So does this mean 3 games suspended this year and 3 games next year?

A bit old, but pretty spot on.

Not suprising..

Does this mean his suspension will run 3 games into 2015?

Not sure, but it sounds like it means a federal lawsuit.

Perhaps. At the very least, a NFLPA lawsuit.

If the federal government gets involved, you can best bet that Goodell may be out of a job as owners seek to replace him.

I still ponder how things would have looked now if the sponsors didnt overreact from the beginning. They seem to be the ones that pushed for all of this from the start. I mean, are you really going to sever an incredibly lucrative relationship over two cases that damaged image? Was the NFL really going to lose any fans over this issues, despite the media uproar? Doubtful.

Peterson should never have been placed on the exempt list, the Vikes should have stuck to their original plan. Might be in the playoff hunt right now if that was the case.

6 game suspension = 18 games missed, and a good chance we'll never again see him in a Viking uniform... gotta love being a MN sports fan

Apparently it's a 3 game suspension this year, plus 3 game checks. Suspension won't run into next year.
