    Now how hard should players be punished? Take fan biase out of it, peoples lives are on the line how much would you fine and how long should players be suspended? I think this is a pretty big deal.

    Players are getting harsher punishments for some hits on the field but not for putting people's lives at risk through drunk driving.

    NFL is funny like that sometimes.

    If it were up to me, DUI's would be an automatic one game ban. If they're over the legal limit (which Mike Williams wasn't, apparently).

      I don't personally drink and drive, but let's be realistic here; punishment isn't going to be a great deterrent for these players.

      The league would be better off setting up some sort of service that not only will pick you up, but also drive your car home for you (because the real inconvenience of calling a cab is that you have to pick your car up in the morning). Make it extremely hassle free for the players so they actually use it.

      The owners have a little bit of an incentive to help fund this service as well because it will help clean up some of the image of the NFL as well as keep their players on the field (instead of sitting out due to suspensions).

      Now I don't know if this would actually work, but I think you would see better results out of it than you would throwing fines around. Though I guess fines at least can help charities.

      Edit:

      I would also like to point out that this problem isn't even really NFL related. I mean DUI's (and the consequences related to them) are a global problem and need to be fixed on a much larger scale. Though I'm fine with trying to clean up any part of the problem.

          There already is a free car service.

          These things happened despite the fact most teams in the league offer some form of car service intended to keep players (and coaches, trainers, scouts and front office executives) away from the kind of incident that Edwards found himself in last week. The league has a contract with a company through which individual teams can subcontract car services. (The NFLPA recently ended its relationship with Safe Rides Solutions and contracted with another company called Corporate Security Solutions; the NFL still uses Safe Rides Solutions for all non-players and NFL corporate employees.) The Jets are among the 22 teams in the league, according to information given to The Associated Press, which provide car service to players for their personal use. The Jets use PlayerProtect, a New York/New Jersey firm that provides armed security from current or former law-enforcement agents and a 24-hour driving service.

            That makes me think even less of these players.

              Nothing against you dude but they could just be ******* responsible, i mean grow the **** up. Its not really that hard to get a dd. And as far as giving them a free service, why? Some, not all, of these guys are making hundreds of thousands of dollars to a million dollars and they cant pay for a ******* cab fair.

                I was a bouncer in a bar for a year and a half. I was shocked by how many people would get drunk and then drive. A TON of people drink and drive. Way more than get caught. The problem is alcohol is big business in this country and nobody wants to mess with that too much by making punishment for drunk driving so severe that people drink less. It's not just an NFL problem. The NFL's punishments should be a distant second to legal punishment in severity.

                  I never said free. I did say the owner's have a reason to fund it, but I never said free.

                  And for everyone saying "it's not that hard to avoid DD", I don't disagree. However, even though it easy, that doesn't mean people will do it. And if they aren't going to avoid drunk driving, then why not attempt to help them out?

                    See my post. The league already has a car service for the players.

                        in College Station, we had a student organization that would give people rides home for free from the bars to keep people from drinking and driving, it was so ******* awesome.

                            That's how they all are now. The jurisdictions are all cash strapped, and a DUI conviction makes the city a lot of money.
