Tank Johnson Gets 8 Games

New, comments

Maybe #32 should look at getting convicted of something.  The commissioner handed Tank Johnson an eight game suspension today.  The suspension could be reduced to six games if Tank Johnson does not have any more incidents.  Johnson is also allowed to participate in offseason workouts and play in preseason games.

Let's break this down.  Chris Henry who has multiple convictions and incidents without convictions gets suspended for 8 games.  Tank Johnson, who was plead guilty to a handgun charge and later violated his probation, was suspended for what will probably end up being 6 games.  This doesn't make any sense.

My feelings on #32 have been made clear.  I have no problem with him being suspended or the length of his suspension, BUT justice should be equally applied.  How people with convictions can get less time than people without convictions is beyond me.
