I’m heading out to Titans practice shortly and will bring you reaction from the team and from Vince Young, assuming he talks, following his Sunday citation for misdemeanor assault in a strip-club fight.
For all the debate Young has stirred up in his four seasons with the Titans, he’s been a good citizen. Does this development dent that résumé?
Under the personal conduct policy, the league tends to be lenient for first-time offenders. But with all of the negative attention brought to the NFL by Ben Roethlisberger this offseason -- and I’m not comparing what Young did to what Roethlisberger is alleged to have done -- the spotlight on players got even brighter.
I wonder if commissioner Roger Goodell is a bit quicker to discipline a player who put himself in a bad situation now.
It’s been categorized as equivalent to a traffic citation and comes with a maximum fine of $500. Do the setting and behavior make it bigger than that to Goodell?
Will Young be disciplined by Goodell? Should he be?
I’m curious to hear where you stand.
