Where does it say they are lowering the penalties?

The change that was made was to give the commissioner the ability to use discretion in assessing penalties. As an example if one organization flagrantly violated HRR accounting rules to the tune of a 20% discrepancy and is a first time violator they would be fined 1 mil. and a 1st round draft pick. What if the commissioner wanted to fine that team 5 mil. and 2 1st round draft picks for such a flagrant offense. Based on the CBA he doesn't have that option.

See, it could go both ways
