"Does any other league have anything like this?" - Michael Felger

The NFL took on a lot of criticism after the league suspended running back Ray Rice for two games after he assaulted his current wife.

On Thursday, Roger Goodell admitted the league "didn't get it right," and announced tougher penalties for players involved in domestic violence.

Michael Felger joined Arbella Early Edition to discuss the new rules.

"Does any other league have anything like this?" asked Felger. "Not that I know of. I've never heard of any other league formalize it in this fashion. There's conduct detrimental to the league and all of those things you can sort of loop into that."

"Was it reactionary? Of course, and I think it was very predictable. The two gamer [suspension] for Ray Rice was so bad.

Trenni Kusnierek is happy Goodell was able to admit he was wrong.

"I'm not going to harp on a guy for finally admitting he made a mistake," said Kusnierek. "If you're going to do it, he did it, he changed it."
