NFL player suspended for using Twitter account to express disgust with player’s Twitter posts
Updated November 15, 2019 16:14:00 Live updates: NFL player suspensions | NFLPA executive director to meet with players and NFLPA members | NFL player fined $10,000 for using his Twitter account for disparaging a player and an NFLPA official source BBC New Zealand – The NFL has suspended its commissioner for one game, but the NFLPA will meet with the players and league to discuss what will happen next.
The NFLPA Executive Director Mike Tannenbaum will meet next week with the league’s executive committee and its leadership to discuss the matter.
The league is also meeting with players to discuss how to proceed after the league suspended Commissioner Roger Goodell for the second time this year for violating the collective bargaining agreement.
It was the first time since Goodell was first suspended in September 2018 that the league has suspended the commissioner twice in a calendar year.
The suspensions, which were announced Wednesday, also included the owners, the owners’ association and the NFL Players Association.
The commissioner was given a two-game suspension for his involvement in an off-field incident that occurred during the November 7-10 preseason game between the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts.
That incident involved Goodell using his personal Twitter account and social media accounts to express displeasure about the behavior of a player.
The incident came after an ESPN report that the NFL has begun a process to identify former players who have been suspended for behavior that includes “harassment or verbal abuse.”
The league suspended the player for the remainder of the preseason.
In response, the league released the following statement:Statement by Commissioner Roger for Commissioner Goodell:I believe the league should be able to protect itself from the distractions and negative publicity caused by the actions of the Commissioner and the union.
It is critical to the integrity of our game and to the reputation of our players that we have a strong and credible leadership structure that is committed to the protection of players and their safety.
I also believe the commissioner and union have a shared responsibility to hold the commissioner to account for his actions and for the actions taken by the union to protect players and the league.
The suspension also includes the owners of the Carolina, Indianapolis and New Orleans franchises who have agreed to pay fines of up to $25 million to the NFL and the players’ association to resolve the matter, according to league officials.
The punishment comes amid heightened scrutiny of the NFL, and in part in response to a number of incidents, including the suspension of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers last month and the resignation of former New York Jets defensive lineman Antonio Smith.
The union said that its leadership has been discussing the situation with the commissioner, and the parties are working together to address the issues at hand.
In the past, the NFL executive committee has met weekly to discuss players’ concerns and how to address them, league officials said.
The league also has met on multiple occasions to discuss player safety and the issues that affect players.
This suspension is a reflection of the strong and serious concerns of players who believe the actions by Commissioner Goodell are a violation of the collective barges rights of all players.
We have reached a new agreement, and we will continue to work with Commissioner Goodell to address these concerns.
I have confidence that we will be able resolve this issue.
The NFL will be holding its next regular season game on Sunday, Nov. 29 against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
The players are expected to meet next Monday at a conference in Orlando, Fla.
and will meet again on Tuesday at the league meeting in Atlanta.
