Each one carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. An initial hearing is scheduled for June 19.

Good. Such an idiot. All that money and he couldn't hire a driver.

It's sad that the NFLPA had to push the issue somewhat. It was fully self serving in it's agenda but Irsay should have been disciplined well before this.

how do you suspend an owner from his team? serious question.

"hey, we're grounding you from your team. you can't hang out at your facilities this summer. go on a cruise, buy a yacht and take it for a 2-month spin, go scuba dive in the mediterranean or something. but you can't hang out the the facilities for two months this offseason, young man. also, we're taking $1million of your allowance away. your parking lot revenue from the first preseason game might cover it. i hope you have learned your lesson."

A better recourse would be to take away his participatory rights in NFL owners meetings and decisions or something, but I don't know anything about how all of that stuff works.

They should be making every possible attempt to humiliate him over this.

That pretty much sums it up. He is way ahead of most people and all players when it comes to $. There really isn't that many things you can do to him within reason that would make him hurt financially. At the end of the day he is a junkie who makes poor decisions. This is much harsher than any player would ever receive.

6 games? Who comes up with this bull****. He should be gone at least a year.

Von smoked weed and he was gone 6 games. This guy drives drunk and was caught plastered on pills!

I'm looking forward to a lot of incoherent tweets about Bob Marley, the Colts, and Vicodin from new twitter member "Yasri Mij"

Even that ****ty police department. Two misdemeanors? Briefcase full of pills? Something doesn't add up but I'm sure somebody got paid.

Probably with the $29,000 in cash he had on him at the time of his arrest.

I don't think it's a slap on the wrist myself. Why on earth should an NFL team lose draft picks because an owner got a DUI? His getting arrested had nothing to do with gaining a competitive advantage on the field or anything like that.

Losing draft picks for an owners DUI makes as much sense as forcing Andrew Luck to sit on the bench for 6 weeks because the owner failed a drug test.

DUI and a briefcase full of prescription drugs. If that was me or you driving that car we'd be upstate for awhile.

Taking a draft pick wouldn't make sense since he wasn't caught cheating or breaking some NFL rule. They need to change the rules so that owners can be fined more money though. Something like a $5 million dollar fine would be more appropriate.

What about going over the cap in a year where there was no cap?

Remember what Robert Kraft was fined for Spygate? 250 thousand dollars.

Cheating to win three Super Bowls = 250k fine

DUI = 500k fine

I think its fair enough.

Im with the crew who said to take picks away as well though, that or maybe make him play with a lesser cap # for next year.

How many of you were calling for forfeited draft picks, major fines, and a reduced cap when Broncos front office guys were getting busted for DUIs?

"But they're not the owners so it's ok for them to get liquored up and go tearing down the highway!"

OK, but you still didn't answer his question. Do you think the court of law gave him his NFL fine and suspension?

He got it from Goodell and if it was you or me, Goodell wouldn't be seeing us in a county courthouse.

I just hope we don't see Irsay anywhere near a La Quinta Inn in Denver or we have ourselves McManus for possibly the whole season.

They shouldn't take draft picks. I said kick him out for the rest of the year.

I guess he can become a hero for alcoholics and drug addicts.

I read a article somewhere that Goodell fined him 300 bucks and gave him a 10 minute suspension or something close to that. Maybe it was on John Stewart. Anybody hear of this.
