the black players that have been disciplined severely were punished for off field activities. vick, pac man, tank. all of their crimes were in their personal lives. nothing any of them did affected the outcome of a football game. now, the new england patriots are caught cheating in a game. they are exposed for systematically cheating and stealing football games. not even one suspension. that is racist, pure and simple. a brother cuts up in a strip club after the game and he is out for a year? a white man affects the outcome of games and calls into question the very integrity of the NFL and he is not suspended? now that is a double standard for you!
