More Trouble for Britt

The Titans wide receiver, Kenny Britt, has been suspended for one game by the NFL after being arrested for driving under the influence. It’s not the first time Britt’s been in trouble with the law – it’s his eighth run-in with the police since he was drafted during 2009, according to Yahoo! Sports. Thursday night, after the 10-6 win over the New Orleans Saints, said he would “just take it on the chin”, meaning he wouldn’t appeal the NFL’s decision.

The Tennessean reported that Britt will be suspended in the week one game against the New England Patriots for “repeated violations of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.” By missing the game, Britt is estimated at losing a little more than $44,000. This same week, he was fined $9,915 for missing an important injury rehab session – and he complained about it on his Instagram account:

“Yu gotta be (expletive) kidding me.. walk back to dis.. Don’t dey know I have kids .. I’m tired of did (expletive).”

If he is bothered by a fine that’s under $10,000, will the $44,000 make an impact on his choices off the field? Fans aren’t too happy with him, and in an opinion piece by Titans fan Joshua Huffman he says, “With everything else that Britt has done, I’m amazed to see the forgiveness here. Other players are hit much harder. They’re either punished for much-less heinous crimes or as first-time offenders. If Britt has anymore police incidents in the future, then Goodell deserves partial blame.”

Is this a fair punishment for Britt?
