The NFL's recent history of handing down suspensions (and making them stick) isn't good.
"A federal judge overturning [Tom] Brady's suspension that would've benched him for a quarter of a season," ABC reported in 2015.
"I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter, and I'm sorry for that," Goodell said in 2014.
