Bernard Pollard unlikely to be disciplined by NFL

New, comments

Pollard made headlines with the note in his locker earlier this week. There was talk that there could be discipline from the league. Apparently there will not be.

It would have been ridiculous for the NFL to discipline Bernard Pollard for the note that hangs in his locker, but I would not have been surprised if that was something that Roger Goodell decided to do. Apparently, at least according to Ed Werder, there will be no discipline. That could be because the NFL has another player that might have literally killed someone.

If I could get on a soapbox for a minute about the Aaron Hernandez case- I keep hearing about how sad this is for Hernandez. No, you know who this is sad for? The family of the guy who was murdered. I am not convicting Hernandez of anything here, but he clearly knows what happened to that man. He is also clearly trying to keep authorities from figuring out what happened to that man. /offsoapbox

Back to Pollard for a minute, I am glad that he is a part of the organization. I can't wait to see him and Big Country get in a fight in training camp.
