    The NFL is an employer, just like any other company. They just happen to pay their employees large amounts of money in non-guaranteed contracts. Everyone has a right to play in the NFL under the rules of the contract negotiated by the union. Under the union contract, the commish has the right to suspend or discipline players for off-field conduct. There are no stipulations about convictions. The policy guards against conduct detrimental to the NFL and the player. No one can deny that Pacman's behavior is unacceptable. What you can argue is whether a year-long suspension is justifiable based on what he did or whether it is fair compared to other offenders' punishments.

    Fairness is what Pacman is trying to argue here. I don't think he has any belief that he won't be suspended for at least 8 games. His motivations here are to limit his suspension and save the money that he is losing. Nothing more.

      If Pacman were working in any corporate job, any one of his incidents would be grounds for termination. He might be able to sue for wrongful termination, but he probably would not win.
