Don't think anyone is glazing over anything....just disagreeing with an offered opinion based on how NFL has handled prior incidents even when the accused was found innocent in court, but then punished that person for what the league THOUGHT they did.
I mean one can say that Reuben did nothing THIS time until they are blue in the face, shout it from Mt. Everest. But that will not make the least difference to the NFL and the way they appear to go about meting out judgment.
While there are some differences with the Elliott case...there are a lot of similarities....and there is precedence for a punishment regardless of whether we think Foster actually did anything or not. That doesn't matter to the NFL. What will matter is the accused testimony....if the NFL finds credence there....and/or if they believe Foster and his account. Basically that is what happened in the Elliott case.
To me no difference here. But we will see. So guess I will continue to miss the point, just as some are missing mine. And as I have said, I hope I am inaccurate in my assessment. But I have NFL history to go by.

What everybody is glazing over is that Foster has already been processed for ALL ten thousand prior violations and not a one of them impact the simple question:
What did Ruben do - THIS TIME?
The fact of the matter is that he has already been meted punishment and the League can not punish him AGAIN for the same violations. He did his part of the deal, complying with the terms and conditions of the Probation. He failed the 49ers, who specifically told him to cut ties with his girl friend. That's not the League, that's the 49ers.
So Goodell has a problem and he better get it right because he has an obligation to the PLAYERS of this League too to get it right. High profile athletes are targets for extortion too and he better get a firm grip on the steering wheel since this romp around the hotel smells like red herring. The DA in Florida and Santa Clara CA thought so too.
Punish him for what he ACTUALLY DID; not for what you want to think he MAY HAVE DONE.
I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you. However you are talking about Goodell, and he has shown over the years he defies logic time and again.
I guess I am assuming that is going to be the case and projecting the sh*t storm he will find himself in.
This case is different since Ruben has never actually been reprimanded before for DV by the League.

One writes out of one thing only—one’s own experience. Everything depends on how relentlessly one forces from this experience the last drop, sweet or bitter, it can possibly give. This is the only real concern of the artist, to recreate out of the disorder of life that order which is art. - James Baldwin
