"The NFL didn't come down hard enough on Riley Cooper." - Chris Gasper

Donald Sterling got a lifetime ban from the NBA for making a racist comment.

Just last year, Riley Cooper of the Philadelphia Eagles was fined by the NFL for using a racial slur.

Why is there such a difference between the punishment in the NBA and NFL?

Steve Gasper and Michael Felger discuss the topic on Arbella Early Edition.

"What does that say about the NFL?" said Felger, "Does that say they are behind the NBA on this issue?"

"I think it's absurd that there was no suspension [for Riley Cooper]." said Gasper, "When you look at it from this [Sterling] standpoint, the NBA comes down really hard on one of it's owners... The NFL didn't come down hard enough on Riley Cooper."
