

Meh. Paying for sex shouldn't even be illegal in the first place. And sports leagues shouldn't punish someone for an action that has nothing to do with the sport itself. If someone breaks a law, let them be punished by the legal system. Punishing someone twice for the same crime is Unamerican.

The NFL has been punishing players, coaches and owners for off the field incidents for decades now.

The NFL taking action would be nothing new and should be expected.

Címon man. This is foolish. The NFL is a product. Players and owners doing things off the field that damage the image of that product is detrimental to the profitability. Sure it has nothing to do with the competitive integrity on the field, but professional sports are MUCH more than what happens between the lines.

I do believe prostitution should be legal and regulated, and I believe that would go a long way towards reducing sex trafficking and exploitation of minors. However, that in no way means I think something like Kraft's actions should not be punished. If you go to one of those "Asian spa" "rub and tug" places, you know that what you are doing most likely involves human trafficking. Eff that nasty old dude.
