    Stupid rule. Who cares if they toss back a few? If they can't due it on NFL anything, they will just go out to bars, and be even more public about it.

        is not legal. just saying it happened.

        Whenever we won, someone who was in college and used to play for us would buy us a bottle or 2 and we would pass it around in the field house before going home and getting ready to go out to someones house for a party/get together.

          this doesnt say that nfl players cant drink at all, just not at team parties and stuff....
          people can live without a drink for a day or 2...

            This is irrelevant because it is illegal...

              On Fridays we start having beers at about 3:30pm when we don't close till 5:30, we're sensible, only have one or two, sometimes if its really quiet and I'm doing paperwork I'll have a third, we've never had a problem.

                What is the point of this? Why shouldnt players be allowed to have a drink on the plane after a game? Not only that, but like you said it applies to everyone, a player or coach could have his family or friend/guest there and they cant have a drink, the owner cant have one...To me, its just uneccesary. Is it important that teams be allowed to have drinks? Of course not. But what exactly is so bad about having some drinks that he thinks it needs to be banned entirely.

                Goodell is trying to be a disciplinarian and clean up this league and Im all for it. But he walks a fine line. If hes gonna do this right, he needs to have the support of players/coaches/owners, etc., they have to feel that he's being fair in his methods. If the suspensions are excessive (as they have been) and players/coaches/etc feel they are having their freedom unnecessarily cut down upon, then comes resentment. And Goodell can only be a succsefull commish if he has the support and respect of the people in the league, and he needs to remember that.

                    That's what should be allowed. They are adults, and should be able to hold themselves responsible for their actions. You don't hear that Jim Sorgi was poundin down shots then going out to strip clubs and beating hoes down.

                    Besides, we all know they are gonna do it anyway. Nobody is gonna go and tell Papa Goodell that somebody had a beer at a team catered event.

                      Did you not hear about the baseball player who was DUIing after practice, got into an accident, and died? Teams just want to protect themselves from this.

                            Probably. I don't follow baseball very closely.

                              Well he was under the influence of Marijuana as well as being twice over the legal limit, and got into a crash days before. If anything, the MLB and his teammates should have stepped up and done something about it. He had all the signs for something bad to happen.

                              One situation from somebody who obviously had problems should not ruin it for everybody else.

                                There have been other incidents I believe. If players are drinking in the clubhouse, what are they going to do after? Drive home of course. There's no reason for that to happen.
