So the bounty investigation is clear as mud. And there's no closure. I predicted the problems with the investigation in March. Why the New Orleans Saints Bounty Penalties are Too Harsh In particular section 4 of this. Goodell strengthened the personal conduct policy after all the PacMan Jones BS, where PacMan would do gross things, and the Titans either didn't punish him or did delayed punishment (IIRC, with one of the spitting incidents, they didn't suspend him for a game until after the Texans played the Titans). The point of the strengthened personal conduct policy was that legal justice goes too slow, so instead, he would investigate things and have the right to punish players even if the justice system didn't. Problem with this is that he has to make up bleep as he goes along. And when you make up bleep, not everybody is going to be cool with it, and you may end up with some odd results with relative justice for different offenses. Some media member asked me about the policy a while back, and I put together a Q&A here: Presumption of Innocence or Everybody Knows Theyre Guilty?
