Roger Goodell Still Might Discipline Aqib Talib Even Though All Charges Dropped

I don’t understand this.

First, this happened during the lockout and secondly all the charges were dropped. To me that means it never happened and there shouldn’t be any punishment for Talib.

But of course the NFL has it own set of laws.

Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib escaped the law in Texas, but may still have a date with Judge Roger Goodell.

Charges of aggravated assualt with a deadly weapon against Talib were dropped Monday, before he was scheduled to go on trial next week, with a possible 20 year prison sentence if convicted.

But the NFL hasn’t ruled on whether it will discipline Talib for his involvement in the March 2011 shooting. League spokesman Greg Aiello told Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times the league plans to review the case. Talib’s lawyer said the league requested a copy of the dismissal order.
