Union, NFL at Odds Over Personal Conduct Policy

Saying the NFL is "making things up as they go along," players' union chief DeMaurice Smith wants the league and its owners to take disciplining players out of the hands of Commissioner Roger Goodell. Already at odds over the process used to punish Ray Rice, the dispute heightened Tuesday when the league suspended Vikings running back Adrian Peterson for the rest of the season for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son. The central issue remains the same for both sides: Finding a way to fairly hold players accountable for transgressions that damage the credibility and image of the league and its players. The union wants disciplinary power now held by Goodell to be handled by a neutral arbitrator. The league, so far, doesn't agree.
